    Comedian Bill Maher said on Friday’s episode of his HBO show Real Time that he has no problem with the country sinking into an economic recession if it is detrimental to President Trump.

    “By the way, I’m hoping for it because one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession,” Maher said. “Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy….I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point.”

    The backlash on Twitter was swift, even from some who said they also dislike the president. Many users pointed out that Maher would not be profoundly affected by a recession given his net worth of about $100 million and reported salary of $10 million.

    The comedian’s latest comment was his “cruelest and most ill-informed comment yet,” wrote former attorney and radio host Dean Obeidallah.

    Maher has made no secret of his scorn for Trump.

    “The only way that Trump survives as president is if we become not a nation of laws — in essence, a fascist dictatorship,” he said earlier this year.
