Comedian Bill Maher returned to his HBO show, "Real Time with Bill Maher," Friday after a monthlong vacation and didn't let up on the controversial jokes he's so well known for. This time he mocked a 9-year-old's letter to President Donald Trump that was read at a White House media briefing.
Thank you Dylan (aka Pickle) for your letter to @POTUS! We hope to meet you soon! https://t.co/RtTb6KtsZN— Sarah H. Sanders (@Sarah H. Sanders)1501099789.0
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read the letter from Dylan "Pickle" Harbin and posted it on her social media account online.
Maher's commentary on the letter centered on some of the spelling errors included in the letter.
"This is more of an indictment of the educational system of America," Maher said. "I don't blame the kid. They haven't taught him 'is' at the age of 9?"
He added, "They owe this kid an apology."
Maher then made up a fake letter that he sarcastically said Harbin also wrote.
"Do you like your boss Mr. Putin? When I drink too much milk I get in troubl (sic) for pootin (sic) too," he read.
"When you beat up on real Mexicans does candy come out?" he continued. "How much money do you have? If only there were some way to find out."
Maher was recently criticized for his use of the "n-word" on his show in a joke with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.). He later apologized and discussed at length on his show why the word was so offensive to the black community.
