As part of his early morning Twitter rant on Wednesday, President Donald Trump took a shot at Nordstrom for dropping the clothing line of his daughter, Ivanka Trump. After the president offered his criticism, backlash quickly followed, leading to comedian Bill Maher to give his thoughts.

Maher on Trump

Taking to his Twitter account, Donald Trump targeted the department store, and didn't hold back. "My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom," Trump wrote, before stating, "She is a great person, always pushing me to do the right thing!

Terrible!" In response, Nordstrom released a statement explaining that the decision to drop the Ivanka clothing line was strictly about business and performance. Trump's critics were quick to go on the attack, questioning why the President of the United States was wasting his time attacking a department store. As seen on his Twitter account on February 8, Bill Maher also had a few things to say on the issue.

"If Trump is gonna go bananas every time someone insults his daughter-wife, it's gonna - oh, like it wasn't already gonna be a long 4 years," Bill Maher tweeted.

Maher's social media message is one in a long line of attacks, as the noted atheist has been one of the president's most outspoken critics. Every Friday, Maher hosts the popular "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO, which often targets Donald Trump and other Republicans over their policies and political agenda. Unlike more partisan political shows, Maher routinely invites Republicans and other conservatives to join the conversation, where the current administration is a hot topic.
