Friday on HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher accused Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of stealing from his own charitable foundation.
However, when Trump adviser Stephen Moore invoked Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and the issues surrounding the Clinton Foundation, Maher immediately dismissed that controversy and declared there was no “pay for play” as far as Clinton was concerned.

MOORE: Oh my God.
MAHER: There is no pay for play because she was never paid.
