Bill Maher Fires Back at Trump on ‘Real Time,' Mocks His Fear of Ramps
HBOLast week, Bill Maher closed his HBO show Real Time with a mock-eulogy for President Trump, joking that he taught his children "the wrong lessons of life," including to "see the worst in people, and treat them all equally based strictly on how much money they make and what they look like." He closed the speech with, "He died as he lived: wearing makeup and lying in front of all of us. So fly free, whiny little bitch. Fly free. May you find the peace your Twitter thumbs never could."

Trump, who once sued Maher for $5 million (and lost) for cracking that he was "the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan," did not take kindly to the comic's bit, tweeting this week, "Watched @billmaher last week for the first time in a long time. He's totally SHOT, looks terrible, exhausted, gaunt, and weak. If there was ever a good reason for no shutdown, check out this jerk. He never had much going for him, but whatever he did have is missing in action!"

So on Friday's Real Time, Maher issued a not-so-formal response to the president of the United States, who's chosen to spend his time feuding with a late-night host in the midst of a global pandemic that's killing hundreds upon hundreds of Americans a day.
