Nov. 14 (UPI) -- According to one cable host, the people of Boston should not only be thankful that their team won the World Series, they should also apparently be grateful that their city wasn’t leveled by a gigantic fictional reptile that usually torments the people of Tokyo.

Bill Maher welcomed Anthony Weiner to his HBO show on Friday, and the two got to talking about the moment during the Red Sox World Series parade when the team brought the championship trophy to the Boston Marathon finish line in an attempt to honor the victims of the marathon bombing.

Somehow, the Real Time host was able to find something negative to say about Sox players Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Jonny Gomes placing the trophy on the finish line and putting a "Boston Strong 617" jersey on the trophy while "God Bless America" was sung.

"I also saw, so the Red Sox won the World Series, congratulations Red Sox," Maher said. "So the parade, they go to the place where the marathon bombing took place, they put the World Series statue there and they sing God Bless America and they say 'Boston strong' and they chant 'USA,' you know. It was again, a bad day, three people died, that's terrible. More were maimed, that's horrible, but unfortunately that happens every day, in car accidents and everything else. I mean, your city was not leveled by Godzilla."

Somehow Weiner, the same "Carlos Danger" who has been the butt of more jokes than Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber combined over the last year, came out looking good.

"I don't know... such a nice moment, what's wrong with you?" Weiner replied.

He wasn't the only one asking that question.
