Bill Maher: Trump’s Immigration Plan Is Hypocrisy! (VIDEO)

Bill Maher said on his HBO show Friday that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s foreign spouse makes his immigration policy hypocrisy.

Trump’s immigration plan includes building a wall between the United States and Mexico and stopping a federal practice that automatically allows citizenship to those born in the country.

“Nobody brings this up about Donald Trump, who is always on about, ‘We can’t have foreigners coming into this country.’ His first wife is from Czechoslovakia. His current wife is from Slovenia,” Maher said on his program. “So, if you think crawling under a wall is the most disgusting way to become an American, somewhere there is a Panamanian woman hiding in a truck full of chickens with ten pounds of heroin-filled condoms in her stomach who’s thinking, ‘Well, at least I didn’t have to blow Donald Trump.'”

But, Maher said, Trump’s comments on immigration excited Fox News viewers.

“Yes, Donald Trump, America’s great Irish hope, unveiled his immigration plan this week — and it is yuge,” Maher said on his program. “It’s a three-point plan called Cinco de Bye-o. Here are the plans: repeal the 14th amendment, seize the wages of illegal immigrants who are working here, use that money to build a wall, and then deport all 11 million of them. Is any of this possible? No. But it gave millions of Fox News viewers their first erection in years.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
