Appearing on on HBO's Real Time to promote her show I Love You, America, comedian Sarah Silverman took some shots at President Donald Trump and his followers and talked about what it is like to be a Jew in the age of Trump.


Speaking with host Bill Maher, Silverman described the president's avid supporters as a "cult."

"They don’t know they’re lied to,” Silverman said of Trump fans. “It’s like cults. Cults don’t know they’re lied to.”

She then turned to the increase in attacks on Jews as white nationalists have become more active during Trump's two years in office.

“You know, Bill, in a time where anti-Semitic crime is up 57 percent since this douchebag has taken office, it is not lost on me that I am very lucky that I get a star and I don’t have to sew it on my clothes,” Silverman said before adding, "I don’t know if that’s gallows humor or just like ‘it’s funny because it’s true’ humor.”
