Bill Maher Gives Jeff Sessions the Finger on 'Real Time'

On the latest episode of Real Time (Season 15, Episode 6), Bill Maher takes aim at Attorney General Jeff Sessions and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who he dubs "future stroke victim."

In the monologue, Maher's quick to acknowledge Spicer's comments on Feb. 24 about the Department of Justice increasing enforcement against recreational marijuana businesses in adult-use legal states, such as Colorado.

"No," Maher says adamantly.

"That's too far. No way am I doing these next four years straight. You can have my multicolored skull bong when you pry it from my cold dead hands."

He then quips:

"In one week, [the White House] went after LGBT people, Mexicans and stoners – that's the entire population of Los Angeles!"

Later in the show, during the "I Don't Know for a Fact…" segment, he shows photos of Sessions and the actress Ruth Negga, who stars in the film Loving (she's nominated for an Oscar) and says with a smirk:

"I don't know for a fact that Jeff Session is a big fan of the movie 'Loving,' because he loves being able to talk about Ruth Negga - I just know it's true."

Maher then raises his middle finger toward Sessions.
