So on Friday’s “Real Time,” the late night host suggested a solution.
“Moving forward, every previously unwritten rule about the presidency must be written down,” he told his audience. “If Donald Trump has taught everyone who ever dealt with him one thing, it’s get it in writing.”
Maher said the American people were “just the latest suckers” to learn that fact the hard way, and that Trump reminded him “that some people will break every rule that’s not specifically enumerated.”
“When you hire a babysitter, you write down a list of rules, ‘no boyfriend visits, no loud music, stay out of my greenhouse,’” Maher said. “But no one thinks you have to write down ‘don’t put the baby in the microwave.’ Well with Trump you do.”
