In a speech in Memphis, Tennessee, on Saturday, Donald Trump denounced Fox News for booking liberal comedian Bill Maher as a guest, calling the network “dumb.”
Maher may have upset Mr. Trump and been on his mind by saying on air that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis would make a better Republican president than he would because “he’s not certified mad, that’s a good place to start.”
The comedian added, “You know what Ron DeSantis won’t do? He won’t tweet poo every day. It won’t be, like, having feuds with Bette Midler on Twitter. He’s not crazy.
Mr DeSantis is considered the Republican most likely to beat Trump in the 2024 nomination, although neither has yet confirmed he will run.
Maher also said Mr. Trump should be prosecuted for his role in inciting the Capitol riot with his false allegations of voter fraud — allegations that Mr. Trump knew the Jan. 6 hearings were without merit.
“I mean, yeah, if the guy robbed the liquor store, let’s see why he did that. But also, he needs to be arrested for robbing the liquor store,” Maher said.
However, the comedian also defended a disciplined NFL coach for calling the Capitol riot “dust” and criticized The Washington Post – a regular target of Mr Trump’s ire – for what he called “self-inflicted” Twitter drama involving public bickering between journalists.
Speaking in Memphis, the former president told supporters of Maher: “He’s a radical left-wing maniac with modest ratings. And as soon as he says something a little modest or temperate, Fox and others call him to explain – “oh look, Bill Maher, a lefty, Bill Maher says wonderful things”.
“They play straight into the enemy’s hand, it’s unbelievable. I’m sure he’s laughing like crazy how stupid they are.
“They fuck the enemy’s ass. And in this case, her ass isn’t particularly pretty.
Mr Trump was a Fox News favorite for most of his tenure, but fell out dramatically with the network when he became the first to call Arizona for Joe Biden during 2020 election coverage .
