On Friday, Bill Maher interviewed Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on his HBO show, Real Time.
During the interview, Maher confronted Hurd, a former undercover CIA intelligence officer, about whether Trump is a threat to the United States.
“I never would have thought, in all my time as an undercover offer in the CIA, that I would see a U.S. president getting played by the Russian KGB,” Hurd said.
Hurd opposed Trump’s proposed border wall but has voted with the president the vast majority of the time.
“So isn’t the next thing you say, ‘We have to impeach this president?'” Maher asked. “Do you honestly think this president puts country first?”

Now in day eight of his racist, nativist war on the Congresswomen who are also women of color, Trump called them "weak & insecure," demanded an apology, and decided (contrary to all evidence) they are not "capable of loving our Country."
America has had it with Trump's hate-mongering, racism, and white supremacism, and many across the country are speaking out in very clear terms about this president and his Sunday morning attack.
