Comedian Bill Maher went straight to the meat of the feud between President Donald Trump and "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski: the extortion.
The reason that Trump had his staff reach out to the MSNBC hosts was to try to blackmail them into more favorable coverage by killing a story about their personal relationships.
"You can never be too rich to be white trash," Maher began the segment attacking Trump.
The second piece of the attack for Maher was that Trump should probably not go after someone's appearance given that he looks like "a fat old man with orange face paint, pretending to be a blond at the age of 71."
"Mika Brzezinski!" Maher said imitating Trump. "'You do crazy things to delay aging!' Says the man who glues dryer lint to his head."
