Bill Maher couldn’t resist taking a shot at two of President Donald Trump’s cabinet picks, which he nicknamed “ill-prepared vs. ill-equipped.”
“As Energy Secretary, Rick Perry goes head to empty head with Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos,” Maher said showing his bracket. He noted last week they had the “Swamp 16” but are now down to the “Hateful Eight.”
“DeVos never attended a public school, has never put her own children in a public and doesn’t support public education,” Maher began. “So, tapping her as Education Secretary is kind of like making Ellen [DeGeneres] the Secretary of D*ck.”
Maher went on to mock Perry showing him dancing on the reality TV show “Dancing with the Stars.”
Watch the rest of Maher’s brutal smackdowns of the two nominees below:
‘This is a lie’: Lisa Page pummels Trump for telling blatant falsehoods about her at crazed rally
Former FBI attorney Lisa Page on Wednesday called out President Donald Trump for once again lying about her at one of his political rallies.
On Tuesday night, Trump told supporters in Pennsylvania that Page supposedly had to file a restraining order against former FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she'd had a relationship during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump hedged his claim by telling his supporters, "That's what I heard, I don't know if it's true."
Page, however, took to Twitter to shred the president for repeating a blatant falsehood.
"This is a lie," she wrote. "Nothing like this ever happened. I wish we had a president who knew how to act like one."
Trump busted for lying about NATO in days-late response to world leaders mocking him
President Donald Trump responded to a week-old tweet from a Fox Business personality about Canada's prime minister and other world leaders mocking him, and spouted misleading claims about NATO allies.
The president falsely claimed in his response to Charles Payne that Justin Trudeau, along with French president Emmanuel Macron and British prime minister Boris Johnson, were actually angry and not laughing about his bizarre news conference at the NATO summit.
"They were just upset that I demanded they pay their fair share for NATO," Trump claimed, four days after Payne's tweet. "Their countries are delinquent. I raised $530 Billion more from NATO countries! Thank you Charles."
Trump forced to pay up after his charity is exposed as a sham
Donald Trump on Tuesday paid $2 million in damages as part of a settlement over use of his former charity to further his political and business interests -- the latest item on the US president's list of legal woes.
Trump had been accused of using foundation funds to settle lawsuits, promote his Trump-branded hotels, and for personal spending, including the purchase of a portrait of himself to display at one of his golf clubs.
The $2 million was paid equally to eight different charities, including the Children's Aid Society, the United Negro College Fund and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, according to a statement from New York Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat.
