Bill Maher Defends Fired CNN Pundit Jeffrey Lord And His Nazi Salute

By Mike Walsh

Bill Maher, host of HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher, defended Jeffrey Lord's choice to tweet "Sieg Heil" at a member of Media Matters.

“I don’t know how long I’m going to last, really,” Maher told Fareed Zakaria, this morning on CNN. “It’s worse every year. The things that they go after people for now. Your colleague – I don’t agree with him – Jeffrey Lord, CNN got rid of him because he said sieg heil on a tweet. It was a joke."
