"Real Time" host Bill Maher issued a challenge to Rep ] Maher's challenge came just days after the congresswoman suggested viewers wanted to stop watching his HBO talk show over the host's recent comments about the Boycott effort, known as the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Last week , Maher blasted BDS, calling it "bulls — purity test by people who want to appear 'woke' but actually slept through history class." That did not sit well with Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American to serve in Congress.
"Maybe folks should boycott his show," Tlaibre on Twitter. It's just like they tried to discredit and stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in South Africa will not now. "

Maher shot back, tweeting," Some people have one move only: boycott Make-go-away: But here's the thing, 318 to 17 to condemn the #BDS movement, including 93% of Dems. "Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party?"
Maher mentioned the boycott Tlaib suggested during the panel discussion of Friday's show, in which he and his guests debated what Maher described as emerging "boycott culture."
"We've invited her onto this show, I hope she comes," Maher said , "But you know, if you come on this show, then you actually have to defend your point as opposed to this one go-to that so many people have to go today, which is just go away then you do not have to Just go away, boycott, you're bad, too good to talk to and I'm too good to talk to you.
