Bill Maher says Zach Galifianakis Joint Wasn’t Real (Video)Author: Jon Martin | Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010 |
Bill Maher sat down with Wolf Blitzer the day after Halloween to discuss the elections and Maher’s views on Proposition 19. Friday on Real Time with Bill Maher, Zach Galifanakis lit up a joint during a round table discussion about Prop 19. The audience and the rest of the panel seemed very amused but no one else would take a drag. Discussing the incident, Maher now says that Galifanakis didn’t smoke a real joint and that it was ‘cloves’. Is he covering for Zach or did Zach really not smoke a real joint?
Proposition 19 has been a big issue this election, with tons of people turning out to vote. The polls are split around 51/49 percent, 51 % supporting the legalization of marijuana for recreational use. Maher says he supports it’s passage and plans to vote ‘yes’ on Proposition 19. Though this would legalize marijuana on a state-wide level, marijuana would still be considered illegal on a federal level.
If it was a real joint, could Galifianakis get in trouble? Not likely, HBO will no doubt claim that whatever Zach smoked was not actually marijuana. They told E! online that it was a ‘prop’. Even if Galifianakis was hauled to jail, they would need evidence for a conviction, and even if he was convicted, chances are it would just be a small fine. Real Time is filmed in California, you have to remember, the laws on weed are a little relaxed there.
Maher on Islam
Blitzer also discussed the other part of Friday’s Real Time that raised some eyebrows. Specifically, when Maher said:
I actually agree with Maher on this. Liberal or Conservative, we can all agree that we don’t want the US to become a nation that follows Islam. Maher points out the obvious reasons, civil rights, women’s rights, seperation of church and state. There’s a reason his show was called ‘Politically Incorrect’, it’s because sometimes the truth is not politically correct. If you’re against religious conservatives and state-run religion, you should be against Islam coming to this country in it’s Middle-Eastern form. The radicals of Islam are much more radical than any fundamentalist Christians in our country, that’s for sure.
Then again, maybe it is the environment that those people lives in that makes them become radicals. How much of their environment is a product of their religion though? It seems that the fundamentalists of Islam are the ones that ruin the religion for the rest of the people, it is the fundamentalists that keep the cycle of violence and poverty continuing.
