Bill Maher: Rush Limbaugh shouldn't be telling 'fat' jokes

February 24, 2011 |  1:25 pm

Bill Maher and Arianna Huffington Bill Maher thinks Rush Limbaugh should reserve his thoughts on the first lady's weight -- as he literally has no room to talk, according to the "Real Time" host.

"That's too easy," Maher told the Ministry regarding recent comments Limbaugh made about Michelle Obama's size, "because Rush is fat."

Maher breezed through West Hollywood's Roxy Theater on Wednesday night to help his pal Arianna Huffington celebrate her website's comedy section.

Excited funnymen like "Mr. Sunshine" actor Matthew Perry tried to grab their five minutes with Maher, while Huffington greeted friends and supporters (with some of her newly acquired AOL partners in the house).

We were curious, given his affinity for Huffington and her site, can we expect the Maher Post any time soon?

"I'm happy blogging for her," he said.
