During an interview on CNN’s ‘The Situation Room‘ Monday night, Bill Maher told Wolf Blitzer that the joint Zach Galifianakis smoked on his show Friday was a fake.

“If it was a real joint, Wolf, I would have smoked it…I think it was cloves or something,” Maher said, continuing, “Zach’s crazy, he’s not that crazy.”

On Friday’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher,’ Galifianakis lit what seemed to be a joint during a discussion about California’s ballot measure, Proposition 19, which would legalize the sale of Marijuana in the state.

Galifianakis made no mention of the gag on last night’s ‘Daily Show,’ where he appeared to promote his new film ‘Due Date.’ Instead, he told a hilarious story about how he first “met” Jon Stewart. Watch it below:

Do you believe Maher? Or will you entertain our little conspiracy theory that the ‘Real Time’ host and HBO have to claim it was a fake for legal reasons?
