Actor Woody Harrelson joined Bill Maher on his “Club Random” podcast Sunday, where the pair got high as kites and shredded “Big Government” and “Big Pharma.”
Maher and Harrelson shared a “clove cigarette” — as they chatted on the podcast. Maher made a couple of jokes about them both “getting high.” Maybe that’s why everything was fair game, with Harrelson calling out Dr. Anthony Fauci and other health officials for not telling people to eat healthy foods in order to have healthy bodies.
They also slammed the Sackler family, Big Pharma’s relationship to the opioid crisis, and the COVID-19 vaccines, which led Harrelson to tell Maher that “most Americans would not normally trust the government with helping them.”
“Like, what does the government actually do to help you? They help big corporations, industry,” Harrelson added.
Maher cited a poll that indicates that Americans don’t trust the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Okay, so here’s the CDC promoting that we have to do all of these things, right? I just, I don’t like profiteering in war, you know? Here’s the billions of dollars that have gone to Big Pharma,” Harrelson continued. “The last people I would trust with my health is Big Pharma and Big Government, because neither one of those strike me as caring entities.”
Maher called his friend a “redneck hippie,” in response to his statements, but for the most part he agreed with every point Harrelson made.
