Adam Carolla is calling out the Johnny-come-latelies among Bill Maher’s audience who have suddenly concluded that that they have a safe space to acknowledge that the coronavirus pandemic could be over.

“Watching the Bill Maher show. Now you pu–ies clap when Bill talks about getting back to normal. Shut the f— up and admit you were wrong,” the comedian and podcaster wrote on Twitter.

Maher, the HBO “Real Time” host, has increasingly criticized the left for its COVID-related paranoia and for following anything but actual science.

On recent broadcasts, for example, he insisted that it’s time to get back to ordinary living and that “liberals are always suggesting sacrifices they themselves don’t have to take part in.”

Sitting across from Maher on the set earlier this month, journalist Bari Weiss, who claimed she was “done” with COVID, decried a “pandemic of bureaucracy,” and similarly advocated a return to normalcy.

She even characterized some of the heavy-handed restrictions as constituting “a catastrophic moral crime.”

As someone who typically ridicules Republicans and loathes ex-President Donald Trump, Maher — who considers himself an old-school liberal — has the bandwidth to push back against the conventional COVID narrative.

His opinions on COVID (and certain other issues such as critical race theory) are particularly impactful to the extent that he reaches an audience that never consumes any conservative-related content.

Typically, Maher’s progressive, in-studio audience hesitates to react approvingly when he challenges the left. As Carolla alluded to, however, things seem to have changed.

Back in the day, Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel co-created the irreverent (to say the least) Comedy Central program called “The Man Show.”

While Carolla has moved to the right over the years as an independent producer, Kimmel has become a Democrat cheerleader as host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

While the doom-and-gloom cohort on social media favors the status quo, others concur with the Carolla assessment of the situation:
