“I’m just saying we can survive a recession. We've had 47 of them. We've had one every time there's a Republican president,” Maher declared. “They don’t last forever? You know what lasts forever? Wiping out species!”

Maher and his panel criticized the Trump administration’s announcement on Monday that it would push to roll back protections for endangered species and allow for economic factors to be weighed before adding animals to the list.

The "Real Time" host blasted Trump over the move, calling the rollback “what any evil villain would do.”
