After Donald Trump pulled off the monumental upset and defeated Hillary Clinton to become the next president-elect, half the country was stunned and dreaded what was coming next. As families sat down for Thanksgiving dinner, liberal comedian Bill Maher made sure to send out a special message to his liberal fans.

Maher on Trump

Just days before Election Day, the consensus among the majority of the mainstream media and most pollsters was not just that Clinton was going to defeat Donald Trump, but that it would be by such wide margins that the Democratic Party would regain control of the Senate, and also pick up seats in the House of Representatives.

On his final show before the election, Bill Maher, host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," took a break from his usual comedy routine and warned voters of the magnitude of what a potential Trump administration would be. On his first show after the election, Maher was noticeably upset, but expressed desire to give Trump a chance, even if it was a slight one while holding his feet to the fire. On Thanksgiving, Maher took to his Twitter account on November 24 to offer a not-so-optimistic message for those who are still in mourning.

"Happy TG everybody - politics isn't everything, and we still have a lot to,um,you know, be thankful," Bill Maher tweeted, before adding, "Oh f*ck it, just enjoy the food." Maher's message came after a previous re-tweet was sent from the night before, linking to an article in The Atlantic that criticized Trump's pick for Attorney General, Sen.

Jeff Sessions. Maher's re-tweet makes note of Sessions' skepticism of Climate Change, an issue that is one the liberal comedian often makes sure to talk about.

Maher wasn't all doom and gloom on Thanksgiving. On his Facebook and Instagram pages, Maher posted a photo of himself with his "writers," three younger children, wearing pilgrim hats. The caption reads, "Comedy never rests...with my writers working on new material for Thanksgiving.

Moving forward

Bill Maher wrapped up his season finale of "Real Time with Bill Maher" and won't return until January, right when Donald Trump is set to be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. As the former host of "The Apprentice" continues to finalize his cabinet and administration, one can only wonder what Maher is preparing when he kicks off 2017 with Trump in the White House.
