Bill Maher just followed Stephen Colbert’s lead and made a controversial Trump joke on Live TV. Colbert is already under investigation in Trump’s new censored America.
On last night’s show, Maher spoke with New York magazine reporter Gabriel Sherman. During their conversation, Maher dropped a bombshell joke that made Sherman uncomfortable:
Read an excerpt from The Daily Beast below:
“What do you make of Ivanka and her efforts to sort of humanize her father?” Maher asked Sherman of the first daughter, who is currently flouting ethics rules in promoting her new book, Women Who Work. You see, Sherman has become the leading media voice when it comes to Fox News, and his tireless reporting led to the ouster of Fox News overlord Roger Ailes.
“We see all this misogyny at Fox News, we see it in Donald Trump himself,” continued Maher. “A lot of us thought: Ivanka is gonna be our saving grace. When he’s about to nuke Finland or something, she’s gonna walk into the bedroom and—‘Daddy, Daddy…’” he said, mimicking Ivanka giving her father a handjob. “‘Don’t do it, Daddy.’”
“Is that how you see Ivanka?” Maher asked Sherman. “No,” replied the red-faced reporter. “I think, again, she’s on the margins trying to save us—to the degree that she can—but Donald Trump doesn’t listen to anybody, including his own family.”
It’s hard to say that Maher was wrong for making such a joke. The Trump show is nothing more than a circus act begging to be ridiculed. Ivanka Trump is no better than her father. She’s similar to a fish that follows a shark to catch all of the scraps the shark drops.
