BILL Maher mocked Melania Trump as "a victim of human trafficking" with a shocking joke during his hit show last night.
Maher made the jab during on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night while arguing about unseen bureaucrats who have gotten real change in America.
The host used the segment to honor former California Rep Henry Waxman, who had a major role in passing significant health-related legislature.
He also used the opportunity to take a dig at the former first lady.
During the segment, Maher listed off a handful of social issues that are tackled by long, "boring" congressional negotiations.
"People don't live in the world of political philosophies, and endless intersectional theorizing," Maher said.
"They live in the world of, is there going to be a hot lunch at school? No lead in the toys? Getting minimum wage, and helping the victims of human trafficking."
When he mentioned human trafficking, a photo of former First Lady Melania Trump popped up on the screen.
The low-blow is a common one used by those who dislike former President Donald Trump, as Melania is originally from Slovenia.
She moved to New York City years before she married Trump, however, and did become an American citizen in 2006 after the couple's son, Barron, was born.
The dig comes more than a week after the Trumps departed the White House and relocated to Mar-a-Lago in Florida.
Melania is reportedly looking to set up an office in the Palm Beach area to continue to "Be Best" initiative that she began during her time in the White House, according to Business Insider.
The campaign focused of dealing with cyberbullying, opioid addiction and children's wellbeing.
She faced criticism after launching the anti-cyber bullying initiative, while President Trump would regularly insult people on Twitter – a platform he has since been banned from.
Melania has reportedly brought in former White House staff, Hayley D'Antuno, Mary Finzer and Marcia Kelly, to work on the campaign's future.
The former president has also set up an office in Florida.
