Bill Maher Thanks Donald Trump For Exposing 'Hypocritical' Evangelicals

"It’s hard to bring up the Ten Commandments when your candidate has spent most his life breaking all of them."

Bill Maher actually praised Donald Trump on Friday. Kind of.

The “Real Time” host is no fan of the GOP presidential nominee, but he said voters should actually thank the brash businessman for “the one good thing he did” in this presidential election — exposing evangelicals, who are big Trump supporters, as “the shameless hypocrites they’ve always been.”

“I don’t know if you noticed but Republicans didn’t get to play the ‘Jesus card’ this time around,” said Maher. “It’s hard to bring up the Ten Commandments when your candidate has spent most his life breaking all of them.”

Maher then amusingly detailed just some of the times that Trump has broken the commandments — from stealing, adultery, cursing, bearing false witness and worshipping false idols.

“He is the world’s least Godly man,” quipped Maher. “Jesus saw the good in whores and lepers, but if he met Donald Trump he’d say ‘sorry man, but that’s a pre-existing condition.’”

Check out Maher’s full monologue in the clip above.

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