Real Time with Bill Maher returned to screens last night and it didn’t take long for Bill Maher to start taking on Donald Trump’s lies. Maher has called Trump out in the past for falsehood and blustering and last night was no exception. Maher detailed the Republican candidate’s series of lies.
Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway joined the show for the usual interview section and Maher decided to read her a list of Trump’s lies. Since joining Trump’s campaign, Conway has been rolled out to defend Trump’s many controversial statements.
“‘I don’t know anything about David Duke.’ Utter lie,” Maher said, detailing Trump’s lies. “‘Vladimir Putin and I are best friends.’ He never met him. He ‘got a letter from the NFL,’ which was proved never happened. He gave money to the veterans when he didn’t. ‘I was against the Iraq war,’ when it’s on tape that he was not.”
Conway responded to Maher’s far from exhaustive list of Trump’s falsehoods by telling the veteran comedian that she ‘can’t support someone who lies for a living’. This was too much for Maher, who’s used his show over the last few months to highlight Trump’s questionable claims and extreme policies.
“You just said you can’t support someone who ‘lies for a living,’” Maher said. “When I read a list of provable lies.” Maher finished the interview by referring to his long-running dispute with Trump about Maher’s claim that Trump Sr. was actually an orangutan. “Tell him not to sue me again,” Maher told Conway.
