Ever since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president, he turned American politics upside down. In the aftermath of his election, Trump has been on the receiving end of some heavy criticism, which continued Wednesday night, including at the hands of comedian Bill Maher.

Maher on Trump

Over the last six weeks, the American people have been been even more divided than they were during the election. While Donald Trump and his supporters have been thrilled, those who oppose the former host of "The Apprentice" have been living in a state of shock and awe, fearing what could come over the next four years.

After pulling off one of the biggest political upsets in history, Trump has gone on multiple Twitter rants, targeting everyone from the cast of "Saturday Night Live," to the entire country of China, and President Obama himself. Trump's latest controversy came during a party at his Mar-a-Largo resort on Wednesday night, which Bill Maher was quick to point out on his official Twitter account on December 28.

While speaking to reporters outside of his resort on Wednesday night, Donald Trump was joined by legendary boxing promoter Don King.

King, ever the flamboyant one, was carrying two flags, one for the United States and the other for Israel, while wearing glittery chains and sporting his white puffy hair. The interview was met with oddball looks, as Trump is in the middle of transitioning to become the new commander in chief.

"Anyone worried about the next 4 yrs, just look at Trump today w/ Don King in a wizard costume and a giant Trump button and tell me..oh Jesus," Bill Maher wrote on his Twitter account, mocking the billionaire real estate mogul and his friend Don King. Social media reacted in similar fashion, roosting the president-elect.

Social media backlash

"Convicted murderer and good pal, Don King, hangs with Trump & chats up the press with deflection bulls**t," Twitter user American Girl wrote. "Yikes, Don King at closest thing to press conference with Trump just now holding signature bundle of flags," another Twitter user wrote, asking,

The interview was allegedly supposed to fill the void for Donald Trump not holding a press conference in over 150 days, but all the media got was the president-elect fielding a handful of questions with Don King by his side.

Trump will be sworn in as the next president on January 20, ironically the same day Bill Maher returns to HBO for the new season of "Real Time with Bill Maher."
