Liberal author Fran Lebowitz went to the extreme Friday night during an appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” suggesting that President Trump should not only be impeached but killed.
Lebowitz began by saying she felt “plagued” by Trump’s presidency and “shocked” by what she claimed was criminal behavior by Attorney General William Barr over his handling of the Mueller report.
The article goes on to state the following:
But when she was asked about impeachment, Lebowitz did not think that was enough punishment for the president, who has not been charged with any crimes.
“Certainly, he deserves to be impeached. I mean, impeachment is just the beginning of what he deserves. Not even scratching the surface of what he deserves,” Lebowitz said. “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, ‘We should turn him over to the Saudis, you know, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter, you know. Maybe they can do the same for him.'”

Her remarks, which drew some applause from Maher’s studio audience in Los Angeles, was in reference to the 2018 murder of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi, who is believed to have been tortured and dismembered with a bone saw, purportedly under the orders of the Saudi government. During the show’s “Overtime” segment, however, Lebowitz said the “Real Time” producers told her that her remarks were getting blowback on social media, which prompted her to walk them back.
“I saw your face when I said it. I didn’t even realize that I said it. I had twelve cups of coffee,” Lebowitz told Maher. “I regret saying it.”
