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?'”

Rod Rosenstein’s legal defense in lawsuits from Strzok and Page won’t hold up under oath: legal experts
Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein claimed responsibility for the release of text messages between then-FBI attorney Lisa Page and then-FBI official Peter Strzok.
Emails released in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) revealed the highly unusual release by Sarah Isgur Flores, who at the time was the spokesperson for Trump's Department of Justice (she is now overseeing CNN's 2020 election coverage).
Flores instructed reporters to not cite the release of the documents to the Depart of Justice.
Neo-Nazi arrested by FBI in terror plot before his comrades tried to kill him for being ‘stupid’ and ‘incompetent’: report
On Saturday, CBC News reported that several members of a white supremacist group called The Base have been arrested in Georgia and Wisconsin. This comes one day after another set of raids in Maryland and Delaware that caught Patrik Mathews, a former reservist from Manitoba who crossed into the United States illegally and has been missing for five months after being accused of recruiting for the extremist group.
One new key detail came out about Mathews in an affidavit used to secure the arrest warrants for Mathews' alleged compatriots, according to the CBC: "Although the document suggests the group member believed to be Mathews stayed with a Georgia cell member for months, he is later reportedly characterized as 'incompetent' and 'stupid' and is seen as a liability to the local group. In fact, he eventually becomes a new potential murder target."
