Bill Maher says he’s tired of “the most gullible” demographic in the U.S. supporting woke causes that are the equivalent of saying “let’s eat in the bathroom and s— in the kitchen.”

The HBO “Real Time” host blasted millennials and other liberals during his most recent episode for embracing “stupid” ideas while framing their critics as old or out of touch.

“A third of people under 35 say they’re in favor of abolishing the police. Not defunding — but doing away with a police force altogether. … Thirty-six percent of millennials think it might be a good idea to try communism. But much of the world did try it. I know, millennials think that doesn’t count because they weren’t alive when it happened.”

Mr. Maher noted that calling him “old” for opposing their ideas is a red herring.

“Abolish the police? And the Border Patrol? And capitalism? And cancel Lincoln? No, I get it,” he said. “The problem isn’t that I don’t get what you’re saying or that I’m old, the problem is your ideas are stupid.”

Mr. Maher punctuated his social commentary, fittingly, with humor.

“If you say, ‘Let’s eat in the bathroom and s— in the kitchen,’ yeah, that’s a new idea, but I wouldn’t call it interior design.”

Warning: Strong language.
