Last night, Australian comedian Jim Jefferies scorched Piers Morgan on Real Time With Bill Maher for claiming that there was no Muslim ban instituted by President Donald Trump. Jefferies and the show's host, Bill Maher, laid into Morgan for being an unapologetic supporter of Trump's controversial travel ban.
The exchange started near the end of the 60-minute program when Maher asked a question about the election. He wondered about critics calling former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton the "lesser of two evils" and demanded an apology in light of Trump's rocky first three weeks in office, which included a hastily issued executive order banning travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Morgan immediately jumped on Maher's apology demand and asked, "Why?" Incredulous, Maher pointed out that Hillary Clinton wouldn't have stacked her cabinet with the likes of Betsy DeVos and Rick Perry. Jefferies joined in and mentioned Trump's Muslim ban, and that's when things got really interesting.
