Bill Maher Squares Off with Trump Supporter at Town Hall

"It’s a giant con, what he’s done."

Politically Incorrect host Bill Maher addressed a Donald Trump supporter during a CNN town hall with communist Van Jones, and he said everything that anyone familiar with Maher's routine would expect. 

Standing up with the microphone, the Trump supporter asked Maher why he wouldn't do just one thing: give the President some slack.  

"The president has been in office barely three weeks," said supporter. "Why can’t you guys in the media and Hollywood give him some slack?”"

"Because of what he’s done!" Maher angrily replied.

When the audience reminded Maher that "it’s only been three weeks," Maher let loose his opinion, calling Trump's presidency a "giant con."

"It’s a giant con, what he’s done," Maher said. "He ran for the ‘little man.’ And then what does he do? He gets into office, the coal companies can dump sludge in the river. Because, you know, that’s what the ‘little man’ is aching for.

"Undoing Dodd-Frank, because so many of the town halls in Appalachia, people were standing up and saying, ‘Mr. Trump, please get rid of the Volcker Rule, because if I can’t make certain speculative investments, it’s killing us here!'"

Maher continued by questioning Trump's sanity, calling him a dolt who "doesn't read."

"It’s beyond politics, it’s about sanity," he continued. "It’s about somebody who makes stuff up, who doesn’t read. His information is either anecdotal, or pulled out of his… behind."

If Bill Maher is angry, frustrated, and unhappy with what Trump has done so far, the President must be on the right track.
