On Friday night show ‘Real Time With Bill Maher,’ Bill Maher had no time in lampooning President Joe Biden following the man’s recent performance in a debate format. Looking back at the debate, in his monologue, Maher said that Trump lied and lied and lied.

"Trump told lie after lie, after lie. He never would have gotten away with that if Joe Biden was there," Maher commented. Taking the verbal warfare to a whole new level, Maher said, "I don’t want to say he shit the bed, but his new Secret Service name is Amber Heard," something that made the audience break a laugh as the New York Post recorded.

Biden's Hesitations Mocked

Maher also laughed at Biden and other Democrat’s regular hesitations and episodes of confusion. "You know Joe, he famously loves trains but apparently not of thought," he said that as if trying to lampoon Biden, whose efforts to sustain a stream of thoughts during the debate greatly faltered.

"I mean it’s just all night, confused and halting and trailing off - I’ve seen beauty pageant contestants answer questions better," Maher said. There are common criticisms that the comedian also pointed earlier to the weak moments of Biden, notably his age, and how it is going to affect the showdown with Trump.

"I would vote for [Biden’s] head in a jar of blue liquid over Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean that I’m - first of all, I think it’s a moot point at this point. He’s going to fucking lose," Maher said in a Club Random podcast with journalist Kara Swisher, according to The Hill.

Still, Maher is also far from a Biden supporter; the comedian was quite critical of Trump as well. Their enmity began in 2013 when Maher was a guest on 'The Tonight Show' when he challenged Trump to produce his birth certificate to show that his father was an orangutan, and Maher will pay him $5 million.

This led to Trump presenting his birth certificate and subsequently taking Maher to court for the agreed amount of $5 million and, in return, created a decade-long feud between the two.
