On Friday, HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher, who is supporting Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), but has previously dismissed the story about Clinton’s emails, said that Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email conduct “wasn’t good.” And that the Clintons can’t “fool rubes” like they did in Arkansas.
Maher stated of the email scandal that the State Department IG’s report “wasn’t good.” Adding, “Now, like with all Clinton scandals, what they actually do is never that bad. … It’s always how they handle it. And I think what the problem is, is that these two cut their teeth in Arkansas, and they got used to being able to fool rubes…easily, and it doesn’t work that way in DC.”
Earlier, while interviewing Sanders, Maher said, “I still don’t think she committed some horrible crime, but that story has moved a little bit, has it not?”
