On Friday, HBO host Bill Maher opened his show, Real Time, with a monologue about a wild election week and the appointment of a “stooge” to lead the Justice department.
“Democrats took the House,” Maher said. “Russia kept the Senate.”
Maher said the election shows that the United States is more divided than ever.
“We are really devolving into two countries,” Maher said. “The tobacco chewers and the people who vape. That’s America.”
Maher was disturbed by the naming of Matt Whitaker as acting attorney general.
“He’s so far up Trump’s *ss Hannity had to scoot over,” Maher said. “He was involved in a company that defrauded money from aspiring investors—he was the hard guy who beat it out of them. He puts criminals in charge of the justice department.”
Maher said Whitaker looked like “the guy who snapped in Full Metal Jacket.”
“I call him ‘Curly’ because he’s the bald stooge,” Maher said. “Say what you want about Trump’s pother fans—at least Caesar Sayoc took the time to paint on some hair.”
