Bill Maher: I’m Now at the Point Where I’m ‘Begging Mitt Romney to Be President’

In another preview of his sit-down with CNN’s Van Jones for The Messy Truth tonight, Bill Maher jokes about converting to Mormonism if it means Mitt Romney takes control of the country away from Donald Trump.

In 2012, Maher famously donated a million dollars to Barack Obama‘s re-election efforts to stop Romney. Now, he told Jones, “I would happily give that million dollars right now to Mitt Romney if he would take over the country.”

He said he’s practically “begging” for a Romney presidency now and jokes, “I’ll become a Mormon, how about that? I will become a Mormon and give you a million dollars, Mitt Romney, if you will please take over the country.”

Watch above, via CNN.

UPDATE –– 6:05 pm ET: Due to the pending circuit court ruling tonight, CNN will now be airing the special tomorrow, Friday the 10th, at 9 pm.
