‘She IS a Nut!’ Bill Maher Slaps Back at Lindsey Graham Over Amy Coney Barrett Rant at KBJ Hearing

Comic and pundit Bill Maher responded to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s complaint, raised at Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearing, that Maher once called Justice Amy Coney Barrett a “fucking nut.”

Graham was among several Republicans to ostentatiously complain about past treatment of Supreme Court nominees, including referencing the time that Maher — not a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee or holder of any elected office — called then-Judge Barrett a “fucking nut.”

On Friday night’s edition of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the host took on Graham’s complaint, and reiterated his prior assessment of now-Justice Barrett:

MR. MAHER: Lindsey Graham took a shot at me. He didn’t say my name, but, I don’t know if we have that quote from Lindsey Gr… Just imagine what would have happened… And now he’s talking to Judge Jackson. But again, they’re mad about the last one. “Just imagine what would happen if people on late night television called you an F-ing nut, speaking in tongues because you practice the Catholic faith in a way they couldn’t relate to or found uncomfortable? OK. not people on late night television, ME! Nobody else called Amy Comey, what is her name? By the way, why do Supreme Court justices three names like serial killers, they all have three names. It’s just,

MR. HEILEMANN: I mean, at least there’s an issue there that connects to the First Amendment. Lindsey Graham basically saying, Just imagine we lived in America where you could speak your mind on television like Bill Maher does. I mean, what’s the problem with that?

MR. MAHER: But Amy Comey Barrett — is that her name? — whatever it is, she is a nut. That is nutty.

MR. HEILEMANN: Yes.

MR. MAHER: I’m sorry. She grew up in The Handmaid’s Tale. She, she — that is nutty.
