[TV] Bill Maher on French-American relationships

http://www.metroactive.com/papers/cruz/04.06.05/gifs/maher-0514.jpg

Bill Maher is an American "Politically Incorrect" comedian. Conservatives might not enjoy his sense of humour but I must admit that he usually makes some good points.

Since I'm French and I'm having some difficulties to be taken seriously with my FRENCH game wink, I found this really funny and interesting :

Not because he criticizes American "things" but because he shows that one can learn from another. Let's face it, anti-Frenchism is pretty well alive in America  as well as anti-Americanism is in France.

I always stand against anti-Americanism in my country, people sometimes tend to have etnic and cultural stereotypes... Many French people think that an American is ALWAYS a fat dumb conservative that know shit about anything outside the US.

Hopefully, this is not always the case. Let's show each other some transatlantic love ! wink

I'm American and I found this to be quite funny. tongue


Edit: Just finished watching the vid where he is talking about France and I have to say, I did laugh a bit and he did make some pretty good points in there.
