Bill Maher last night berated the Emory University students who freaked out over some pro-Donald Trump chalk writing at the Atlanta-based educational facility.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, pro-Donald Trump chalk messages so frightened and upset the college students that they claimed they were in pain and needed counseling because their safe space had been violated. The Donald Trump Emory University chalk drawings on sidewalks and stairs did not include any foul language, political rhetoric, or crude images. They simply bore the Republican presidential front runner’s name or urged the young adults, “Vote Trump,” and said “Trump 2016.”

The president of Emory University has even vowed to prosecute the Trump chalkers based on evidence that may be gathered from campus surveillance video.

A foe of Republicans and Donald Trump in particular, Bill Maher generally supports (including with his cash) Obama and virtually the entire Democrat/progressive agenda, but has also repeatedly criticized liberals on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher for being too beholden to political correctness.
As such, the Emory University incident was too much for even Bill Maher as he described the turmoil that occurred there to his TV panel on Friday night.
“Let’s talk about the liberal bubble… and I’m always criticizing what goes on on college campuses. There was a doozy this week at Emory University. Oh my gosh. You know what happened at Emory? Somebody wrote pro-Trump messages on the sidewalk in chalk. And, I swear to God, the kids went apesh*t… One student said, ‘I legitimately feared for my life. I thought we were having a KKK rally on campus.’ Here’s another one: ‘I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe, but this man — Trump — is being supported by students on campus.’ As is their right in a democracy. ‘And our administration shows by their silence they support it as well. I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.’ I so badly want to dropkick these kids into a place where there is actual pain and suffering. What happened in this country?”
Added Bill Maher about the traumatized students in the Emory University episode: “Democracy they don’t give a sh*t about; free speech doesn’t matter.”
During the same broadcast, while mocking some aspects of the Israeli lobby in America, Bill Maher weighed in on the terrorist attacks in Brussels.
“Europe has been real a**holes about Israel. I mean in general. The UN, as of 2015, the United Nations Human Rights Council had issued more official condemnations of Israel than the rest of the world’s nations combined. I wonder now that Europe has been attacked four times now in a little over a year, and they say ISIS has 400 fighters that they are ready to introduce back into Europe, and they’re trying to get a dirty bomb. Maybe Europe will have a little more sympathy for what Israel goes through.”
During a discussion with U.S. Senator Cory Booker on the same episode, Sanders fan Bill Maher warned Booker and other Democrats that “I think the Democrats risk losing this election if they cannot put together the words ‘Islamic extremism’ as opposed to ‘violent extremism.’ ”
In the past, Bill Maher has admitted to owning guns because of home invasions in his wealthy Hollywood enclave. This didn’t stop Maher from describing the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, as “bulls**t,” however.
Do you think that the pro-Trump Emory University chalkers were engaging in hate speech?
