Liberal HBO host Bill Maher fumed at woke leftists during his show on Friday over a recent incident that showed how “nothing is ever good enough for these people,” saying that woke leftists were harming that Democratic Party. Maher began his rant shortly after reading polling that showed that Latino voters sided more on the political Right than the political Left. “I was reading also about Lin-Manuel Miranda this week, he of Hamilton fame, and, you know, he won a Pulitzer Prize for it. He’s got a new musical, ‘[In] the Heights,’ which is about Washington Heights,” Maher said. “His parents are Puerto Rican, came to this country from Puerto Rico. The book is by someone who’s half Puerto Rican. It got 96% Rotten Tomatoes. People loved it. Great reviews, for which he has apologized profusely. Why? Well, there is Latinx performers, one black lead, but no Afro-Latinx. The committee that makes note of everyone’s skin tone discovered this and then Lin-Manuel Miranda had to say, ‘I’m truly sorry, I’m learning from the feedback. I thank you for raising it. And I’m listening. I promise to do better in my future projects.’”
