Maher destroyed the Republican presidential nominee in his “Whiny Little Bitch” standup event using his sometimes-obscene shtick to sum up the sentiments of many Americans before Tuesday’s election.
“I hope when we look back on this, Trump is going to be like Y2K. Right? We thought it was gonna be a disaster. We shit our pants. But then it was a bunch of nothing.”
He called Trump a racist, a liar, a tax cheat and a draft dodger, among other things. “These are red flags,” he quipped.
Watch the gig above. The performance doesn’t actually start until two minutes into the video, so you might want to skip ahead. But don’t miss the rest. It’s solid.
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.
