I usually only lurk on this forum rather than posting comments (I save those for other shows) but I was so appalled by this show that my teeth are set on edge with outrage.
One of the things that liberals are usually accused of are of being "elitist" and Bill brought that attitude in spades. Maybe if he actually ventured into the "real world" most of us live in, he'd realize that not everyone is able to shop at Whole Foods, have the time and money to join a gym or have a personal trainer, and live what he feels is a "healthy" lifestyle.
Unfortunately, junk food is cheaper (and faster!) than good food and many people in this country live in whats called "food deserts". They don't have good access to fresh fruits and vegetables and can't afford quality meats. Not to mention the time it takes to prepare such foods (I'm a failed vegetarian - I know all about healthy food and how much time it takes to shop and prepare it). Kind of hard to eat like a rich person living in So. Cal when you're working 2 jobs and having long commutes. And there is also more to many health issues that are beyond people's control. Genetics play a part and science is finding viral infections may play a part in autoimmune diseases, but don't tell Fat Shamers like Bill all that.
Oh and as far as Bill wanting the world to get back to normal (cause, God Forbid, he wants to go to a restaurant and hang with friends), maybe he should get off his high horse and come to NY for a visit. He can see the newspaper stories about U Haul trucks with rotting bodies because a funeral home became overwhelmed and didn't know where to put them. He can read the first hand accounts from the folks who work in hospitals and what they've been dealing with. Part of the reason for the "NY Pause" was not only to save lives but to prevent the hospitals from being totally overwhelmed, and to be honest, the "Pause' really came a few weeks too late to prevent that from happening. But people like Bill Maher really don't care about that - they care about their entitled "wants" and if the old people and the "sick" people (who apparently in Bill's view bring that upon themselves), and the working folks who man the kitchens where Bill likes to eat, and pick up the garbage, and clean houses, and work at hospitals, and meat packing plants, die, well, hey! People gonna die any way! I'm really sorry to see that Bill Maher seems to be a believer in Social Darwinism - I always wanted to see Bill live - but after this - the guy won't ever get a dime of my money.
