Bill Maher recapped the week in Trump news during his monologue on Friday’s Real Time. This week, Maher riffed on Trump’s speech to Congress and recent news more of his administration has ties to Russia.
On Wednesday night, news broke that a “thousand-year-old cracker named Jeff Sessions,” now attorney general, spoke with Russian ambassadors during the Trump campaign.
“Is there anyone that doesn’t talk to the Russians?” Maher asked, referring to the numerous members of Trump’s team who have been caught lying about their relationship to the country. “It’s like six degrees of Kevin Putin.”
Maher then went on to roast the media for lauding Trump after his speech to Congress, saying that his “presidential” tone was nothing to write home about. “He read words off a teleprompter in front of adults,” said Maher. “The same thing the Olsen twins did at seven.”
