HBO host Bill Maher debated Bernie Sanders, socialism and black voters with Cornel West, Kellyanne Conway and Josh Barro in the online-only Overtime portion of his show ‘Real Time.’
“Maybe people are just not that in love with socialism,” Maher said about Sanders’ losing campaign in 2020.
“It’s not socialism,” West objected.
“Bernie is a socialist,” Maher said.
“He’s a New Deal liberal,” West responded.
“He calls himself a socialist,” Maher retorted.
“A lot of people like to call themselves things,” West said.
“Why would you want to call yourself a term that doesn’t have a positive connotation?” Maher responded.
“We have polling on this,” Maher said. “The white liberal is to the left of the average Democratic black voter. On social issues and economic issues. Most black voters are moderate, not liberal. More white Democrats are liberal.”
