On his Friday “Real Time” HBO show, host Bill Maher used his closing monologue to double down on a dare to the Republican Party in which he suggested they attempt impeachment of President Barack Obama to bolster his approval ratings and give Democrats a better shot in the 2014 midterm elections.
“So there you go, Republicans,” he said. “You finally have your impeachable offense — Obama gave you a case of the sads. So do it. Put your flag pin on and do it. I’m serious. Really serious. Rob Ford in rehab serious. And here’s why: because when the Republicans impeached Clinton, his approval rating shot up 10 points to 73. Obama’s approval is at 41. He could use a little of that impeachment mojo. So go ahead, haters, make Benghazi your big issue, please. Put Barack Obama back on the ballot in 2014 so he can kick your ass a third time.”
