Heartwarming: Real Time with Bill Maher

  • October 4, 2013: In the New Rule "Slob Rule", Bill criticizes what he calls America's "Slob Culture", where Americans have become too casual or indifferent about their personal appearance and and how it's affecting our self-esteem. He then cites the "Broken Windows theory" by discussing how New York City gradually stopped being The Big Rotten Apple because of numerous improvements to itself in The '90s. He tells the audience "Don't be a broken window."
  • November 22, 2013: For the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination, Bill uses the New Rule "Myth America" to ponder whether John F. Kennedy or Ronald Reagan was much cooler, with him picking JFK. During the monologue, Bill talks about his father, who was similar to JFK, and how both influenced his political views.
    • And on the other side of the coin, he admits that he understands why conservatives like Reagan so much, as he was their Kennedy. While he thinks JFK and his era was a lot cooler than Reagan's, it's still a really nice thing to say.
