Bill Maher Under Fire For Lewd Donald–Ivanka Trump Incest Joke

Ashley Hoffman

Bill Maher is under major scrutiny for the lewd incest jokes he made on Friday night about Ivanka Trump and her father, President Donald Trump. On his HBO show, Real Time with Bill Maher, the political commentator prodded at Trump's close relationship with his daughter Ivanka Trump, according to the Daily Mail.

The 61-year-old political commentator sat with New York Magazine reporter, Gabriel Sherman, and joked about first daughter's efforts to "humanize" her father, President Donald Trump.

"What do you make of Ivanka and her efforts to sort of humanize her father? We see all this misogyny at Fox News, we see it in Donald Trump himself. A lot of us thought, Ivanka is gonna be our saving grace."
"When he's about to nuke Finland or something, she's gonna walk into the bedroom and—'Daddy, Daddy…'Don't do it, Daddy.'"

"Be nice to Ivanka, she's our only hope—because she seems like she actually knows rationality, but she's [Trump's] kid, and she's the only one who can get to him, and you know he loves her."
"If he's going to do something nutty, we're going to depend on Ivanka going into that bedroom. "Daddy, Daddy! You have to apologize for that tweet where you called Angela Merkela a 'c***.' You have to apologize, Daddy!"'

The network blurred Colbert's mouth, and the controversial terms were bleeped during airing, "The only thing [Trump's] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin's c*** holster." The FCC's response will depend on whether Colbert's remarks are considered "obscene," according to The Hill. If so, the broadcaster would be penalized.

"We are going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it's been set out by the Supreme Court and other courts and we'll take the appropriate action.

"We review all consumer complaints as a matter of standard practice and rely on the law to determine whether action is warranted. The fact that a complaint is reviewed doesn't speak one way or another as to whether it has any merit... I have had a chance to see the clip now and so, as we get complaints — and we've gotten a number of them."
"Traditionally, the agency has to decide, if it does find a violation, what the appropriate remedy should be... A fine, of some sort, is typically what we do."
