While speaking at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” joked about assassinating GOP nominee Donald Trump.  Naturally, his audience laughed…

“I’m nervous with this election,” he said. “And I saw the headline today: ‘Race tightening, Trump ahead in Ohio and Florida’. If this race is even the week before the election, somebody is going to have to go out there … Why do you think they let Hinckley out?”

Hinckley, the Wrap notes, “attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in the early 1980s, reportedly to impress Hollywood actress Jodie Foster. On Sept. 10, Hinckley was released from institutional psychiatric care to live with his mother.”

Here’s audio of his “joke” — notice the audience’s reaction:

Breitbart added:

Maher has repeatedly gone after Trump on his HBO program during this election season, including joking about the candidate’s death during a segment in March. The talk show host previously compared Trump to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Despite his apparent disdain for Trump, Maher predicted in February that Democrats could lose the election to Trump for continually refusing to say the words “Islamic terrorism.”

“Donald Trump is not right — but he will win the election if the American people have to choose between his demagoguery and a party that won’t even say the words ‘Islamic terrorism,’” Maher said then. “I think the Democrats could lose on that issue alone, especially if there’s another attack.”

Of course, the audience would have a completely different reaction if he said this about Clinton…
