Bill Maher says San Francisco clean-up for Chinese president points to Trump winning

"Real Time" host Bill Maher said that the clean-up of San Francisco for Chinese President Xi Jinping points to former President Donald Trump winning in 2024.

Maher shared his controversial comments during a panel discussion on Friday following the Chinese president's visit with President Joe Biden.

The comments

"And they did something very interesting in San Francisco. I mean, I have done many, many jokes as many comedians have about stepping and poop in San Francisco and, you know, it's a city that needs to be put under control — so they did! Because Xi was coming! Put aside the fact that you only clean up with company coming over?" Maher argued. "OK, so they cleaned it up, they rinse off the street, the homeless, you know, God forbid the guy who sends us the fentanyl sees somebody on fentanyl."

"This, to me, is why Trump is winning, because he talks about, 'I'm going to open up the mental hospitals,'" Maher continued.

Newsom criticized

"Given the city’s soaring crime and the exodus of businesses from the downtown area, California Governor Gavin Newsom was blasted on X after admitting that the transformation was done just for Xi’s benefit," BizPac Review reported.

“I know folks are saying, ‘Oh, they’re just cleaning up this place because all those fancy leaders are coming to town,'” Newsom said during a press conference. “That’s true, because it’s true.”

Major clean-up issues

"Over 3,000 encampments were cleared as part of the initiative, however, not everyone was thrilled. As the Daily Mail reported, the city offered to take homeless people to shelters in the area but many refused," the Post Millennial reported.

"We've got nowhere to go and they're trying to push us to areas we don't want to go," one man told the outlet, adding, "We've got nowhere to go and they're trying to push us to areas we don't want to go."

The situation adds to controversy over San Francisco's crime and larger government problems under Newsom's leadership in California.

The meeting also shows Biden's close connections with China that have come under scrutiny for many reasons, including allegations of his son's business deals in the country.

The latest meeting is not a good look for Biden, helping point out his weaknesses while giving more credibility to Trump.
