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.

Nancy Pelosi roasts Mark Zuckerberg for ‘pandering’ to Trump and his ‘silly’ tantrums
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday mocked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for his efforts to appease President Donald Trump's criticisms of major social media companies.
During a press conference, Pelosi said that Zuckerberg "just panders" to Trump in an effort to preserve his business model, which she described as a platform for people to "misrepresent facts" without consequence.
"They knew during the 2016 elections that the Russians were engaged in foul play," she said. "They knew, because they saw where the money was coming from!"
She then turned her attention to Trump's new executive order that will reportedly open up tech platforms to more lawsuits.
Pennsylvania Dem unloads on GOPers who pushed to reopen as they hid colleague’s COVID-19 infection
Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims (D) lashed out at Republican lawmakers who remained silent after testing positive for COVID-19.
Democrats this week accused Republicans of withholding information after Rep. Andrew Lewis (R) tested positive for the virus.
"It's been a week, perhaps longer, that House Republican leadership knew that at least one of their members had tested positive for COVID-19," Sims explained in a Facebook post. "But they didn't go on quarantine until they were done serving alongside us, especially those of us that serve on the State Government Committee."
