    Published on

    The fact that Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera fined Jack Del Rio did not impress Bill Maher.

    The defensive coordinator of the Commanders was fined when he referred to the disturbance at the Capitol on January 6 as a “dust up” and questioned why the riots that rocked America in 2020 elicited less indignation.

    Del Rio was fined $100,000 by head coach Ron Rivera for his remarks because, for reasons that are unclear to any sane person, his opinion was evidently deemed unacceptable.

    During the Friday broadcast of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the popular comedian and host criticized the Commanders for appearing to care about free speech while fining individuals for expressing their ideas.

    Maher stated the following regarding the situation in Del Rio:
