Liberal podcast host Bill Maher said that he “would fight” against teaching woke sexuality in school if he was a parent to a small child.
The titular host of “Club Random with Bill Maher” and conservative guest Kid Rock, discussed how the left has gotten “crazier” in recent years and why he refused to join the Republican party.
“Things have changed so much on the left in the last five to seven years, that people say to me often, you know, you’re more conservative,” Maher remarked.
“I’m not more conservative, they’re just crazier on the far left, and I am a comedian,” he continued. “I am not going to pull any punches on who’s acting ridiculous. When they act ridiculous, I call them on it, and they do a lot.”
He did admit that there is “always a lot of truth on the other side that doesn’t get heard in our bubbles,” and pushing woke sexual education on young children in schools is one of the left wing agendas he doesn’t agree with.
“I would be a very bad parent right now,” Maher told Rock. “Because I would fight. We would be very aligned on this, a lot of this. I would be a very bad parent because they would be doing things in the school that I didn’t think was appropriate.”
“Not from either side or point of view, just like the subject itself,” he went on. “They’re five, can we just do blocks and the sky is blue before we get to drag queens? There’s levels of sophistication that are just…”
Rock chose to interrupt the host’s monologue to gleefully inform him, “Bill, welcome to the Republican Party.”
The “We The People” singer tried to shake Maher’s hand, but but he declined, and went on to question if Rock had ever seen his HBO show, “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
“I’ve been talking about this stuff for years. You don’t have to welcome me,” Maher countered. “And by the way I don’t want to be in the Republican Party at all.”
Rock joked that he could make a few calls on the liberal host’s behalf, to which Maher scoffed, “Oh, I know the invite is there, I don’t want it. Pick another kid for your team.”
Throughout the conversation, Rock and Maher, who have opposite politics, pointed out that the nation needs to stop being so divisive over their political ideals. The “Picture” singer noted that he had lost friends over his conservative views.
“They weren’t friends,” Maher pointed out, adding that people should not, “instinctively hate somebody because of who they are and what team they’re on.”
Despite his message of tolerance, the podcast host said that former President Donald Trump is “everything wrong with a human being stuffed into one man.”
“He’s the greatest friend you can have, and he’s the guy you want in the front line if you have to fight,” Rock shot back.
“We’re never going to agree and that’s okay,” Maher admitted. “If we have any message here on this PSA we’re making for America…”
Rock cut him off with a call of, “Let’s go Brandon!”
