Bill Maher: Donald Trump's Campaign Is 'America's Inner Asshole'

"But we're not that guy any more."

Bill Maher says Donald Trump's presidential campaign is the "last dying gasp of the old America."

The "Real Time with Bill Maher" host said on Friday that the U.S. has "come a long way" since President Barack Obama took office in 2009.

Trump's a throwback to the old days, Maher said. "America's inner asshole. The macho screaming man baby, but we're not that guy any more."

So the comedian urged Obama to spend his last six months going on a "world apology tour" to make amends for all the harm America has intentionally and unintentionally done to other countries over the years.

Why? Firstly, "it will drive Republicans nuts," Maher said.

"And more importantly, to a world that has been trembling over the prospect of us electing Donald Trump, it would be a great way to send a message: 'America, we're back on our meds,'" he added.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
