HBO’s “Real Time” with Bill Maher was interrupted by a supporter of President Donald Trump on Friday.
The host was arguing with conservative talk radio personality Buck Sexton when a member of the audience began yelling about the “great president.”
“I do not know him, by the way,” Sexton said.
“I was just going to say, I see you brought a guest,” Maher replied.
“We’ve got to get faster moving security people,” Maher said. “You’ve made your point, I don’t know what it is, but your point is that you like Trump — a lot of people like Trump.”
“Make sure he doesn’t have a gun,” Maher added.
Trump says there’s been ‘confusion’ — but urges supporters to mask up: ‘We have nothing to lose’
After months of casting doubt about wearing masks, President Donald Trump on Monday emailed his supporters about the "confusion" on the subject.
"We are all in this together, and while I know there has been some confusion surrounding the usage of face masks, I think it's something we should all try to do when we are not able to be socially distanced from others," Trump wrote in the email, that was posted online by multiple journalists.
I don't love wearing them either. Masks may be good, they may be just okay, or they may be great," the email read.
In the email, Trump referred to COVID-19 as "the China Virus."
Here’s why the coronavirus spike is especially devastating to rural communities
The first coronavirus hot spots in the country were densely-populated cities with international ports of entry, like New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.
But the virus has now penetrated deep into rural areas around the country. And according to Politico, a new study has shed light on the catastrophic problems this has created for rural communities: more than half of U.S. rural communities have no ICU beds, forcing hospitals to transfer patients far away to other facilities that can accommodate severe COVID-19 cases.
Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.
"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.
Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.
"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.
"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
