Bill Maher Has Absolutely No Time For The 'Pokemon Go' Craze

"It’s just plain stupid, no matter how old you are."

Pokemon Go” may have swept the globe in recent days. But Bill Maher is clearly not a fan.

“What the fuck is this?” he asked about the mobile augmented reality game during his monologue on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday.

“It’s not just that I’m old, it’s just plain stupid, no matter how old you are.”

The comedian said the game has been downloaded more times in a week than Tinder has in four years. It’s clear, he quipped, that Americans would rather catch Pokemon than have sex. “How sick is that?”

After highlighting concerns surrounding the app’s privacy settings, Maher admitted that he did understand at least part of its appeal. “I think people are just happy to be catching something with their cell phone which is not police brutality.”
