Bill Maher Slams Media’s Fascination With Pope Francis On Real Time (VIDEO)

Bill Maher spent some good time slamming Pope Francis and media’s fascination with him on this week’s Real Time.

"I have just about had it with the press squealing in delight with everything the new pope does," said Maher. "He's a 76-year-old executive who just got a promotion. You act like he's a baby who just made a boom-boom."

The talk show host also said, "There are over a billion Catholics -- just on the back of my gardener's truck. So I get it that this is a legitimate news story. But can we at least stop saying that the job of pope is so hard?"

Daring Maher also compared his show to Catholic Church by saying, "The Catholic Church has basically always done what we do here at 'Real Time.' It's a bunch of guys sitting around making up new rules."

Watch the video above to see how Maher in his own unique way slammed Media’s fascination with the new pope.
