Bill Maher was merciless about President Donald Trump’s accidental “covfefe” tweet this week.
He noted that it was a lot like the commercials for the assisted living center. Ultimately the children say “that’s when we knew Dad could no longer live on his own.”
“The last thing I want to hear from this White House is, ‘his fingers just hit the wrong button,'” Maher said.
Maher isn’t worried, however, because he said that Trump has put Jared Kushner in charge of “covfefe.”
As Trump pulls out of the Paris Climate Accord, Maher said it’s like watching the fall of the Roman Empire set to the music of Benny Hill.
Maher then went on to stir up controversy by telling Sen. Ben Sasse that he refused to “work in the fields” because he was “a house n*gger.”

DOJ money laundering probe of Deutsche Bank includes Kushner transactions: report
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is conducting a criminal investigation of possible money laundering violations by Deutsche Bank, and the New York Times is reporting that the probe will include taking a look at some 2016 transactions involving Kushner Cos. — the business owned by the family of Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law.
In banking, reports of possibly suspicious activity are known as “suspicious activity reports,” and the DOJ is investigating why Deutsche Bank prepared such alerts for activity involving Kushner Cos. but did not file them. A key figure in the DOJ’s investigation is whistleblower Tammy McFadden, who helped prepare suspicious activity reports for Kushner Cos.-related transactions. McFadden is a former compliance officer for Deutsche Bank.
Joe Biden promises to answer questions about his son’s overseas business dealings — after he’s elected
Joe Biden refused to answer questions about his son's overseas business dealings.
The Democratic presidential frontrunner has been criticized for conducting diplomatic work as vice president in countries were his son, Hunter Biden, was engaged in business, but he refused at two campaign stops Monday to take questions about the controversy, reported ABC News.
Instead, his campaign promised that Biden would issue an executive order "on his first day in office" to "address conflicts of interest of any kind."
US Justice Dept. tells court migrant children in federal concentration camps don’t need soap or toothbrushes
The Trump administration's Justice Dept. lawyers say migrant children detained in federal concentration camps do not need soap or toothbrushes despite a settlement agreement that requires the U.S. Government to keep them in "safe and sanitary" facilities. The DOJ also argues that the children, detained in the Southern border camps, can continue to sleep on cold concrete floors in overcrowded cells without being in violation of the agreement.
The DOJ made the argument Tuesday before a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit, Courthouse News reports, noting the judges appeared "incredulous" with the government's claims.
