Bill Maher: If you’re trying to kill elephants and an elephant kills you instead… ‘good’

On this week’s Real Time on HBO, host Bill Maher may have ruffled a few feathers when he expressed amusement that an big game hunter was killed by the elephant he was hunting.

On this week’s Real Time on HBO, host Bill Maher may have ruffled a few feathers when he expressed amusement that an big game hunter was killed by the elephant he was hunting.

Maher was speaking about Ian Gibson, who was trampled to death last week by an elephant he hoped to take home as a trophy.

“If you make your living stalking and killing innocent animals, as professional game hunter Ian Gibson did, and you’re leading a safari to kill elephants, as Ian Gibson was, and during that safari an elephant tramples you to death… good.”

Harsh, but I can’t say I entirely disagree.

    i agree with mr Mahler,,killing shouldn’t go unpunished..why cant those who enjoy killing also enjoy their own death then!?

    Disagree. We shouldn’t be celebrating someone else’s death no matter the circumstance.

    The point that is missed is that EVERY living thing has the RIGHT to self-defense, just like the elephant. If you try to kill something and it kills you, well that’s nature. So why is Mahr so against people having guns for self-defense?

    Because the majority of people that have guns don’t have them for “self-defense”, they have them because they’re ammosexuals and want to stick it to Obama or whatever politician proposes the crazy idea that MAYBE you should pass a background check to have one.
