Bill Maher Mimics Sexual Gesture Involving Ivanka and Donald Trump

May 8, 2017

Bill Maher made a sexually charged joke about Ivanka Trump and her father President Donald Trump during Friday night's "Real Time" on HBO, the New York Post reports.

While talking with New York magazine writer Gabriel Sherman, Maher mentioned how many liberals felt Ivanka's influence over the White House would be a "saving grace."

"When he's about to fucking nuke Finland or something, she's going to walk into the bedroom and, you know, 'Daddy,'" Maher said in a lilting voice, using his hand to mimic giving a handjob. "Daddy. Don't do it, Daddy."

The crowd laughed, while Sherman appeared uncomfortable over Maher's remarks.

The incest joke stems from unusual remarks Trump has made in the past about his eldest daughter. He said in 2006 that if Ivanka were not his daughter, "perhaps I'd be dating her."

Maher had Sherman on his show to discuss, among other things, "misogyny at Fox News." Sherman wrote The Loudest Voice in the Room, a 2014 bestseller about former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, who resigned last year amid a swarm of sexual harassment allegations.

Maher's jab is the latest in a series of crude jokes from late-night satirists regarding Trump. CBS host Stephen Colbert said last week that Trump's mouth served as Vladimir Putin's "cock holster," sparking criticism that his comment was vulgar and homophobic.
