This weekend on his show, Bill Maher suggested that if Biden runs again in 2024, she should consider dumping Kamala Harris from the ticket, and his liberal audience actually clapped.
Maher said that he respects Harris but that she is just not liked by enough voters.
He also criticized the Democrats for being too obsessed with identity politics.

Bill Maher suggests Biden bump Kamala Harris from Dem ticket in 2024: ‘I just think she’s a bad politician’
“Real Time” host Bill Maher suggested that President Biden should cut Vice President Kamala Harris from the Democratic ticket if he chooses to seek reelection.
During a panel discussion Friday night, Maher addressed the “paradox” among Democrats who approve of Biden’s job as president yet don’t want him to run in 2024.
But Maher insisted that Biden “is not giving it up,” comparing him to Dracula for crossing “oceans of time” to become president.
“Once you have that real estate, and you wake up in the White House, and your office is the Oval, I just don’t think you give it up,” Maher said. “It’s very hard to take away the nomination from the president, a sitting president.”
“What I could see is replacing the vice president,” Maher continued, which immediately sparked applause from his liberal audience. “Because she’s just not very popular anywhere. And it didn’t seem to work out. And, I don’t know, that’s been done before on a ticket.”

Some people on the left were not happy about Bill’s comments.
I like Kamala Harris. I’ve voted for her several times out here in California and I’m proud that she’s our Veep.
Bill Maher, OTOH, I used to be a fan and I hate to say this, but he’s gotten bitter and I’m not finding him as funny as he used to be.

Bill definitely hit a nerve.
