I liked Maher's request that she start asking the Police, the Military, etc, what THEY will do in the event a Democrat wins. Get them on record.

Also, her reply to 'what about the farmers, who are 87% (?) for Trump'.. was perhaps not very 'in the real world'?
Let's go back to the infamous Bernie line 'a woman can't win'.
I just spent several hours with a male friend, mid 80's, who flat out said that he WILL NOT VOTE FOR A WOMAN, ... why? CAUSE A WOMAN IS NOT CAPABLE OF LEADING THE US.

He's not a farmer... he's an older white man, raised in a conservative religious background, raised HIS KIDS the SAME WAY!!!
I fully expect that his kids will vote Trump, if the Dem candidate is a woman. Actually, the males will all vote Trump anyway.
I think a SIGNIFICANT portion of the white people (women, TOO!) of 'flyover country' will vote ABTW (Anyone But the Woman).

I managed to not lose my cool.

Maher also asked Buttigieg how he was handling the ABTG (pick your gay slur). Buttigieg flubbed that, too.

Any woman or gay candidate MUST be proactively working on that problem.
Bernie has the ABTS problem.
