Host Bill Maher began Friday night’s episode of Real Time by ticking off a list of all the “Arabs” the Obama administration has targeted and killed in 2011.

“So far this year he’s killed Somali pirates, he killed Bin Laden, he killed al-Awlaki, now he’s killed Gadaffi. Our only threat to our way of life now is from Bank of America,” Maher said.

Maher continued his opening monologue by poking fun at conservatives who’ve refused to give the president credit for these “victories.”

“They’re like the banks. They will not give a black man credit. In their world, Gaddafi died of natural causes. Bin Laden was shot in the face by the free market.”
