“Look, I don’t wanna be the wet blanket … it’s gonna be great when a B-list actress marries a man who will never be king in a country that doesn’t even matter,” Maher continued.

Still, Maher called today’s ceremony “an event so unimportant, even the Russians aren’t fixing it.”

He also touched on yesterday’s shooting at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas; Donald Trump’s latest Twitter tantrums, which revolve around China and the FBI, among other things; and the partial defunding of Planned Parenthood. Watch the full segment below.
