Comedian Bill Maher offers Mitt Romney $1 million to take over for Trump

During his most recent HBO special, comedian Bill Maher went after President Donald Trump, offering the former presidential candidate and current U.S. Senate hopeful $1 million to take control of the country.

Maher famously donated $1 million during the 2012 election to help President Barack Obama defeat Romney. Now he’s offering the same deal to Romney.

From Deadline:

The HBO late night star reminded viewers that, when the former Massachusetts governor ran for POTUS in 2012, “I was so scared Romney was going to be president I gave Obama a million bucks.”


Explaining what a difference a few years, and one Donald Trump presidency, can make, Maher announced, “I would gladly give Romney $1M tomorrow if he would take over America. Swear to god!”


“I will become a Mormon, how about that?” the well-known atheist said, upping the offer on Bill Maher: Live From Oklahoma, on HBO.
