After what many on the right viewed as a liberal hit on Fox News host Tucker Carlson, pro-Trump trolls are gunning for comedian Bill Maher over old jokes in an apparent bid to strike back at the left and a perceived double standard.
Problem is, some on the left dont seem to like Maher anyway and are totally cool with him being fired.
It all started over the weekend when audio and transcripts of Carlson were resurfaced in an article published by Media Matters for America highlighting grievous comments made on the radio between 2006 and 2011when Carlson would call into a radio program hosted by shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge.
Some comments presented were sexist against women while in others dealt with child sexual abuse and defended statutory rape.
As Carlson, however, refused to apologize, his supporters, who viewed the entire article as a hit job, began to draw equivalences with past comments and jokes about pedophilia made by liberal host Maher.
