Maher ended with New Rules’ jabs at pandemic inequality, the gig economy — and the nation’s obsession with families when the share of single Americans has doubled over the past 50 years. For Maher, even Mitt Romney’s possible near death experience at the Capitol last month didn’t excuse his paean just last week to a “renewed commitment to American families,” where he repeated the words America families a dozen times. “Shut the f-uck up! Do politicians ever get how insulting this is to such a large swath of people?” asked Maher. “You like kids and family? Great. You do you. But for millions of others, getting a good night’s sleep, not sharing the remote, or changing dirty diapers, never having to have a relationship talk or listen a passive-aggressive sigh. Priceless.”
