Bill Maher told his live "Real Time" audience on Friday night that he didn't know why they're laughing given what a great week it's been for Republicans.

"Today is a day when Republicans got their two favorite things, a right-wing a**hole on the Supreme Court and Trump finally blowing some shit up," Maher said.

He pointed back to when 98 Republicans signed a letter saying that for Pres. Barack Obama to take action against Syria in response to a chemical attack on civilians would be unconstitutional.

"Obama was president then," he said, "and that would have involved 'bombing while black."
