Even Bill Maher can’t defend Hillary Clinton anymore


When it comes to being a political television entertainer, there are plenty of ways to earn a living – few of which come with the carte blanche allowance to speak freely.

Those who do break the mold are rare, perhaps only finding their way into the mainstream every few decades or so.  These are the giant squids of the journalistic world in that we know the they exist and, every now and then, we are able to make some post-mortem dissection of their life’s work.  But to maintain a living in the spotlight these days takes such an unhealthy dose of bipartisanship that we may never hear the truth spoken from on-high again.

There’s only the left and the right when it comes to the infotainment industry, thanks to the nefarious influence and unrepentant power of the advertising cabal that funds these propaganda publishing houses.  It’s far easier to create conflict when you have only two sides from which to choose, and we all know that conflict is what drives revenue and ratings.

That’s why it is always strange to hear men like Bill Maher step out of his leftist shelland defend the rule of law.

“Real Time” host Bill Mahermade a stunning admission on Monday night when he said he thought former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton“committed obstruction of justice” with the email scandal.

Maher began by praising former President Obamahaving two “successful” terms in office without a “whiff of scandal” and knocked Republicans for their attempts to stir controversy.

“They tried Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Solyndra, all these nothingburgers,” Maher told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

Then came the kicker:

“There’s a lot of reasons why the Democrats lost and many of them were Hillary was a terrible candidate, that’s absolutely true,” Maher said.

“She didn’t help herself [nor] the situation with the emails in terms of how she handled her answers and her actions,” Cuomo replied.

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

Obstruction of justice?  For Hillary Clinton?

It sounds like Bill Maher, if nothing else, has been at least paying attention to reality – even if it is his job to spin it.
