Bill Maher addressed Amazon’s decision to cancel plans to build part of HQ2 in New York City on Friday night’s episode of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” During the show, Maher criticised Amazon for choosing Long Island City, Queens, and Crystal City, Virginia, as the sites for HQ2 in the first place – two already prosperous places, according to the comedian. Maher went on to claim that the “most affluent and educated” Americans live in “just a few cities” in the country, a problem Maher called “spatial geographic inequality.” Maher also claimed that Americans living in red states “want to be” those in “blue parts” of the country, where people are “having a big prosperity party.” On Twitter, some said Maher’s comments were “elitist” while others agreed with some of his points.
