Bill Maher's observation about the Trump administration and the NRA is absolutely brutal

Earlier this week, Hope Hicks became the latest person to leave the Donald Trump administration.

The 29-year-old was Trump's longest-serving aide but she quit in peculiar circumstances after being interviewed as part of the House Intelligence Committee.

She had reportedly been considering leaving her post for several months, but she did reveal that part of her job is to tell "white lies" for the President.

Her departure was the main focus for Bill Maher's monologue on Friday night's episode of Real Time with Bill Maher.

The comedian and political commentator really went to town on the story, which was just one element of another chaotic week in the White House.

62-year-old Maher detailed elements of Hicks' job, some of which may or may not be true, and her relationship with Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

Maher jokes:

Also on her resume, she used to date Corey Lewandowski, who was Trump’s campaign manager and married at the time, and then she dated Rob Porter, who had to leave the White House earlier in the month in a wife-beating scandal.

You know, I’m not that familiar with soap operas, but I think in the next episode Trump gets amnesia and Mike Pence reveals he’s a woman. I think that’s what happens.

Maher also touched on the scandal surrounding Jared Kushner, the husband of Ivanka Trump, whose security clearance at the White House was downgraded earlier this week, as well as reports that he has run into considerable debt.

He also mentioned the ongoing debate surrounding gun control quipping:

All this chaos makes it very difficult for the NRA to run the country.
