Comedian Bill Maher took a shot at President Joe Biden this week for effectively supporting the anti-Semitic protesters on college campuses with his latest student loan bailout.

Maher made the remarks Friday evening on his HBO show “Real Time” while discussing the recent demonstrations that have roiled numerous top universities.

“When I read about the college loans … ‘Biden administration’s student debt cancelation will cost a combined $870 billion to $1.4 trillion.’ That’s a lot of debt forgiveness,” Maher said. “Colleges constantly raise tuition, then the kids take out more loans, then the government comes by and pays those loans. Okay, so my tax dollars are supporting this Jew hating? I don’t think so.”

Maher discussed the issue with former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and Bloomberg Businessweek correspondent Joshua Green.

“Yeah, I mean, Trump is winning the youth vote by, I think, 11 points, that’s pretty astounding to me,” Maher said, referring to a recent CNN poll. “What do you make of that?”

“What I make of that a lot of it is if you turn on your TV today, you see young people protesting, angry, fighting with cops,” Green said. “What you don’t see is Donald Trump in a criminal trial. What you don’t see is, you know, one of his blue chip vice presidential candidates murdered dog a week ago and is two weeks into talking about that story. All of these stories that could potentially be damaging for Republicans to help Joe Biden have fallen by the wayside because all of the attention is on these protesters and on these fights, on their behavior, and on the fact that a lot of people don’t like what they see on the television.”


“Biden was elected to push aside the chaos and the havoc of the Trump years,” Greene continued. “I think everybody can agree on that. … You turn on your TV and see what’s going on on these campuses, it hasn’t happened. And that’s one big reason why he’s losing the vote, one big reason why he’s losing the youth vote.”

Conway fired back: “Yes, chaos and crisis in the Trump administration in a tweet, in a comment here and there, now it’s chaos and crisis everywhere we look. At the border, on our college campuses, by the way, in our halls of Congress, 31 Democrats voted against the resolution last October 18 to condemn Hezbollah and Hamas.”

“And the resolution clearly said, Bill, that they were concerned about institutions of higher education allowing sympathies for Hezbollah and Hamas, which our own government, Biden’s government, Trump’s government have declared terrorist groups, and they specifically said in there it was going to hurt, make uncomfortable, if not worse, Jewish students with all this anti-Semitism,” she continued. “That was October 18! 31 Democrats, including the most well-known young ones, the Squad that doesn’t do squat, for example, all voted against that resolution.”

Maher said that he completely agreed with Conway.
