'We needed Superman and we got Clark Can't': Watch Bill Maher go off on Mueller

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher blasted special counsel Robert Mueller for following Justice Department guidelines and not indicting President Donald Trump.

"New rule, just because you have a stone face doesn't mean you belong on Mount Rushmore," Maher said, with a picture of Mueller.

"For over two years, America has had a crazy person in the White House, and for over two years the Democrats have done f*ck-all about it because they were waiting for Mueller," he said.

"We all sat around waiting for prosecutor Jesus to turn in his big report," he continued. "And he came back with, 'ask someone else.'"

"We needed Superman and we got Clark Can't," Maher said.

"I get it, Mueller's a Boy Scout, a straight arrow, he played it by the book, but you may have noticed for the last three years, we've kind of been off book," he said. "Greatness sometimes means not doing everything by the book."

"All he had to do is what people in the justice system do every day, use the law to come to justice," he explained. "Not be so restricted by technicalities that the bad guys win."

Mueller had particular contempt for one line in the report, where it was written that Donald Trump, Jr. "declined to be voluntarily interviewed."

"So make him," Maher argued.

"Was he too busy? You couldn't work around his tweeting schedule?" he wondered.

"It's one feckless punt after another," he said.

"You can't indict a sitting president? It's not in the Constitution, it's not even a law," Maher noted. "It's a guideline, like drinking white wine with fish or not f*cking your cousin."

"It's a f*cking memo," Maher said.
