On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher predicted that Republicans will run on “the wall and the womb.” He added that it’s dangerous to forget that a lot of people vote on those issues. Maher said, “So, when I was watching the State of the Union speech, I saw language used about abortion that I’ve never seen a president use, especially in that setting. … It seems to me like this is the issue that the Republicans are going to run on, the wall and the womb. That’s what they care about. And we all, I think, at our peril forget that a lot of this country votes on that one issue. They don’t follow politics as closely as the rest of us do on a political junkie show like this, that’s the issue they care about.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says the Republican Party is “just at the point of extinction without a shot” due to mass illegal and legal immigration to the country that continues importing more than 1.5 million immigrants a year.
