Real Time with Bill Maher tradition is saying goodbye to the conservatives voted out of office. But for the new year, Bill Maher debuted a new segment introducing (or warning) his audience about a fresh crop of Republicans.

At the end of season 18, Maher happily waved goodbye to President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. They may have gone kicking and screaming as Maher predicted, but a new administration did in fact take over on Jan. 20.

Last night on Real Time, Maher reminded his audience that Republicans “restock [d-bags] with the efficiency of an Amazon warehouse.” Since the election, a number of GOP members have jumped into the spotlight by pushing false claims about voter fraud in an attempt to appease former President Trump and/or his base.

So Maher decided to introduce a new Real Time segment to spotlight select Republicans he feels will be a thorn in our collective side for the next few years. Watch below as Maher profiles Senator Josh Hawley, Representative Lauren Boebert, and more:

Bill Maher doesn’t hold back in insulting Republicans

Perhaps only Senator Ted Cruz became a bigger villain than Senator Josh Hawley after the assault on the Capitol. But many people were already familiar with Sen. Cruz so Maher’s formal introduction to Sen. Hawley is helpful. The Real Time host describes the Senator from Missouri as “an opportunistic infection.”

Maher only gets more ruthless from there. Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado is compared to Michelle Bachmann on bath salts. Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville is like “if a hot mic slur got voted into office.” Representative Madison Cawthorn is blamed for instigating the mob at the “Stop the Steal” rally. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is an unhinged conspiracy theorist.

Nobody in late night television can put together a string of insults quite like Bill Maher. This new segment proves that just because President Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and other faces from the previous administration are fading from the spotlight, that doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods yet. Thankfully we have someone like Maher sounding the alarm.
