Bill Maher began Friday’s show saying that each week is like another episode of “He did what?!”
“Our president picked a fight with a lot of people this wee,” Maher said. “Our president has shown a lot of balls standing up to Australia.”
Trump has threatened to invade Iran, Chicago and Mexico. Maher thinks Trump’s only hope is to have penis enlargement surgery.
Given this month is Black History Month, Maher said Trump gathered everyone he knew that was a person of color so he could talk about himself. He said it was like a kid showing off his Pokemon cards.
“This is Omarosa, her special power is sass!” Maher joked. “It was billed as a listening session and he did all the talking. All about himself and the election and how unfair the news coverage has been. Only Trump could take the occasion of Black History Month and make it about how he’s oppressed.”
When it came to Trump’s mention of Frederick Douglass. “Where are ya, Freddie? Stand up,” Maher said doing a Trump impression. He joked that someone had to whisper to Trump that Douglass was dead. “And Trump said, ‘Oh no! Gang violence?'”

Veteran ex-Trump supporter: ‘Real veterans who remember their oath will support impeachment’
In an op-ed published in The Times of Israel this Wednesday, an Army veteran who has since renounced his support of President Trump accused the President of being "unpatriotic."
According to David Weisman, "real veterans who remember their oath will support impeachment."
"When I first got into politics, as I have mentioned numerous times, I thought the Republican Party was the party of upholding the Constitution and ethical principles," Wesiman writes. "I took the word of pundits thinking Republicans stood for truth, justice, and the American way. I never questioned their integrity when they condemned President Obama. Why? Because they were religious and it didn’t occur to me they would lie. Years later, if you are aware of my story, I learned that most of the demonizing of President Obama was propaganda. I’ve also learned to read the fine print of the Constitution because there’s more involved than just the right of free speech and the right to bear arms. Lots of nuance to acknowledge."
WATCH: Trump whines to Turkish president he only takes questions from ‘friendly reporters’
In a press conference Wednesday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, President Donald Trump openly reminded that he only takes questions from people on his side.
"Would you like to pick somebody?" Trump asked Erdo?an after taking a question from the far-right OANN. "A friendly person from Turkey, please. Friendly. Only friendly reporters. There aren’t too many of them around."
Trump has increasingly refused to take questions from reporters who ask him actual questions that he both knows the answer to and will make him look good.
The White House hasn't hosted a "daily press briefing" for 247 days and not at all under the new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham. She has, however, had time to appear on Fox News multiple times to speak for the White House.
Fox legal analyst: Today was a good day for anyone who wants to shorten the Trump presidency
As the first public hearings in the House impeachment inquiry against President Trump wrapped up this Wednesday, former assistant US attorney and Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy said that he originally expected Republicans' "best pitch" to be that the Democrats' impeachment inquiry hasn't demonstrated anything impeachable.
"Instead what they've tried to do is go at this by saying, 'Nothing bad happened, it was perfect,'" McCarthy said, adding that the latter tactic will open them up to an "itemization of a number of irregularities that happened and a lot of very admirable and articulate government witnesses getting on the witness stand to say, 'This shouldn't have happened, that shouldn't have happened, this is a departure from American interests, a departure from American norms.'"
