"Real Time" host Bill Maher last night imagined what the future of commencement addresses will look like, enacting his own to "graduates of the class of 2041, parents, faculty, distinguished guests, masculine identifiers, feminine identifiers, and cyborgs."

"Let me first say what an honor it is to be here today at the University of California Goldman Sachs," Maher began. "Now it's easy to get nostalgic for how things used to be under the first President Kardashian, back before Canada built a wall to keep us out, and back when a person starting out in life could still get a studio apartment in San Francisco for only two million dollars ... a month."

"So yes, we have problems," he continued. "The leading cause of death in our country is going outside, driverless cars still won't pick up black people, and 90% of America's wealth is owned by Katy Perry."
