Bill discusses FBI Director James Comey’s firing and Trump’s meeting with Russian officials – in his Real Time monologue.
The late night comic criticized Republicans for celebrating removal of pre-existing health conditions in new bill.
‘Good thing California has medical marijuana’ said Bill Maher Friday night in his opening Real Time monologue ‘because when the Republicans get done with healthcare that’s the only treatment you’re gonna have!’
Much of his opener referred to details of House Republicans’ passage of a bill this week that would replace Obamacare with a myriad of cost-cutting conservative initiatives.
The bill caused media and public outcry in large part due to it’s reinstatement of pre-existing condition language that Obamacare had removed – insurance coverage for the vast majority of American people needing health care.
Maher said in effect that they were telling Jimmy Kimmel’s baby to ‘go screw yourself’.‘[N]ever underestimate these bastards’ he said.(cont..)
“Real Time” was back on Friday and host Bill Maher took a bit of time out from his usual President Donald Trump-bashing to giggle about disgraced former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.Calling O’Reilly’s forced departure the end of an era and a ‘settlement’ by Fox News Maher said the last straw for the embattled network was when a black woman employee emerged, saying “O’Reilly used to call her ‘hot chocolate’ – which I find shocking.Fox News hired a black woman?’ Maher joked.‘There was universal condemnation.Even Sean Spicer said ‘Come on – even Hitler didn’t call black women ‘hot chocolate’.(cont..)
‘It’s almost cruel to give him that title’ said Bill Maher of Nunes’ House Intelligence head.
‘Remember the Cold War?’ asked Bill Maher on last night’s Real Time?
‘Well it is back.
But one thing is different.
In the old Cold War the White House was on our side!’ he said.
‘There’s so many strands and smoke to this Russia connection’ quipped Maher on last night’s Real Time.
‘Michael Flynn is asking for immunity to sing and I cannot wait to hear what he has to sing.
He’s the one who led the chants at the convention ‘Lock her up!’ Maher continued.
‘He’s also the one who said ‘If someone is asking for immunity they are probably guilty!’ Maher paused for a laugh.
‘If you think Hillary’s a bitch – try karma!’
‘Potty-trained Trump’ spoke to Congress Tuesday and Maher joked he was given wrong speech by Price Waterhouse.
Bill Maher took the stage Friday night on Real Time to talk about the ‘Russian spy novel’ we’ve all been reading – referring to the current administration’s clear ties to Russia.
Flummoxed a bit and unable to get the words out he told his audience he is going through puberty.
