With less than a month in office, Donald Trump is already facing his first major scandal as commander in chief. As expected, backlash quickly followed, and comedian Bill Maher didn't hold back his thoughts.

Maher on Trump

When it became clear that Donald Trump was going to become the new president, no one really knew what to expect. Trump then started to surround himself with controversial individuals in his administration, which only kicked into high gear following his inauguration last month. While Trump has only been in office for four weeks, he's created a constant cloud of controversy that has hovered over him, which peaked when retired Gen.

Michael Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Adviser last week. Trump followed the scandal by increasing his attack on the mainstream media, which was on display during a Thursday afternoon press conference at the White House. These issues, and more, were highlighted during the February 17 edition of "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO.

Starting off his show with his weekly opening monologue was Bill Maher. "We've come a long way from our first president who said 'I can not tell a lie'" Maher said. "It's not so fu**ing fun anymore," he noted, before referring to Donald Trump as "Agent Orange." "The intel agency are leaking like crazy because they are sending a desperate message," he added, while stating, "He's crazy and fu**ing nuts and they know it."

"They have floated Sarah Palin as the Ambassador to Canada," Bill Maher went on to say, humorously noting that she would be "the first ambassador in history to require a security deposit." Maher then went on to rip into the White House.

"They love these distractions, meanwhile they are doing this sh*t," the liberal comedian said, pointing out, "The senate confirmed Scott Pruitt to be the head of the EPA. It's less like public service and more like community service."

Bill Maher went on to focus on Trump's press conference earlier this week, and didn't hold back.

"What we have here is a mental patient who thinks he's Hitler," he said, while noting, "the YouTube kid who is high from the dentist, made more sense." Maher concluded his monologue in a more serious tone, as he warned viewers about the president.

Moving forward

As critics like Bill Maher continue to roast Donald Trump with each passing week of his time in the White House, it's likely that the president will not be happy about the criticism. Trump has made it clear that he's not a fan of the media, and the relationship doesn't look to be showing any signs of improvement.
