    Trump did not say ingest Clorox or disinfectant. Look at the video. Trump got things going much faster than Biden would have. Give credit. Also politics is the only reason the virus was turned lose from China in the first place.

    Cuomo made loads of mistakes but drumpf told all Americans visiting Europe to come home. Right straight to New York airports. There’s a timeline between Cuomo and DeSantis and DeSantis fudged the numbers

    So Bill wants to say florida is doing it right compared to NY. So comparing two hot spots in the US with rising infections as the guide for the country. Two different weather patterns; you can go dance on the beach in FL with the sun and wind to keep you safe while you’re two inches from a hundred other people. And in NY it’s still winter there with a governor that didn’t have much empathy or care for the old. While Bill social distances and hides out in his house saying how everybody else should get out.

    I’m on board with most of what Bill Maher says but I reject most of this. He points out that half the country (right-wing/Repubs) are woefully misinformed, then criticises the other side for being overly panicked, but fails to connect the dots. The reason people were panicked was because there was one side that didn’t want to do ANYTHING. Telling people to go about their lives is one thing if we could trust most of the population to be responsible, but it was obvious that half the country would not be responsible. They wouldn’t socially distance, they wouldn’t wear masks, they were willing to deny any and all science in favor of believing stupid conspiracies about 5G and microchipping, and there were those obnoxious cunts who would cough or spit in people’s faces just to be obnoxious.

    The pandemic became bad because the govt didn’t want to stop its spread, claiming it was no worse than the flu (even though it turns out they knew it was worse). Already back then people were predicting two things: 1) the effects of those who did the right thing will not be noticed because it’d be lost among the effects of people NOT doing the right thing; and 2) the longer it draws on and the better things get (because they eventually have to), the more people won’t see the point of it and will question why they were doing (or ever did) anything. In that light a govt (and especially scientists) _has_ to preach an over-cautious message, because they have to make up for the shortfall caused by those who don’t want to help at all.

    We want to talk about how it’s bad, but we’re already forgetting how much worse it could’ve been if people just did nothing. And bringing up obesity is just deflection. You want to talk about obesity? Fine, but that’s a long-term thing. The short-term fight was Covid, and it would not have helped pointing this out at a time when many people were already obese and unlikely to immediately change that. It would have helped no one if a Covid-infected person ended up in hospital and all you could tell them was “Well you should’ve been less obese”. Bill likes to say it’s possible for people to hold two thoughts at once; I say yes, but it’s also possible to understand what is a priority.

    And yes, there were people warning about obesity _constantly_ . There are governmental reports about it federally and from every state from almost every year going back decades. People like Bill de Blasio tried to be proactive about it (at least on a micro level) and people made it a laughing stock. Once again, there are huge, systemic problems in America that will need fixing and will probably take years; Covid was a problem that arrived suddenly and needs dealing with *now* . The countries that did best from Covid were those who had hard lockdowns, limited movement, had strong messaging on social distancing, _and_ lower rates of obesity. America wants all the benefits of that but, until now, couldn’t deliver on any of it. That’s not scientists’ fault, or the left. If you want to see how bad messaging and an apathetic population works out, look at Brazil, the UK and a whole bunch of other countries.

    Wiping down surfaces was never the media lying to you. It was an overabundance of caution that turned out to be unnecessary after more research. It’s like wearing a helmet when you’re riding in a car – you look ridiculous and it’s probably unnecessary, but you don’t know it’s unnecessary until you verify that you’re not riding with Tiger Woods.

    Problem is this Bill. You probably won’t have to be admitted to the hospital if you get Covid, but even so if you get it you can also have lung damage amongst many other issues even if you have a mild case. Have seen this happen over and over again. So you shouldnt speak as if it’s safe and ok to get Covid.

    As some one said earlier in the comments the way you are handling your statistics is wrong. 78% of the people who got sick were obese but 74% of the US population is obese. Look at the infection rate in Nordic countries where the people are slimmer. They did worse than us. It’s a very dangerous flu that has very damaging effects. We have lost a lot of people already and many still have long term effects. No Bill do more research than just reading one article. Although I do agree more emphasis on weight loss is necessary.

    He always ends up shooting his mouth off with the truth that nearly all political sides would hate him for. Good. Truth telling is a very perilous task….right on! Side observation: it was very ironic that so many liberals claim to “follow” Dr. Fauci, and support being “well informed”, yet they ignore the fact that he says over and over “a strong immune system is one the the best ways to combat this virus”. HE SAYS THIS ALL THE TIME AND THROUGHOUT THE PANDEMIC, yet so many just ignore it and focus on everything else. Honestly the Left and Right are too busy trying to be or loving the position of being superior and one-upping the other side, that the average Person in America gets lost, exploited and dreadfully misinformed about everything, with every new generation—- but in particular, now about COVID.

    As far left as Bill Maher is, he does have the balls to occasionally recognize unapproved reality. Just talking about ‘the most pertinent factor, but you dare not speak it’s name’ as Maher put it with Covid could easily get you crucified by the woke mob. I remember when Yamiche Alcindor, the black PBS Washington correspondent, badgered Joe Biden in a press conference for a response to Covid disproportionately affecting blacks. That put Biden in a spot as he knew he couldn’t be frank, especially with her, that demographically blacks have the biggest obesity issues. And as far as what to do about it, an honest response like eating less Popeye’s would cause a national outrage. As Maher stated, ‘the last thing you want to do is say anything insensitive, we would literally rather die’.

    Don’t be a hypocrite…disinfecting fruit is widely done by wholesale sellers and zoos. It does not involve “drenching” them in an undetermined amount. You should know better…the dose is the poison. Clorox (in use for 100 years now) is responsible for our over bloated population. Republicans know “who” is dying and that the mortality will free up resources and boost the economy.

    Chance of transmission from a surface is 1 in 10 000 under a specific set of circumstances. If you touch any surface outside with covid, let it bake in the sun for a day then the chance is more like 1 in 10000 gazillion. If you have covid, sneeze on an orange, hand it to someone who touches it and they instantly rub their eyes the chance is probably nearing 1 in 1.

    I get what he’s saying overall but I’ve been hearing obesity linked as a risk factor for severe Covid since the start of the pandemic, from various sources throughout media including mainstream. It’s not some nugget of truth the “PC liberal media” refused to talk about. Also I don’t remember people being told they couldn’t and shouldn’t go outside. Congregating outside in tight crowds is one thing but being outside in general was never anything I feel like doctors and the media was shaming me or anyone about.

    It surprises me that this video is not taken down by YouTube for going against the mainstream media’s fear porn regarding COVID. Much smaller YouTube channels, some of which feature well informed scientists and doctors who have data to back up what they are saying, have had their videos taken down for making similar claims as Bill is making here. I guess because of their relatively small size, YouTube feels more emboldened to cancel these smaller channels. Much like a bully, YouTube knows that they can silence the little guy with impunity. They know if they did that to Bill, who is saying something quite factual, he has a large enough platform to fight back.

    Thank you Bill for saying something that needs to be said. Its unfortunate that it even needs to be said. If people would stop looking at the profit driven scary headlines designed to get ratings, and instead just looked at the raw numbers and did some simple division that they should have learned in ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, they would know how exaggerated the claims are regarding the severity of this virus, and how ineffective lockdowns are in the long run.

    Sorry Bill but I need to correct you on Texas. Stats went down on covid-19 because Greg Abbott and the Powers that be, changed the reporting rules. And they continue to lie about covid-19 not affecting the children. The have lied continuely about availability of covid-19 testing, rural Texas doesn’t have access to a damm thing. Texas has NOT released the majority of the money provided by the covid-19 relief bills that was supposed to keep people in their homes. What they did release is so restricted that you can’t qualify for help unless you owe back rent. Texas ISN’T honoring the National EVICTIONS BANN.
    Texas HAS HAD a MASSIVE spike in covid-19 EVERYTIME there is a HOLIDAY or EVENT of any size. The Collages are huge superspreaders even now. Texas DOESN’T release data on the children infected with covid-19 because that would prove they are lying, children are not immune!

But bill is right, the warm air and sunshine will cure it. Just like it did last summer right? What exactly are we supposed to do, Bill? Do fat people have less rights than skinny people? Apparently it’s ok to tell America to do whatever drugs you like but not to shovel whatever food you choose into your mouth. Why? Because Bill said so. Is the virus deadly or not? Should we be taking it seriously or not? What is it that you want me to do exactly? 2% of the population hospitalized is damn near 7 million people. What am I supposed to do?

    Let’s be straight, while the fearmongering can be reprehensible the rate at which the virus mutates the experts are giving projections that the life of a vaccine will be 9 month’s.

    After that the virus will mutate enough to render existing vaccines incapable… as demonstrated by the SA variant which makes half the vaccines less effective even now.

    And last I checked people are not wearing masks properly anyways.

    Greetings. Bill: You make some good points, but: I’ve heard plenty about the wonders of exercise and proper diet. I’ve heard plenty about the dangers of obesity. I’ve heard about obese people being at higher risk for severe covid, including death. I’ve heard all the other factors that increase your risk of severe covid illness. It’s on the websites that have info about it. It’s in the news. No, not front page, because most sane people already know obesity is bad and exercise and proper diet are good, which means it’s not really news. It’s in mail from places you sign up for. They ask you about them when you get your shots. Bill, what are you talking about? It’s all there for anyone who bothers to read a webpage or two. Do you want the doctors to visit everyone in their homes and shout it through a bullhorn? When de Santis of FL lifted the lockdown, it took 8 weeks for cases to come roaring back. We’ll see what happens in TX. After 8 weeks. Or maybe the vaccines are finally kicking in. There were none in the FL case. I do want to say that it’s great to see you call both conservatives and liberals when they do bullshit. That’s a great thing. BTW, I never bleached vegetables. I can’t believe anyone did that. Not as bad as up the you-know-what though! Never soaked my mail in disinfectant. Did wipe some doorknobs once or twice. And you have to admit the emphasis except at the very beginning has been on masks, washing your hands, get vaccinated, and the 6-feet rule — almost nothing about surfaces.

    I love Maher, generally, but he is on thin ice here. He is displaying a clear confirmation bias, indeed he is spinning the issue himself (just look at his discourse prep on the stats of hospitalization) and with his platform influencing the public, he should be much more circumspect in how he advocates people address pandemic behavior. Texas’ infections rates went down for a while after opening, but then the scientifically predicted happened, and now they are climbing again. It is inevitable and appropriate that a certain amount of “politics” influences “medical decisions” when society at large is confronting a pandemic. Everyone’s personal decision affects everyone else during a pandemic. California has gone through the ringer and is now in a better place, while in Brazil, India, even parts of Europe, cemeteries are standing room only. So no, it is not just a flu, and no, it is far from over. If prudent behavior lapses, the science says it will only get worse. Bill neglects to mention the complications of the new variants, CDC guidance on mask wearing, vaccinations, etc. this is a subject area Bill should just leave alone.

    ‘What changes to be hospitalized after getting covid’ is a rather unnuanced question. When you are under 60, in good health and weight, changes are closer to zero then to one percent.
    One to five percent is a american number, because your population is so unhealthy.

    Conspiracy theories are a weapon of choice by those who wish to put doubt in our Government and society. Most conspiracy theories are made up by those behind the Q-Anon movement. Q-Anon is a virus in our system corroding the efforts of that system to our society AND how we are viewed around the world. Most of what Q-Anon does is attack the foundation of America. Q-Anon creates fear, mistrust, and a hatred to those who are, at the moment, trying to preserve America and her Ideals.

    Q-Anon followers were first isolated from the truth by spreading the notion that the news was fake. This allowed people to believe ONLY what Q-Anon says to be true. Q-Anon is a con artist stringing people along with a false Narrative of reality and motivating them to hate the American Government on behalf of Russia.

    The conspiracy theories are similar to those anti-American propaganda slogans by the Soviet Union during the cold war.

    Man, I agree with Bill on so much until he goes off on Covid rants.

    Now, he goes back to shitting on overweight people. Look out of the mansion and realize that many people see Lil Debby as a treat because it’s less than $5 for a box of desserts for the family. Goes back to that income inequality that he talks about, but is technically part of the problem because he is also rich. Actually recognize that sure, he’s wealthy, old, and has qualified for the vaccine well before others, so even as a moderate when it comes to politics, stop complaining about medical business.

    You completely lost me on this Bill because here in Australia we went into lockdown with level 4 restrictions across the country, we also listened to the advice from our Scientists and medical experts and followed Covid safe practices, it worked, we’ve been back to normal since before Christmas and now we’re just easing the very last restrictions. A huge part of Australia having successfully stopped the spread of the virus is because as a society we decided to just get on with it and not endlessly whinge and moan about it, that’s the difference. It’s correct that Trumps complete incompetence in managing the pandemic resulted in so many unnecessary deaths as did obesity but it also comes back to the public. So many Americans simply refused to follow the rules, that willful ignorance had consequences, in your case the US having the highest death rates and infections in the world…facts!

    The problem that he doesn’t address is that if you’re already fat and out of shape, you have to be careful. And if you’re in shape, you still have to be careful, because you still go around people that are fat and out of shape. Or old. It takes a lot longer to get in shape than it does to get covid. Being in shape might reduce the severity of the disease, or even the chances of getting it. But 36% of the country is considered obese. You can’t have them all run some laps and get out in the sun and call it a day. Fat bastards are people too.

    Haven’t read through all of the comments here but DeSantis in FL has been one of, if not the biggest virus spreaders in the country with his policies. That and the fact he was giving 💉 to areas of the state based on contributions to his re-election pact. Do the full dive into Desantis before you pat him on the back. He has repeatedly turned down the Medicaid expansion for Floridians. Biden’s recovery act made the expansion less expensive but still a no from him .

    I can’t listen to Bill talk about American’s responsibility to eat healthy ANYMORE until he takes on the government subsidized Agribusiness. The fact it costs over 100 dollars a week for one person to eat healthy and probably 40 bucks to eat junk. Not a monetary problem Bill has I am guessing. He wants politics out of his health decisions but wants government promoting healthy eating. I don’t think he is telling it like it is, he’s grinding the same axe every week without getting into the history of how the American diet became so toxic. It takes a lot of time, money and education to eat healthy. Some don’t have that luxury. I am quite sure there a large amount of people who could eat heathier and don’t. But its a complex issue. What I always used to love about Bill was he got into the complexities and varying view points of of any given issue. He is starting to sound like a cheap political pundit with only narrow arguments that support your cause. #Crankyoldman

If I could figure it out, so could anybody else. The politicians deserve ample blame for the mess they created but people need to take personal responsibility for themselves when it comes to their health. Exercise, eat well (definitely don’t follow the food pyramid), get some sun but not too much, don’t be sedentary for long periods of time, and enjoy time with friends and family. Basically the diametric opposite of lockdown and hide, which is what so many sheeple did.

    So many are fearing a virus that has ~98% survivability… This isn’t something terrifying like Ebola (according to the WHO, its fatality rate is 50% on average but has varied from 25-90% in past outbreaks). I just checked the Worldometer ticker right now, Google it if you’re so inclined. For starters, the current world population is around 7,859,535,600+ (at the very moment I wrote this comment on 4.16.21, 6:33 PM my time). Cumulative cases globally are: 140,496,07. Of those, 3,011,404 have died and _119,318,229 have recovered._

    At the very bottom of that page, here are some important details: according to early estimates by China’s national health commission, about 80% of those who died were over the age of 60 and 75% of them had pre-existing health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

    Fatality rate (case fatality ratio or CFR) of the Wuhan Coronavirus has been estimated at _~2%,_ in the WHO press conference on health on 1/29/20. a prior estimate had put that number at 3%. Fatality rate can change as a virus can mutate according to epidemiologists. For comparison, the CFR for SARS was 10% and for MERS was 34% yet governments and corporations weren’t pushing for sinister Covid passports and fear mongering the public into lockdowns and vaccines for those deadlier infections.

    I don’t post links because YouTube removes my entire comment so again, Google is your friend. I then went to the Johns Hopkins website. If you’re interested look for the site hopkinsmedicine . org and look for the page titled “coronavirus disease 2019 vs. the flu” by Dr. Lisa Lockerd Maragakis. Relevant info as follows: the WHO estimates that 1 billion people get the flu every year and 290,000-650,000 people die of it. This figure corresponds to 785-1,781 deaths a day due to the seasonal flu.

    Congratulations on Bill Mahar seeing the light on Covid, however I don’t recall President Trump ever saying that people should ingest bleach or “Clorox”. He did say disinfectant and for those who know a thing or two my guess is that he was talking about chlorine dioxide. “Oh, but that’s bleach” No it isn’t, sit down and shut up! Chlorine dioxide is the disinfectant used to purify most of this nation’s municipal water supplies. It is available in tablet form and is used by hikers to disinfect water found on the trail. It is approved by the FDA to be used in meat and produce packing plants. It was used in Ecuador about 6 months ago to cure over 100 severe cases of Covid-19. Just recently a clinical study was completed using oral chlorine dioxide to cure Covid-19. The study was registered and accepted at clinicaltrials.gov on April 7, 2020 (NCT 04343742). Apparently Trump’s knowledge was greatly advanced to that of Dr. Fauci who never said a word to the American people about a cheap, easy to use and highly effective cure for Covid-19. Why is that? Is it because Covid-19 is Fauci’s baby? No one in this country is more responsible for the illegal gain-of-function research conducted at the Wuhan lab than Dr. Fauci. Of course you could say we are all responsible because it was U.S. taxpayer dollars which Fauci used to pay for this research, but it was done without your consent. I would hope that Bill Mahar gets his facts straight because I’m tired of listening to bullshit attacks on Trump. He is our rightful president and the criminal Biden should have been arrested long ago.

    The WHO has said that people with no symptoms do not spread Covid and they are not right wing lunatics. Also the IPCC said of climate models that as the climate is a chaotic system it cannot be modelled in any meaningful way. No one “denies” climate change but people do agree with the IPCC that the models cannot be trusted and that as we don’t know what the ideal average temperature is even if we could control it we wouldn’t know what temperature to set it at whether hotter than now or cooler than now. But one thing is for sure and certain civilisations in the past have invariably collapsed when the climate cooled and have grown stronger as the climate warmed. Cold kills humans and their food supplies not warming.

    He didn’t mention the fact that if exercising (being fit) and eating healthy are two of the best ways to maintain our health and not get a bad case of COVID, then lockdowns were the OPPOSITE of what we needed to insure public health. In California the beaches and the parks were even closed, for months!!

    Mostly good, especially pointing out the way the left wing media have helped statistically illiterate Democrats overestimate their risk. Points to be noted, though –
    1. It is reported (CDC 2020) that 69% of Americans are overweight or obese, so their making 78% of deaths does not demonstrate a much greater risk from overweight than is usual for severe illness.
    2. Long-term disabilities in under-50s resulting from Covid is a problem for even some people whose Covid did not require treatment – a much higher percentage than deaths.
    3. Beyond the recommended daily sun exposure / supplementation if needed, important for those stuck inside, per standard health advice, there is no strong evidence for covid protection by large doses of Vitamin D and excessive doses can be harmful. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/landia/article/PIIS2213-8587(21)00003-6/fulltext https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/taking-too-much-vitamin-d-can-cloud-its-benefits-and-create-health-risks
    4. Heathy people with great diets and trim, muscular bodies have died from Covid, and others have been disabled for months.
    5. The guidelines were set based on best available data from other infections, and so would be expected to change as more was learned. Next pandemic, remember that science is continually improving descriptions of reality – so expect that advice will change as medical science improves its description of the disease’s transmission and effects.
    (Also, surface cleaning would have reduced the rate of influenza and other illnesses, so that effort was not completely wasted. My state has not had much Covid – mostly in quarantine – and our hospitals have never had so few admissions for influenza and pneumonia.)

    If you want to blame someone, blame fast food companies fattening up all the Americans. Can’t feel sorry for these deaths if these people cared more about the calories they consume than their own health. Pandemic sure showed the outcome. Imagine if 78% of our population weren’t obese, think of all the lives that would be alive today and the extra lives if Cuomo didn’t sacrifice them in the nursing homes.

    Liberals are NOT the “party of science” when they support male bodies competing against female bodies in sport. Testosterone is not a sufficient measure to use to gauge any supposed justice in males’ bodies participating against female bodies. Male bodies are physiologically different from female bodies, regardless of testosterone suppression. This is a biological fact. Male advantages in sport over females with references:
    Upper body strength Lassek+Gaulin 2009,
    Taller bodies Alexander et al. 1979,
    Lower body fat advantage in vertical jump height, Abidin + Adam, 2013
    Heavier bodies Loomba-Albrecht+Styne 2009,
    Higher basal metabolic rates Garn and Clark 1953,
    Faster reaction times Der+Deary 2006
    Stronger hand grip, Khan, 2015
    Faster mental rotation+spatial visualization Voyer et al. 1995,
    More accurate throwing Jardine+Martin 1983,
    More accurate blocking of thrown objects Watson+Kimura 1989,
    More interest in the practice of combat skills Gibbons et al. 1997,
    Stronger bones Schoenau et al. 2001,
    Greater bone density specifically in the arms Wells 2007,
    Easier heat dissipation Burse 1979,
    More hemoglobin in the blood Waalen +Beutler 2001,
    Higher muscle-to-fat ratio Loomba-Albrecht + Styne 2009,
    Decreased Q angle in the femur means less pressure on knees and relieve the need to rotate, Carreiro, 2009,
    Larger hearts Tanner 1970,
    Higher systolic blood pressure Tanner 1970,
    Broader shoulders Brues 1959; Tanner 1989,
    Larger sweat capacity Burse 1979,
    Larger circulating blood volume Burse 1979,
    Greater resistance to dehydration Burse 1979,
    Tolerance for risk+dangerous activities Wilson et al. 2009,
    Faster sensory frame shifting Cadieux et al. 2010,
    Thicker skin Shuster et al. 1975,
    Larger lung capacity Gursoy 2010,
    Greater use of physical +homicidal aggression Daly+Wilson 1988.

    Just how big is this performance gap between male bodies and female bodies?

    Karsten Braasch, a male tennis player ranked 230th in the world, beat the Williams sisters in their prime in straight sets.

    The fastest female sprinter in the world is American runner Allyson Felix, a woman with more gold medals than Usain Bolt. Her lifetime best for the 400-meter run is 49.26 seconds. Based on 2018 data, nearly 300 high-school boys in the U.S. alone could beat it.

    TITLE IX is effectively erased by this policy, as we are seeing in the case of the two biological males who have won 17 state titles in CT in girls’ track.

    This trans-supportive policy does not survive scientific criticism. It is a fashionable fiction.

    RESPECT SCIENCE AND THE FACTS!

    How dare you privilege male “feelings” over women’s hard-won rights and safety!

    I just happened to watch this episode bc I wanted to watch the Sharon Osbourne interview. So I watched the entire show. I am not on the same side of the political spectrum as most of u. However, I find Bill has moments of clarity that I agree with him on. This one in particular. Btw, not all conservatives are a bunch of idiots as he claims. As a former liberal democrat, I can vouch for that. I just happened to hv realized that the democrat party no longer was the party that my parents were part of or the party of 25 years ago. And, no, I didn’t buy bleaching my food or drinking it. And I think Bill will be shocked there are more conservatives like Ron DeSantis, who can “ read” and look at facts. And?? Do believe in climate change!! Only realistically and not like that moron AOC or that hypocrite Kerry who flies around in his private jet polluting the air while telling me to spend $6 a gallon on gas and turn my thermostat up to 80 in the summer, while he can still enjoy all his luxuries. Nope. Bill can make his excuses all he wants saying how happy he is having people like him running our country. The same that run our media and states like NY and his state CA and all the Blue states that instill fear about Covid! A virus that has a 99.9% survival rate if you are under 60. 69-69? 99.8%! 70+? 94.5%! And yet we are told this is the Bubonic Plague! Sorry, it’s not. People were alive in the morning and dead by evening. If it were that bad we wud hv had mass graves. Masks don’t work! It’s a joke people wearing them outside. Fauci is a joke telling all of u to get vaccinated and then still wear a mask ! He wears two!! And still social distance. And sorry to break it to Bill, we did think we got Covid if one was asymptomatic!! I got Covid and thought I got it from my neighbor. She was really the only one I was hanging out with. And I survived Covid and just turned 70. Why? Bc I’m in pretty good health. Not obese. I knew two women, one 80 and one 85. Both survived. My friends mom, 95 survived. So what the media reported are lies. The truth is 6% really died of Covid. They put Covid down if u died of a heart attack and then saw u had Covid. And I’m not getting the vaccine. Once u hv had Covid, u are immune and I can’t give it to u. And Fauci and the rest of them hv no idea about these variants. They change their story everyday. Bill is right! Take Vitamin D!

    The truth is that the medical establishment has been forced to underplay the severity of the pandemic. Scared straight? You haven’t been paying much attention if you think that they are pushing too hard.
    As to the hospitalisation statistics, those are simply not reported much, and they are unimportant for the average American, who has to pay attention to the number of infections, not the number of hospitalisations. Each infection is a defeat, giving the virus millions of chances to mutate, whether it leads to a hospitalisation or not.

    The climate change denial is a good example: the experts have never been straight about the risks and the severity because no one wanted to hear it. And the still don’t want to hear it.

Same goes for the media…except for the walking back and correcting thing…not so much…including Bill.

    Doctors don’t amass a lavish lifestyle by treating well people. I can’t imagine they are impressed by the idea of “preventive medicine”. They well know that huge amounts of $$$ will be redirected if people are healthier. An empty waiting room must be many an MD’s nightmare. Btw, the much touted vaccines are not examples of preventive medicine. This society still favors Coca Cola over pure water so doctors need not worry about us getting too healthy to support them.

    Maher had some valid points but he left out an important one. There are valid preventatives and treatments that were known about since the early fall but were suppressed in the US by health officials and social media. For example vitamin d and zinc. Hydroxychloroquine, steroid, antibiotic multi drug treatment. And the synthetic antibody infusions. My family members that had Covid did either the multi drug treatment or the infusion and we all came thru just fine. My state actually forbid the multi drug approach and I had to get a prescription from my doctor who practices in another state.

    God this man is annoying… he is partly right tho. People on the left do act with an abundance of caution that is not necessarily fully warranted. But the dangers of being overly concerned are no where near comparable to the dangers of not being concerned enough. You are mad at democrats for OVER estimating how many people get hospitalized but its the people UNDER estimating Covid that are the reason so many people are hospitalized in the first place. The two are not the same. Once again its just Bill looking for hypocrisy on the side holding the more popular belief… because at the end of the day that’s all Bill is; a contrarian. Add to that the idiotic take that Florida did better than New York because they had a better governor or less restrictions. So your just going to ignore that Florida has sun all year long (which we know kills the virus), has a less dense population & New York was hit hardest during the early days of the pandemic when we knew the least on how to treat it. We killed a ton of people there just by using ventilators & other treatments that didn’t really help like we thought they did. Also, your going to ignore that Florida has MORE cases than New York & is one of only a few states that currently has RISING cases?! Nothing?! Literally NO ONE said it was the end of the world… liberals have said to take it serious and follow the temporary guidelines… that’s it. And conservatives couldn’t even do that. Talking about obesity has NOTHING…. NOTHINGGGGGGG… to do with liberals or conservatives. The reason it isn’t brought up as much is because its not PREVENTATIVE… its just a way to get better outcomes. So the best way to stop this is to stop people from getting it in the first place… not by trying to make every person in the country healthy enough to survive it. LONG TERM that should be the goal… but here & now DURING THE PANDEMIC we have to focus on treating it and preventing as many people from getting it as possible. Telling them to lose weight isn’t going to do that you colossal idiot. This take wasn’t even close to intelligent. IDK if he wrote it, but if not, fire the writers. Immediately.

    Most medical conditions are a result of lack of nutrition. Vitamins D, C and Quercitin help against getting viruses including Covid. Dr Joel Wallach and Peter Glidden are great sources of what nutrients or lack thereof correlate to particular diseases. Medical doctors are not trained in this area. So you to go outside the medical establishment to naturopaths.

    What about NOVEL coronavirus don’t you get? At first it wasn’t known how it spread, so caution was in order. Teachers aren’t kids, an d schools need them. (Kids go home to al=dults too.) Florida got infested well after New York so more was known on how to treat it. If everyone had followed the CDC guidelines, the shutdowns would have been avoided.

    He doesn’t want to be lied to, but he’s still spreading that LIE about Trump and bleach.

He never told anyone to take ANYTHING internally, and he certainly didn’t say the word “bleach”.

    sure, but these instances of correlation of obesity does not say it all. As an Italian/American living in northern Italy, we saw a generation of people in Bergamo die from Covid. It had nothing to do about their weight or whether they had enough vitamin D or a healthy immune system. We still don’t know the long term effects of Covid. Once it becomes widespread in a town the only way to make it stop had been to stay in quarantine; hopefully when we are all vaccinated there will be less deaths. For sure, we have learned a lot over the year – the experts have made mistakes too in protocols but I do have to say that the Chinese government should have been transparent about how dangerous it would be to the world economies, not just people. I do believe that the government of China bears a debt to the world for not clearly locking down international travel and issuing strong warnings much earlier in Covid’s timeframe. Hindsight 2020.

    The science institute of a German health insurance checked their data and concluded that a fourth of the population has high risk for a severe case of covid19. Statistics also show that the percentage among those confirmed positive covid19 fluctuates greatly depending on their age. For some age group the risk is reverse. You are extremely likely to end up in hospital. Those 5% risk clearly is open for interpretation. Is it 5% of the population or 5% of those tested positive and if so what is the demographic and age of those in that subset of people.

    5% of 31.8 M people infected is still nearly 1.6 million Americans hospitalized in a single year. Additionally that coupled with the 567k Americans who died in that same time, it’s a big deal for more reasons than just being afraid of catching the disease. Bill is showing graphs about what Democrats thought about how many people were hospitalized… who cares? Show me a media segment that stated 40% of people infected end up in the hospital. If you can’t do that, this segment is right wing propaganda. TX covid rates went down because nearly half the state is vaccinated and its a by-in-large a rural state. Politics are mixed in with our healthcare decisions already but I suppose doing a segment on which HCP paid which Senator to strip away more coverage from consumers isn’t as sexy as this.

    Trump never said to “inject a disinfectant” into the body. He spoke of ultraviolet light, which was at the time, a newer technology that has since been proven to be effective & asked if that can be directed inside the body. When he mentioned how a disinfectant knocks out covid inside of a minute, he said “is there a way we can do something LIKE that”. Of course, this will be taken out of context to poke fun someone who has different political views but isn’t it time to work together?

    Let’s NOT promote a unity where you must agree with the majority and abandon your own concerns in order to unite. We must consider how to respect opposing views and look for compromise from both sides and come to an understanding that both wants improvement. When 1 side has total control & refuses to work with the other, it tends to swing to the other side in future elections. I don’t think this is what we want. Is it?

A radical diet to loose weight in times of a pandemic doesn’t help one bit because diets are stress for the body and health benefits of diets take time. The virus will have caught up with you in the meantime.

    As for the sun being a factor. Did Maher pay attention to the first wave or major outbreaks in sunny Africa? Dropping the mandate in Texas coincided with vaccination and a population still scared of the virus. So is it cause and effect or simply a coincidence?

    There is actually a lot about this assessment that is suspect and misleading. There were plenty of doctors and scientists speaking rationally about the situation. HOWEVER, because there were/are so many unknowns, the data had to be gathered and interpreted. Yes, I think most people would have loved to keep the politicians out of the mix, but that’s not realistic when there has to be a state-wide and federal approach to dealing with the event.

    We did not do well with this. I think we do even more poorly with the next one. Maher’s generalizations and evaluations are simplistic.

    Misleading to say 78% have been overweight. How many were actually obese? There’s plenty of evidence that almost all the claimed harms come from having a BMI over 30. If you look at death rate curves you find there is a sweet spot around something like 22 or 23. Below and above that your overall mortality rate goes up. But here’s the key thing – having a BMI in the 25-30 region is not necessarily much, or even any, worse than 18-21. Stop talking about overweight and obese together. Split them up so we can see reality.

    So it’s quite amusing to have someone making a video about giving it to us straight where he uses one of the common lies – lumping overweight and obese together.

    You are right about numerous points in this video.
    Trump was not “incompetent” at all – he did very well. More than 43% of all Covid deaths died in nursing homes, especially where Democrat (!) governors intentionally sent infected patients into those homes in the hopes of increasing the Covid death rate so they could blame Trump for it!
    And please DROP THE CLIMATE HOAX PROPAGANDA!
    I studied physics, I’ve followed the entire issue since the 1970s, when the great panic was all about GLOBAL COOLING!
    There is no scientific evidence whatsoever about CO2 having an effect on the climate – there’s not even a correlation!
    The earth has seen extremely hot temperatures with low CO2 and ice ages with high CO2 levels. Over the last 150 years, the hottest temperatures occurred around 1895, 1911 and the 1930s. Current temperatures are not even close.
    100% of the climate alarmist “predictions” turned out to be wrong. Not marginally wrong, but radically wrong. Pacific Islands are not sinking into the ocean, their surfaces increased!
    Snow did not disappear, we had multiple years with record snowfall – worldwide (IPCC prediction was “no more snow at lower altitutes”).
    Polar ice is not melting – they used 1978 as reference year, which just happened to be a year with a very high Arctic ice level. Had they instead picked 1973 to 1975, there would be no noticeable drop. Arctic ice always varied. It was lower during the warming phase from 1920 to 1940.
    The number of wildfires did not increase – just for the US, they were about 5-6 times worse before 1950 than they are now!
    Globally, wildfires decreased substantially.
    Globally, the only measurable effect of the slight increase in CO2 has been a GREENING of the planet, espially in arid regions.

    It’s scary to say, but I agree with MOST of this monologue. I say most because he’s still wrong on Climate change and the obesity thing is another phony. I say that climate change, as being told to the public is a fraud. I have researched the issue at length, and yes, the climate is changing. It has in the past and will in the future. But the narrative being pout forward today is the same narrative that they used in the 1970s… only in reverse. Back then it was the same thing…Hydrocarbons are the boogie man, only then it was “the ozone layer is being depleted” and if we do not abolish cars tomorrow we will all die in the coming Ice age that will over run the planet by the year 2000.” Remember AL Gore and hoe the polar caps would be ice free by 2000?

    The data never changed, only the fear mongering.

    Then there is the obesity issue.

    I was recently told that “overweight people cause health care costs to rise.” But I know a lot of people who (according to their family doctors) who are “overweight”, and yet other than periodic checkups the majority of those in my little circle of 40-50 “overweight” people, only 2 or 3 actually go to a doctor for anything other than routine check ups. If you qualify for the TV show “My 600lb Life” then yes you have a problem, but there are far too many uniformed and mal-informed people running around condemning those who fall outside “Normal” weight parameters by 20-30 lbs when in fact that 20-30 lbs is “normal” for those individuals. I once attempted to get my weight down to what the doctors told me I should weigh, and I did it by responsible diet and exercise, no fad diets and no starvation, and I actually made it down to 175, ten pounds above what the doctors told me was “healthy” and I was miserable, I was tired all the time I was in pain and my wife told me I looked like a concentration camp escapee. The reality is that there is NO perfect body, there is only what is “right” for you the individual.

    Some obese people do have weight related issues, but to say that all or even a majority do, is just plain fantasy.

    On the other hand there are those like “John T.” who I served with in the Army, who was the epitome of health, good physical conditioning, and low body fat, chiseled like Schwarzenegger in his prime. His father and two brothers had the same genes and all looked similar in body make up… and all needed triple coronary bypass surgery before they turned 40.

    When I was in the military, 5’9″ and 190lbs, I was told that I needed to get down to 165lbs. But as I told the doctor I had not been 165lbs since Junior High. And yet that “fat” SGT that I was at the time routinely scored maximum test scores on my annual Army Physical Fitness tests and had a BMI of 10% far below the 22% I was allowed, but because some individuals who “knew better”, I was constantly harassed about my weight, not because I was “fat” but because to these people the numbers on the scale ruled out all other considerations.

    Is obesity a problem in the U.S., sure it is, but an even bigger problem is the portion of society who don’t have a clue on the issue, but deem themselves worthy to be judge and jury for the rest.

    The chances of being hospitalized depends on the age of the person. An average risk that covers the entire population is meaningless. Young people? Almost never. Past 60?

    Want some truth? Fat people are NOT responsible for the Covid pandemic. Most (9/10) of the people who died from Covid were VITAMIN D DEFICIENT.  

    –Two thirds of the deaths were from senior citizens in nursing homes, and they are severely deficient due to both a poor diet and almost never seeing sunlight.

    –Most older people have the same problem, but not as severe–and everyone tends to gain weight as they grow older and get fat.  

    –People with darker skin are protected from stronger sunlight but have more difficulty absorbing Vitamin D.  

    –Also younger fat people are more likely to be Vitamin D deficient for two reasons:  

    1. They are less likely to go out in the sun or go to the beach because they get harassed for daring to show themselves, especially if they are exercising. How’s that for irony?  

    2. They tend to need more Vitamin D, but get less. Starving yourself desperately trying to lose weight tends to make you malnourished, strangely enough

    The Solution: Go out in the sun more. Get tested for Vitamin D deficiency–25 (OH)D blood test.
    Take Vitamin D3, within reason.

    It is so obtuse to think that the urgency of the pandemic mixed with the knowledge that obese people are at higher risk of dying would whip people into shape. It requires a huge effort and tremendous amount of will power to lose a significant amount of weight, and obese people already live with the knowledge that they are significantly increasing their chances of health complications. They’ve been doing this since long before the pandemic. People actually think that this information would have resulted in massive, nation-wide weight loss and fitness amongst fat people? That’s extremely idealistic and naive.

Have you turned into a conspiracy theorist? How does anyone gain from state and local economies going to hell in a hand basket??? Quit politicizing this virus. I know entire family’s that got sick including premature babies, school kids, having opened schools only to have outbreaks so bad they had to close again!? It’s not red/blue. It’s life/death. It’s horrifying! The sun and wind are not a “cure” for any virus–same as shooting up with bleach doesn’t cure it! It’s good to get out and get sun! Don’t need to congregate at a beach to do that! Don’t need to go to an outdoor crowded sporting event or political rally to get your sun! You’ve gone a little too far on this one, Bill. Or maybe the cure is to smoke more weed?! Oh. But it affects pulmonary function! Yikes! You could be at greater risk of death like cigarette smokers are…And you live in CA where one of the hugest outbreaks of all was!! But of course you have money and can buy things and services to help keep you isolated, in the sun safely, take a dip in your home pool out back, while getting enough sun at your big hacienda while the commoners lose work and savings trying to make it through. Florida is no state to hold up as a good example! They had one of the highest outbreak rates of virus for quite a while and refused to mandate crowd control or mask wearing, as did many other states that didn’t have mask mandates, etc. Ky kept the hospitals open and managed fairly well, considering–it’s a red state with a blue governor who governs with common sense and believes in science!! And Florida was allowing the rich to get the vaccine before vulnerable populations — the poor, minorities, ppl with underlying conditions such as pulmonary problems…. Being overweight is not the main co-morbidity with this virus. Yes. Obesity causes many health issues. Agreed! Obesity is another epidemic to focus on once this virus is under control. Heaven forbid you get the virus! Then you’d have another viewpoint! Maybe an elderly loved one, who by the way are the most vulnerable population. More deaths in LTC Facilities than any other! Fact! Majority of deaths were ppl 65+, mainly in 70, 80, 90 age groups. Fact! Healthy ppl are dying of this too. Fact! Formerly healthy ppl are suffering long term issues, including neurological problems. I’ve watched it take lives, overrun hospitals, health centers, Medicaid Healthcare facilities for the poor, etc. It’s not only obese ppl and that’s not the most vulnerable population. Check your facts before ranting on your pet peeve topic-obesity. Come on! You’re better than this… sensationalizing and trivializing this pandemic. Put your mask on. Wash your hands and keep your distance! Or, go lick a flag pole! Your choice of course. And I’m a fan, Bill! You’re way off in this one. You go check the facts abt hospital conditions throughout the worst and it’s starting a 4th wave now. BTW, the 4th wave hit Europe 1st! Then it comes here! Look at FACTS abt LTC Facilities, congregate living facilities like Veterans Homes and prisons. Then come back and rant abt it again.

    News outlets overly reported negative news on a pandemic that killed 3,000,000 worldwide and 550,000 in the U.S. so far? A new mutation of a fatal virus that is very contagious.

    It’s easy to Monday armchair quarterback this NOW. Nobody knew if we’d even be able to produce a vaccine, let alone in less than 5 years, and certainly not in less than a year. Anyone speaking NOW as if they knew back then what would happen is just delusional. The brightest most educated people on Earth didn’t know but you talk radio listeners and internet surfers knew?

    Unfortunately, the public doesn’t like to hear the truth. Obesity kills not only with Covid but also with Diabetes, Hypertension, heart disease, etc. Being obese puts you in an inflammatory state. Knee pain and back pain also result of obesity. Patients get insulted by the truth and don’t want to hear that they are the reason they are in ill health. We are in an age where people really need to develop a thicker skin and listen to the truth. The truth isn’t coming from the CDC, WHO or the news. It’s very difficult for the average person to get to the truth these days. I’m an emergency physician and am blown away with lies that have been told and continue to be told.

    Maher indicts the media for sensationalism and click-seeking. He’s a member of that media. I like Maher, but I have to say…”Physician, heal thyself!”

    Many people will swallow Maher’s pronouncement because it comports with their worldview. They won’t submit Maher to the salubrious vetting that he advises for other information sources.

    Below is a vetting of just a few of his remarks.

    * * *

    * Maher says “…what are the chances that someone who gets COVID will need to be hospitalized? The answer is between one and 5%. 41% of Democrats thought it was over 50%, another 28% put the chances at 20 to 49.”

    However, those Democratic percentages are of course meaningless unless compared against the corresponding percentages of Republican responses. Maher doesn’t report the Republican percentages.

    In any event, the COVID-19 hospitalized are not the only COVID-19 infectees that merit our concern.

    * Maher says “…a stunning statistic was reported. 78% of those hospitalized, ventilated, or dead from COVID have been overweight. It is the key piece of the puzzle by far the most pertinent factor….”

    However, 78% is less stunning when you learn that close to 60% of all Americans are overweight. https://www.healthline.com/health/obesity-facts

    So being overweight might account for at most 18% of the deaths from CV (78% minus 60%). “Might,” because one or more of the co-morbidities that often overlap with being overweight might be the true culprits.

    For instance, age. “Statewide…Adult obesity rates were … highest among adults between ages 45 and 74.”

    Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health
    https://www.wihealthatlas.org/obesity/age

    Whether 18% qualifies being overweight as being “the key” factor is debatable.

    In any event, Maher’s point is not clear. Is he saying that 80% of the deceased are responsible for their own deaths? That we should fight COVID-19 by encouraging people to lose weight? That we should avoid, or even quarantine, overweight people? That we non-overweight people should rest easy?

    * Maher says, “And now of course, we find out that all that paranoia about surfaces was bullshit anyway….”

    However, Nature magazine’s webpage (January 29,2021) says “The coronavirus behind
    the pandemic can linger on doorknobs and other surfaces, but these aren’t a major source of infection.” [Emphasis added. “Not a major source” is not equivalent to “bullshit.”]

    “COVID-19 rarely spreads through surfaces. So why are we still deep cleaning?”
    https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00251-4

    * Maher states baldly that “…it’s looking increasingly like the beach is the best place to avoid [COVID-19].”

    However, the CDC’s not as sanguine.

    “Encourage social distancing—staff and beach visitors should stay at least 6 feet away (a few inches longer than a typical pool noodle, both in and out of the water) from people they don’t live with….”

    Listed after the above are fourteen additional CDC cautions for beaches and pools.

    “Guidance for Beaches During COVID-19​” (February 19, 2021)

    What’s wrong with believing that asymptomatic transmission isn’t a thing? It isn’t, and scientists whose paychecks don’t depend on political bullshit know this and aren’t afraid to say it. Asymptomatic transmission is rare enough that universal masking, for example, is stupid and insane.

    Sometimes Bill is just so fucking stupid, which hurts to see because I like him a lot and what he’s doing. He shows a Newsweek quote about infection rates going down in Texas… Firstly, isn’t Newsweek like a cousin to British tabloids? I mean, very sensationalist. Second, the infection rates might be going down – or stabilizing, actually – because fewer tests are being made. I applaude CNN for making the serious case about covid since the beginning. People need to be scared shitless or compelled. It disgusts me that my own nation has acted like Trump was in charge over here, and our news outlets go along – playing down the risks to the point where, at my workplace for example, no one seems to believe in or even know of asymptomatic spread of the disease. I watch Sanjay Gupta spill the latest on the virus and up to three weeks later our news media might mention it in passing. Certainly, if we must choose between two evils, alarmism is better than indifference when we’re talking about the biggest and deadliest pandemic since the Spanish flu?

    No one probably reads this anyway, but I want to add something about Bill’s views on military spending. Sure, I believe in the wickedness of the military-industrial complex, but there’s more to it. America is far from surrendering her role as the world’s foremost super power, and I doubt if even most democrats wants to surrender that status? In any case, American military history is so full of military disasters that you’d think the case would never have to be made again for keeping your forces numerous, advanced and prepared. Korea stands out especially. You know why they don’t teach you that much about it, why veterans of Korea are often very bitter (one family aquaintance was there and he emigrated to Canada after his service there)? Because, as could happen any day when you’re a superpower, you had a crisis, you had to respond, and what you had to send was badly trained and kept occupation forces from Japan going in first and getting slaughtered. You pulled people from rear echelon service to fill rifle companies. When the Chinese entered the war, you found they had better small arms than your own men, much of it originating from America, captured by CCF during the Chinese civil war. I’m probably not over-estimating when I guess that 10,000 fewer Americans would have died in that war if you had had the readiness and professionalism you’ve kept since the 60’s. You have such a professional, advanced and well-equipped army and airforce that it would be a crime to give it up, even an inch of it. I don’t mention the navy because they already have gone down the slippery slope, which the two recent collisions are a testament to. WW2 is another obvious example. You talked tough and bruised the Japs with embargoes, but you weren’t ready for the reply, hence the disasters of Pearl Harbor and Bataan. Then again, a lot of Americans would probably welcome the Russians as the new world police. I think the Aussies got the right idea – re-arm to the point we can chart our own course without depending on the whimsical, proverbial Giant that is America. Ofc, that will never happen in my country, unprepardness and dependence has been our motto since 1814.

    78% hospitalized are overweight or obese, but guess what? 73% of American adults are overweight or obese and if you only include Americans who are middle aged and up that percentage is much higher. So that statistic he is quoting is meaningless. He’s trying to imply that only fat people get hospitalized when that is untrue. There are athletes and fit people who have had long term health issues because of Covid. I used to like Bill Maher, but he injects is own bias far too often.

    Many counties did overwhelm their hospitals with Covid patients. You can’t blame the media for putting that on the news and you can’t blame the health officials to come up to a microphone and plead with people to please take Covid more seriously. They were concerned, exhausted, and did have to let some people get sicker and die. They had a right to express their grief. If that gave the wrong impression about statistics, who cares? By and large, people still remained plenty relaxed about this pandemic. That’s how we got to over half a million dead in the US.

    Some nice cherry picking / lack of context of stats here.

    “78% of people hospitalized for Covid were overweight/obese” Ok. That sounds really bad. Except that 73.6% of American adults over 20 are overweight/obese (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/obesity-overweight.htm). Want to bet that number gets higher as people get older?

    Its also a huge problem that ~40% of democrats think there’s a 50/50 chance that a Covid patient gets hospitalized. No mention of the same infographic showing that ~30% of republicans and 35% of independents think the same thing.

    So yes… Let’s let the facts do the talking. And being on team blue or team red doesn’t mean that you magically get a pass. But its pretty darned ironic that a piece lambasting democrats for being fast and loose with facts is being this fast and loose with facts.

    One of the biggest driving factors of why there is a disproportionate amount of black and Latino people who contract covered or have worse outcomes is because of the much higher rate of vitamin d deficiency that those population groups experience in the US. Hands down the best thing that could have been done was to encourage people to be out in the sunshine exercising and getting fresh air. Plus when you exercise you’re naturally inclined to space out anyways, so going for a run/walk, playing volleyball, swimming or riding a bike all are safe low cost or free activities that would reduce stress and the level of stir crazy some are experiencing, improve fitness, but also directly decreases the chances of catching covid and improves your outcomes if you do have it. Vitamin D is important to supplement, most people in the US and other northern countries are deficient, and the more melanin the more likely you are to be low! Take supplements, eat dairy if you are able, and get some sun!

    A big thank you to Bill for pointing out that believe it or not people on the right can be just as well educated, well-read and we’ll informed or moreso than people on the left. I think it’s a shame that there is this blind narcissism that all the people who vote right are uneducated or idiots. you will find idiots on both sides and intelligent people on both sides, and the ideologies that feed into these ridiculous stereotypes are doing so much incredible harm to the entire planet and especially the US. I think this outlandish stereotype stems from the dramatically increased level of hard left partisanship in the humanities and how it leaked into other facets of higher education, it used to be far more balanced and previous decades. Nothing good will come of it, alienating half your population to the entire concept of advanced education will have devastating consequences. And before people jump down my throat no I am not a Republican nor am I a Democrat both parties have their heads firmly lodged up their back sides and neither represents what I believe would be best for the country and its people.

    The large scale campaign for adopting healthier lifestyles doesn’t happen because every time someone like Michelle Obama dare tell us that exercise is a good thing all these nut-job right wing talk show hosts do long running segments about how “the government is telling you what to eat now, bla bla bla.” And yea they do it just to be contrarians, but it works. I’m really sick of Bill Maher’s rap on this, as if liberals are to P.C to point out the American obesity problem. Liberals have launched more campaigns for Kale than they have for single payer healthcare. And when the left does rally for universal healthcare, a big selling point is “preventative care.” Or as as it’s called on the right, “tyranny”. Remember, “I’m young, why do I need healthcare?” Maher has to get a clue. There’s tons of legitimate shit to criticize the left about.

    So, a third of Republicans believe COVID can’t be spread by asymptomatic people … which means that TWO thirds don’t believe that. On the other hand, SEVENTY PERCENT of Democrats are, as Bill put it, “wildly off” when it comes to the severity of COVID re: the hospitalization rate.

    So, 1/3 of Republicans are wrong about a key COVID fact … but SEVEN out of TEN DEMOCRATS are wrong about another key COVID fact.

    Is my math off, or is 70% much MORE than 1/3?

    Not having children yourself, I suppose you can be excused for forgetting that children do not attend school without teachers and other staff – adults of all ages and health conditions.

    I so happy to see Bill taking this stand. I haven’t worn a mask since June 2020 while all my leftist friends and family buy into the fear. And the reason we don’t see a more democratic and engaging debate over the lock-downs and force mask adherence is because of the mass censorship on social media. This has prevented any build up of any grass roots resistance towards the authoritarian measures pushed in us by our government.
    I also don’t think the hysteria around Covid in the U.S. is unique. Britain, Denmark, Ireland Australia etc have stricter behavior laws and every bit, if not more, propaganda pushing fear. You can find video’s from these other countries of people actually getting arrested just for posting anti-lock down/mask opinions. There is nothing natural or healthy about the amount of fear being pushed on us while we ignore our obesity and dietary problems.

And he starts talking about politics? Texas cases are down by a lot because they stopped testing by a lot. Their positivity rate is still one of the worst in the country. Then end of this week is better. They aren’t as bad as when they listed the mask mandate around March 2nd but no states really are. So its not like some major accomplishment. I’m with him on obesity however. I feel like are food supply should be more regulated. Less salt and sugar. A country full of diabetes and heart disease being a major killer, it would help if chips could reduce salt by at least half.

    Unfortunately, exercise isn’t near as effective at reducing obesity as simply cutting excess refined carbs in ones diet which has been advocated since a150 or so years ago. But, that idea is also considered heresy by many in the medical profession, so it’s ignored.

    I am a 35 y/o Republican and have grown up on Bill Maher through my Democrat Mother and am a big fan of his. In these days of tribalism we need to get it straight with party ideology. Maher is like most Democrats in that he is a Liberal and not a Leftist. Liberals are good hearted, hard working, emotionally sensible people. Leftists are radical, illogical, and emotionally childish like the fringed Right. I think as American Citizens, not politicians, we Conservatives and Liberals can, and are, come together on a lot of issues.

That is just what countries who were successful in managing the virus did. Australia, New Zeeland, Taiwan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong… But no we had an infant in the White House who didn’t want to manage this because it was hard and unpopular and would interfere with his re-election propaganda rallies.

Yes, obesity is a symptom of a monster metabolic disorder, not a sinful nature but a medical condition …almost always traceable to insulin resistance and demanding reduction in carb intake etc.

India was a country that seemed to be doing just fine while living life normally while ignoring all the warnings of a possible second wave. India is not doing to well, at the time of this posting. I was in my preteen years when the Sabin Oral Vaccine was given at a neighborhood elementry school. There were long lines of families waiting to receive the first of three doses. No one viewed it as political mandate. This was to combat the spread of polio. Now one irresponsible person of rank told an outright lie about the Caronavirus and falsely lambasted medical science and all of sudden a deadly infection becomes a political issue. The COVID pandemic is a national emergency. People have died from it and other are suffering lingering side effects. How much intelligence is required for people to understand that this not about life or liberty, but life and death? There is a difference.

    as a Floridian, I have to wonder what the fuck Bill is talking about
    yes, DeSantis gave priority to seniors; but he also gave preferential treatment to wealthier senior communities that happened to be home to major Republican donors
    it was good that he allowed Publix to become a major vaccination center — but why didn’t he give that same treatment to Wal-Mart or Winn-Dixie? Is it because Publix donated to him more than the other major super markets?
    also, the beach alone is not the problem — it’s when thousands of drunken assholes are crammed shoulder-to-shoulder that it becomes a problem
    DeSantis signed executive orders making it ILLEGAL for any county or city government to enforce any health & safety mandates; he sent a SWAT team to raid the home of a woman (and terrify her children) when her only “crime” was allegedly texting lawmakers that DeSantis was suppressing the true numbers of COVID deaths
    it’s easy to say DeSantis is “pro-science” when his predecessor was so anti-science that he could’ve been a villain on Captain Planet

You should bang on these people that keep on wearing their masks weeks after vaccines. If they took them off it would kind of give people more confidence that this ruse is over, and it is a ruse if you believe that statistics have any type of validity. The official site in reporting adverse reactions is VAERS, and the side effect you need to look at are the 358 deaths in last several weeks, and companies have the audacity to make these vaccines mandatory. Hey, did Bill get his vaccines yesterday? Oh No, He Died from it.

    Better but Bill is still batshit crazy when he gets on his climate change rants. On my first date with my wife, one of the stops was a Neolithic site called Banpo Village, just outside of Xi’an, Shaanxi. It is fascinating due to the complexity of pottery and artifacts that came from humans living 6,000 years ago. But what caught my attention was a talk given by one of the guides. She, (I am guessing that it was she but can’t quite remember) noted that part of the diet included bamboo rat and water deer because that part of the Yellow River basin used to be a lot warmer and wetter than today. Neither species can be found anywhere near that location. That struck me as important because activists are telling the Chinese to cut on CO2 emissions to protect themselves against warmer temperatures even though the Chinese data shows that temperatures today are much cooler than they used to be for most of their history. Xi’an’s temperature during the Neolithic period that the settlement was occupied used to be closer to what Chengdu’s is today. That made life much easier, not harder.

    Bill goes after the ROP for denial about climate change because he accepts claims that have no support. He needs to pick up a book that shows the evidence and have a close look. And being ‘scientific he might want to ask why the advocates of AGW keep referring to ‘expert judgment’ as justification for their claims rather than empirical evidence. Don’t bother though. Visit Banpo, or pick up the classic book by H.H. Lamb where the temperature data is given and have a look. By the way, Lamb, Ravelle, and others were worried about the next ice age, not temperatures that would barely reach the Holocene Climate Optimum levels.

Because if we don’t, the communist governments of both the U.S. and Canada will use the businesses to impose this fascist garbage of mandatory fake untested vaccines imposed on everyone. Hit them hard in their money belt, and see them change their tune, but we got to hit hard. So stock up on what you need before we all begin. And share this message in your own words with as much people as you can.

    Awkward because you could tell the audience didn’t know if they were supposed to clap or laugh or storm off. It was almost all true, what he said, too. But Trump NEVER said to drink disinfectant. Common trope taken out of context.

    I am a firm believer in science and that pandemics can (and have) decimate a population. Initially C19 was a unknown threat, we quarantined, we masked up, we put sick people on ventilators (that may have done more harm then good).

    There was then an election that needed to be won and C19 became heavily politicized, weaponized by both sides.

    After a year of collecting data, we now know that C19 is almost only fatal for the elderly, the obese, and those with other underlying issues. Those populations are now almost all vaccinated and I am happy for them.

    We have all been exposed to the virus, and many in the non-vulnerable population have naturally built antibodies to fight off C19 or have chosen to take the vaccine themselves. For me, that is plenty of protection to never think about this ever again. I have little faith we will survive a pandemic that conveniently doesn’t kill children or the healthy in the future if we handle it like this.

    *To all the commenters who are saying that Trump never told people to drink / ingest bleach, you’re right… Trump suggested injecting disinfectant into the body, which is completely different: “And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside…”* 🤢👌

    A lot of people died because TPTSB censored and withheld GREAT EFFECTIVE early treatments, HCQ plus zinc; budesonideworks.com; ivermectin; OTC quercitin with zinc & vitamin C Thry lie and say “there’s no early treatment“ in order to obtain the EUAs, since they could not obtain an EUA if those treatments were widely known about… vitamin D deficiency is a huge piece of this.

    The chances of being hospitalized when getting Covid would have been much lower if proper treatment was available (protocols such as Hydroxychloroquine + Zinc + Azithromycin). But, Pharma doesn’t get their billions of dollars in ’emergency funding’ for vaccines unless these are discredited. So, they were. Plus they don’t make any money out of these products in the first place. Instead governments financially incentivised procedures that killed people and told all doctors to count deaths as Covid deaths. This whole thing was fraud from the get go, especially as the virus was out and about long before China commenced their mandatory adult vaccination law on 01Dec19. It’s being used as an excuse to cull humanity.

    Biting commentary on how liberal media and liberal government officials do not “follow the science” as they boast, but I’m disappointed that even as you admit that Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R) actually followed the science and has a better record on his handling of the Covid19 crisis than liberals like NY governor Andrew Cuomo (D) , you felt the need to twist the knife a bit with a snide remark about “I’ve read that Ron DeSantis reads” (ha-ha) … the joke based on the premise that it’s just common knowledge that conservatives are not well-educated and don’t read … and yet you know that’s not true. Ron DeSantis , graduated with a B.A. magna cum laude in history from Yale University. Then he gaduated with a J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School. Ron DeSantis reads a lot more (and on substantive topics) than most of the liberal press and Twitter mob who constantly deride him. (*Magna cum laude is an academic honor used by universities to signify that a person’s academic degree was earned with great distinction. The Latin phrase means “with great praise.” It means you graduated near the top of your class. Unlike certain politicians who lied about their academic standing and how many degrees they earned. *cough* JoeBiden *cough* https://youtu.be/9p5CXMVGMxU )

    Good on you for calling out the lying panic porn peddlers in the media, but shame on you for repeating the LIE that Trump suggested people might drink bleach to treat Covid19. The truth is that Trump was aware of a new experimental technology for injecting UV light into the trachea, which had recently been in the news, and Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci were not aware of it. Then CNN , MSNBC, and the rest intentionally perpetrated a lie that Trump suggested “drinking bleach.” (this is the same liberal media who perpetrated the lies about Covid19 that you’re calling out . Does that give you a clue?)

    Is it me or does anybody think Bill’s show would be better off without the audience and the producers would allow him to let rip with his guests and their own thoughts, both for and against. That way people can think for themselves what they agree with.

    Hey Bill, 69% of Americans are overweight, so how does being overweight become they key factor in Covid hospitalization and mortality? Comorbidities and compromised immune systems combined with delayed access to medical intervention and/or ineffectual medical intervention are the key factors in Covid-19 hospitalization and death. 69% vs 79% does not demonstrate a causal factor.

    According to this article, which seems to contain the Gallup survey quoted, lack of education (or numeracy) also has a large effect on the misattribution on hospitalization.

    Rather than attack people who are overweight, I wish Bill would focus on Religious zealots (ala India) where mass crowds go to a major religious pilgrimage, and a few weeks later suffer the consequences. Can’t cremate the bodies fast enough. Hospitals overwhelmed. And now, we, the USA are supposed to come in a rescue them because they didn’t listen to the instructions and do all the nasty quarantine things we did. People now say: we are all interconnected…which is very true. One country, with religious mobs, decide their immunity stems directly from God – and we are supposed to be afraid of them super spreading.

    If you don’t want politics mixed with your medical decisions, then you certainly should NOT want religion mixed with the health information either.

    Anyone who holds the virus in their body for an extended length of time is a host (Doesn’t matter if you are fat, young, old, white, black or brown). And from that host CAN come a virus that is much stronger. Viruses are probably smarter than people when it comes to altering themselves for survival. The problem is that Americans in general have lost their ability to reason within a context (which is difficult in 26 characters or less). All you healthy non-fat people are conceivably just helping that virus make a stronger version of itself.

    There are some politicians who are influenced by science. But a lot more who are prone to pander to the religious zealots and those who believe Covid-19 is really nothing but a fake news story. Bill – you hate religion. Why not go after those zealots? At least a lot of the fat folks are scared enough they are getting vaccines. The others? Well it’s against their religion. (or some other stupid excuse).
