Fran Lebowitz Suggests Trump Should Suffer Same Fate as Khashoggi: ‘Turn Him Over to the Saudis!’

Social commentator and author Fran Lebowitz suggested on Friday night that President Donald Trump should suffer the same fate as murdered Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Lebowitz’s comments came during a discussion on Real Time with Bill Maher.

It all started when host Bill Maher asked her about Trump and her thoughts on impeachment.

“Where are you on impeachment? yes, no?” Maher asked.

Lebowitz replied that she changes her mind “from day-to-day.”

“Where am I on impeachment? He certainly deserves to be impeachment,” she added.

Maher then said that he agreed that Trump deserves to be impeached.

That prompted Lebowitz to say he deserves much worse.

“Impeachment would be just the beginning of what he deserves. Not even scratching the surface of what he deserves,” she continued on.

The audience applauded.

Then she said this suggesting Trump deserves to suffer a grisly fate: “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think we should turn him over to the Saudis…his buddies. The same Saudis, you know, who got rid of that reporter. Maybe they could do the same for him.”

The audience erupted once again.
