Carrey went off on U.S. President Donald Trump, calling him a "used auto salesman".

Carrey did have a message for Trump's supporters, however.

"There's plenty of subsidies for oil companies and everybody else who needs a handout", Carrey noted, as Maher called on Democrats to fight back against critics.

"We could find some common ground and a reason to love each other".
