‘Welcome to Apprentice, Nuclear Edition’: Bill Maher blasts Trump for making presidency a TV show

Published

on

Comedian and host of HBO’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher blasted Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey on Friday night, comparing it to a scene from Trump’s reality TV game show, “The Apprentice.”

After declaring “TGIF after a week of WTF,” Maher laid into the firing of FBI Director Comey and the White House’s ever-shifting rationale for doing so.

“It seems like there was a year’s worth of news stuffed into one week,” Maher said.

The president “fired the man that was investigating him,” he continued. “How would you like to be able to do that? A cop pulls you over, ‘You’re under arrest, sir.’ Oh, yeah? You’re fired.”

Maher went on to point out how Trump contradicted all of his spokespeople’s previous reasons for the firing when he went on Lester Holt’s show and said that it was all his idea and that he would have fired Comey with or without his Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General’s recommendation.

Not only did he say it was his idea, Maher pointed out, he admitted that it was because of the Russia probe.

“Putin must be in the Kremlin thinking ‘Bullshit,'” Maher said. “‘It’s time to deactivate his microchip.'”

“We’re a little over a hundred days now,” Maher said. “Acting Attorney General? Fired. National Security Adviser? You’re fired. FBI Director? You’re fired…welcome to ‘Apprentice, Nuclear Edition.”

This story originally appeared at Salon.

The strange circular objects in question have been unofficially dubbed "Odd Radio Circles" (ORCs); three of them were discovered in a recent data accumulated during a preliminary survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, a radio telescope array in Western Australia. A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
