Maher: ‘The Press Has It Out For’ Hillary Clinton

HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher argued “the press has it out for” Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday.

Maher did say that he wasn’t “excited” for Clinton, and It’s like getting a shot.” After Andrew Sullivan cited Hillary’s lagging poll numbers and “cynicism,” Maher responded, “But maybe that’s not her fault. Maybe it’s the press, who has it out for her, including the liberal press, by the way.”

After Sullivan stated, “Oh, poor, poor Hillary. She can’t handle the press?” Maher stated, “Well, it’s not that she can’t handle it. It’s that people can’t handle it. People believe what they read, if they ever f*cking read.”
