On Friday, Bill Maher dropped a major reveal at the end of his HBO political satire program “Real Time' - the true identity of “Q.” Maher’s final rule in his “New Rules” segment announced to the world that Maher himself is “Q.” Maher was joking of course as he was calling out - for the second week in a row - just how silly the latest Trumpworld conspiracy theory is.
“If Trump supporters don’t want us to call them stupid they have to stop coming up with things like Q,” Maher joked.
“Q,” the so-called leader of the QAnon conspiracy theory, is an unidentified person within the Deep State that has ‘Q’ level security clearance and is leaking out government secrets to take down Trump. “So he knows all the shit that goes on in the Deep State,” Maher joked. “Namely that our government is riddled with a rogue criminal element that is interested in evil in general, but their specialty is pedophilia.”
“Just a few months agoI was talking about how Republicans are now the Conspiracy Party and that there is nothing so ridiculous they won’t swallow: birth certificate, Chemtrail, Jade Helm, Lizard People, and now we have Q.”
When discussing the alt-right’s obsession with accusing leftists of wanting to legalize pedophilia, Maher joked, “Donald Trump was just posing as a disgusting pervert the last half century to gain credibility so he can go after perverts now.”

Earlier on the program, Maher slammed Fox New’s Laura Ingraham for her controversial rant against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the “browning” of America. “In some parts of the country, it does seem like the America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore. Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people—and they’re changes that none of us ever voted for and most of us don’t like,” said Ingraham.
“So is the dog whistle dead? We’re just saying it outright now?” Maher joked in reaction to Ingraham’s statements.
Maher had previously defended Ingraham on free speech grounds, but he claims those days are now over. “I want to defend Laura Ingraham,” said Maher. “I know it sounds ridiculous, but it has to do with the Parkland kids and guns and free speech... Again, he is in the arena, and then he calls for a boycott of her sponsors. Really? Is that American? He complains about bullying? That’s bullying! I have been the victim of a boycott I’ve lost a job as a result. It is wrong. You shouldn’t do this by team, you should do it by principle.”
