Bill Maher On North Carolina Going 'Ape Sh*t' & Why Rich Liberals Like Jay-Z Should Start Buying States (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Bill Maher devoted his final "new rule" rant to the insanity going on in North Carolina, a state that had been trending blue until a certain wealthy conservative moved the ball in the other direction.

And what's that agenda? Just your garden variety anti-woman, anti-voting rights, anti-union buffet. As Maher explained, "Take every crazy, angry idea your drunk right-wing uncle mumbles at Thanksgiving, turn it into a law and that's North Carolina today."

But if one rich conservative can bend an entire state to his will, Maher suggested fighting fire with fire. "Come on rich liberals, pony up!"

He then basically put Jay-Z on the spot as being the perfect person to buy the state. "If there's anyone out there who's done it all and is looking for some new thing to brag about, own a state, it's my fate, it's great... I'm just saying the rhymes practically write themselves."

Watch the clip above and let us know what you think. Do we need an "Oprahoma"?
