Comedian Bill Maher mocked Justice Amy Coney Barrett for her Catholicism again during his show on Friday, subjecting her to a recurring bit and calling her a “Mel Gibson’s dad Catholic.”
“She is making it almost a completely Catholic court, which I like to point out,” Maher said of the newly-confirmed justice. “And she’s not just a Catholic; she’s a ‘Mel Gibson’s dad’ Catholic.”
“I mean, this is like a court that looks like ‘The Da Vinci Code’ now,” Maher added, referencing the Dan Brown novel about the Catholic Church.
Barrett has been a recurring target for Maher, who has repeatedly painted the devout Catholic mother of seven as a religious radical and “a f***ing nut.”
Maher went on to make Barrett the center of a segment called “24 Things You Don’t Know About Me,” a parody of a regular feature in “Us Weekly.”
