Turns out, even liberals are getting tired of the Clintons. On Friday, “Real Time” host Bill Maher said that Bill and Hillary Clinton should skip the Democratic National Convention next summer in Milwaukee and that they should just “go away.”
“It seems like every few months, Hillary Clinton bubbles up again,” Maher said on the show. “And people are like, ‘Oh, she’s thinking about running.’ Or she says something crazy. … The Clintons,” he added, “they’ve got to go away.”
The Daily Wire reported that the liberal comedian said he was dead serious, and saying this now so the word gets out. “I’m saying this a year out,” Maher said. “They can’t be at the convention. Maybe on the video, waving or something, but I’m serious.”
Maher also mentioned the latest news, referring to Hillary Clinton calling 2020 candidate and fellow Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard a “Russian asset.” In the following hubbub, Rep. Justin Amash called Hillary a “Donald Trump asset.”
“She is!” Bill Maher said. “And Bill is damaged goods. And I just think they’ve got to go away. We can’t be associating them with the Democratic Party.”
He also joked that while Americans now like former president George W. Bush more since he left office, Bill Clinton “got worse!” Maher said, referring to his reputation in light of the #MeToo movement. “We forgave him and then we unforgave him!”
Maher’s remarks came as rumors swirl that Hillary may jump into the 2020 race. Former Vice President Joe Biden, the front-runner, is falling in the polls and having trouble raising funds. Sen. Bernie Sanders had a heart attack this month and has curtailed his activities.
Earlier this month, President Trump urged Hillary Clinton to enter the race to “try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren.” And last week, Hillary said “maybe there does need to be a rematch. Obviously, I can beat him again,” referring to her pulling in 3 million more votes than President Trump (although he crushed her in the Electoral College by 304-227).
It’s fair to say that Hillary Clinton isn’t doing anything to dispel the rumors.
