HBO host Bill Maher was in a giddy mood on Friday night, predicting Donald Trump is about to be ousted and saying they will probably have to drag him out of the White House bathroom.
Opening his show with a red, white and blue balloon drop, the “Real Time” host began by pointing out that he knew why his audience was cheering, saying, “Biden won the election. The networks are still too chickensh*t to call it, but plainly, he’s won this election.”
Continuing in that vein, he added, “Until all the ballots are counted, President Trump is telling everyone to stay calm, and classy, and respect the process. Of course he’s not. He’s throwing a tantrum like the two-ton whiny little bitch he is. He doesn’t like that for the first time he’s on the other end of an eviction notice.”
The host went on to note that his history with the president goes back years involving a lawsuit over a Maher joke where he insisted Trump’s mother had sex with an orangutan.
Recalling the joke, the HBO host stated, “Let’s be gracious in victory. I just want to say Mr. Trump — if you’re watching — as you do sometimes accidentally, you may have lost the election but there’s one thing that you will always have, and that’s the knowledge that your father never loved you and your mother had sex with an ape.”
If the GOP thinks Trump is ushering in a crisis — why did they support him for the last year?: Bulwark editor
Veteran newsman Carl Bernstein revealed that there are 21 Republicans too scared to reveal they think President Donald Trump should have reached the end of his options to fight the 2020 election. Still, most of them aren't speaking out publicly and they spent the past year enabling Trump, knowing full well that this is who he is.
Writing for the Bulwark on Monday, Jonathan V. Last cited editors of the National Review who are calling Trump's behavior “disgraceful” and “the most outlandish and irresponsible performance ever by a group of lawyers representing a president of the United States.”
Power-hungry Republicans do not fear Trump — it’s worse than that
There’s a presumption at work among members of the Washington press corps that needs rethinking. That presumption is this: the Republicans, especially those in the Senate, fear the wrath of voters who have balled up their identities with the rise and fall of Donald Trump. For this reason, all the Republicans, with rare exception, stand in silence while the president prosecutes what must be called an attempted coup d’etat.
Katie Porter did not question Emily Murphy because the GSA head blew off today’s Biden transition briefing
