As the feud between President Trump and Omarosa Manigault Newman heats up, so do the late night jokes about them.
Bill Maher took advantage of the quarreling to pick on the president during “Real Time” Friday night.
“Not such a good week for the president,” he said. “He lost his one black friend.”
Manigault Newman is back in the headlines thanks to her new book “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” a tell-all of her time in the White House as former political aide to Trump.
“I believe her official title was assistant secretary for throwing shade,” Maher joked. “And boy is she, she has a lot to say about Donald Trump.”
He continued, “She said, boy he is a racist and he suffers from dementia. And he said she’s crazed and crying and a lowlife and a dog. And Putin said, I can’t believe I have to collude with these people.”
The late night host also criticized Trump’s reaction to the death of Aretha Franklin Thursday, in which the president claimed the singer worked from him.
“This guy cannot say ‘rest in peace’ without lying,” Maher jabbed. “Trump said he was going to tweet his favorite Aretha song, ‘Respect,’ but he couldn’t remember how to spell it.”
Maher also joked about a claim in “Unhinged” that Trump drinks eight diet Cokes a day.
“Diet Coke, come on, it’s working. He has the body of a Greek god,” he said. “I’m sorry, he has the body of a Greek diner.”

Fallon also joked about the Coke claim during the “Thank You Notes” segment of “The Tonight Show” Friday.
“Thank you Omarosa for claiming that President Trump drinks at least eight cans of diet Cokes a day, which raises the question: Just how many is Rudy Giuliani drinking?” he said.
