During his opening monologue on Friday night’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Maher assailed Pres. Donald Trump’s budget for its short-sightedness and the president himself for clinging to the unsubstantiated story that former Pres. Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Towers in the weeks ahead of the 2016 election.
This week the Trump administration cut funding for Meals on Wheels, Public Broadcasting and other agencies serving children, elderly people and the poor.
“President Crazypants,” Maher said, “based on nothing,” accused Obama of tapping his phones.
He’s clung to that story in spite of the fact that he’s been able to produce no evidence to support it and even Fox News is walking away from its own talking head Andrew Napolitano’s statements on the matter.
Finally, Maher said, we’ve found something Trump is uniquely qualified for.
“That’s the great thing about tiny hands. It makes it easier for you to pull stuff right out of your a**,” he quipped.
What is Trump going to have to do, Maher asked Republicans, before they’ll finally put on the brakes. Does he have to strip naked and roll around on the White House lawn eating grass and yelling, “Vroom! Vroom! I’m a lawnmower?'”
