    According to Bill Maher....


    So is he right?

I am really not a fan of the guy, so not sure if he was just being a smart alec or not with this one. If he is, than it is akin to the argument that video games turn people into more violent people and so on. Bad logic.

There are numerous reasons why Trump won. And most of them break down to the fact that apparently more people in strategic locations thought that he was the guy they wanted to go with. Simple as that. The reasons seem to be variable and the margins were thin. Clinton was never able to win over enough overall support in various states, neither candidate polled great but she had national leads that proved accurate for the most part. The state data was more questionable in a few swing states.

But, superheroes and the movies have zero to do with it. People in general can be pretty dumb but I do not think it is that. Movies often reflect public mood. Maybe the comic movies and trends in nolstalgia are more escapism than anything as the world is so negative, but I always think Mahr is a pompus jerk. Or comes off that way.

Look Raist bunnies...
