Bill Maher cannot understand why the Republican Party doesn’t see the insanity of President Donald Trump.
“Republican principles’ no longer have any meaning,” Maher explained. “Since Trump got elected, they’ve pulled utter 180s… when Obama signed executive orders it was ‘proof we were being governed by a lawless tyrant.’ Now Trump does it and he proudly displays them like he’s ‘The Price is Right’ girl.”
He went on to mock Trump’s hypocrisy on calling out Obama for his vacations, when Trump has already taken two times the amount of vacation Obama did.
“Oh come on, wouldn’t you be furious if Obama had said, the ‘White House is a dump’? Or whatever ridiculous thing Trump said? Nope. They never admit it,” Maher said. “We’d be cool with it. We’re consistent, he imagined they’d say.”
That’s when Maher came up with his brilliant idea: “What if I could actually show Republicans what it would look like if Obama had said some of the things that Trump has said?” Maher asked.
So he hired Barack Obama impersonator Reggie Brown to come to the show and repeat phrases Trump has said over the last few years—like the time he bashed Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for being a prisoner of war: “He’s not a war hero! He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
Maher said that not only would Obama not have been elected, but the screen would have gone black and he would have been replaced by Wayne Brady.
“I’m speaking with myself,” Reggie Brown quoted Trump: “Number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.”
Or the time Trump said, “Sorry, losers and haters, my IQ is one of the highest and you all know it.”
