Bill Maher makes incest joke about Donald and Ivanka

Bill Maher cracked a crass incest joke about President Trump’s close relationship with daughter Ivanka on Friday night — but the resulting outrage was limited to a few grumbles on Twitter and scattered news websites.

“A lot of us thought: Ivanka is gonna be our saving grace,” the host of HBO’s “Real Time” said during an interview with New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman.

“When he’s about to nuke Finland or something, she’s gonna walk into the bedroom and — ‘Daddy, Daddy,’” Maher cooed, making a lewd hand gesture. “‘Don’t do it, Daddy.’”

By Saturday night, a few Twitter users had tsk-tsked, as did a few news websites.

“Ivanka Trump is a problematic, puzzling figure,” Marlow Stern wrote Saturday in thedailybeast.com.

“But if liberals are going to castigate Donald Trump for his boorish, sexist behavior, they shouldn’t behave in a similar fashion.”

“Lewd jokes are a waste of time and say much worse about the men telling them,” wrote Lindsey Ellefson of Mediaite.com.

Ellefson’s piece noted that conservative Jesse Watters of Fox News suffered far more recriminations for saying, “I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone” — a remark he later insisted was not sexual innuendo.
