Omarosa Manigault Newman’s tell-all book has dominated the news cycle this week, providing fodder for Bill Maher who opened Real Time with an extended monologue about the situation.
“Not such a good week for the president,” Maher said. “He lost his one black friend.”
Maher didn’t let Omarosa off the hook.
“Let’s not forget that Omarosa did defend Trump a million times, lies for him. After the election she said, ‘All his detractors would have to bow down before Donald Trump,'” he said. “I don’t care, she’s out a**hole now!”
Maher then aired the tape of Trump talking to Omarosa after she was fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly.
On the tape, Trump pretends to not know that Omarosa was being fired and said “damn it!” in pretend rage.
“What a p*ssy piece of sh*t he is,” Maher said. “Can’t even—’They run a big operation here. Boy if I ever find this President of the United States guy!'”
Maher then highlighted some of the most controversial parts of the book, such as Trump allegedly bringing a tanning bed into the White House and Melania Trump allegedly planning to divorce him.
“She says he drinks eight Diet Cokes a day, which causes dementia,” he said. “But, c’mon, it’s working, he has the body of a Greek god—sorry, a Greek diner.”

Trump announces he has unilaterally decided to let Putin back into the G7 Summit: report
President Donald Trump announced on Saturday that he intends to let Russia attend the next Group of Seven summit.
Since 2014, Russia's membership in the organization has been suspending in response to Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea. That changed the name from the G8 Summit to the G7 Summit.
The announcement came from pool reporter Gabby Orr of Politico, who said Trump will also invite South Korea, Australia and India to the next summit, which he is postponing until September.
More via pooler: “‘I don’t feel that as a G7 it properly represents what’s going on in the world. It’s a very outdated group of countries,’ he said. Alyssa Farah said this is bringing together our traditional allies to talk about how to deal with the future of China.”
