Introducing her as “my good frenemy,” Bill Maher welcomed far-right pundit—and outspoken racist—Ann Coulter to his Real Time program Friday night. And the timing, at least as far as Maher is concerned, couldn’t have been any better, given that Coulter had not only advised President Trump to shut down the government in order to fund his border wall pet project but called him out when he caved, branding her former idol “the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States.”
For the viewers at home, however, it wasn’t so great.
Coulter began by railing against Trump breaking “the promise he made every day for eighteen months” and, when sarcastically queried by Maher as to what “her first clue” was that Trump was “a lying conman,” she laughed.
