When Donald Trump announced he was going to run for president, he quickly made headlines by referring to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murders." In the last year since he made his campaign announcement, Trump has been under a constant cloud of controversy, with many in the media not holding back their criticism.

Maher goes off

The Republican National Convention is just over three weeks away and the party appears to be having issues finding people to speak at the event. Normally Republican politicians would jump at the chance to address a packed room of conservatives, using the opportunity to build their brand moving forward.

Due to the controversy surrounding Trump, many Republicans have balked at the idea of attending and speaking at the convention, which has left the party at a fork in the road. Former NFL coach Mike Ditka, and Hall of Fame boxer Mike Tyson were names mentioned earlier this week, but once the news broke, Trump was quick to quiet the rumors. Recently, it's been suggested that Trump's family would be forced to fill in the spots, which was discussed on the July 1 edition of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher."

"It was announced today that Melania Trump will be speaking at the Republican convention," Maher told his audience during the opening monologue, stating, "possibly because no one else will." "They have one little problem," Maher said about the GOP, "No one wants to go, and no one wants to speak."

The popular liberal host brought up the idea of Trump asking Ditka and former NCAA basketball coach Bobby Knight to speak at the Cleveland convention, to which Maher sarcastically commented, "Way to broaden your appeal beyond old white guys." After Maher mentioned that Trump's wife and children will be giving speeches, he didn't hold back his thoughts on the family.

(Maher's comments on Trump's family start at 3:50 in the above video.)

"Oh the Trump kids, beautiful, poised Ivanka," Maher said, before moving on to the male children. "The two sons. D*ckhead Von F*ckface Trump and 'Thurston Shi*bag the Third' he said, before admitting, "I don't like those kids."

Election outlook

Any momentum Trump had following his primary-clinching victory at the Indiana primary in May, was lost over a month and a half campaign blunders. In the latest Real Clear Politics rolling average, Hillary Clinton leads the former host of "The Apprentice" by just under five points, 44.6 percent to 39.8 percent.
