Last night during the ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’ on HBO, Fran Lebowitz was asked about Trump and her thoughts on impeachment. Lebowitz suggested murdering President Donald Trump: “We should turn him over to the Saudis, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter [Jamal Khashoggi]. Maybe they could do the same for him.”
During the show’s “Overtime” segment, Lebowitz said the “Real Time” producers told Lebowitz that her remarks were getting blowback on social media.
“I saw your face when I said it. I didn’t even realize that I said it. I had twelve cups of coffee,” Lebowitz told Maher. “I regret saying it.”
“You know, everyone’s too, too, too, too … ” Maher told the panel. “I mean, it’s a live show. You really don’t want to see the president dismembered by the Saudis. I don’t like Donald Trump either. … but no matter who the president is, we don’t want physical harm.”
But Lebowitz immediately turned and said that she “did not mean that and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it because they misinterpret everything.”
