Comedian Bill Maher slammed the effort by Republicans to pass draconian laws against abortion in GOP-controlled states.
Maher updated his viewers with the latest developments and said things were getting so bad Mississippi is going start banning abortion at the moment “you swipe right on Twitter.”
The host showed particular scorn for Alabama, which he said “puts the dick in Dixie.”
He also offered his thoughts on the “Boycott Alabama” movement, which said applied to bulk purchasers of fried green tomatoes or meth.
He also discussed his fake call to an Alabama business.
Pence spokesman denies Sondland testimony linking him to Ukraine scheme
Vice President Mike Pence scrambled away from testimony from EU ambassador Gordon Sondland linking him to the Ukraine scandal.
The ambassador told a House impeachment inquiry that Pence was notified of concerns that military aid to Ukraine had been held up until the foreign government announced an investigation of Joe Biden.
“The Vice President never had a conversation with Gordon Sondland about investigating the Bidens, Burisma, or the conditional release of financial aid to Ukraine based upon potential investigations," said Pence spokesman Marc Short.
President Donald Trump had been scheduled to meet Ukraine's new president Volodymyr Zelensky on Sept. 1 in Warsaw, but Sondland said the president bowed out to oversee hurricane response and sent Pence instead.
‘It’s all over’: Trump shouts Sondland quotes at reporters before wandering off without taking questions
President Donald Trump did not answer questions while leaving the White House nearly an hour late for an event in Texas.
Trump departed during questioning of Ambassador Gordon Sondland, whose testimony earlier in the day had implicated the president, Vice President Mike Pence, Rudy Giuliani and others.
“I don’t know him very well. I have not spoken to him much. This is not a man I know well. He seems like a nice guy though," Trump said of Sondland.
Trump also disputed Sondland's characterization that he had once been in a bad mood.
Ex-Republican Justin Amash roasts his former party for disastrous impeachment hearings: ‘Is there a mercy rule?’
Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) had some fun at the expense of his former party on Wednesday in the midst of European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland's damning testimony during House impeachment hearings.
After watching Sondland testify that there was an explicit quid-pro-quo agreement linking launching investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden with holding a face-to-face meeting between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Amash declared that the EU ambassador "has eviscerated the Trump/Republican narrative."
He then jokingly asked if there was "a mercy rule for congressional hearings" given how badly the hearings have gone for Trump so far.
