Speaking with a panel with political consultant Rick Wilson and journalists Betsy Woodruff and Carl Hulse, Maher dismissed criticism from people who “get mad” at rooting for a recession, singling out Fox News’s Sean HannitySean Patrick HannityHannity calls for abolishing chokeholds: Develop ‘rigorous system’ to hold ‘crooked cops accountable’ Former NYPD commissioner Kelly: If unrest continues, ‘we are going to need the National Guard’ Cable news audience numbers jump amid coronavirus, protests MORE in particular and noting “I do not have this power.”
“I’m just saying we can survive a recession. We’ve had 47 of them. We’ve had one every time there’s a Republican president,” Maher declared. “They don’t last forever. You know what lasts forever? Wiping out species!”

Maher and his panel criticized the Trump administration’s announcement on Monday that it would push to roll back protections for endangered species and allow for economic factors to be weighed before adding animals to the list.
The “Real Time” host blasted Trump over the move, calling the rollback “what any evil villain would do.”
Maher finished his show of support for a recession by declaring, “Yes, a recession would be very worth getting rid of Donald Trump and these kinds of policies.”
Last week, Maher told his audience that he “really” wished there was another economic recession, arguing such an event would ruin Trump’s chances of winning reelection.
Maher also made similar comments last June on his show, at the time saying “bring on the recession” to get rid of the president.
“Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy,” he said then.
