"It actually makes perfect sense, because the GOP has kind of become talk radio," the comedian and liberal political commentator said Friday on "Real Time With Bill Maher." "An echo chamber where people are not interested in actually legislating or compromising or fixing America -- just in screeching about how liberals have ruined it. So why not do it on the radio? The money's better. And no one can see your toupee."

Maher said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is "the one man currently in government" whom Republicans fully trust because "he's the guy who best understands that high office is just a higher form of talk radio. Every other Republican is suspect in some way."
