Bill Maher called the Democrats the “loser party,” during a segment “Real Time with Bill Maher,” according to the Daily Caller.
He also suggested that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “should have quit” during Barack Obama’s presidency.
“Well, it’s not like her death was a shock.”
“She was 100 and had cancer like a million times. She was a great justice but should have quit.”
“The Democratic plan for the Supreme Court was Ruth Bader Ginsburg doesn’t die,” he added.
“And that’s why they’re such a loser party. I vote for them but they don’t know how to do politics.”
“I mean, as great as she was in many ways, that really put us in a bad place because as I keep trying to say on my show, power begets power.”
“When you lose power, you keep losing it,” he added.
“That’s where we are now. Because we lose presidential elections, they appoint justices, now the Supreme Court is 6-to-3, that’s going to go on for a very long time.”
“That’s what I mean,” the late-night host shared. “You lose power and then you lose it again.”

Maher went on to suggest that Obama had Ginsburg to the Oval Office during his time in office to “hint” that she should retire.
“She should have taken the hint,” the HBO talk show host said.
Maher continued and wondered out loud if the 2020 election ends up in the court, as happened in 2000 with Bush v. Gore, which person the justices will “go with.”
The comments come following Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation Monday as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States following President Donald Trump’s nomination of the judge after Ginsburg’s death last month.
