Maher Thanks NYT Op-Ed Writer

HBO’s Bill Maher’s message for the anonymous New York Times op-ed writer was “thank you for your service.”

After expressing his belief that Chief of Staff John Kelly wrote the op-ed, Maher said, “[M]y outlier opinion on this, is this person, I would like to say to them, thank you for your service. I –seriously, let me explain why, the United States has made the same mistake overseas so many times. We take out Saddam Hussein or somebody we don’t like and not think about what comes next.
