Bill Maher had a pretty bad week – though it’s notable that he somehow managed to keep his job as host of HBO’s “Real Time” after using an offensive racial epithet on air.
But having apologized for using the “n word” during an interview with Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, maybe Maher was just trying to put the incident behind him when he joked that President Trump had it even worse.
“There is someone who had a worse week than me: Donald Trump,” Maher said.
Maher said that former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony, which the media billed as the Superbowl of politics, confirmed what Mahar and many other liberals believe to be the truth about Trump: That he repeatedly tried to pressure Comey to drop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn – an act tantamount to obstruction of justice – then lied about it. But anyone who watched the testimony could see that, if anything, it destroyed both the collusion narrative – the idea that Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russians to sway the election – and the notion that Trump wrongly interfered with Comey.
