Real Time host Bill Maher had a lot of fun during his monologue this week because he got to enjoy the fact that legal bombshells rained down on President Donald Trump this week.
Not only did former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort get convicted on eight counts, Trump’s former “fixer,” Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty and implicated Trump in two of the criminal counts. And that was just the tip of the iceberg as Maher would gleefully explain.
“I’m happy,” Maher began. Because the courts, the courts of law, where real shit happens, have finally confirmed what a lot of us have been thinking for a long time,” he said. “I’m not crazy, the president actually is a treasonous crook. You’ve heard of Black Friday? This week we had Orange Tuesday. They are rolling up the members of the Trump crime family.”
After noting that Paul Manafort had been convicted by a jury, Maher then listed off all the Trump associates who have turned on him, including Michael Cohen, Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, White House Counsel Don McGahn, and National Enquirer owner David Pecker.
“Even Pecker is not standing firm,” Maher quipped.
It’s so bad for Trump, he continued, that “cabinet meetings are now going to be held on visiting day at Leavenworth.”
Maher also pointed out that Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) and Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) have both been indicted for crimes, making him wonder who will be around to “lock up Hillary” if all the Republicans are in jail.
“If they lock up any more white Republicans the white NFL players are going to start taking a knee,” he said.

If you think this episode of Real Time was entertaining, just wait until Trump is impeached and prosecuted. It will be real party when that happens.
