Bill Maher: GOP Now Stands for 'Grab Our P*ssies'

Bill Maher began his Friday night “Real Time” show asking his audience who hasn’t been groped by Donald Trump at this point, but the GOP certainly isn’t laughing.

It was only a week ago that the first accusation came out and Maher began his show with it. “Now he’s outraged that women have come forward,” Maher mocked. “‘How dare you claim I did the things I claim I do!'”

The whole ordeal has really hit the Republican Party, however. “There’s a lot of finger-pointing going on. ‘I told you we should have gone with Bill Cosby!'” Maher joked.

Surprisingly, however, some Republicans are still sticking with Trump. “Why? Because the voters are sticking with Donald Trump. To the Republican base out there, this is not a deal breaker. The GOP now stands for ‘Grab Our P*ssies.'”

When it comes to penises, Maher wants to know if those are on the table. “Can we grab d*cks too? Is that part of the Republican platform also? Can I walk up to Mike Pence, cup his balls, stick my hand up his shirt, play with his nipples for a while? Is that part of the platform like the Estate Tax? ‘We believe in the right of every American to feel up strangers and also school vouchers.’
