Bill Maher has never been one to keep his opinions to himself, and during an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Friday, he had one takeaway piece of advice for President Obama: "Stop trying to make everyone like you."

"He's got to understand that with the Republicans, it's not the entree they don't like. They don't like the waiter," Maher told Leno when pressed on his reaction to Obama's jobs speech.

"You could give all the money to the rich, and they would still call you a socialist," Maher said.

Maher admitted that he was impressed by Obama's speech, but is interested to see how the president will follow through and put his plan into action.

He went on to eviscerate other current political topics: excessive military spending ("Phil Spector has killed more people than [an expensive] plane"), Speechgate ("Say to John Boehner, 'Hey, Leatherface, guess who's in charge!'"), Rick Perry ("Here's a guy who has a terrible drought in his state, and literally asked people to pray for rain, and now the state's on fire"), and then concluded by rattling off some of his trademark New Rules.

Check out the two-part clip of Maher talking to Leno, a far cry from last week's sit-down with Dick Cheney and Carrot Top.
