Bill Maher capped off his live comedy special "CrazyStupidPolitics: Live from Silicon Valley," which streamed on Yahoo, by announcing that he was making a $1 million donation to President Barack Obama’s Super PAC, Deadline.com reports. The announcement was made complete with the presentation of an oversize check.
The donation comes when Obama’s support from Hollywood has been declining, the article points out. Maher’s pledge was made to Priorities USA Action, Obama’s Super PAC, the piece adds.
Maher’s publicist told the publication that Maher said having Barack Obama in office, rather than any of the Republican candidates, is “worth a million dollars” and said “this is the wisest investment I think I could make,” the story reports.
