HBO liberal shock jock Bill Maher has COVID-19. HBO announced on Thursday that the taping of his show for today has been canceled after Maher tested positive after taking a PCR COVID-19 test.
“He is fully vaccinated and as a result is asymptomatic and feels fine,” the show staff said in a message today. “Real Time production has taken every precaution following COVID-19 CDC guidelines. No other staff or crew members have tested positive at this time. The show will be rescheduled at a later date.”
Maher said his fans have been wishing him well, but he says, don’t worry, he feels absolutely fine.
“Thanks to all wishing me get well — hard to do since I feel perfectly fine, but I appreciate it!” Maher tweeted. “Most upset about ending my streak going back to 1993 of never missing a Politically Incorrect or Real Time episode. Oh well, even Cal Ripken had to sit one out at some point.”
