He added, “[I]f Putin thought Trump was really that supportive of him, why didn’t he invade when Trump was in office? It’s at least worth asking that question if you’re not locked into one, intransigent thought.”
Maher also criticized former President Donald Trump for saying the invasion was about the “rigged” 2020 election and attempts to bring issues like race, American self-loathing, LGBTQ rights, and cancel culture into the discussion on Ukraine.
Maher concluded, “Ukraine is not mostly about your pet grievances. It’s about Vladimir Putin’s, and Putin is bad, very, very, very bad.”
