Can you imagine Walters giving this kind of benefit of the doubt to a conservative? Neither Walters nor I heard Maher say what he said, so we can only speculate on what his intent was. So, Walters believes that Maher, in referring to the son of a woman he reviles meant "retarded" in the best possible way? As Whoopie tries to bring up, in what context did he even bring up Trig?
This isn't the first time Walters has made an ass of herself and even as her time in the public light grows short, I'm guessing it won't be the last.
