Comedian Bill Maher said Friday night that Democrats are “blowing” their chances of defeating President Trump next year by proposing “crazy” open border and free college policies.

“All the Democrats have to do to win is to come off less crazy than Trump — and, of course, they’re blowing it!” Maher said in his closing monologue during his HBO show, “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

“Coming across as unserious people who are going to take away all your money so migrants from Honduras can go to college for free and get a major in ‘America sucks.’”

Maher did not identify any specific candidate in his diatribe, but was referring instead to the leftward lurch of the Democratic field.

Some Democrats have embraced the idea of forgiving some or all student loan debt, while others back the decriminalization of illegal border crossings. In a debate on June 28, all 10 Democrats on stage raised their hands when asked whether they support providing government health insurance to illegal immigrants.

Several leading candidates, including Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris support Medicare for All, or some version of a health care plan that would wipe out private insurance.

Sanders, who introduced a Medicare for All bill in the Senate, has said that the measure would “absolutely” cover illegal immigrants.

Maher made it clear Friday he is no fan of Trump, saying that the Republicans runs on fear in order to jazz up his base. He also said that he reluctantly supports former Vice President Joe Biden.

“Now, do I want Biden to be president? Not really. But Biden is the only Democrat who beats Trump in Ohio,” said Maher, who offered up several one-liners to explain Biden’s appeal.

“He’s like non-dairy creamer. Nobody loves it, but in a jam it gets the job done,” the comedian said.

“I can’t figure people out, but they just like Joe. Maybe it’s the familiarity. He’s like a McDonald’s when you’re in Europe.”
