Trump and Bill Maher Trade Barbs After Trump Says ‘Wacko Comedian’ Tells ‘So Many Lies’

President Donald Trump took a verbal swipe at Bill Maher Saturday, calling the “Real-Time” host a “wacko comedian” whose HBO show tells “so many lies.”

“Got to see, by accident, wacko comedian Bill Maher’s show — So many lies,” the POTUS tweeted on Saturday afternoon in a series of tweets defending his recent trip to El Paso, Texas, and plans for a vacation this month. Maher soon responded in his own tweet, “I’m curious, how do you see a TV show ‘by accident’?” Trump took issue with a swipe that Maher took Friday night at the president’s trip to an El Paso, Texas, hospital to visit the injured from the mass shooting at a local mall that left 21 dead and dozens injured. “None of the eight patients in the El Paso hospital would agree to meet with Trump, isn’t that something?” Maher said in his monologue. “They were all asked would you like to meet the president, they all said, ‘I’ll Paso.'”
