Maher took note of how Trump criticized Obama for taking a 17-day vacation. Back in 2013, Trump tweeted: “Pres. Obama is about to embark on a 17 day vacation in his ‘native’ Hawaii, putting Secret Service away from families on Christmas. Aloha!”
Meanwhile, Trump has “made 41 visits to golf clubs since his inauguration (which has cost taxpayers nearly $56 million), and he recently embarked on a 17-day vacation to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.”
Maher hired an Obama impersonator to point out Trump’s White privledge as the reason why Republicans refuse to admit to this apparent hypocrisy.
“Now that you’ve made facts optional and changed the status of truth to unknowable, what’s next?” he challenged Republicans on Friday’s episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher.” “Hypocrisy used to be a thing – is it still?”

Impersonator Reggie Brown appeared during the segment to deliver some of Trump’s most memorable lines.
“And I stress, this may not be the real Obama, but these are really Trump’s words, every one of them verbatim.”
Brown’s Trump quotes included the time 45 asked why he needed to ask God for forgiveness if he never made mistakes, and the time he claimed “nobody knew healthcare was so complicated,” and who can forget the time Trumop revealed to not knowing who Frederick Douglass was.
There’s also the time Trump reminded the “losers and haters” that his IQ is one of the highest, and bragging “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”
“Headline in the New York Post,” Maher interjected, “‘Black Man Threatens Shooting Spree, Gunned Down By Police.'”

“Look, I don’t know the exact definition of white privilege is,” Maher says in the clip, “but being able to talk about grabbing pussies and how big your dick is, and still getting elected president – that’s gotta come close.”
