Bill Maher: Ted Cruz Is ‘Smart,’ ‘Evil’ And ‘Diabolical’ (VIDEO)

Bill Maher said on Tuesday night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is the most dangerous Republican presidential candidate because Cruz is “smart,” “evil” and “diabolical.”

“Ted Cruz is always the worst,” Maher said. “I said it because he is. He’s smart and evil. The other ones are true dummies, like Rubio. You know, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, he just says the words.”

Maher called himself a “true cynic” for his views.

“Ted Cruz is diabolical. He’s smart,” he said. “He’s smart, but he knows what to say to his dummy base that they will believe.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
