President Trump tore into Bill Maher on Wednesday, saying he watched the funnyman’s recent show on HBO and concluded he is “missing in action!”
“Watched @billmaher last week for the first time in a long time. He’s totally SHOT, looks terrible, exhausted, gaunt, and weak. If there was ever a good reason for no shutdown, check out this jerk,” Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to how Maher has been hosting the show virtually during the coronavirus pandemic.
“He never had much going for him, but whatever he did have is missing in action!” the president said.
Trump and Maher have long traded barbs, with the president referring to him as a “wacko comedian” whose show is “full of lies.”
Maher has made the commander-in-chief a frequent target for criticism.
On last Friday’s “Real Time,” Maher delivered a mock eulogy for Trump, noting how the president didn’t attend the funerals for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), and former First Lady Barbara Bush.
Maher said watching past presidents praise Lewis at his funeral made him think of Trump.
“I actually felt sad for him because at his funeral nobody is going to talk about him like that,” Maher said, adding that he wishes Trump “a long healthy life in some place where he can’t harm America.”
Maher continued: “Some men look at the world and ask, ‘Why?’ Donald Trump looked at the world and asked, ‘What’s in it for me?’ His generosity knew only limits, and he never once failed to put himself before others.”
