Perhaps I have never mentioned it here before but I dearly love Bill Maher. He makes me laugh at as he points out the absurdities of American politics most especially during this insane presidential campaign. I may not agree 100% with everything he says, but his panache and no holds barred approach is fair game considering the hardening of today's political fault lines.
Bill is a controversial figure. Unabashedly liberal and atheist plus an unapologetic drug user (presumably pot), he doesn't hold back his tongue in addressing Trump loyalists as "knuckle-draggers" or as "deplorables" and in all fairness there is a significant portion that do fit the moniker.
During this interview he points very astutely at the internet echo chamber that has helped create Trump. Instead of cyberspace becoming a resource for truth it has become a place where the like-minded congregate to feed off each other's common hatred of the enemy.
In a setting such as this, objective truth has little value...
