Maher's Crude Joke About Ivanka And Donald Trump Isn't Sitting Well With Anyone

Liberal political pundit Bill Maher is always making jokes about the Trumps, but he took one joke just a bit too far on Friday. Even some of his fans have called him out for the rude comment, which was seen by many as crossing the line. Maher is unapologetic.

On Friday night's episode of Maher's HBO show, "Real Time," Maher interviewed Gabriel Sherman of New York Magazine. The magazine never displayed much love for President Donald Trump, but even Sherman wouldn't go where Maher went.

“What do you make of Ivanka and her efforts to sort of humanize her father?" Maher asked his guest. "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,’” he said while making crude hand gestures, miming Ivanka performing a sexual act on her father.

“Is that how you see Ivanka?” Maher asked.

Sherman uncomfortably replied, "No."

Twitter users didn't react well to the offensive comment and gestures. Marlow Stern, the Senior Entertainment Editor for The Daily Beast, has no love for Trump, but even he tweeted that Maher went overboard.

"Bill Maher crossed the line tonight with his Ivanka Trump incest joke," said Stern.

David Shuster, an MSNBC anchor, echoed the sentiments. "Bill Maher is smart and incredibly talented. But the incest joke about Ivanka Trump was way over the line," he said.

Maher has remained unapologetic for the comments. Considering shocking comments is Maher's bread and butter, it's unlikely he'll admit that it was a low blow.

Many of Maher's fans are backing the talk show host as well. One Twitter fan said that 'EVERYONE has been joking about trump's wanting to bang Ivanka'.

During an interview with the women of The View, Trump once said he thought Ivanka was a beautiful young woman, and that if he wasn't her father, he would date her.
