Bill Maher Defends Six Pack-Flashing "Jersey Shore" Star? When Millionaires (Hilariously) Have Each Others' Backs

 Bill Maher! When he's on, he's on. Saturday night, questioning why Americans vote against their own economic interests (i.e. Joe the Plumber rooting for Donald Trump), he said he came to the realization that's exactly what he's doing. "I'm a millionaire! Fuck yeah!" he said, before jokingly declaring his fealty to Mitt Romney by donning a cap emblazoned with the slogan, "Mitt's the Shit."

Funnier, though, was his defense of Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorentino, who apparently made $5 million last year getting drunk and having one night stands and, of course, would not be able to provide as many jobs if his tax bracket is raised. "If he has to pay a little more in taxes," said Maher, "it will mean a tiny fraction of his money actually pays the government that works to keep him alive." TOUCHE.
