Over the last week, Donald Trump has been forced to deal with the growing Russian scandal, in-fighting within his own administration, and his decision to launch missiles into Syria. While Trump has once again dominated the news coverage, comedian Bill Maher made sure to give his thoughts, while also adding a dig into a Fox News host in the process.

Maher on Trump

In recent days, Donald Trump has had a lot on his plate. The former host of "The Apprentice" has done his best to deflect from the allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and his administration, with the latest right-wing conspiracy involving former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice taking part in the so-called "unmasking" of Trump transition officials.

In addition, the president's decision to fire over 50 tomahawk missiles into Syria in retaliation to the recent chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has also caused backlash, resulting in a rough week for the commander in chief. On top of that, Trump also came to the defense of Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, who was revealed to have reached a $13 million settlement with five different women who accused him of sexual harassment over the last decade. Theses issues and more were all on display during the April 7 edition of "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO.

Kicking off his show with his routine opening monologue, host Bill Maher didn't hold back his opinion on the current state of American politics.

After receiving a loud applause from the audience, Maher responded, "I feel like a women who works at Fox News...I'm touched." "Today Republicans got their two favorite things: a right-wing a**hole on the Supreme Court, and Trump finally blowing some sh*t up," Maher pointed out. Maher then noted that during Obama's time in office, the majority of Republicans singed a letter against the president taking military action in Syria without approval from Congress, as the comedian cited heir hypocrisy for now supporting Trump's latest action.

In response, Maher accused the GOP of not supporting Obama doing the same because it would be considered "bombing while black." Maher also noted that Donald Trump is possibly worried about the ramifications of attacking Syria due to Russia being their close ally. "If Trump does the wrong thing, Putin might not re-elect him," he added.

Bill Maher then shifted on to the recent nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, which the GOP was forced to use the "nuclear option" to force confirmation. "Bill O'Reilly was so excited, he groped himself," Maher said. "Bill O'Reilly had a rough week," he continued while pointing out that as many as seven women have come out and accused the Fox News host of sexual harassment. "Bill Cosby said 'call me when you get to 30,'" Maher joked. "All these women, their stories change a little, but the one constant is that no one wants to f**k Bill O'Reilly," Maher continued.

"I don't think I've ever had sex in my entire life with a Republican. I don't mind f*cking someone's brains out, but f**king them in?" the comedian concluded.

Moving forward

With the likes of Bill Maher and other high-profiled critics of the president speaking out on an almost daily basis, Donald Trump and his supporters have come together to push back at the opposition. However, after Trump's aforementioned actions in Syria, some of his strongest supporters, like Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos, are now openly backing off the Trump train, at least over this one issue in question.
