Legendary magician Penn Jillette stopped by HuffPost Live on Friday to talk politics, religion and his new book "Every Day Is an Atheist Holiday." Earlier this year, Jillette appeared on Season 5 of Celebrity Apprentice and spoke frankly (as he always does) about his experience on the show and his feelings about Donald Trump.
Jillette told hosts Alyona Minkovski and James Poulos that while he and Trump disagree on almost everything politically, he likes the Donald. "The more I've gotten to know him, the more I kind of respect him," Jillette said. "I kind of think he's really interesting... I've been this close to his hair and it's not a hair piece. It really is hair growing out of his head." He went on to call Trump a sexist, but he respects people like Donald who are unfiltered and true to themselves.
Later in the interview Jillette discusses atheism and how non-believers are the fastest growing religious group in the nation, calling the idea that elected officials are forced to swear to god "horrendous."
