On Friday’s edition of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher offered some advice to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who over the past two weeks has been on a tour promoting her latest memoir, “Hard Choices.”
Maher warned that Clinton is overexposing herself on the tour, which has been one that she had committed a number gaffes. That according to Maher could cost in 2016 should she decide to run for president.
“Let’s talk about Hillary Clinton,” Maher said. “You know she’s in a bit of a mess because a couple of weeks ago, she said when she and Bill left the White House, they were two broke girls. She did. She said, ‘We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt. We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education. It was not easy.’”
“And so true – when you emerge from the financial rut that is the U.S. presidency – talk about a red flag on a resume,” he continued. “When they see that – that you ran the world for eight years, nobody will hire you. So they’re trying to keep walking this back and people say, ‘Well with Hillary being out there with her book tour talking about all this stuff – it’s going to inoculate her.’ You know there’s a fine line between inoculate and we’re sick of you. My advice to Hillary – just go away. Go away for a while. We’re going to see each other in a couple of years, a lot. Just go away, because otherwise you’re going to blow this.”
