Hollywood actress Rose McGowan, who’s now known as the only legitimate member of the #MeToo movement given her lone willingness to call out Joe Biden, has revealed a shocking memory regarding left-wing comedian Bill Maher.
On Saturday, hours after Maher dismissed Biden’s accuser, the actress chose to “share” a memory of her first-time appearance on his 1990s talk show, “Politically Incorrect.” She shared the memory on Twitter via a direct message draft addressed directly to him.
“I was on your show Politically Incorrect in the late 90s — as the show returned from a commercial break, you leaned over to me & whispered in my ear, ‘my parents didn’t give me a good face, but they did give me a huge c—,’” she wrote.
“I could feel your hot breath on my ear as an image of both your hideous face & alleged big c— flashed in my mind. Both turned my stomach. I’ve always wondered what you say & do to the girls that aren’t famous?”
@BillMaher Here’s a memory I’d like to share with you. I bet you don’t remember, but I sure do. I was so excited to be on your show & get to flex my mind instead of my face. Here’s what happened. All I can say, Bill, you got the face you deserved. pic.twitter.com/RRIorKj258

Her followers didn’t seem surprised:
Bill was all about the Lolita express. Not surprised.

I’m honestly not surprised: Bill Maher is a complete asshole.

Thank you Rose. Not surprised but still totally grossed out and horrified. Just staring out the window & shaking my head

The timing of McGowan’s reveal suggests she decided to “share” the memory with the public specifically because of Maher’s decision to attack Biden’s accuser, Tara Reade.
Speaking Friday evening on HBO’s “Real Time” about Reade’s recently unveiled sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Biden, Maher blasted her for potentially affecting the outcome of the 2020 race.
“You waited 27 years — you think it couldn’t wait a few more months?” he said. “That’s what I’d like to ask Ms. Reade. Why now? I’m not saying why not 27 years ago. I understand it can take victims years to come forward.”
“I’m saying, why not before Super Tuesday? Why not last fall when we still had a dozen other candidates to choose from? Why wait until Biden is our only hope against Trump and then take him down?”
He also smeared Reade as a puppet of Russia.
“The New York Times is calling for the DNC to establish a truth panel on this. Truth panel, huh? Which part? Putin’s reverence for animals or how intoxicating he is to women?” he said, referencing favorable remarks Reade had allegedly once made about Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Believing everything doesn’t make you noble, it makes you gullible,” he continued. “And it leaves us with a world where Republicans don’t care about this stuff, so it’s just a unilateral weapon that is used only against Democrats. Trump rides the bus with Billy Bush, we throw Al Franken under it.”
He was being consistent, as he’d been one of a very few select left-wingers who kind of defended Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh from dubious allegations of sexual assault and rape during his confirmation hearings in late 2018.

The late-show host also threw some criticism at the Democrat Party.
“Democrats are coalescing around the position that this accusation must be thoroughly vetted for the party to keep its credibility. Well, you know credibility certainly is a problem for the party on this issue,” he said.
His point was that credibility wouldn’t be an issue for the party had it not chosen to smear Kavanaugh two years ago. But because of the decisions it made then, it’s imperative the party at least feign taking Reade’s allegations seriously. Of course, the party is failing even at this.
Last but not least, he said that if he’d been sexually assaulted by Biden, he’d have said nothing: “If in 1993 Joe Biden had grabbed my nuts in a corridor … and I had this knowledge, and revealing it could hurt the guy running against Trump, I’d save it for my memoirs.”
Listen to Maher’s full remarks below:
As of Sunday morning, only one additional tweet had been posted by McGowan.
“The Establishment has brought our society to where it is today. I am and have always been anti-establishment. It’s why I’m shadow banned on @twitter, @instagram and @Facebook I’m dangerous to because I want the exploitation of humans to stop,” she wrote.
Seeing the Democrat Party make excuses for, dismiss and/or just ignore the allegations against Reade has spurred a political awakening in her. In a poignant, emotional Twitter post uploaded late last month, she admitted that while she “used to be a proud Democrat,” she now views Democrats “more as a cult.”
“This is deeper than a cover-up. And I’m sad because there’s death around all corners & shadows in the daytime. It hurts,” she wrote in regard to the left’s hypocritical response to Reade’s allegations.
I’m really sad, and I’m really tired. I normally share thoughts, but tonight it’s emotion. pic.twitter.com/mhtaoW6dTd
