There’s no denying HBO’s Real Time host Bill Maher is as left-wing as it gets.
Still, from time to time, the host presses Democrats with uncomfortable questions other Fake News Media hosts never would.
And Adam Schiff was dumbfounded when Bill Maher skewered him with this one simple question.
Comedian Bill Maher has hosted HBO’s Real Time since 2003.
Most of the time, the host lampoons conservatives, while inviting on panels of mostly left-wing commentators to talk about the news du jour.
That explains why Adam Schiff was blindsided by Bill Maher laying into him about how terrible their home state of California has become under Democrat rule.
Maher began by saying he needed to “b**** a little” about how Democrats were running things.
Then the host continued, “There is an exodus. California businesses are leaving the state in droves. In just 2018 and 19, which were economic boom years, 765 commercial facilities left, 13,000 between 2009 and 2016. Look, I came out here in 1983. I found paradise. I love California. I do. I don’t want to leave, but I feel like I’m living in Italy in the 70s or something. Super high taxes, potholes in the road, fires. I don’t know what I’m getting for my super-high taxes.”
Maher asked Schiff straight up, “What do you say about that as a California representative?”
Schiff was caught flat-footed, stammering out “Well, I think we have to make every effort to make this a more business-friendly state. And I don’t think that there’s anything incompatible with being progressive and also wanting to make sure that this is a place that businesses can survive and thrive.”
Lefty @BillMaher complains to @AdamSchiff about “exodus” from Democrat-controlled California. “I feel like I’m living in Italy in the 70s or something — super high taxes, potholes in the road, I don’t know what I’m getting for my super-high taxes.” #RealTime pic.twitter.com/8eIc4qqEQ3

Democrats have transformed California into a socialist dystopia.
Things are so bad the state regularly had brown outs during the summer of 2020 as they couldn’t supply residents with enough power through their so-called “green energy.”
And they’re only going to get worse as conservatives and independents like Ben Shapiro and Joe Rogan are packing up and moving their companies to more business friendly states.
Sadly, if Democrats seize control of Washington, D.C. in November, the rest of America may get a chance to see what it’s like to live in a socialist nightmare like California.
