Bill Maher panel goes off the rails when Trump surrogate won’t STFU: ‘I must f*cking stop you’
Donald Trump surrogate, Stephen Moore, would literally not shut up on Friday’s “Real Time” panel with Bill Maher. Early on Maher slammed his hands on the desk when Moore wouldn’t stop talking, “I must f*cking stop you!” Maher shouted at him. Maher was attempting to read statistics about the economy from the Census Bureau. At one point while Democratic commentator Angela Rye was attempting to talk about how Trump doesn’t want to raise the minimum wage when Moore began to talk over her as well. Rye continued and Moore put his hand on her shoulder, “Why are you touching me! Why are you touching me!” she shouted. “Don’t touch me! Don’t touch me!” Maher tried to hold Moore back away from Rye but Moore persisted. “I know you’re really excited, but let me be really clear,” Rye tried to say while Moore talked over her. “This is not the Monday night debate and I’m not Hillary Clinton. So, I’m just being very clear with you, I have something to say, and I need you to let me talk. Thank you.” The audience applauded as Rye began to speak again about the economy and Trump’s positions. “The point is very simple: When your candidate was asked whether he wanted to raise the minimum wage he initially said no, now he wants a slight increase. If you want to talk about wages—” and once again Moore began to talk over her. “You’re still not going to let me finish. You’re still not going to let me finish. Fantastic. This is going to be a great conversation.” “Steve, Steve, let her get her, let her finish,” Maher interjected. But Rye was done with the BS. “It’s fine, Peter, go ahead,” she said throwing up her hands and turning to the other panelist.” Maher insisted Steve quiet down and let Rye talk. “The problem is, your candidate has received his voter base,” she began before Moore once again tried to talk over her. “Really?” she asked with a WTF look on her face. “Anyway.” Maher once again pulled on Moore’s arm and shouted his name. It never worked.
