Invoice Maher is dropping out on American democracy — or so it appears — and he makes a case.
The ‘Actual Time’ host served up a scary parallel between the united statesof A and Brazil, each of which had insurrections over their respective presidential elections — the U.S. on January 6, 2021, and Brazil on January 8, 2023.
In each instances, as Invoice says, the presidents who disputed the election have been thrice-married, right-wing populists. However that is the place the comparability ends.
In Brazil’s case, nearly everybody rose up in opposition to the rioters and the president, who’s been banished from the nation and is now residing in Florida. Within the case of America, the previous president now residing in Florida would be the Republican nominee by an insanely giant margin.
Invoice then dove into how we actually have by no means been actually democratic … California has the identical illustration within the Senate — which, by the way in which, can convict a president for misdeeds — as sparsely populated Wyoming. We’ve this fakakta electoral faculty which has no correlation to the favored vote.
Then Invoice will get much more actual with the confession, perhaps we misplaced our style for democracy as a result of “we’re only a s**ttier folks than we was.”
And eventually, Invoice points a warning to Democrats on why Trump is so common, and it has one thing to do with Chardonnay.
