Comedienne Maria Bamford has filed legal papers urging a judge to keep President Donald Trump away from her and accusing the U.S. leader of keeping her awake at night.

The stand-up claims the ever-present threat of nuclear annihilation has left her feeling anxious and depressed - and she wants lawmakers to stop Trump before he goes too far, according to TMZ.

In her legal papers, Maria cites Trump's boast "I too have a nuclear button and my button works" as one major cause for concern, and she is asking a judge to keep the leader at least 1,000 yards away from her.

The legal bid is part of a promotion for the comedienne's new comedy tour, which begins on Tuesday.
