Over the last week, Donald Trump continued to face an onslaught of criticism over a variety of issues. As expected, comedian Bill Maher highlighted many of these with a scathing takedown of the president during his Friday night show on HBO.

Maher on Trump

For two years Donald Trump has been in the political spotlight. While his candidacy for president was initially viewed as a joke, that was quickly put to rest after he locked up the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention last summer. During that time, Trump didn't hold back his thoughts on many topics, with his controversial rhetoric resulting in either increased support from those who agreed with him, or more criticism from those who oppose him.

It became commonplace for the former host of "The Apprentice" to lash out at his critics, which often included, but was not limited to, Democrats and liberal celebrities. Since his election win over Hillary Clinton, the controversy surrounding the billionaire real estate mogul has only gotten worse, most notably due to the growing Russian scandal that shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. As the pressure mounts on the White House, Bill Maher decided to poke fun at the commander in chief during the June 23 edition of "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO.

As part of his routine opening monologue, Bill Maher didn't pull any punches when it came to the current status of Donald Trump in the White House.

"Donald Trump is the worst person ever," Maher said to the cheers of the audience. "And yet he's a Republican and president, and yet since he's been president there's been four special elections," Maher pointed out in reference to last weeks GOP victories in Georgia and South Carolina. "Democrats are so lame that Russians were like, 'we were gonna hack this election but why bother?'" he said sarcastically.

"Democrats have to stop losing elections because the wrong people are in power," Bill Maher noted, before turning his attention to Donald Trump's Health Care Bill.

"The Senate unveiled their super secret health care bill," he continued, before adding, "like me after the show, it was hashed out behind closed doors." "Unveiled is not the right term. You unveil a sculpture. Nobody goes 'behold a turd,'" Maher said.

"Health care bill? More like a manifesto from the Zodiac killer," the comedian went on to say, before listing off what programs the Trumpcare bill cuts from, including preexisting conditions, Medicare, and Planned Parenthood. "Just for spite, it defunds Planned Parenthood.

No more gynecological exams, though Trump says he is still available to grab pu**ys," Bill Maher mockingly stated. "One group of Republican senators says they can't support it because it's not mean enough!" Maher pointed out, before taking a shot at Ted Cruz for leading the charge.

Moving forward

While Bill Maher and other high-profiled critics of the president continue to speak out, Donald Trump and his administration have been backed into a corner. As the Russian scandal heats up and the questions are raised over issues like health care and taxes, only time will tell how it all plays out.
