On Friday night, amid concerns over the transphobic anatomy “jokes” in the new Dave Chappelle of Netflix special The Pedyo, broadcaster Bill Maher has volunteered to launch the latest episode of his HBO overnight program Real Time with a jab on transgender people.
“There’s a new James Bond movie out there, finally,” he offered Maher during his monologue. “Even if it’s controversial, you know, because he has to keep up with the times. And they’ve added along with the season right now with James Bond. He still has sex with three beautiful women – but the two of them have a penis. ”

[Donald] Trump… There is no place for retail items in the Armageddon election… Let’s not die on this hill. ”
The big question is: Why are these older men – 48-year-old Chappelle and 65-year-old Maher – so prepared for transgender people?
