‘Welcome to Apprentice, Nuclear Edition’: Bill Maher blasts Trump for making presidency a TV show

Comedian and host of HBO’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher blasted Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey on Friday night, comparing it to a scene from Trump’s reality TV game show, “The Apprentice.”

After declaring “TGIF after a week of WTF,” Maher laid into the firing of FBI Director Comey and the White House’s ever shifting rarionale.

“It seems like there was a year’s worth of news stuffed into one week,” Maher said.

The president “fired the man that was investigating him,” he continued. “How would you like to be able to do that? A cop pulls you over, ‘You’re under arrest, sir.’ Oh, yeah? You’re fired.”

Maher went on to point out how Trump contradicted all of his spokespeople’s previous reasons for the firing when he went on Lester Holt’s show and said that it was all his idea and that he would have fired Comey with or without his Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General’s recommendation.
