Bill Maher has angered supporters of President Donald Trump by making a remark suggesting the president has a sexual relationship with his daughter, Ivanka.

Maher made the remark Friday on his HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher.” The comment came days after Stephen Colbert made a crude remark about a homosexual relationship between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Maher was speaking to New York magazine's Gabriel Sherman on Friday when he told the joke that included a lewd hand gesture.

People on social media were quick to express anger.

The FCC is investigating complaints against Colbert because his comment was made on CBS, a public broadcasting station.

Maher’s HBO show would not fall under those FCC regulations.
