Great job by Maher.

Somehow he managed to shoe-horn every Trump joke into the nearly 8 minute editorial ...

I'm sure Trump was left wondering if Maher was serious or goofing on him -- lol

Maher Appeals Directly to Trump's Ego to Act on Climate Change: Picture the Headline Trump Saves Earth!'

www.mediaite.com

Bill Maher's New Rule segment tonight zeroed in on climate change, and the HBO comedian took the opportunity to appeal directly to President Donald Trump's legendary vanity to beg him to reverse his stance denying the reality of man-made climate change: "Imagine the headlines: Trump Saves Earth!'"

Maher linked his direct plea for Trump to the latest news about climate change, which includes the massive wildfires blazing through the Amazon rainforest, widespread melting of the ice caps, and a new United Nations Intergovernmental Climate Change report that concluded our landmasses are increasingly unable to sustain humanity.


Brilliant job by Maher.

Awesome rant by Mahr. I actually hope Trump hears it, he might take it seriously and do what Mahr asks. I too would vote for him if he did.

Good idea, but unfortunately Mahr burned his political capital with years of anti-right and now anti-Trump rants. Had he not done that, his chances might be better at gaining influence.

Trump is more likely to heed advice from right wing commentators. Mahr should focus on convincing them, but admittedly, he faces a similar problem.

It seems very disingenous to bash someone for years, then get all lovey dovey and expect support for an idea.

I'm not saying Mahr is wrong, I'm just saying he's done too much damage to his own brand to be taken seriously by Trump.

Mahr was ridiculing Trump by pretending to praise him.

Great line: "Don't buy Greenland. SAVE Greenland," which is melting at a record pace.
