“Real Time” host Maher, a Trump critic, said during the wide-ranging chat with Kid Rock that he didn’t want to “quibble” about politics.
Rock then revealed that he had lost two “really close friends” due to his political views.
“They weren’t friends,” Maher replied.
“Let’s just not instinctively hate somebody because of who they are and what team they’re on,” Maher insisted, saying Americans have to “stop shutting each other out.”
“You can hate him,” Maher said of Trump, but “you can’t hate everybody who likes him.”
“I will never understand why you like this whiny little bitch,” Maher told Kid Rock with a smile. “You’re such a real man, and he’s such a little bitch.”
“He’s the greatest friend you can have, and he’s the guy you want in the front line if you have to fight,” Kid Rock later said of Trump.
“He is everything wrong with human beings stuffed into one man,” Maher countered of the ex-president.
