Over the last week, Donald Trump has faced various issues ranging from the important like the ongoing Russian investigation and handling an Islamic terrorist attack, to minor blips like having his Twitter account briefly suspended. While most people appear to have opinions on these issues, comedian Bill Maher made sure to make his known.

Maher on Trump

Ever since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States, he's been hit with an onslaught of criticism from the majority of the mainstream media and his political opponents.

However, recent polling shows that most Americans believe that Trump has brought the issues on himself, especially pertaining to the Russian scandal and his constant outbursts on social media. Over the last week, special counsel to the Russian investigation, Robert Mueller, officially filed the first round of charges against former members of the Trump campaign. As expected, the former host of "The Apprentice" has denied any wrongdoing, despite the evidence that has been presented. In addition, the president found himself without access to his Twitter account for 11 minutes on Thursday, causing the social media platform to go viral in celebration. As the president heads off for his longest foreign trip since taking office, Bill Maher decided to sound off during the November 3 edition of "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO.

Kicking off his show with his opening monologue, Bill Maher wasted no time ripping into Donald Trump over his bad week.

"I know why you're happy," Maher said to the audience, before adding, "Trump has left the country." "Trump has left the country. I feel lighter already. This must be how parents feel when they send their kids off to summer camp," Maher stated. "It's a 12 day trip to Asia and someone asked Trump 'who's in charge when you're gone?,' and he asked, 'who's in charge when I'm here?'" Maher went on to say.

Bill Maher then shifted his focus to the Russian investigation and the recent indictments against members of the Donald Trump campaign. "Did you at least have a good Halloween," Maher rhetorically asked. "I don't know what you gave the kids this Halloween, but over at Robert Mueller's house they were handing out indictments," he noted. The liberal host went on to list the charges against former campaign manager Paul Manafort, before saying, "Trump said he was gonna drain the swamp and then he hires the Creature from the Black Lagoon."

Maher on Trump's tweets

Concluding his opening remarks, Bill Maher brought up Donald Trump's brief time without a Twitter account when a rogue employee suspended it during his last say on the job. "A Twitter employee deleted Trump’s Twitter account for 11 minutes," he said, while stating, "I only have one thing to say: Thank you for your service."
