WATCH: Bill Maher Mockingly Names Josh Hawley and Ashli Babbit ‘Heroes of the Coup’

It’s hard to believe that the Trump insurrection occurred all the way back in January. Since that day, however, Republican lawmakers and media members have been working hard to gaslight the public on the events of the day.

Josh Hawley, for instance, has faced no consequences for helping to ignite the riots. And Ashli Babbit, killed by Capitol Police for attempting to breach security has been painted as a martyr.

Bill Maher, though, is not letting them off the hook so easily. Last night, the host debuted a faux commercial honoring ‘heroes of the coup,’ Hawley and Babbit with commemorative coins.

The HBO host began, “they’re basically saying these were brave patriots to the point where we thought we could make some money on this. So here at Real Time, we’re partnering with the Franklin Mint, so take a look at what we’re going to sell.”

A voiceover then read, “You’ll get Ashli Babbitt, Senator Josh Hawley, the guy who stole the podium, the guy bear-spraying a Capitol Police officer, the guy who attacked police with a crutch, hanging off the Senate balcony guy, the Camp Auschwitz sweatshirt guy. And of course, the Qanon Shaman.”
