On Friday evening in the opening monologue of his show, comedian and Real Time host Bill Maher took a couple of jabs at President Donald Trump and Melania's marriage, going so far as to compare their relationship to the Holocaust.

Although the couple celebrated their anniversary last week, Melania did not accompany Trump to the economic forum at Davos. Maher joked about that, saying: "Instead of going to Davos, Melania went to the Holocaust Museum, to cheer up. She signed the guestbook, 'I know the feeling.'"
He continued with: "She lit a candle to mourn the dark day two weeks ago when Trump's doctor said he was in good health. Then it was off to lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Trophy Wife."
While weighing in on the news of the week, Maher spent the better part of seven minutes bashing the president on more fronts than one. In reference to Trump's promise to "build the wall," he said that Trump "wanted to preserve 'build the wall' as a slogan in 2020. See, the wall is more valuable to him as an idea than a reality, like his marriage."
