Maher says Trump indictment a sequel to Clinton sex scandal: ‘America did not like it the first time’

HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher warned Democrats on Friday that history repeats itself and Americans don’t really have an interest in nailing a president over sex scandals, informing them that former President Trump’s indictment could backfire while invoking former President Bill Clinton’s salacious history.

Maher urged Democrats to “remember the past” or they’ll be “condemned to repeat it” during the segment.

“This whole ‘going after the president for f***ing around’ thing — I’ve seen this movie before. It was called ‘Kill Bill,’” Maher quipped while showing an image of Clinton. “And America did not like it the first time.”

The leftist host recounted Clinton’s tawdry affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky which was splashed all over the headlines and eventually led to his impeachment.

“The Republicans exposed him as a dirty, filthy, disgusting sex-doer. And when they were done with him, he had an approval rating of 73%,” Maher noted. “This despite every Republican on every TV station for two years saying, ‘What do we tell the children?’ And those children are today’s millennials who, according to polls, don’t know anything about it and don’t care.”

“And as I watched the circus around our latest horny ex-president… it seems worth asking the Democrats having gone through this yourselves, what don’t you get about sex scandals don’t work on presidents?” he asked. “Because no matter what the underlying legal reasons are that underpin a sex scandal, to the average person, it’s just always going to be about sex. Nothing can compete. Law is boring. It’s the constitutional equivalent of golf.”

Maher reminded everyone that it wasn’t Clinton’s perjury that caught the attention of the media and the masses, it was the lewd details of his relationship with the intern. He contended that the same will apply to Trump and that no one really cares about Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s accusations of falsifying business records.

“There’s a reason every news outlet in the country recently ran the headline, ‘How strong is the case against Trump?’ It’s their way of saying, ‘Don’t get your hopes up,'” Maher pointed out.

“And to at least half the country, it looks like you tried to get him on Russia, and you tried to get him on Ukraine, and you tried to get him on classified documents and you didn’t, so now you went for the old reliable. Congratulations, you found out powerful men have an Achilles heel: their b*****s,” he added.

Maher has no love lost for Trump or Republicans in general. He made that abundantly clear while ridiculing them over the Clinton scandal, claiming that they hated to investigate Clinton but “their hands were tied by the rule of law.” He then raunchily snarked, “Like Monica, most people found all that a little hard to swallow.”

“Of course, Clinton’s situation and Trump’s have important differences. Clinton was in office and Trump is not. Trump’s case hinges on an NDA and Clinton’s was more about DNA,” he quipped alluding to Lewinsky’s infamous blue dress. “But there are also important similarities… Neither wife could stand to hold their husband’s hand, and both men claim they lied to protect the person they really loved. In Clinton’s case, Hillary. And in Trump’s case, him.”

“The element that most vitally sets these two cases apart is this — Republicans went after Clinton on sex because they didn’t have anything else. They had combed through his life like a school nurse looking for head lice and all they ever could come up with was the b*** job. But Democrats didn’t have to do this. Trump commits real crimes. He commits them on TV. He instructed justice. He pressured state election officials to fix an election on tape… He asks other countries to interfere in our elections publicly… He sides with our enemies… He refuses to concede elections and thereby incites insurrection,” Maher said parroting the left’s favorite talking points that many contend are untrue.

The HBO host admitted that it was “cathartic bordering on ecstatic” to see Trump arrested and brought to court. He stated that it “feels right,” but warned Democrats that “when the real indictments come down for the really serious offenses, we’ll have shot our wad on Stormy Daniels.”

“We’ll be so used to seeing Trump hauled into court, it’ll be no big whoop. Just like how we got used to watching him get impeached. And that’s a real shame because I was saving my good drugs for Georgia,” Maher concluded.
