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.”
