Maher Urges Biden to Ditch Kamala Harris in Favor of Nikki Haley

( – Bill Maher is urging President Joe Biden to change his running mate from Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris to Republican former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

The host of HBO’s “Real Time” made the suggestion after Haley dropped out of the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, leaving former President Donald Trump to be the presumptive nominee.

Maher called it his “dream,” adding that it would be “a unity ticket,” which he thinks would “definitely win.”

He stated that he believes Haley has no future in the Republican Party. He added that while Haley “said some crazy things,” she has not said anything crazier than most politicians say.

Maher said picking a Republican as his running mate would “reach across” the political aisle to help unify the country and show that the other side is not an “existential threat.”

Haley was not the only name Maher suggested Biden could add as a running mate if he dropped Harris. He also suggested Utah Sen. Mitt Romney.

When Biden announced his run for reelection in April 2023, he said Harris would remain his vice president.

This is not the only advice Maher has offered Biden. In February, he suggested Biden drop out of the race during the Democratic National Convention. In making the suggestion, he noted Biden described himself during his 2020 campaign as a “bridge” for the Democratic Party, which Maher stated he thought meant Biden saw himself as a one-term president.

Maher has also stated that “nobody’s buying” the idea that Biden is “sharper than ever,” and that Biden should use his age to his advantage. At 81, Biden is the oldest sitting president in the history of the country. Concern has grown among voters about his mental capabilities and his age, as he would be 86 at the end of a second term if re-elected in November.

According to Joe Cunningham, the founding chairman and national political director of No Labels, the third party would “definitely be interested in” recruiting Haley as its candidate.
