Bernie Sanders to Appear on Real Time with Bill Maher this Week

By Jacob Klein on Oct 13, 2015 to Real Time with Bill Maher


This news may break Reddit. Senator Bernie Sanders will appear with Bill Maher on HBO’s air this Friday. Maher is known for his liberal views but has yet to endorse a candidate for the democratic nomination officially. Previously, Bill gave one million dollars to the Obama campaign.  Sanders has been on the show before. Here’s a clip if you missed that interview and just can’t wait.

Here’s the rundown for Friday night’s program:

REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER continues its 13th season FRIDAY, OCT. 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m. live ET/tape-delayed PT), with a replay at 11:00 p.m., exclusively on HBO. Allowing Maher to offer his unique perspective on contemporary issues, the show includes an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists, and interviews with guests. Vt. Sen. Bernie Sanders is the top-of-show interview guest. Academic Lawrence Lessig is the mid-show interview guest. The roundtable guests are political strategist John Feehery, journalist Johann Hari and editor Katrina vanden Heuvel.

Other HBO playdates: Oct. 18 (12:30 p.m.), 19 (3:35 a.m.), 20 (3:30 p.m.) and 21 (11:30 p.m.)

REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER is also available on HBO NOW and HBO GO.

Politico has hailed Maher as “a pugnacious debater and a healthy corrective to the claptrap of cable news,” while Variety noted, “There may not be a more eclectic guest list on all of television.”

    Love Real Time with Bill Maher, sure hope he finally discusses Bernie Sanders rather than ignoring him and just talking about Hillary Clinton as if she’s the inevitable candidate.
    She’s gonna have to suffer severe Berns before she manages to pass this stage let me tell you!

    • Jan Helwig

      I think Bill Maher is a Bernie Sanders supporter. There are just too many areas that they agree on.

  • Allan Barr

    I like Bill Maher, and I have a feeling he will endorse Bernie, feel the bern.

    • Jan Helwig

      I agree with you.

      • Allan Barr

        And he did, lol

  • Dave

    Maher is one of the biggest assholes in the world.

    • Steve

      And your not?

    • EGB Corp

      Asshole he might be, but he’s not always wrong.
      I’d rather have an honest asshole giving me the news and hosting political debates than a lying sweetheart

  • Walter Beals

    He won’t be able to give a million dollars to Bernie Sander’s campaign. $2,700 max.

    • EGB Corp

      Sure hope he gives that though ;D
