"Real Time" host Bill Maher last night discussed the lose-lose decision Republicans have to make between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.

"You guys started out with 17 candidates," Maher told GOP voters. "And somehow you ended up with Mussolini and Joe McCarthy."

"Donald Trump is like Ebola, he'll violently kill you right away," Maher continued. "Cruz is more like the Zika virus, we wont see the damage until future generations."

"Donald Trump is the most thin-skinned person in human history, and reacts to the smallest slight with the hair-trigger wounded ego of a male flight attendant," Maher added, explaining "perhaps the most important" distinction between the two candidates. "Whereas Ted Cruz is immune to insults because he's learned to live in a world where everyone, everywhere has always hated him."
