Bill Maher kicked off Friday’s Real Time by rolling through all the latest crazy Trump news. “Tomorrow is April Fools Day, a day when we fool people by telling an outrageous lie, or as Trump calls it, tweeting,” Maher said.
“He can try to tweet his way out of this Russia story, but this shit ain’t going away,” he said of the most recent scandal news. Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn this week said he would testify against Trump in exchange for immunity. “This is the guy who led the chant at the convention—’Lock her up—and he also said anyone asking for immunity is probably guilty,” Maher said, adding, “If you think Hillary’s a bitch, try karma.”
Bill Maher then reacted to the latest executive order rolling back Obama’s climate protections in support of coal. “You can’t even say ‘climate change’ anymore around the White House,” he said. “What the f—k is it with Trump and coal miners? Do they have a video of him getting pissed on?”
“When Obama was channeling money and funds to green energy companies, Republicans were always saying, ‘Oh, he’s picking winners.’ At least he was picking winners from the future!” Maher remarked. “It’s like saying, ‘We gotta get those Blockbuster Video clerks back to work!'”
