Bill Maher calls Trump 'white trash' for Mika Brzezinski tweets

This is what ‘the leader of the free world writes.’

Posted on

Bill Maher learned one thing from President Trump: “You can never be too rich to be white trash.”

The host of HBO’s Real Time took POTUS to task over the “face-lift” tweets he lodged against MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, an attack that still continues with Trump’s “dumb as a rock” tweets Saturday morning. “There’s so many important things going on, but never mind all that,” Maher began his monologue on Friday night. “Morning Joe is in a Twitter feud with the Real Housewife of Pennsylvania Avenue. So let’s get right to that.”

He recapped how “President What-the-F–k” Trump “poop tweeted another gem” on the “sh—er,” that Brzezinski and her cohost Joe Scarborough “came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

Maher, noting how this is what “the leader of the free world writes,” made a suggestion: “If you’re gonna go after a woman’s appearance, first make sure you’re not a fat old man with orange face paint pretending to be a blonde at the age of 71. Who’s a blonde at 71?” Mimicking Trump’s voice, he continued, “‘Mika Brzezinski, you do crazy things to delay aging,’ says the man who glues dryer lint to his head. Donnie, you’re so unattractive Melania won’t even touch your hand.”

Maher advised Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner, or “whoever’s doing the babysitting,” to get Trump a Chat and Count toy phone. “This way he can tweet all night long and nobody will really see it, and plus it’s rated for 18 months and up, which means there are no small parts he can choke on.”
