Comedian Bill Maher smeared Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI by comparing his role as the "pope's rottweiler" to former Christie aide Bridget Kelly's role as "blob's rottweiler."

Maher called Pope Francis "kind of the Gorbachev of the Catholic church" and added that "maybe his goal is to kind of bring it down." Matthews interjected that Francis could be more like F.W. de Klerk, who helped end apartheid in South Africa.
