Bill Maher to Donald Trump: Redistribute wealth or risk getting kidnapped

After telling a story about a man who called 911 to get his power turned back on, Bill Maher noted on HBO Real Time on Friday, that when people are squeezed economically “they go all Django unchained.” He then suggested wealth redistribution was the way to go.

“If you’re rich you should be begging the government to redistribute your wealth, because you know what happens in countries where there’s a huge disparity between the rich and the poor?” Maher asked. “The rich get kidnapped. It happens 72 times a day in Mexico. Getting snatched out of your car is so common in South Africa that they actually make cars that do this.”

He actually showed a clip of a car that does it.

“Do you really think your trophy wife is going to empty out the Swiss bank account to save your sorry ass?” Maher asked. “I’m talking to you, Donald Trump. Think about it.”

This is the same Bill Maher that almost said his “fair share” was too much back in March.

Pointing at Virginia’s former Republican Congressman Tom Davis, Maher said, “You know what? Rich people – I’m sure you’d agree with this – actually do pay the freight in this country.”

“I just saw these statistics,” he continued, “I mean, something like 70 percent. And here in California, I just want to say liberals – you could actually lose me. It’s outrageous what we’re paying – over 50 percent. I’m willing to pay my share, but yeah, it’s ridiculous.”

Celebrity Net Worth estimates Maher’s worth at $23 million. Maybe Maher should be the one begging for redistribution.

    If the GOP is serious about recapturing the White House than they need to let go of candidates that simply do not have a chance. Sarah Palin is labeled as "unintelligent and not ready", and the Dem's can/will make that point stick. Jeb Bush is bland and I think the Bush name has had their chance. Chris Christie's persona will not resonate nationwide. Rick Santorum? Pah-leese! Marco Rubio is not at all ready. Cruz/Paul will likely stall. But a Paul/Cruz ticket will likely cruise right into the WH. Oh did I forget to mention Bobby Jindal….

    this is just more ridiculas Maher, Liberal/Progressive BS even he has been caught admitting the wealthy pay the majority of the freight in the USA, even he admits he pays more than 50% in CA. and yes he admits the rich pay 70% of the taxes paid into run the boat…its been stated that 47% pay little or nothing in the way of Federal income taxes and the wealthy pay at least 53% or probably more? this guy is an arse bag and he should be held accountable for what he says? iftrump happens to get kidnapped I say go to Mahers door first off and see if he had anything to do with it, or urging others to do it, possibly as an accessory to a Felony after the fact? he needs to be put in jail along with OJ and the other garbage?

    OBUMMER AND THE GOVERNMENT ARE THE ONES SQUEEZING THE AMERICANS WITH ALL THE ADDED TAXES. THEY ARE ALSO SQUEEZING BUSINESSES OUT OF BUSINESS WITH ALL THEIR EPA REGULATIONS AND TAXES BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE SO THERE AREN'T MANY JOBS FOR THE PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. THE RICH ARE PAYING MORE THAN EVER IN TAXES. THIS DAMN GOVERNMENT WANTS TO MAKE SURE WE ARE ALL DEPENDENT ON THEM AND ONCE WE ARE THEY WILL START TAKING AWAY WHAT THEY ARE GIVING TO THE SO CALLED MIDDLE CLASS AND LOW INCOME FAMILIES.

    Let's see if I can offer some suggestions to Mr. Maher and his Special Friend, Mr. Moore.

    1. Require true arbitrary drug tests for Food Stamp recipients.

    Mr. Moore- Get a job.

    2. Reduce salaries of EPA and OSHA agents. Laterally move them to

    stop the abuse of the Social Security and Disability funds by

    prosecuting those whom work side jobs under the table while

    collecting S.S. and Disability checks.

    Mr. Moore- Shut your pie hole and get a job.

    3. Bring our Manufacturing home from China, Mexico, Malasia, etc.

    Mr. Moore- if this happens maybe you can get a job.

    4. Leave alone our inalienable rights as citizens.

    Mr. Moore- Since you refuse to get a job from #3 above, Shut up.

    5. Force all illegal aliens, regardless of what country they are from to

    pay taxes as we the productive do and if they are from a country

    at odds with American Freedoms and Policy, whether it be drugs

    or Terrorism. Send 'em back with an implant in the brain so they

    can be tracked.

    Mr. Moore- It may be time for a mental institution. Shut up.

    6. Remove from office all Washington Politicians and replace them

    with real people who do care about America and will work for the

    good of the people they represent and not themselves.

    Mr. Moore- "Just a little pin prick and there will be no more…"

    7. Mr. Maher, it seems your "Special Friend", Mr. Moore is now ok.

    We have another space for you. Shut up.
