After a week that included the worst mass shooting in American history, a trip to Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, and drama with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Donald Trump was forced to deal with a variety of issues. Commenting on these issues was Trump-critic and comedian Bill Maher.

Maher on Trump

The last seven days have been a trying time for Donald Trump and the White House. It started last Sunday night when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock fired down onto a crowd attending a Las Vegas country music festival. By the time law enforcement entered Paddock's room, he had already taken his own life, but not before killing 59 innocent civilians and injuring over 500.

In addition to the massacre in Las Vegas, Trump stopped in Puerto Rico following the hurricane, but came under fire due his remarks about the island's debt to the United States, while downplaying the death toll by comparing it to Hurricane Katrina back in 2005. To end the week, an NBC News report revealed that Rex Tillerson referred to Trump as a "f**king moron" during a heated exchange, though the White House has denied the reports. These issues, and more, were discussed during the October 6 edition of "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO.

Kicking off his routine opening monologue was Bill Maher, as the liberal comedian wasted no time ripping into Donald Trump.

"Let's get right to the disasters. Puerto Rico, Las Vegas, Donald Trump," Maher said, before adding, "We had a rough week and he doesn't make it better." Maher mocked the president for his trip to Puerto Rico, joking that, "The natives immediately said 'can we have the hurricane back.'" Maher then ripped Trump for focusing on the island's debt, noting, "he calls the mayor who is just asking for help, before throwing paper towels at the crowd." After pointing out that the billionaire real estate mogul downplayed the body count in Puerto Rico by saying it wasn't a "real catastrophe like Katrina," the host added, "You're not a real president, like Obama." "If we could somehow harness his entire ego, we could power the entire island," Maher stated.

Double down

Bill Maher then went on to highlight Donald Trump's stop in Vegas where he appeared to coddle the city with "thoughts and prayers." "I'm so sick of all the reactions. I'm so sick of 'thoughts and prayers," he added. At this point, Maher turned his attention to Trump's recent comment with military leaders where he warned of the "calm before the storm."

"Our dear leader had dinner with military leaders," he said, before adding, "Either he's gonna start a war or he ate too many prunes." In closing, the popular atheist cited the aforementioned NBC News reporting about the rift between Trump and Rex Tillerson, stating, "Rex Tillerson is so right.

Our top diplomat called him a moron and won't deny it. They dug a little deeper and he called him a "f**king moron."

Next up

While Bill Maher and others poke fun at Donald Trump, holding his feet to the fire in a serious manner in the process, the former host of "The Apprentice" is showing no signs of toning town his controversial style. Despite the president insisting that he has the support of the American people, the latest round of polling shows that more agree with Maher's mindset, with Trump sitting on just 35 percent approval rating.
