Bill Maher has a confession — something he’s kept under wraps for years — he flies private, and if anyone expresses outrage they can suck it, because they’d do it too if they could.
The “Real Time” host bore down on climate change and how ridiculous the “everyone pitch in” concept has become. As Bill says, we gotta do something, but shopping with a laundry bag isn’t gonna do the trick.
Bill says, “Humans are not good people,” and when asked to pitch in to save the environment, their response is, “What’s in it for me?”
We are now talking about banning gas stoves, yet people are more than happy to pollute the earth with Amazon deliveries, because it’s so damn convenient. Cell phones use more energy than refrigerators, but getting rid of your cellphone … hahahahaha.
Now the confession … Bill Maher flies private. There it is — he’s a polluter/offender, but at least he’s honest about it.
He regales us with image after image of socially conscious people — some huge environmental activists — who are more than happy to jump on a private jet — because they can. Just a few — Oprah, George Clooney, Leo DiCaprio, Paul McCartney, Harry and Meghan, Sting, Beyonce and Jay-Z, and on and on.
Bill believes anyone who could afford to fly private would absolutely do it. As he says, it’s like heroin — try it once and you’re hooked.
