Bill Maher Looks At Sarah Palin & Pope Francis' Heated Twitter War

11/18/2013 03:34 pm ET

Sarah Palin made headlines last week after an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, where she said that some of Pope Francis' statements sounded "kind of liberal." Palin has since apologized, explaining that her point was about not trusting the media.

Ok, sure, why not?

But if you get your news from Bill Maher, then you know that the story was much more incendiary than a poorly worded comment followed by an apology. In the world of "Real Time," Palin's gaffe led to a heated twitter war between the Pontiff and the former Governor/VP candidate.

Watch Maher's fanciful take on the war of characters that didn't actually ensue ensued above.
