    In Friday's episode of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, the comedian acknowledged President Joe Biden and said he would likely be the presidential nominee in 2024. However, he also suggested that Biden's running mate is still up in the air.

    “What I could see is replacing the vice president,” Maher stated, which received rousing applause from viewers in the studio. “Because she's not extremely popular in any place. It didn't appear to go as planned. I'm not sure. It's been done before in the form of a ticket.”

    The guest on panel Caitlin Flanagan, editor of the left-wing journal The Atlantic concurred:

    “In addition to being, for some reason, an off-putting person, she also has, I think, a lot of baggage that probably wouldn't do well under a lot of scrutiny,” she added.

    Maher said: “I just think she's an unqualified politician. I think she's an intelligent person. However, I can see they're doing that because a large part of the problems in Biden having at a senile age is ‘If he dies, then you're going to have to deal with this person.'”

    Then he blasted Democrats for being enticed by the concept of identity politics.

    “So here's the problem with the Democratic party,” he said. “They're so shackled by identity politics that it's hard to imagine the Democratic ticket that doesn't include women, people of color, or an LGBTQ person. Sooner or later, you'll be lining up with the gay Latinos and you'll have to be an audiologist.”

    According to a report by Breitbart News, Harris was roundly dismissed for stressing race “equity” when discussing relief for victims of natural disasters like hurricane Ian. 

    “We have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality but we also need to fight for equity understanding that not everybody starts out at the same place,” she announced on this Friday during the Democratic National Committee Women's Leadership Forum.
