Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time” faced major backlash after he made a vulgar joke regarding President Trump and his daughter.
Maher, while talking to New York Magazine reporter Gabriel Sherman, was noted to have joked about Ivanka’s attempts to “humanize” her father that have supposedly lead him to believe that they have some abnormal social behavior going on behind the scenes.
“A lot of us thought: Ivanka is gonna be our saving grace,” Maher said. “When he’s about to f**kin’ nuke Finland or something, she’s gonna walk into the bedroom and, you know, —‘Daddy, Daddy.’” Maher even went on to mimicked Ivanka pleasuring with her father by making disgusting hand gesture and saying, “‘Don’t do it, Daddy.’”
Sherman, on the other hand, appeared to be extremely ashamed and uncomfortable. Sherman tried to make efforts to steer away from the conversation, but much of the damage was already done.
“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,” Sherman answered.
Maher went on with his jokes, “Be nice to Ivanka, she’s our only hope — because she seems like she actually knows rationality, but she’s [Trump’s] kid, and she’s the only one who can get to him, and you know he loves her. If he’s going to do something nutty, we’re going to depend on Ivanka going into that bedroom.”
Maher then, took another stab at mimicking Ivanka, “‘Daddy, you have to apologize for that tweet where you called Angela Merkela a ‘c**t.’ You have to apologize, Daddy!”
The public was fast to show their response to Maher’s action and took matters to Twitter.
A series of tweets surrounded the Internet, some of which were:
“Bill Maher incest “joke” about Ivanka Trump sick. Just shows everyone how deranged Maher truly is to even think of such crap.”
“@seanhannity the incest joke bill maher made about ivanka and our president was repulsive. imagine someone said this about Obama !!”
