Fran Lebowitz is apologizing for her comments that she says “everyone misinterpreted” while on “Real Time With Bill Maher”.
It started when Lebowitz suggested turning Donald Trump “over to the Saudis, his buddies – the same Saudis who got rid of that reporter.”
After being asked if she was in favour of impeaching the president, the author said, “maybe they could do the same for him.”
As the show went on, producers told Maher about the “blowback” on Twitter from her comments.
“I saw your face when I said it,” Lebowitz said on the online-only “Overtime” HBO segment. “I didn’t realize that I had said it. I had 12 cups of coffee. I regret saying it.”
“It’s a live show,” Maher added. “You don’t really want to see the president dismembered by the Saudis. I don’t like Donald Trump either…NO matter who the president is we do not want physical harm.”
“I did not mean that and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it.”
