‘You See What Other Authoritarian Rulers Do To People’: Bill Maher Says He’s Afraid Of a Second Trump Term

Bill Maher scared of Donald Trump

HBO host Bill Maher says he’s scared of former President Donald Trump “on a very personal level” and “what he would do” to the comedian if he were to win the 2024 White House race.

“I am afraid of Trump on a very personal level because I don’t think he likes me. I understand why,” the “Real Time” host told CNN host Jake Tapper during an interview on Tuesday. “And I don’t know what he would do in a second term.”

The comedian said after Trump won the 2016 presidential election, “I was afraid for my own wellbeing. I thought I could wind up in Guantánamo Bay. I think I still could.”

“He’s obsessed sometimes. I don’t know. He went on a tear for about eight months when he was president. Every time he’d have a rally, I have a list three pages long of the things he’s called me,” he said of Trump.

“I mean, he is obviously someone who does not know any boundaries, and, you know, you have to worry when you see what other authoritarian rulers do in other countries to people,” Maher said of Trump.

He added; “I’m not thinking he’s going to become [Russian President Vladimir Putin] and start pushing people out windows,” Maher said, “but I’m not going to live on the 30th floor anywhere either.”

Maher has been a frequent critic of Trump, referring to the ex-real estate developer and 2024 Republican presidential candidate as “everything wrong with a human being stuffed into one man.”

Meanwhile, Trump has slammed Maher as a “radical left maniac.”

Earlier this month, the former president attacked CNN for adding Maher’s “Overtime” post-show segment to its Friday night programming.

“CNN wants to give wacky liddle’ Bill Maher a shot at bringing them back to just normal ‘bad’ when Bill Maher suffers from the same affliction as CNN — BAD RATINGS!” Trump wrote in a post on his social media site, Truth Social.
