HBO host Bill Maher couldn’t help but note that New York City is working hard to take care of it’s rat problem by shipping both Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani off to Washington.
During his Monday night opener, Maher knocked the man once known as America’s mayor as someone who became “famous by attaching himself to a pile of rubble.” Thus, Maher assume it could work for Trump’s new lawyer.
Maher also said that he paid his taxes this week, implying that he wrote a hefty check. He explained that typically it’s a painful check to write, but it’s even worse when you know that Trump’s government is going to spend it on fancy office furniture.
“I wrote on the memo line on my check: dinning room table for Ben Carson,” he quipped.
Pivoting to EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, who Maher called “this f*cking guy,” the host brought up the coin that Puritt wants to change for the agency. The former coin had a plant with people holding hands and a hopeful message. Pruitt wants to put a buffalo with a bible verse on it.
“Because nothing says ‘the environment’ more than a picture of an animal we almost drove to extension and a book that doesn’t believe in science,” Maher mocked.
He went on to call Pruitt “maybe the most corrupt official ever in a cabinet.”
Maher also talked about former FBI Director James Comey’s press tour promoting his book. The host said that Comey has done so many shows that he’s even doing Dr. Oz, where he points out on the doll where Trump touched him.
