Bill Maher and writer Sam Harris got into a heated discussion about Islam with actor Ben Affleck.

“You and I have been trying to make the case that liberals need to stand up for liberal principles,” Maher said to fellow panelist, author Sam Harris.

“Freedom of speech, freedom to practice any religion you want without fear of violence, freedom to leave a religion, equality for women, equality for minorities, including homosexuals, these are liberal principles that liberals applaud for,” Maher continued, “but then when you say in the Muslim world this is what’s lacking, then they get upset.”

“Liberals have failed us,” Harris added.

Today on Meet the Press, Joe Scarborough neatly summed up why Americans remain doubtful about official reassurances regarding Ebola:

“Meet The Press” panelist Joe Scarborough slammed the White House Sunday, saying simply that no one believes them regarding the recent Ebola scare after a man in Dallas was diagnosed with the virus.

“Right now a lot of Americans are seeing what happened in Dallas and looking at the laundry list, with what happened Secret Service, with the IRS, with the VA, with ISIS being A JV team,” Scarborough said.

“So when any member of the government says relax, everything’s gonna be okay, Americans don’t believe that,” added the “Morning Joe” co-host.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell piled on, hammering the Dallas hospital for letting the man walk out of the hospital initially and blaming it on a computer system.

“This was after we were being told by the government, but the CDC, by the White House that doctors and hospitals around the country were prepared,” said Mitchell.
