Bill Maher lost complete control of his show on Friday. David Frum was angry about Donald Trump. It did not help that Bill Maher brought Trump's former spokesman Anthony Scaramucci to the panel.
David Frum loses it on Real Time with Bill Maher

David Frum did not hide his anger for the situation the country is in, being led by an incompetent president. He blamed Anthony Scaramucci as part of the problem. It was a contentious panel. Earlier Frum put Anthony Scaramucci on the spot with a pay for play question.
Later it would get very rancorous.
In addressing Scaramucci, Frum mansplained to Donna Brazile that he spent more time in the Republican Party than she did, insinuating that he was more qualified to question Scaramucci and Trump's behavior. Scaramucci taunted Frum for being angry. Frum admitted he was.
"Does it not stick in your craw that Vladimir Putin wanted to help your guy so much?" Fum asked. "Doesn't it bother you? Why didn't my guy win the primaries."
By then Maher had lost control of the panel.
"Your level of anger and sanctimony is not coming over very well," Scaramucci said.
"For this, it is not a show," Frum said. "It is not a performance. It is the country that is in danger. And you helped to pay for that."
Donna Brazile attempted to calm the situation down. In the process, Frum attempted to bait Scaramucci.
"You either save that card or you knee drop Harvard," Frum said.
Donna continued making peace then asked an important question.
"Why didn't the president call for an independent commission?" Brazile asked. "Away from Congress. Away from partisanship to investigate what happened."
Maher chimed in stating the president would never do it. And attempted to move on.
Brazile gave the correct assessment:
"If he is not going to do it," Brazile said. "The he is complicit because he is not doing anything to stop it from happening again."
