Milo and Bill Maher disagreed on many topics during their interview tonight.

But the one the pair – and the audience – appeared to resonate with equally was the fact that liberals take the bait and get triggered far too often.

It was a conclusion they reached after briefly discussing none other than Jeremy Scahill – the Intercept journalist who dropped out of this evening’s show after hearing Milo would be on.

“What that silly man who had a hissy fit doesn’t understand is that if you don’t show up to a debate, you lose,” said Milo, echoing Bill Maher’s statement on the topic earlier this week.

The crowd began cheering at that – but it’s what Maher said next that had them really hollering.

“And also, stop taking the bait,” he said. “They all freaked out.”

Referring to Milo, he added, “this little impish fag” made liberals freak out like schoolgirls.

 

Following the interview, some, like the tweeter below, have taken to the web to voice praise for Maher and Milo – two men from opposing ends of the political spectrum who managed to not kill each other.

Not everyone is happy, of course. In fact, several liberals appear to have done just what Maher accused them of – taking the bait and freaking out.

  • getBrutal

    Epic! Milo should panel with Affleck.

    • William

      I’d like to see Milo panel with Judd Apatow.

  • Timothy B Sarver

    Again, they call Milo racist and accuse him of “hate speech” but they can never offer any actual evidence of either. Hurt feelings is not hate speech.

    • Stacie Shannon

      Exactly. Someone needs to school the left. It’s not hate speech just because you hate it.

      • dana daddee

        haven’t you figured it out? the offendables are not schoolable…

    • Kimchi Ninja

      The left are not really capable of forming a coherent thought. It’s like Milo is the guy who emerged from his sleep chamber into the Idiocracy world, to find basic reasoning skills are like superhuman powers.

  • Anonymous

    Totally ❤ Milo.

  • Michael Damiani

    Interesting interview. I do believe he should have given u a right of reply concerning Trump’s attitude to free speech, but it is his gig. Perhaps if and when u get your own show , you could invite him along and repay him in kind.

  • Richard Head

    Maher needs to do a whole hour with Milo; this wasn’t long enough, but he needs to let Milo talk and not stop him when Maher starts feeling uncomfortable. Maher’s become a real pussy.

    • Andrew Cole

      I agree… This was way too short. They sparred like long lost chums… It was great TV.

    • Kimchi Ninja

      Yup. Every time Milo started to get a joke going, and was about to hit the punchline…Maher saw that coming and cut him off.

      There’s not really anything of substance in the whole interview (not Milo’s fault, that’s just the corporate game), except the truth they both agree on; that libs just can’t stop taking the bait.

    • Ron Whosoever Williams

      I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath, watching these two talk. Milo is very quick-witted. Once Bill realized that, Bill started doing the same thing: talking over each other before the other was finished speaking, talking to the audience as the other is talking, etc… It was like watching two ‘Tazmanian Devils’ from the Looney Toon cartoons!

      • Richard Head

        Maher was afraid Milo would say something shocking and interrupted him when he started going off on Lena Dunham, Leslie Jones, and Amy Schumer. That’s Milo’s shtick. But, you know, what he says really isn’t that shocking; we’ve been caught up in this PC crap for so long it just seems like it.

        • Kimchi Ninja

          Exactly. Who is old enough to remember Eddie Murphy and those types of comedians? We had to sneak into the theater to see “Delirious” cause it was so dangerous or whatever.

          It’s just cause the left outlawed humor, that this “off limits” stuff is so shocking. Well piss off libs, cause it’s NOT off limits.

  • Can’t Disagree But…
  • TT

    though Maher interrupted Milo at several points, I have to say, seeing them both converse and joke around was refreshing to see

    • TT

      Going to take a different stance than most people here most likely, I feel this ultimately was a good thing. No doubt Maher was
      interrupting and generally being rude at times, however, this
      conversation, though people were telling Milo off, the tone was
      generally alot less tense than most of the things I’ve seen Milo do.
      Like, seeing guys generally be trash talking, joking, trying to argue.
      It felt like a more natural conversation with people who probably don’t
      agree on everything, laughing and it was entertaining to watch, and I think that’s ok.

  • JT

    Milo won the night. Maher is a horrible interviewer, and definitely seemed threatened by Milo’s charm.

  • Mad as Hell

    I don’t think Maher could have been more rude. Did he invite Milo to the show for a discussion, or, to take cheap shots and not allow his guest to get a word in? I am going to go with the latter.
    Milo did a fantastic job of defending his views, when he was able to.
    Maher was entirely unprofessional.

    • dana daddee

      and that surprises you? hahahahaha

  • Rodney

    And they all had no problem whooping it up when Maher called him “little impish fag”. They loved the name calling then. The liberals hypocrisy was on exhibit, completely uncensored for everyone to see. The smell of hate and intolerance that filled that room really reeked!!!

    • Nohbody

      To be fair, that’s hardly worse than some of the stuff Milo has called himself and laughed about. Heck, look at the name he chose for his speaking tour.

  • gabergen

    Milo would get people to watch his show. I have tried, but every time the lies spouted as truth just drives me away.

  • Terri Chapman

    milo…love…maher…love…we can disagree! and still get along…

  • Terri Chapman

    if you don’t show up to debate, you lost!

    • Sunflowergirlntx

      That was GOLD

    • William

      This is the Left’s version of taking their ball and going home if they can’t make rules or start to lose.

  • Terri Chapman

    dang it…would have loved to hear milo defend our president! but, good discussion nonetheless

  • Clay James Belter

    Except Hitchens said virtually all the same sort of things Milo does. The way the left have gone, Hitchens would be typing them day and night as he hated the pc crowd

  • Ed Hines

    Difference between an arguement and a debate: one seeks to win the other seeks accuracy.

  • Stacie Shannon

    Pussy move by Maher, slamming Trump right at the end then walking away.
    Why are all Trump haters so obsessed with him?

    • thedarkangel1975

      Trump is a threat to their Socialism and restriction of free speech. Trump could be the conquer of The Social Justice Warriors

      • Kimchi Ninja

        Yup, I think the SJWs will break.

        They are fragile, ready to snap, keep trolling these twats!! ????

  • Joseph Estrada

    That was some great TV.

  • Niko S

    He is so adorable….

  • Sunflowergirlntx

    I personally would love to see Milo check both of those Hoe’s Whoopie and Joy on the view. Has he ever been on their show?

  • Frank

    When Maher calling Milo a “little impish fag” the crowd went wild, which shows me one thing and one thing alone. The left are vile ass holes and need to all die….and they accuse Milo of hate speech?

  • Yankee ’42

    Why these shows ratings are worst than used toilet paper you might ask? Maher, just like Maddow, Noah, Todd and Lemon are so in love with their own irrelevant voices that you can’t pass the first five minutes, and I really tried. Milo should start interview them and let them shit on themselves for not bringing a real substance to the table

  • dana daddee

    the offendables continue to lose relevance by the hour and I laugh and laugh and laugh….

    • Jesusgirl04

      Oh em gee!!! I LOVE this comment!!! The “offendables” maybe we should officially rename our political parties the “deplorables” and the “offendables”

  • lauro andrea

    Milo really took the stage there! And nope, Trump isn’t against free speech. He’s against fake news. The amount of dirt and mud slung on his family even his ten year old son is just enough to get any guy on the warpath to silence free speech but he hasn’t. Proof that liberals have their heads up their smelly asses.

    • Jules Vernes

      If Trump is against fake news, why does he spread more fake news than anyone? That’s a serious question and I am hoping for a serious answer from someone that is on-topic (rather than some off-topic diatribe against the media or Trump opponents).

      I am not talking about opinions he expresses – you can agree with them or not agree with them, that’s fine. Even when he makes economic promises that are incredibly unlikely to be fulfillable, I would never call those “lies” as I cannot prove that they are not fulfillable, and I would give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he genuinely believes it can be done.

      But Trump says more things than any Republican or Democrat politician that is easily PROVED incorrect. If he hates fake news, why does he do it? Even lying about minor and unimportant things that can be disproved within a second of googling (like when he said that it did not rain during his inaugural address when it did, or that he won more electoral college votes than anyone since Reagan, when Bush sen., Clinton and Obama twice won more than his 306).

      Can one of the Trump fans respond to that? And not with the usual “the MSM lies” etc – that is not the question here. I agree that the media – all media – twists facts and I am not a fan. I just have one simple question: Why do so many statements that are conclusively provable lies come out of Trump’s mouth? If he does not like fake news, why does he spread it?

  • Kexessa

    As always what you have to say is on point, but I LOVED the pearls, and the ruby ring!

  • Can’t Disagree But…
  • Ron Whosoever Williams

    I thought this interview was great! Bill and Milo agreed to disagree and it’s OKAY. If people can learn to get over their self-righteousness (yes, I see the irony in this comment) and learn that not everybody shares the same views as they do AND can work together to find common ground, I believe we can move forward as a society. Until that’s realized, we’re going to remain polarized for many more days to come. 🙁

  • Watch It

    I didn’t like Bill’s cheap shot about Trump at the end. If you’re going to bring on a guest and challenge him, let him rebuttal it. What he said made no sense anyways seeing as how Trump is the first President to not give in to political correctness which is used to silence free speech.

  • Rita Patricie

    Milo speaks the truth … pasty face Bill Mahar is a liar with a political agenda. Trump won 33 States, and over 4,000 counties out of 5,500 counties do the math… WE THE PEOPLE WANT AND VOTED FOR TRUMP… LIBERALS CONTINUE TO ENSLAVED AMERICAN CITIZENS… KEEPING BLACKS IN GHETTO PLANTATIONS…

  • Drake kron

    Wilmore’s meltdown was hilarious.
    “Hurr hurr GO FUCK YOURSELF!” (Wow what a great point I just made!)
    CLAPPING SEALS INTENSIFIES
    Real Time is continuously a sort of leftist daycare where they come to spew their frustration with losing the culture war by using schoolyard insults.

  • Tommy Faulkner

    Maher dodged and puckered when Milo praised him for their coinciding views on Islam. The left will eat itself from the inside out. Political correctness is a cancer that always devours it’s host, no pun intended.

  • Conservativegirl

    Maher barely let Milo speak or reply to accusations. It was polite that’s all you can say.

  • Dana Smith

    Lol, most people posting here I think are missing the point, and I think probably missing the take away message that Milo would have hoped people might get. Yet everyone is complaining that Maher didn’t give Milo enough time or that Maher talked over him. If you go to the progressive Twitter verse, people are saying the OPPOSITE, that Maher didn’t interrupt ENOUGH or shout him out. I follow Milo not to hate on him, but to get away from the progressive bubble (plus I agree with him around 35 percent of the time). It’s time you guys did the same and stopped indulging in this giant circle jerk of recreational partisanship.

    What we saw between Maher and Milo was a perfectly civil conversation. After all the bitching about Milo being barred from discussions and debates, he’s finally invited on a liberal’s show and treated with as much respect as Milo gives in return and STILL it isn’t good enough for you guys. C’mon guys.

    • Mike Williams

      That bald asshole in the glasses chastised Milo for, not letting him “finish his comment” when Milo want to rebut his point, and then the same asshole cut Milo off repeatedly to shut him up. Milo showed class, and was not reciprocated. Period.

  • Ayatollyahso

    “theRussians….The Russians…” Maher was regurgitating the bullshit storyline..

    IF “the Russians influenced the election”:

    Exactly How? Liberal geniuses? They didn’t hack into voting machines and change vote totals: only dem operatives had logs reflecting 500 votes where there were only 60 paper ballots in the locked box.

    By stealing and releasing e-mails???

    Uncovering Hillarys’ and the dnc corruption??? I noticed NOBODY ever said the e-mail CONTENT was falsified.

    IFYOU ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO: commit crimes; Like handling classified traffic and (accepting bribes A.K.A. “speaking fees”?) Online ,(on unsecured systems) you are too dangerous and naive to run the entire govt.

    “Comey cost Hillary the election”! No Bill, Sorry. Hillary cost Hillary the election.

  • Pablo Jay

    I bow to you Milo!
    Your trolling of the panelists last night was fantastic. You actually got them to behave in exactly the same way they had just berated you for! Man, that was magnificent! Thanks.

  • Debbie Kirby

    Maher could be funny without all the hate and profanity. Don’t care for him. Milo is a genius.

    • Jules Vernes

      I like Milo, but what makes him a genius? He is a provocateur like Hitchens was, revels in it, but he is very much Hitchens light. Hitchens was an intellectual giant who could be cutting, sophisticated and crude with his insults. Milo is intelligent but no intellectual, and his insults don’t go beyond crude. That is totally fine; some people deserve to get a few crude insults thrown at them – and Milo can’t just dish it out, he has proved that he can take it as well, which is a rare quality. But I am very much missing the genius part – what do you mean by that?

  • hairyback

    I actually enjoyed that interview and it looked like Milo was enjoying himself too. Unlike the other leftists, bill didn’t seem to be sucking on a lemon throughout which was a welcome change, but of course isn’t as funny to see.

  • Gary

    The real haters were those 2 spades.

  • Rod Bates

    maher is nuts. He agrees with black lives matter? Maher is all over the place.

    • mark

      Maher just said it wasn’t a hate group, he didn’t say he agreed with every individual BLM activist.

  • William

    What I see from the tweet responses is a fragile Progressive Left, who has created this pseudo bubble of theirs in order to keep people with opposing views like Milo’s out. And they call this echo chamber a place of “intellectual discourse on important issues.

    It’s only discourse if views are being challenged, otherwise it’s a protest rally. Only Bill Maher got that.

  • Becky Vonderau Zucker

    Milo manhandled Maher. Maher became so flustered, he had to announce loudly Milo is a fag, along with other descriptive words. Milo kept the audience on beat, and Maher couldn’t handle it. Maher is the opposite of a fag, he is a pussy.

    • Jules Vernes

      Wow, you really did not get the exchange between Milo and Maher at all, did you? Milo did. They both had a good time, unlike many people posting here who did not get it at all. Sad.

  • Diana Maras

    Being offended is a choice. Demanding that others be punished for your choices is batshit crazy.

    Also, I can’t stand these f*cking labels: conservative, liberal …….

    If you embrace labels then you are not a thinker. – you’re a joiner. You decided to join a group and adopt their views. That’s not thinking. That’s herding. And it’s stupid.

  • John David Lindsey

    That show was great. I idolized Milo’s pearl necklace.

  • Hoboken Lucy

    I am a former Liberal, mostly because when I was growing up, it was the Conservatives that were so uptight and judgmental and inflexible. I LOVE MILO! The political left have gone completely nuts and spew so much judgement, anger and rage. We have nothing in this country if we don’t have our freedom and our honesty. I have always said that I don’t want to live in a fake society, wondering who the bigots are. Let people express themselves, give them the freedom to be honest and flawed and imperfect. It’s the only shot we have to work through our differences and co-exist as a unified, free America.

  • TerryML

    Dear Milo, I want to applaud your willingness to appear on Bill Maher’s show and endure the the abuse that you received from the left. You willingly took abuse for things that you probably do not espouse, which shows a high degree of character. I am a Christian that believes as Jesus said the “Kingdom of God is not of this world.” Therefore, I do not impose my belief on anyone but with joy, I cannot deny the source of my happiness and want to tell the world. You gave a textbook example on how to handle the haters who really do not care for dialogue and for that, i thank you. You endure so much for so many on the right and on the left that neither understand you or embrace you. My prayer is that you experience the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge and that you will not be overcome by the empty hatred of man. Blessings to you- Terry

  • Rev Pete

    It hardly deserves to be called an interview or even an exchange of ideas as Milo was shut down before completing any sentences or answering any accusations.

    • mark

      He was a good interview quit being a pussy

      • Rev Pete

        Why thank you for such astounding advice Mark

  • goldsage

    Please Milo see if you can take over Maher’s place. You are much more interesting.

  • Escaping Atheism ن​

    It’s a shame you didn’t have a chance to go after Maher for his “anti-religious” stance. He’s been so DEEPLY dishonest about religious people, especially Catholics, the last decade+, he needs to be taken down a peg. What a horrible, nasty, genuinely bigoted man who does nothing but spread ignorance about innocent people.

    • mark

      You can’t counter Bill Maher’s arguments factually so you just call him a bigot. Just like how feminist call Milo a transphobe when MILO says transgender people are mentally ill(which is true. ).

  • Neuroplastik50

    vile hate – not free speech? What ? typical libtard sentiment…. feelings before rationality

  • Patriot123579

    You want hate speech? Listen to Judd Apatow minimize rape victims and villify children. Listen to Sarah Silverman advocate armed insurgency against our government. Listen to Ashley Judd promote people being “nasty” and awful to each other.

    The real hate and racism is coming from the Left these days. It’s gone full circle.

  • Bill Bradbrooke

    Maher agrees that liberals should stop taking the bait then, in the panel with Larry Wilmore, HE TAKES THE BAIT!! Terrific.

  • shappens

    I watched Maher once then twice because ‘Milo’

  • myddrinemrys

    The wonders of the regressives. They walk around in a perpetual state of high dudgeon, perpetually offended.

    I can just hear them as they repeat the immortal words of Queen Victoria: “We are NOT amused.”
