VIDEO: Bill Maher Says That Trump is on His Way to Becoming Dictator
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) visited REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER on February 8. Schiff talked to Bill about his actions as Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee and President Trump's refusal to release the Democrats' memo.
Also with Trump's announcement this week that he'd love a military parade, Maher crossed one more item off his dictator to-do list he unveiled on an episode last season. Trump has one more box to check before he reaches the dictator title, according to Maher.
"It's pretty scary," Maher said. "You lie so freely that people don't know what the truth is anymore. The last one, THE ONE he hasn't done? Military costume."
"That's the day I have to resign," quipped panelist April Ryan, White House correspondent for the American Urban Radio Network.

Real Time with Bill Maher is a talk show that airs weekly on HBO, hosted by comedian and political satirist Bill Maher. Much like his previous series Politically Incorrect on Comedy Central and later ABC, Real Time features a panel of guests who discuss current events in politics and the media. Unlike the previous show, guests are usually more well-versed in the subject matter: more experts such as journalists, professors and politicians participate in the panel, and fewer actors and celebrities are included. Additionally, many guests appear via satellite.
Real Time is a weekly hour-long program with a studio audience, airing live on Friday nights at 10:00 pm EST. It originates from Studio 33 ("The Bob Barker Studio") at CBS Television City in Los Angeles. In addition, a 10- to 15-minute "Overtime" segment quickly follows the show on Youtube (Live Streams) which answers questions posted by viewers through HBO's online website for the show. Prior to 2009, approximately 12 new weekly episodes aired from February to early May, followed by another such set of new episodes from late August to November. In 2009, the show began airing as one continuous season.
HBO has renewed the series for three seasons, set to air through 2020.
