Bill Maher celebrated his birthday Friday on the same day Donald Trump celebrated his inauguration as president — which made perfect sense to Maher.
“What does every kid want for his birthday?” he asked. “A clown.”
Maher’s birthday and Trump’s inauguration also coincided with the new season of Maher’s “Real Time” on HBO — which gave Maher plenty of material for his monologue. (You can watch the entire episode above.)
“We Americans have a new leader,” he said. “Vladimir Putin.”
He also noted that Trump supporters say the presidential election was “a reckoning.”
“I reckon we’re all f—ed,” Maher said.
Maher also said that when Chief Justice John Roberts swore Trump in, the Supreme Court leader asked him to “raise your right p—y grabber.”
And the HBO host said people should stop expecting Trump to start acting like past chief executives.
“There’s not a normal president inside the Trump fat suit,” he said.
Believe it or not, Maher didn’t like Trump’s inauguration speech, either.
“It wasn’t classy or unifying. It was joyless and ugly and divisive. And the theme, if I could find a theme, was ‘Once you go black, you can go back.”
Maher also weighed in on the unfounded accusation that Trump paid Russian hookers to perform “golden showers.”
“I believe they did it,” Maher said. “I just don’t believe he paid them.”
