VIDEO: Bill Maher Urges Viewers to Steer Clear of Celebrity Presidential Candidates
Bill Maher had an important message for his viewers during last night's show: avoid the celebrity candidates for president.
He noted that there may be a temptation, as names get thrown around such as Oprah Winfrey and The Rock.
"But when the prime directive for government," he said, "goes from 'keep us safe' to 'keep us entertained,' that's bread and circuses, end of the EMPIRE stuff."
