Comedian Bill Maher was in rare form on Friday when he blasted President Donald Trump and the House Republicans for their health care bill. Maher said that the House essentially left it up to the states to “be the bad guys” and deny Americans coverage.
Somehow, the tea party members managed to get “moderate Republicans” on board with Trumpcare. “Moderate Republicans,” Maher said are those who merely “dabble a little in killing people.”
Talking about the premature celebration in the White House Rose Garden, Maher said that it was like a Cinco de Mayo celebration. “Trump got carried away and grabbed a p*ssy,” Maher said. “It was Paul Ryan.”
People aren’t asking why there was a ‘Civil War’ they’re asking why there’s still an electoral college,” Maher said. “And if you’re asking why there was a Civil War ask your supporters they reenact it every weekend.”

On Wednesday, U.S. Women's Soccer champion Ali Krieger rebuked President Donald Trump for his attacks on her teammate Megan Rapinoe, saying that the president feels threatened by women that he "cannot control or grope":
In regards to the “President’s” tweet today, I know women who you cannot control or grope anger you, but I stand by @mPinoe & will sit this one out as well. I don’t support this administration nor their fight against LGBTQ+ citizens, immigrants & our most vulnerable.
Bernie Sanders: ‘I intend to be the Democratic nominee’
Bernie Sanders intends to be the 2020 Democratic nominee - and he's not planning to back down anytime soon. Not even with 23 other Democratic presidential hopefuls in the running alongside him.
MSNBC's Kasie Hunt spoke with Sanders for an interview prior to the first Democratic debate night where he plainly said, "I intend to be the Democratic nominee."
In the interview, Sanders also discussed his plan to end student loan debt and Medicare for all. But before that, he said there was another pressing issue.
"Our goal right now is to win it," Sanders said. "And by the way, as you you may know, poll after poll shows what against Trump? Shows me beating Trump by 8, 9 or 10 points. We're going to beat Trump, we're going to win the Democratic nomination."
Justice Department sues Omarosa Manigault Newman over financial disclosures
The Justice Department on Tuesday sued Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former contestant on "The Apprentice" who campaigned for President Donald Trump and later worked for him in the White House, alleging she failed to file a required public disclosure report after she left 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, claims Manigault Newman "knowingly and willingly" failed to file the financial disclosure report after corresponding multiple times with attorneys for the White House. It accuses her of violating the Ethics in Government Act (EIGA) by not filing the report, which was required because her salary exceeded $124,406, despite several oral and written reminders from White House ethics lawyers.
