If Republicans who are suddenly apoplectic about the meteoric rise of Donald Trump in the 2016 election are looking for sympathy, they need not seek it from “Real Time” host Bill Maher, who reminded them last night that Trump is a direct result of their embracing the worst elements of society for decades.

Maher commented:

“They made a Faustian deal with the racist devil years ago and now those chickens are coming home to roost.”

The comedian also said he wasn’t buying what House Speaker Paul Ryan claimed the other day when he said the Republican party “does not prey on peoples’ prejudices.” To that, Maher retorted:

“What about voter ID laws?. What about once defending the guy who gets shot, the black guy, instead of the cop. Who are they kidding? This is the party they are and Trump is just the latest.”

One of Maher’s guests, conservative author Matt Lewis, tried to say that Trump is in no way indicative of what the GOP stands for, but Maher was having none of that, either, reminding Lewis:

“It was called the Southern Strategy when Nixon did it. Reagan started his campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi. It’s always been a winking campaign to get white people, mostly, who have a resentment to vote racially. Let’s not pretend this is new.”

Lewis pathetically attempted to defend the GOP again, saying:

“I would say that the Republican Party — at least if you look at the people who are running for president — are much more diverse.”

The “Real Time” host shut down that line of rhetoric with this perfect response:

“The two Hispanics want to put other Hispanics on cattle carts and throw them out of the country.”
