Bill Maher on George Zimmerman: "This Guy is a Big Fat F***ing Liar"

 So Bill Maher showed his guests the recently released footage of George Zimmerman at the police station after he murdered Trayvon Martin, which seems to dispute that Zimmerman's nose was broken, or that he was harmed in any way by Martin. And, as usual, Maher called it like he saw it: "Aren't we all convinced from that tape that this guy is a big fat fucking liar? Watch over at Mediaite. Van Jones, of, was one of his guests.

Meanwhile, last night Toure appeared on Piers Morgan to spar about Morgan's interview of Zimmerman's brother, which Toure called irresponsible on Twitter and escalated into a fight. Toure was right about his point—interviewing a man as an expert who admittedly hasn't spoken to his brother in quite some time is pretty disingenuous and, frankly, cynical viewer-bait. But then the whole thing devolved into a hot mess, and the truth was clear to anyone watching: this was about two egomaniacs trying to best one another, and they managed to make an issue about the murder of an unarmed 17-year-old by an adult... about them. Disgusting. Watch if you dare (again, it's a hot mess).
