Bill Maher pissed off conservatives after joking about Ivanka giving her dad a handjob

If there’s one thing you should know about conservatives, it’s that they won’t stand for your disgusting, sexually charged sense of humor — particularly in reference to the first daughter. The president grabbing women by the pussy? That’s fine. Preventing victims of rape and domestic abuse from being able to get health insurance? Yeah, they’re totally cool with that, too. But making a joke about the self-described “entrepreneur & advocate for the education & empowerment of women & girls” and official unofficial assistant to the president? Well, that’s just taking it too far, mister — as Bill Maher found out.

On Friday’s episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher,” the politically-minded comedian — who has made a career out of pissing off people on both sides of the aisle with his brash humor — joked to New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman that, “A lot of us thought, ‘Oh, Ivanka is gonna be our saving grace.’ When [Trump’s] about to fucking nuke Finland or something, she’s gonna walk into the bedroom and you know… ‘Daddy, Daddy. Don’t do it, Daddy.’” The punch line, which was accompanied with a certain hand gesture, being that a handjob would be her best chance for persuasion — a joke that immediately ignited the right. (See here, here, and here.)

The best response, however, may have come from “freedom”-fighting performance artist Alex Jones:

It is, of course, worth noting that Trump himself has a long history of making vomit-inducing sexual innuendos about his daughter, going all the way back to the 1997 Miss Teen USA pageant, where he badgered then-Miss Universe about how hot Ivanka was: “Don’t you think my daughter’s hot? She’s hot, right?”

In 2015, he told Rolling Stone that Ivanka was “really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father.” (We’ll just ignore the fact that the “father” part came after the “happily married” descriptor.) In 2006, Trump told Howard Stern it was totally fine to call his daughter “a piece of ass.” And somewhere in between all that, in 2006, he reminded the hosts of “The View” of his long-held mantra: “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” Ummm… ewww!

But you’re right, conservatives. It’s Bill Maher who’s the real threat.
