Bill Maher accuses Hillary Clinton of Obstruction of Justice

Bill Maher on CNN: ‘Terrible Candidate’ Hillary Clinton ‘Committed Obstruction of Justice’ By ‘Smashing Up’ Phones and Hard Drives

By Josh Feldman

Bill Maher spoke with CNN’s Chris Cuomo tonight about the 2020 Democratic field––which he (and basically everyone else) thinks is too large––and his concerns about whether the Democrats can beat President Donald Trump in 2020.
...

He acknowledged that “Hillary was a terrible candidate,” and Cuomo said Clinton “didn’t help the situation with the emails in terms of how she handled it with her answers and her actions.”

“Absolutely, right,” Maher said. “And she committed obstruction of justice. Trump did, I think, in worse fashion, but, you know, I mean, smashing up your phones and your hard drives…”

Once again Maher parrots a right wing talking point.

3. This is why I rarely ever watch him.

Sometimes he's good, sometimes he's a right winger and unwatchable, so to save aggravation, I just usually don't watch.

4. That's a FOX "News" story...

… that she went outside and "smashed" her phone with a sledgehammer or something... Hannity repeats it all the time... she would never destroy her phone that way. She's too smart. I hear you should soak it in a tub of water for a week. But, that's for us... Hillary's emails were sent somewhere and/or received somewhere - you can't destroy them by smashing a phone or computer. Emails are like that - they exist in many places... Is Maher losing his mind?

6. I'm a fan but that was a pretty ignorant thing for him to say

I see that he was on Howard Stern too. He must a book out or something.

I’ve never heard about any smashing of hard drives but smashing phones is Fed. Govt. policy.

10. Also a fan, but as he gets older,

I've watched him go off the rails more often. When he's good, he's great, but when he's bad? He's said some pretty ignorant things.

8. OMG. His safe space bashing was bad enough, but to see him go full conspiracy theory?

No. Just..... no.

9. Bill Maher bashed Hillary for years. He helped pave the way for Trump's victory.

Yeah, he hated Trump. But ever since his comedy central days, he was pushing BS against Hillary. That BS turned around and helped create the illusion of crooked Hillary that got Trump elected. If she was a terrible candidate, it's only because people like Maher in an effort to push both sides are corrupt made her so.

Not only has he never self reflected on how he helped create the careers of right wing noise machines like Coulter, but he's clearly still making shit up about Hillary. You can't laugh at Trump fans, and not ask, why the * did I spend years allowing RW talking points to flow from my own show ...

Just saying, Bill.

16. I think we can assume Bill is like most in the media

The national media doesn't care about total votes. In the media's 2016 mythology, which continues to this day, we must only look at white near-death bed male voters. The ability of candidates to attract any other rational voter is not considered

17. Quite

Beyond that, his is the problem. And frankly, any friend of Coulter is not one of mine cause as they say, birds of a feather....

15. Meanwhile Clinton is warning about Fascism


instead of covering up the reality of the present danger facing us all.

When I see Bill Maher I am reminded of the musical Caberet making cute jokes about race while the Nazis were rounding up "undesirables" and building those "work" camps.

Possibly Bill is just a well-intentioned comedian who just wants to help us not feel too sad about the children's prisons at our border. ---but I think he has just been running scared since he lost his show by years ago by not kowtowing to the powers that be.

Clinton on the other hand has not backed down on the truth about Russia, Trump, and fascism even though once more being threatened with politically-motivated investigations and the mob-stirring cries of "Lock her up."
