Bill Maher To Democrats: Stand Your Ground, Stop Being Wimps And Embrace Jimmy Carter

Bill Maher closed Friday's episode of "Real Time" by giving Democrats a rhetorical kick in the ass.

With the midterms coming up later this year, Maher insisted that Dems need to let the American people know what they actually stand for and to start honoring their achievements — particularly with Obamacare — rather than cowering and apologizing.

He also excoriated them for accepting the Republican narrative about former President Jimmy Carter: "Carter was branded a wimp, but the real wimps are the Democrats who never had his back for the achievement of never firing a shot while in office and the courage of being the last president to ask Americans to sacrifice."
