Bill Maher likens Trump event to ‘Klan rally,’ defends Biden against Booker

Comedian Bill Maher took aim Friday night at President Trump‘s 2020 re-election campaign kickoff event, which was held in Orlando, Fla., earlier in the week.

“Did you see this Klan rally he was having there?” Maher joked at the start of the 500th episode of “Real Time,” which he has been hosting since 2003. He added that Trump supporters had a “goldfish memory.”

Maher later congratulated himself for the influence he believes his show has had on America.

“We went on the air in 2003. Since then, weed has become increasingly legal, religion is on the decline, and less people are having children,” he said. “You’re welcome, America.”

TRUMP FORMALLY KICKS-OFF 2020 RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN

Maher continued with jokes about Trump being a racist. For example, he told the audience that Hope Hicks — Trump’s former White House communications director — had admitted during Capitol Hill testimony this week that she had told “white lies” to protect the president.

“That’s Trump for you,” Maher said. “Even the lies have to be white.”

“That’s Trump for you. Even the lies have to be white.”

Later, Maher took issue that the media did not point out that members of the controversial Proud Boys group had attended the Orlando rally, adding that the group’s members were “accepted” by Trump’s base.

“Look at these guys,” Maher said, referring to the Proud Boys. “They’re making that, that sign, that white supremacist sign, and they’re welcomed as part of this base. OK, I didn’t hear about that at all this week.”

One of Maher’s guests, Dan Savage — the syndicated columnist and LGBT activist — asserted that the Republican Party was “controlled by racists.”

At another point in the show, Maher defended Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden over his controversial comments about having worked with segregationist senators. Maher blasted the media for focusing on the matter and dismissed Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker’s call for an apology from Biden as “nonsense.”

“I always imagined that… some real person who, like, sees this chattering going on among people who sit in places like this on the coasts and are always talking about some nonsense and they’re like, ‘What the f— are you talking about?'” Maher said.

Maher also addressed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her controversial comparison of border detention centers to “concentration camps.”

He noted that if Democrats planned to defeat Trump in 2020 by running on the topics of “concentration camps” and reparations, he wasn’t sure they could pull it off.

“I’m not saying you can’t do it,” he added. “But [it’s] very hard to argue that this is helping.”
