Bill Maher Slams David Koch And Donald Trump -- Did 'Real Time' Comedian Go Too Far?
Saying that Real Time host Bill Maher is not a fan of David Koch would be an understatement. In the last episode of the HBO show, the comedian had a few harsh words for Donald Trump and some even harsher comments for Koch.
Koch, a billionaire Republican megadonor, died at age 79 after a long battle with cancer.
Maher had this to say: “Yesterday David Koch, of the zillionaire Koch brothers, died of prostate cancer. I guess I’m going to have to re-evaluate my low opinion of prostate cancer. He was 79, but his family says they wish he could live longer… but at least he lived long enough to see the Amazon catch fire.”
He went on to reveal: “Condolences poured in from all the politicians he owned, and mourners have been asked in lieu of flowers to just leave their car engines running. As for his remains, he’s been asked to be cremated and have his ashes blown into a child’s lungs.”
The comedian concluded by saying he does not care about people's opinion: “I know these may seem like harsh words and harsh jokes, and I’m sure I will be condemned for them on Fox News, which will portray Mr. Koch as a principled libertarian who believed in the free market. He and his brother have done more than anybody to fund climate-science deniers for decades, so f–k him! The Amazon is burning up. I’m glad he’s dead, and I hope the end was painful.”
He also shared his thoughts on Trump's odd feud with Denmark over the European's nation refusal to sell Greenland.
A fan said this: "OMG @billmaherpersonal address to Trump on last night’s show was THE BEST!!! I laughed so hard I was silent with tears running down my cheeks! I laugh just thinking about it! I bet it will work! 😬 #awesome #hilarious.😂"
A critic stated: "Trump trump trump trump trump trump trump. Your whole life is about trump. Every waking thought is of trump. Trump trump trump trump. The whole show about trump. All you can think about is trump. Trump trump trump. This is called trump derangement syndrome. Go get some help man you have lost it. You are obsessed with DJT, and it is ruining your life. Liberalism is a mental disorder that is eating away your mind. The man will be re-elected in 2020 are you really going to spend the entire 8 years spazzing on the floor like a damn 2-year-old?."
Maher does not hold back.
