Though he's only spent a week and a half as the new president, Donald Trump has already made his mark. After signing a string of controversial executive orders and making questionable cabinet nominations, Trump is receiving backlash, including from comedian Bill Maher.

Maher on Trump

When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president in the summer of 2015, he quickly drew a line in the sand, and supporters and critics made their decision on the former host of "The Apprentice." While Trump had his fair share of supporters, the consensus was that he wouldn't be able to generate enough support to make it out of the Republican primary.

After pulling off the upset and becoming the party's nominee, he was still considered a long-shot to win the general election, especially after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was officially named the Democratic nominee. Despite having the odds in her favor, many on the left were hostile towards Clinton, and refused to vote for her last November. With Trump's presidency less than two weeks old, Bill Maher decided to lash out in a February 1 Twitter post.

"Will those who called Hillary 'lesser of 2 evils' admit how wrong u were?," Bill Maher wrote on Twitter Wednesday night." "Muslim ban, Betsy DeVos, Pruit, Perry in charge of nukes...please," Maher continued in an apparent shot at the anti-Clinton left.

Bill Maher has long been a critic of Donald Trump, going as far as pleading with the American people just days before Election Day in the hopes that they would come out and vote against the billionaire real estate mogul. Maher's call was not heard, and since Trump picked up the win, the host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" has not been happy.

Moving forward

In addition to Bill Maher, other celebrities and millions of Americans have continued to voice their opposition to Donald Trump and his agenda.

Protests have become an almost daily occurrence, most notably during the Women's March a day after the inauguration, as well as various demonstrations against the "Muslim ban" executive order. Considering the wide political divide in the United States, it doesn't appear likely that each side will find common ground anytime soon.
