Comedian Bill Maher said Johnny Depp could teach the Democratic Party how to win, noting the necessity of having good representation.
Maher told his HBO Real Time viewers that he knows why the Democratic Party is losing voters and seats in Congress, pointing to Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX), who flipped a long-held Democratic seat.

“The campaign manager for the losing Democrat said, ‘We gave up a reliably Democratic congressional seat for no reason at all. We deserve to know why.’ Well, aside from your terrible attitude, I’m going to tell you why,” Maher said. “Because these voters stopped seeing your candidate as their lawyer. That’s why.”

“Their message to you was, ‘I’m an American now. I’m here. Be my lawyer, not the lawyer for the migrants showing up in my backyard,’” Maher added.
Maher criticized Democratic policy positions that have pushed voters from the party, including softness on illegal immigration, universal income proposals, woke culture overtaking education, student loan forgiveness, and transgender rights.
He specifically noted that Democrats continue to use the term “Latinx,” despite polling that indicates most Hispanic voters do not like it. “AOC keeps defending it, saying, ‘Gender is fluid. Language is fluid.’ Yes, and Latino voters are fluid — and more of them now than ever are identifying as Republicans.”

The Real Time host also mocked both major U.S. political parties in a reference to the show Law & Order.
“In the American political system, the people are represented by two separate but equally stupid groups,” Maher said. “The Republicans, who normalize constitutional crimes — and the Democrats, who pit identity groups against each other. These are their stories.”
Maher added he wants to see the Democratic Party start to win, representing him better by making better choices.
