Comedian Bill Maher on his Friday show suggested a new mantra for the Republican Party, which he said captured its fondness for axing both country-of-origin meat labeling and the estate tax: “eat shit and die.”
Maher was riffing on the House’s recent approval of a bill to repeal mandatory labeling of what nation beef, pork and poultry imported into the U.S. comes from, which he characterized as a regulation to save corporations from people – not the other way around.
“How do you write that law in a way that explains that law is good for people? What do you name it, the ‘Freedom From Information Act?’ The ‘Don’t Worry Your Pretty Little Head About It Act’?” Maher said.
He went on to skewer infamous climate change denier Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) for threatening to host hearings on NASA’s alleged “bias” and tell the “other side of the story” on carbon.
“Yes, we need to balance the facts with the anti-facts,” Maher said. “Because we’re the United States of You Don’t Really Wanna Know.”
