Real Time with Bill Maher returns tonight with a fresh set of guest panellists. Here’s who will join the HBO host on the show.

Chloe Maxmin

Senator, Chloe Maxmin will join Maher tonight. Maxmin appeared on the show back in 2014 for a Backstage segment, and today, making her first appearance in front of the studio audience. The guests’ current political activism focuses on environmental issues and social development.

Paul Begala

Paula Begala also makes an appearance tonight on the show, a long-time figure in American politics. Begala has acted as Bill Clinton’s advisor and also cheer leaded the former President’s 1992 campaign. We can expect the now political commentator to provide a more in-depth outlook on Biden’s current time in office and the handling of Ukraine-Russia war.

Michele Tafoya

Tafoya would not be usual choice for Maher on Real Time. However, after her long time run as a sports commentator for NBC, the guest is now an evolving figure in local politics and a regular political commentator on channels such as Fox News.

She is now a co-chair for Kendall Qualls’s campaign.

Which topics will be discussed on tonight’s show?

This week has been a rollercoaster for political news and there are a variety of topics in which Maher may choose to cover with the panel tonight.

It’s likely we can expect to hear the guests discuss the recent news about a suspected overturning of Roe v Wade in the Supreme Court, a topic several late nights hosts have touched on in recent days. The ongoing war in Ukraine is also another likely talking point for the panel tonight, more so due to the insight Begala may bring on the issue.
