Bill Maher hits Democrats with sobering reality check on why that promised 'blue wave' never happened

Democrats predicted that a "blue wave" would sweep over the nation in this month's elections, with Democrats winning the White House, Congress, and state legislatures nationwide.

But the blue tsunami never materialized, as Republicans made significant gains in the House, in state legislatures, and will likely retain their majority in the Senate. Plus, data show that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party made significant gains with all demographic groups — with the exception of white men.

Will Democrats learn from their mistakes? That remains to be seen. But on HBO's "Real Time" last week, host Bill Maher gave Democrats a sobering reality check, explaining why that blue wave never happened.

"Democrats were supposed to flip the Senate and didn't, supposed to flip state legislatures — not a one. And they lost seats in the House in a year," Maher explained. "Their share of minority votes went down. The message to Democrats from so much of the country seems to be we don't like Trump, but we still can't bring ourselves to vote for you."

He continued, "Liberals can either write off half the country as irredeemable or they can ask, 'What is it about a "D" next to a candidate's name that makes it so toxic?' Let's ask Ruben Gallego. He's a congressman from Arizona. He was asked how his Democrats could do a better job connecting to Latinos. He said first start by not using the term Latinx, which the vast majority of Latinos have never heard of, and when they do, don't like it. Who likes it? Pandering white politicians who mistake Twitter for real people."
