What should Real Time with Bill Maher fans expect to see tonight on HBO?

Real Time with Bill Maher fans were disappointed last week when their favorite late-night television show did not return with a new episode. Considering how much there is to discuss after another busy week, Bill Maher’s opinion remains in high demand.

President Donald Trump has been discharged from Walter Reed, staged a photo-op outside the White House, pulled out of the next debate with former Vice President Joe Biden, and is eager to get back on the campaign trail for public events.

Each of those topics could get a full episode of Real Time dedicated to it. Bill Maher will have to pick and choose what he talks about tonight.

Yes, there will be a new Real Time with Bill Maher tonight. Keep reading for a breakdown of tonight’s guest lineup.

Real Time with Bill Maher’s interview guests for tonight

The Trump administration will be the main topic during both interviews tonight. And both interview guests are returning visitors to Real Time with Bill Maher.

Representative Adam Schiff will be the first interview. As the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Schiff has been deeply involved in to investigations surrounding the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, President Trump’s impeachment and more.

Expect both Maher and Rep. Schiff to bash President Trump pretty relentlessly. Maher has made it clear he doesn’t think the president will willingly hand over power. Meanwhile, Rep. Schiff has attacked President Trump’s character at every opportunity.

Next, Maher will talk with former CIA Director John Brennan. Brennan served in President Barack Obama’s administration and has since become one of President Trump’s loudest critics.

Brennan will be on Real Time to discuss his memoir Undaunted: My Fight Against America’s Enemies At Home and Abroad. Expect him to compare his experience at the CIA and working with President Obama to how the American intelligence community has fared under President Trump’s watch.

Real Time with Bill Maher’s panel for tonight

Tonight’s Real Time with Bill Maher will feature two journalists. One is making her Real Time debut and the other will be familiar to fans of the show.

Keli Goff is a columnist for The Daily Beast and a contributor to the radio program “Left, Right, and Center. She also served as a producer on the Emmy-nominated documentary Reversing Roe.

Goff could comment on what the future of abortion laws in the U.S. could look like if Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed to the Supreme Court. She may also discuss the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement on mass media.

Bret Stephens is a columnist for The New York Times and contributor on MSNBC. Despite being a conservative, Stephens opposes President Donald Trump.

Tonight, Maher may ask Stephens about his recent column profiling so-called “secret Trump voters.” Most polls show support for President Trump sinking but Stephens may have a different take on the story.
