During Friday night's episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, both Maher and his guest panelists were visibly frustrated as they reacted to former President Donald Trump's major cash infusion .

On Friday afternoon, the parent company behind Trump's Truth Social site, Trump Media & Technology Group, voted to merge with Digital World Acquisition Corp, a move that will allow the site to be listed on the NASDAQ. The stock will be traded under the ticker "DJT."

If valuations for the new entity hold, Trump could end up with somewhere between $3.5 and $4 billion in new net assets.

On Friday evening, Bill Maher and his panelists appeared distraught over the major windfall, as well as additional positive developments for the former president. "This guy is the luckiest guy in the world," New York Magazine editor Kara Swisher said of the Truth Social news.

"And so his stake, because it's a meme stock, a little like GameStop, is worth $3.5 billion right now and could go higher if people bid it up," Swisher went on to groan.

"He definitely made a deal with the devil, because he always lucks out on everything," Maher chimed in.

Sara Isgur, a low-level Trump staffer turned "orange man bad" analyst, then remarked that Trump "has the best enemies."

"Look at Michael Avenatti, look at Fani Willis in Georgia. The best enemies, it just helps him so much," she said.

The panel then collectively groaned when Maher declared that "Merrick Garland f***ed it all up," insinuating that the Trump prosecutions should have taken place earlier in order to benefit Democrats. "He's dithered. Now we're probably not even going to see any of the trials," Maher said.

"He just always lucks his way into everything."
