Maher hits back at the GOP frontrunner’s complaint about former Mexico President Vicente Fox’s use of foul word Trump has dropped himself
Bill Maher gave Donald Trump a lashing Friday in language he could understand.
The comedian concluded his HBO “Real Time” program by highlighting Trump’s colorful deployment of curse words after the GOP frontrunner for president complained about an expletive dropped by one of his critics.
“Talk about the pot calling the kettle orange,” Maher said, before playing a supercut of Trump expletives, often to uproarious cheers from supporters.
Trump demanded an apology over Twitter on Thursday, after former Mexican President Vicente Fox earlier that day slipped in the hot-button expletive during a Fusion television interview while arguing that his country wouldn’t pay to build a wall at the U.S. border.
FMR PRES of Mexico, Vicente Fox horribly used the F word when discussing the wall. He must apologize! If I did that there would be a uproar!

“I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall,” Fox said on the program. “He should pay for it. He’s got the money.” Fox was Mexico’s president from 2000 to 2006.
Maher later in the segment staged a fake State of the Union speech, littered with foul language, at one point breaking his anecdote about a regular Joe who lost his job to stifle his own laughter.
