In typical fashion, HBO's Bill Maher has weighed in on President Donald Trump's ongoing Twitter feud with "Morning Joe" cohosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. “'Morning Joe' is in a Twitter feud with the Real Housewife of Pennsylvania Avenue. So let’s get right to that,” he said at the start of Friday night's episode of "Real Time."
Maher joked he learned one thing from President Trump this week: “You can never be too rich to be white trash.”
Impersonating Trump’s voice, Maher continued, “‘Mika Brzezinski, you do crazy things to delay aging,’ says the man who glues dryer lint to his head. Donnie, you’re so unattractive Melania won’t even touch your hand.”
Maher didn't leave it there, adding, "If you're going to go after a woman's appearance, first make sure you're not a fat old man with orange face paint, pretending to be a blond at the age of 71."
Maher was referring to Trump's tweet claiming Brzezinski was "bleeding badly" from a face-lift at his most recent New Year's Eve party – an allegation the "Morning Joe" co-hosts denounced as an absolute lie in the Washington Post: "Mr. Trump also claims that Mika was “bleeding badly from a face-lift.” That is also a lie. Putting aside Mr. Trump’s never-ending obsession with women’s blood, Mika and her face were perfectly intact, as pictures from that night reveal."
Maher also suggested that "whoever is doing the babysitting lately" should get Trump a toy smart phone designed for toddlers.
"This way he can tweet all night long and nobody will really see it," he joked. "Plus it's rated for 18 months and up, which means there are no small parts he can choke on."
The two television hosts attacked by Trump questioned the Republican leader's mental health on Friday and accused him of trying to exert pressure on them over unfavorable coverage, calling it blackmail. The resulting Twitter feud has been raging ever since.
