On Friday night, HBO host Bill Maher had a few things to say to voters in the heartland who fell in love with Donald Trump whose presidency is more “Goodfellas’ and less “Camelot.”
Pointing out the motley cast President Donald Trump brought to Washington, D.C., with him, the Real Time host described them as New York City’s “most toxic trash” — listing off Trump acolytes Michael Cohen, Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump Jr, and Anthony Scaramucci.
“What happened to your values? What happened to good manners and monogamy? You’re the ‘my word is my bond’ people. These guys lie just to stay in practice,” Maher lectured Trump’s salt of the earth voters. “You’re all about an honest day’s work. Trump watches TV until noon. You’re frugal. They spend like identity thieves who’ve got a hold of your PIN number. You’re the stoics. Trump’s a whiny little b*tch.”
“People call this presidency a ‘reality show,’ It’s more like a Scorsese movie,” Maher raged. “Everything Trump does is modeled on the mob. Who does Trump surround himself with? Disposable lawyers and idiot members of his own family. Who’s his worst enemy? The FBI.”
“And I must say, as someone who has never liked Donald Trump, even before he got into politics, his being president has been quite a revelation,” Maher remarked. “I always thought of him as an egomaniac and a blowhard. But I didn’t realize until this very year that he was a cheap hood all along, a common thug.”
Maher added Trump voters are getting what they deserve for “getting in bed with the mob.”

The two biggest attacks on Mike Bloomberg came from the women at the debate
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had a target painted on his for the Democratic Debate in Las Vegas Wednesday, and all of the Democrats came out swinging.
After an attack by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) explained that there's a billionaire in the race who degrades women by calling them "fat broads and horse-faced lesbians," and it wasn't Donald Trump.
"I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg," she said. "Democrats are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns, of harassing women. And of supporting racist policies like redlining and stop and frisk. Look, I'll support whoever the Democratic nominee is, but understand this, Democrats take a huge risk if we just substitute one arrogant billionaire for another."
‘Barr is a toady’: Jeffrey Toobin says talk of attorney general resigning is ‘just a big show’
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin says he doesn't believe Attorney General William Barr when he claims he considered resigning from the Trump administration.
Sources close to Barr told ABC News that the attorney general had contemplated quitting because President Donald Trump's tweets make it difficult for him to do his job.
"Barr is a toady," Toobin explained during an appearance on CNN. "Barr is doing what he's told. He had this one statement, 'Oh, whoa is me, it's hard for me to do my job when the president tweets.'"
Trump wants Ric Grenell to keep his ambassador job while also overseeing every intelligence agency: report
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was reported to be planning to appoint U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to serve as acting Director of National Intelligence — a position for which he has zero qualifications. The move raised immediate fears, given that Grenell is a hardline Trump loyalist.
But it doesn't stop there. Reports also suggest that the president intends for Grenell to keep serving as Ambassador to Germany at the same time as he is overseeing every U.S. intelligence agency.
