Maher nails right wing war on Clinton: ‘Fascists decide you’re a criminal — then they find the crime’
Bill Maher went on an all out attack against the right-wing in his final “Real Time” before Election Day. After an in-depth interview with President Barack Obama and a hilarious opening monologue, the panel set in on the right-wing.
Maher brought up Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who is in a tight election with former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI). Johnson admitted that on the first day of Clinton’s term in office he intends to begin impeachment proceedings.
“I made a joke last week that she’s going to testify in a ball gown at the night of the Inauguration,” Maher noted. “That’s what they really want to do. Talk about impeaching her? She hasn’t been elected yet! Fascists decide you’re a criminal — then they find the crime. This is what they’ve done with Hillary Clinton. The big lie! Trump is out there every day saying she’s under criminal investigation. No, she’s not. The emails are not a crime. And they haven’t found anything on Anthony Weiner’s d*ck-smorgasbord.”
Former Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D-MI) was also on the panel and followed the trail from the so-called investigation into the Clinton Foundation coming from the information published in the book Clinton Cash. The book was published by a company paid for by Steve Bannon, Trump’s campaign CEO and a former editor of Breitbart “News.” While the Republican Clinton voter on the panel tried to claim that the book was verified by “independent sources,” Granholm was quick to point out that the New York Times got in trouble because the story they did from the book didn’t hold up.
Maher explained the political environment has gotten so bad that the idea of a political rally in which the attendees are shouting “lock her up” or “execute her” is the norm, it has gone too far.
“You’ve gotten to the point where like Rwanda was in the 90s,” Maher continued. “Where ‘the other’ is such vermin like Hitler called the Jews and the Slaves. That when you take power you’re doing God’s work by eliminating your enemies. That’s where we are.”
