Bill Maher began Friday’s show by mocking the Republican Party for spending the last several days denouncing their own laws that are increasing the national debt.
“I mean, the Republicans, f*ck man! No shame in their game,” he said about the budget passed early Friday morning. He noted that the deficit has increased by $1 trillion in just a single year of GOP control.
“I don’t want to be an ‘I told you so,’ but you knew this was going to happen when you elected Hillary,” Maher joked. “Wow! No shame in their game. When Obama was president and spending needed to happen, they fought every godd*mn penny. But they open right up for the white guy. In D.C. that’s called the reverse Kardashian. But you know this about Republicans they’re great about just coming up with a new rule. They just pull a new rule out of their ass.”
Maher recalled that the new rule for Republicans on the debt is that as long as they denounce it while they’re increasing the debt, then it’s acceptable.
“As long as you fight this with every fibre of your being then it’s OK,” he said. “It’s like gay sex and collusion.”
Maher brought up Omarosa’s appearance on “Celebrity Big Brother,” and couldn’t help but note the White House has turned her into Marlon Brando in “Apocalypse Now.”
“The horror! The horror!” Maher said.
He even mocked President Donald Trump’s hair mishap this week. Maher explained that it explains why Trump doesn’t come into the office until 11 a.m. because he’s got to “watch his stories and do his hair.”
