Bill Maher has been doing his show Real Time with Bill Maher for a very long time, unfortunately he’s going to have to miss an episode or two. Bill Maher has tested positive for Covid-19, forcing HBO to scrap Friday’s scheduled taping of this week’s episode. Bill took to Twitter to explain himself, and apparently he hasn’t missed a taping of an episode since 1993.

Bill even went as far as comparing himself to legendary MLB ironman Cal Ripken.
Thanks to all wishing me get well – hard to do since I feel perfectly fine, but I appreciate it! Most upset about ending my streak going back to 1993 of never missing a Politically Incorrect or Real Time episode. Oh well, even Cal Ripken had to sit one out at some point.

Fans were quick to shred Maher for comparing himself to a living legend.
I wouldn't compare you to Cal Ripken at all, maybe Billy Ripken's bat, but even that is a stretch pic.twitter.com/oCvMtnyMLN

In this metaphor, Cal Ripken boots the ball every time it's hit to him and then says both teams are equally to blame for the errors. https://t.co/RlbaiUUwIH

Don’t do that, Cal Ripken was actually good at his profession https://t.co/IY8iZD40Xd

Cal Ripken was above average though. https://t.co/wmw9zsIHke

You simply can’t go around comparing yourself to one of the all time greats with out any sort of backlash.
No one, and I mean no one considers Bill Maher an Ironman, or a legend for that matter.
