"If Donald Trump keeps insisting that he's the 'least racist person anyone has ever met,' he has to explain why the single most consistent thing in his whole life is he loves to pick fights with black people," he said on his show, "Real Time with Bill Maher."

"Of all his myriad insanities, if I had to pick one line for his tombstone it would be: 'Here lies Donald Trump; picked fights with black people,' " Maher quipped.

"I could continue this list, but we'd be here through the end of February, which is Black History Month, or as Trump likes to say, 'All Months Matter,' " Maher said. 

Trump has repeatedly faced accusations of racism, most recently after allegations emerged that he demanded in a meeting with lawmakers and administration officials to know why the U.S. should admit immigrants from "shithole countries," such as Haiti and African nations, and called for more immigrants from countries like Norway.

Trump denied that he made those comments, telling reporters earlier this month that he is "not a racist" and that he is "the least racist person you have ever interviewed."
