"What kind of spectacular prick do you have to be that everyone’s last request is 'Make sure that asshole isn’t at my funeral'?" Maher asked.
I thought, maybe if Trump could hear what a eulogy for him would sound like, maybe that would give him some insight into himself – so I prepared a modest example for him. #TrumpEulogy #FakeFuneral #FlyWhinyLittleBitchFly pic.twitter.com/ExlTJXcafL— Bill Maher (@billmaher) August 8, 2020
The comedian said that he was moved by the eulogies delivered as Lewis’s funeral last week, calling him “a model of a man.”
“Then I thought of Trump, and I actually felt sad for him because at his funeral nobody is going to talk about him like that,” Maher said, emphasizing that he wishes Trump “a long healthy life in some place where he can’t harm America.”
He went on to deliver a mock eulogy for Trump, addressing the “family and frenemies of Donald Trump.”
The satirical eulogy went on to paint Trump as a man who “never once failed to put himself before others.”
“Some men look at the world and ask, ‘Why?’ Donald Trump looked at the world and asked, ‘What’s in it for me?’” Maher said. “His generosity knew only limits, and he never once failed to put himself before others.”
