HBO host Bill Maher came out swinging on Friday night in response to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh getting one step closer to being confirmed, and the FBI was his main target.
The FBI produced a pathetic report following a week long investigation that was hampered from the beginning by President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans because the law enforcement agency was barred from interviewing dozens of witnesses and could not follow certain leads.
Predictably, this watered down investigation was designed to clear Kavanaugh by default and give certain Senate Republicans, namely Senators Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), cover so they could claim they did their due diligence and vote to confirm him.
After receiving a hearty round of applause, Maher quipped that the cheering “lasted longer than the FBI investigation” before breaking the news to the audience that Kavanaugh is on his way to being a Supreme Court Justice.
“They’re going to do it, they’re going to confirm Justice Red Solo Cup,” Maher said in reference to Kavanaugh’s beer guzzling past and his declaration that he “loves beer” during his testimony last week. “And I’m going to join the Beach Week Ralph Club.”
“Now the big question: Where does beer go to get his reputation back,” Maher continued before getting back to ripping the FBI by showing video of Trump boarding Air Force One with what appeared to be toilet paper on his shoe.
“One, the toilet paper was very embarrassed,” he said. “And two, that is the FBI report on his shoe.”
Maher pointed out that the report is a “total sham” because Kavanaugh is a “liar and a drunk” before going on to note that Senate Republicans wanted to keep it so secret that they made only one copy and gave each senator only a little bit of time to read it in a small room.
“This is how you run a train on Democracy, ladies and gentlemen,” he said.
