Bill Maher ‘Pissed Off’ about Ebola


BILL MAHER: I said in the monologue I was pissed off about Ebola and I am… People are nervous and I don’t blame them for being nervous. There’s a lot of talk now about whether we should have travel restrictions from that part of the world…

Because when the first doctor came back, the one who survived it, we saw him get out of the ambulance, he had the suit on. It was like okay, this is not the third world.

I said I wouldn’t get this upset, but I did. Because they love their freedom down in Texas. They don’t like rules and regulations and telling us what to do and revenuers and the federal government.
