From Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO:

On Melania Trump’s visit to a detention center on the U.S.-Mexico border:

“They had a camera in there and all you heard was ‘Please help. I want to go home’ and finally one of the kids said ‘Pull yourself together lady.’”

On President Trump and separating children from parents on the U.S.-Mexico border:

“This is the week that we found out that there is a place most Republicans will not follow this president: kidnapping children.”

“He is the guy that congratulates himself for saving the toddler in the pool that he pushed in.”
