Bill Maher on ‘Rosengate’: Meant to Say Ann Romney Has ‘Never Gotten Her Ass Out of the House to Work’

Bill Maher once again shows his lack of class!!

Weighing in on the controversy that became known as “Rosengate,“ Bill Maher said Friday he thinks Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen meant to say Ann Romney ”has never gotten her ass out of the house to work.”

Rosen drew outrage this week when she said the stay-at-home wife of GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney “never worked a day in her life.” Rosen subsequently apologized for her remarks, saying she did not mean to denigrate stay-at-home moms.

First calling the flap the latest in “stupid, non-consequential meaningless controversies” to engulf the presidential campaign, Maher said Rosen’s word choice was “perhaps inartful.”

“But what she meant to say, I think, was that Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house to work,” Maher said. “No one’s denying that being a mother is a tough job — I remember that I was a handful. OK, but there is a big difference in being a mother in that tough job, and getting your ass out of the door at 7 a.m. when it’s cold, having to deal with the boss, being in a workplace, and even if you’re unhappy you can’t show it for eight hours, that is a different kind of tough thing, isn’t it?”

Watch the clip below (content warning – strong language). Hilary Rosen/Ann Romney discussion begins around the 4:40 mark:

  • Have you ever noticed that after the Dems screws up, like Rosen did with Ann Romney, Mayer intentionally goes way over the top in insults to take the heat off of the Dems. After the Repubs cry foul, the Dems just shrug their shoulder and say, "Chill out, he's only a comedian."

    • @dcmfox what KILLS me, is that the man who CREATED the Bullshit that IS the "trickle-down" theory(that'd be Stockman..)
      is NOW a moderate, calling out the crazies on his team.
      Irony is so sweet.

      It is strange to see an actual "moderate" they seem to be a rare breed. If the far right hadn't won so much ground in 2010 and they think it will continue.

      I can't see how. OWS is already starting back up in Idaho, yes Idaho this week. Haven't heard a peep from the tea party.

  • Is it just me, or does everyone feel a soul-encompassing urge to punch Bill Maher right in his cock-holster?

    While I applaud his ability to make money out of a socio-political stance, I would still like to meet this dude on the street and break his teeth out on the curb.

    • @TEXAS HOLDEM123 Oh, I'm crushed by your "only guy making commments on your main page" retort. Being relatively new to LL, I didn't realize you could do such a thing, thus I put a "Happy Easter" out to everyone. Boy, am I a loser...

      WRT BM, I don't give a shit what network he's on, or what the segment in question actually dealt with.

      Bill Maher has been anti-military from day 1. THAT is what makes me feel the urge to hit him so hard that maybe his offspring will live i More..

    • @TEXAS HOLDEM123
      Some people don't like Bill because he's simply an ideologue and hypocrite (calling out Romney's wife knowing that her status is shared by many wives of Democratic politician). His views are predictably one sided solely meant to serve a political POV from a comedic stance. This only works when one has the ability to have their message appeal to a broader audience. Some comedians are very good at this, Jon Stewart, Colbert, Chappelle, but Maher just doesn't have this talent (exp More..

  • Why are so many offended by facts? If you earn less than 270k a year, you are a boob if you call yourself a republican. Republican is the party for the wealthy, not the party of poor. Fools.

  • Republican's actions over the last few years have focused on supressing women's civil rights. They may not see it that way, but apparently women do. They can try to argue with women or stop trying to tell them what they have to do with their bodies.

  • The point made was a fair one, what can the wife of a multimillionaire know about struggling to make ends meet, or have in common with a woman who works two jobs just to put food on the table.
    If Romney doesn't want hie wife to face criticism he shouldn't put her in the spotlight.
