Bill Maher wasn’t impressed with Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera fining Jack Del Rio.

The defensive coordinator of the Commanders was fined after he referred to the January 6 riot at the Capitol as a “dust up,” and asked why people weren’t as outraged about the riots that swept across America in 2020.

For reasons that don’t seem clear to any rational person, Del Rio was hit with a $100,000 fine from head coach Ron Rivera for his comments because his opinion was apparently simply not acceptable.

During the Friday episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the popular comedian and host sounded off on the Commanders for pretending like the team gives a damn about free speech while fining people for their opinions.

Maher said the following about Del Rio’s situation:

Fining someone for an opinion, I’m not down with that…His boss said about [Del Rio], ‘He does have the right to voice his opinion as a citizen of the United States and it most certainly is his constitutional right to do so.’ Apparently not! You know what? This is the don’t pee on my shoe and tell me it’s raining. What the f**k are you talking about? He doesn’t have a right to an opinion and it’s obviously not his right to do so.
