During a segment of his show on Friday night, Maher said, “No matter which side wins on Tuesday, let’s skip the civil war and go right to reconciliation.”
He noted that 44% of voters believe there is a civil war coming in the next five years and he would “like to remind them of one thing: America is a family and the definition of family is people who hate each other without resorting to violence.”
“We have to see each other not as mortal enemies but rather merely as roommates from hell. If we want to simply exist, we’re going to have to find a way to work together… So let’s not have a civil war with the Trumpers. We’re no good at war and they’re no good at being civil.”

Maher declared that “neither side,” is going anywhere. He then joked about celebrities who threaten they will leave the country if one candidate wins the election but they “never do.”
He then added, “Take it from someone who has traveled this country my whole life: There are no red states or blue states. They’re all like Mitch McConnell’s hands — some shade of purple.”
“We can’t have a second Civil War because the two sides aren’t neatly separated anymore. The Mason-Dixon line would cut through states, cities, streets, even bedrooms,” he said, before pointing to former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and her husband George Conway.
There are three days until Election Day on Nov. 3. As of the end of the week, there were over 85 million Americans who voted early so far, exceeding the early voting turnout in the 2016 presidential election.
