Ever since Donald Trump shocked the world and defeated Hillary Clinton to become the new President of the United States, his critics have been dreading the day where it became offical. After Trump was sworn in as the leader of the free world on Friday, those who oppose the president weren't shy in voicing their thoughts, including comedian Bill Maher.

"Real Time" on Trump

Not long after Donald Trump announced his campaign for president in June 2015 at Trump Tower in New York City, backlash quickly followed.

Allegations of "racism," "sexism," Islamaphobia," and other forms of prejudice were quickly attached to the former host of "The Apprentice." Trump wasn't viewed as a legitimate candidate to start, but once he locked up the Republican nomination, anything seemed possible. Giving his controversial opinion during the entire campaign was Bill Maher, who returned to HBO on Sunday night for the 15th season of "Real Time with Bill Maher." As reported on January 20, Maher didn't hold back what he thought of the Trump inauguration, and ripped into the new president.

Kicking off his show in his usual fashion, Bill Maher took hard shots at Donald Trump during his opening monologue. "It really happened, we Americans have a new leader, Vladimir Putin, and also this guy Trump took an oath today," Maher said of Inauguration Day. "Trump supporters are saying his election is 'a reckoning.' As in, 'I reckon we’re all fucked,'” Maher continued. On the inauguration ceremony, Maher used humor again to get his point across, stating, "Trump used two Bibles, in case the first one burst into flames."

"His speech was 16 minutes long," Bill Maher pointed out, while adding, "I know that sounds long, but that's like over 100 tweets." Maher went on to describe Donald Trump's inauguration speech as "joyless," "ugly," and "divisive." The liberal comedian continued to rip into Trump over the allegations of Russian blackmailing and the unverified report of a "golden shower" sex tape.
