HBO host Bill Maher called President Trump a “traitor” Friday during an interview with former CIA Director John Brennan, questioning why others seem reluctant to label Trump as such.
During the interview, Maher ripped Trump for comments made during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which Trump appeared to side with Russia’s explanation for election interference over his own intelligence agencies.
“He takes their side and not ours. That’s a traitor,” Maher said.
“You (Brennan) used terms like that, after Helsinki, you said it was ‘nothing short of treasonous,’ which, to me, sounds like treasonous,” Maher added.
