Bill Maher took aim on Friday at liberals who “couldn’t bring themselves to vote” for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

The “Real Time” host asked the “liberal purists” who had said Clinton was “the lesser of two evils” how they were feeling now that President Donald Trump had celebrated his first 100 days in office last Saturday.

“This isn’t about reliving the last election or my great love for Clinton, which never was, but this is about winning the next election,” Maher said. “And that begins with learning the difference between an imperfect friend and a deadly enemy.”

After noting how various liberal politicians, activists and commentators had said that either a Trump or Clinton administration would be a disaster, Maher asked whether conservatives would now control the Supreme Court if the “just-as-evil-Hillary” had won.

“Just wait until the 5 to 4 decisions start rolling in, gutting unions, making it harder for minorities to vote, siding with polluters, overturning abortion rights,” he said. “Then maybe you’ll join me in saying to the liberal purists, go fuck yourselves with a locally grown organic cucumber.”
