Flanagan agreed. "What you cannot do is rewrite curriculum and pull kids out by race." "Of course you can teach it," she said.
Because of the pipeline backups and product shortages, “This year I’m trying to get kids to put toilet paper on my house,” Maher joked.
Sounding the theme that the nation needs to come together, Maher acknowledged there are disagreements between conservatives and liberals. But he still chided Spicer for his obstinance on certain points, like whether Biden’s “Build Back Better” is a solid financial program that will ultimately be largely beneficial to the country.
Maher noted, “You have your book over your nuts. Spicer was prepared for a hostile interview from the start, as his body language gave away. Maher also found it strange that former Trump press secretary and Radical Nation author Sean Spicer wouldn’t agree with him on whether the 2020 election was stolen. Don’t worry, this is not a hostile interview.”
"We shouldn’t be losing his job, the guy who saves lives." Maher said when he saw people walking outside by themselves with a mask, he thinks it's "so stupid. It's an amulet, to ward away evil spirits." Flanagan also came down hard on the vaccine mandates that may cost some people their jobs by refusing a shot.
It’s Orewellian, and Orwell never ends well."” /> "When I reported the statistic that 78 percent of Covid cases were overweight, that's not fat shaming, it's fat 'splainin'," Maher said.

Spicer, of course, disagreed, asking how we can spend $3.5 trillion and not know what we’re spending it on, as is the case in an 1800-page bill.
"We have to define what CRT means," he said.
Chris Coons. Moving on to the panel discussion, Maher was largely in agreement with Atlantic staff writer and author Caitlin Flanagan and Delaware Democratic Sen.
"It was just such a stupid thing to say (by McAuliffe)." "There's nothing more incendiary" than parents watching teachers instruct students in things they don't want them to teach, Flanagan, herself a former teacher, said.
Maher was "for it" if Toni Morrison was taught, less so if it means telling 5-year-olds that they are oppressors. The discussion briefly veered toward teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT) in schools.
To wrap his show, Maher attacked the way words with clear parameters have suddenly expanded their reach. The notion of who's a hero also bothered him.
