Bill Maher, “Real Time” host, expressed concerns over former President Donald J. Trump’s silence on President Joe Biden’s first week in office.
During Friday night’s show, Maher repeatedly expressed his concerns about the ‘radio silence’ from the former president since arriving at Mar-a-Lago on Jan. 20.
“Does that not alarm you a little?” Maher asked his audience. “It’s like in ‘Jaws’ when the shark went out to sea for a little while. I think it will be back.”
Trump has opened an #OfficeOfTheFormerPresident down in Florida. It's just a front for attacking his enemies and enriching himself. So just like his office when he was the president. pic.twitter.com/cJZuGEJAaM

“Where is Trump?” Maher wondered. “It’s like he’s in the ‘Where Are They Now?’ bit. I am so shocked that this guy has been so quiet! Are you not?”
“I just don’t trust that, you know? It’s just so not like him! ‘Radio silence’ is just never a term I associated with Donald Trump,” Maher continued. “He isn’t exactly … ‘fading away gracefully.'”
Guest and CNN commentator, Van Jones, critiqued House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s recent visit to Trump as a “kiss the ring,” moment.
