Liberal comedian Bill Maher on Friday said that he hopes the economy crashes in order to "get rid" of President Donald Trump.
Maher made the remarks on his HBO talk show, "Real Time with Bill Maher."
"I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point," he said.
"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."

"Sorry if that hurts people but it's either root for a recession or you lose your democracy," Maher added.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 223,000 jobs were added last month.
It also noted that unemployment was at 3.8 percent, the lowest so far this year.
Pete Hegseth said Saturday on "Fox & Friends that Maher says things that many liberals are thinking but won't say.
"Who wants to root for people losing their jobs and a bad economy? No one does," he said. "But in the back of their mind they're saying, ‘how do we beat this guy in 2018, especially in 2020? Well, the economy's got to tank.’"
