HBO host Bill Maher returned for his 16th season helming Real Time and immediately began getting caught up on the latest Donald Trump news – taking particular glee at Trump getting caught paying off a porn star to keep quiet about having an affair with him.
Addressing the revelation that Trump’s personal lawyer funneled $130,000 to adult actress Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election, Maher explained, “You don’t pay somebody that kind of money if there isn’t something there.”
“So in 2006, only months after Melania had given birth to their son, Donald Trump is schtupping this porn star who is also cheating on her boyfriend. And he knew because she used to come home with orange on her collar,” the HBO host continued.
After listing off some of Daniel’s adult films, Maher continued, “He didn’t use protection! He said he’d only use a condom if Mexico paid for it. What the f*ck? You’ve got to love Donald Trump, he’s the world’s biggest germaphobe – won’t shake hands. Rawdog with a pornstar? No problem.”
“She said she chased her the room in his tighty-whities,” Maher continued. “And when Trump heard tightey-whities, he said, ‘What? You mean my voters?'”

Trump’s tumbling support among ‘the poorly educated’ may crush his 2020 prospects: report
When Donald Trump famously declared, “I love the poorly educated” during his 2016 campaign, it was obvious that he was taking a much more populist (or rather, pseudo-populist) approach than Republican presidential candidates were typically known for. And white males without college degrees continue to be a key part of the president’s base. But Washington Post columnist Aaron Blake, analyzing an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released on Monday, stresses that when Trump is up against a “generic 2020 Democrat,” he finds himself struggling with non-college educated white women.
Trump chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told Republican donors any recession will be ‘moderate and short’
President Donald Trump has spent the last week claiming that any talk of a recession is a conspiracy theory by the media and part of a leftist coup against him.
The message didn't seem to get to his chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, who told Republican donors this week that the recession will be a quick one.
Politico reported the comments Tuesday, saying that it was part of a Jackson, Wyoming fundraiser with White House aides Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who are supposed to be "camping" with their family, according to her Instagram channel.
Former Defense Secretary warns: ISIS is back, and Trump can’t ‘pretend it’s not there’
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," former Defense Secretary and CIA head Leon Panetta warned that ISIS is gaining strength in the Middle East again — and that after all of President Donald Trump's boasts that he had utterly defeated the terrorist organization, now it is time for him to get serious.
"Roughly estimated 15,000 ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria now," said host Kate Bolduan. "Secretary Pompeo saying the terror group is, in some ways, stronger than it was three or four years ago. How big of a concern should the news be for Americans?"
"It should be a very serious concern for the president of the United States and for our country," said Panetta. "Because his first responsibility is to protect our country. And we learned from 9/11, the fact that these terrorists have one fundamental aim, which is to attack the United States and attack countries in the West. And now what we're hearing is that ISIS is clearly re-mobilizing to the tune of almost is 15,000-18,000, that are mobilizing into secret cells, mobilizing into attack teams, conducting not only attacks but kidnappings and assassinations and bombings, as we saw in Afghanistan. So this is, in the end, a national security threat that the United States cannot simply stand back and pretend it's not there."
