As Real Time with Bill Maher aired last night, news networks were still waiting for Donald Trump’s video taped apology for comments he made in 2005. Maher’s show went out live and it was clear he was not expecting to have a story like that the one that broke yesterday.
Maher began the show by hopng those in the path of Hurricane Matthew would stay safe and then said “However, with Donald Trump talking about women, it has been upgraded to a category five shitstorm.” Maher had prepared an opening monologue about the vice-presidential debate but simply had to address what some are calling ‘Pussygate’.
“Every week I say this, ‘This is really happening?'” Maher said. ““Grab them by the pussy?! Sounds like what Hillary did to Trump at the first debate.” Mahers comments were met with approval from the audience but Maher seemed shocked by the directness of Trump’s comments.
Maher’s show ended before Trump’s apology was released. Many commentators have said Trump’s apology hasn’t gone nearly far enough. In a 90 second video, Trump did not apologize to the women in question or condemn jokes about sexual assault. This morning, more Republicans have come out and condemned Trump.
