The liberal host of HBO’s “Real Time” Bill Maher, crossed a line when he joked on Friday’s show that Ivanka Trump and her father, President Donald Trump, have an incestuous relationship.
While bantering with New York Magazine reporter Gabriel Sherman, Maher said, “A lot of us thought: Ivanka is gonna be our saving grace. When he’s about to f**kin’ nuke Finland or something, she’s gonna walk into the bedroom and, you know, —‘Daddy, Daddy…’” using a lewd hand gesture, he mimicked Ivanka while he mocked her, saying, “‘Don’t do it, Daddy.’”
Appearing to be embarrassed and uncomfortable by Maher’s comments, Sherman said that he doesn’t share Maher’s sentiments and tried to steer the conversation elsewhere, saying, “I think, again, she’s on the margins trying to save us — to the degree that she can — but Donald Trump doesn’t listen to anybody, including his own family.”
Undeterred, Maher continued to double-down on his filthy comments. “Be nice to Ivanka, she’s our only hope — because she seems like she actually knows rationality, but she’s [Trump’s] kid, and she’s the only one who can get to him, and you know he loves her. If he’s going to do something nutty, we’re going to depend on Ivanka going into that bedroom.”
People on Twitter expressed their outrage at Maher’s poor taste:
