Bill Maher has made Donald Trump an offer he hopes the president can’t resist — millions of dollars to resign from office.
During “New Rules” on Friday night’s “Real Time,” Maher made light of Trump’s insistence that he can’t be bought because he already has a lot of money.
“The exact opposite is true. The man is constantly for sale,” Maher said. “He’s worried about Ukrainian corruption? The only time corruption bothered Donald Trump is when he’s not in on it.”
Maher has voiced his concern many times that if Trump loses re-election, he will refuse to leave office. “How about this: Just take my check for $1 million and I bet I could get another thousand people just from here to the beach including Malibu, of course, who would pay that much to see you resign,” Maher said into the camera, and, he hoped, to the occupant of the West Wing.
“And to those out there who are saying, ‘My God, Bill, are you suggesting we paying this man to go away? Yes, that’s exactly what I’m suggesting. In fact, I’m insisting.”
Maher mocked Trump, saying that the POTUS’ obsession with the almighty dollar is rooted in his childhood and dysfunctional relationship with his late father. “‘Daddy loves a good boy who gets money,'” Maher taunted.
“So, Mr. President, it’s really very simple. You love money, we hate you. … You could finally be the billionaire you always pretended you were. Yes, I said billionaire because of the kind of money I could get from — just off the top of my head — Oprah, Cher, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Bono, Jay Z, Beyoncé, Pink, Rihanna, Usher, Pharrell, Eminem. And that’s just the ones with one name.”
