Bill Maher Questions Paul Manafort’s Light Jail Sentence: ‘The White Guy Discount’ (Video)

The Wrap Saturday, 9 March 2019 ()
Bill Maher ripped into Paul Manafort on Friday, joking in his “Real Time” opening monologue that the former Trump presidential campaign chair received “the white guy discount” when he was sentenced to 47 months in prison on Thursday.

“He got off pretty easy, the sentencing guidelines said he was supposed to get 19 to 24 years — he got four,” Maher noted. “I haven’t seen a Trump supporter get off that much since Robert Kraft went to that massage parlor in Florida.”

And Maher wasn’t done needling the former Trump operative who got caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. “I don’t know if Manafort has learned his lesson. His first question was, ‘Does the jumpsuit come in ostrich?'”

Elsewhere in the monologue, Maher joked about Bill Shine, the former Fox News co-president who resigned this week as White House deputy chief of staff for communications.

“Bill Shine is Trump’s fifth — he’s had five communications directors,” Maher said. “This guy used to run Fox News, apparently he can’t get along with Trump either.”

Then he added, “He is going to be moving over to Trump’s campaign reelection headquarters, so he’s moving to Moscow.”

Surprisingly, Maher went light on jokes about President Trump and his flag-hugging performance at the Conservative Political Action Conference — though he did note the two hour, 20-minute running time of the president’s speech to the far-right group.

“There were kids born at the beginning of this speech, who by the end of it were dating R. Kelly,” Maher joked.

Watch the full monologue above.
