Even Bill Maher is feeling the sting of California's new income tax rates.

“Liberals,” he said on a recent broadcast, "you could actually lose me.”

He made the comments during a panel discussion of U.S. budget policy that included MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, who blasted Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposal.

“The Ryan budget is a document that says the big problems in American right now are that rich people do not have enough money," said Maddow.

Maher responded, somewhat uncharacteristically: “You know what? Rich people - I’m sure you’d agree with this - do pay the freight in this country.”

Wayne Brady is known as a nice guy, but a recent comment by Bill Maher about President Barack Obama does not have him feeling like one at the moment.

Speaking to Aisha Tyler on her podcast, Girl on Guy, he took issue with fellow comedian Maher for referring to President Obama as "your Wayne Brady."

He also slammed Maher for his reputed "preference for black women."

"That means it's a diss to Obama to be called me because he wants a brother brother," he said. "Just because you f*%k black hookers, just because you had that particular black experience ... I have to stop myself from getting into it."

"I realize if I had gone on his show, or even doing it online, I'm not going to win. As soon as you back off, he still has his platform to say whatever he wants to."

But he didn't back off just yet.

Brady said to prove "how black Wayne Brady is," he would "gladly slap the shit out of Bill Maher in front of Coco and Ebony and Fox, three ladies of the night he has hired."

Your move, Bill.

Comedian Bill Maher announced during a comedy special Thursday night that he would donate $1 million to the pro-Obama Priorities USA Action Super PAC.

The host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher dropped the (money) bomb at the end of "CrazyStupidPolitics," streamed live on Yahoo. He said the following:

"I would like tonight to announce a donation to the Obama super PAC, which has the very unfortunate tongue-twister name Priority [sic] USA Action."

"I know, it was named by Borat," Maher said. "But tonight, I would like to give that PAC one million dollars," prompting cheers from the audience.

The donation, manifested onstage in the form of one of those oversized checks, provides a significant boost to the pro-Obama Super PAC's coffers.

The group raised less than $59,000 in the month of January and $4.4 million overall ... not even that much more than the Colbert Super PAC really.

Super PACs can raise unlimited amounts of cash to support political causes, but are not permitted to coordinate their activities with candidates they favor.

Bill Maher said that a 2012 Obama victory was "worth a million dollars" and described the donation as  "the wisest investment I think I could make."

He encouraged other wealthy donors to give to the group as well.
