Bill Maher is a confirmed leftist, but he is also honest and realistic. He is now giving his party a warning that Alvin (And Simon and Theodore) Bragg’s prosecution will actually help Trump because it should be an easy win for Trump. If the judge is honest, although in this case, it is doubtful, the case will be tossed because Trump never paid Daniels a dime. Michael Cohen did. The other 34 charges are well beyond the statute of limitations and CEOs do not do the accounting, the accountants do.
Maher pointed out that Clinton’s sex scandal was worse because he was convicted of perjury, yet he held on to his high polling numbers. He does not believe this will do anything except raise his polling numbers while contributions to his campaign will grow enormously. And when you combine this with that fruitcake Letitia James, you get a recipe for disaster if you are a Democrat.
Sex scandals don't work on presidents: Bill Maher pic.twitter.com/q6xxHKet6R

“This whole ‘going after the president for f—ing around’ thing — I’ve seen this movie before. It was called ‘Kill Bill,’” Maher told viewers while showing an image of former President Bill Clinton. “And America did not like it the first time.”
“The Republicans exposed him as a dirty, filthy, disgusting sex-doer. And when they were done with him, he had an approval rating of 73%,” Maher said. “This despite every Republican on every TV station for two years saying, ‘What do we tell the children?’ And those children are today’s millennials who, according to polls, don’t know anything about it and don’t care.”
“And as I watched the circus around our latest horny ex-president… it seems worth asking the Democrats having gone through this yourselves, what don’t you get about sex scandals don’t work on presidents?” Maher continued. “Because no matter what the underlying legal reasons are that underpin a sex scandal, to the average person, it’s just always going to be about sex. Nothing can compete. Law is boring. It’s the constitutional equivalent of golf.”
“There’s a reason every news outlet in the country recently ran the headline, ‘How strong is the case against Trump?’ It’s their way of saying, ‘Don’t get your hopes up,’” Maher told his audience.
“And to at least half the country, it looks like you tried to get him on Russia, and you tried to get him on Ukraine, and you tried to get him on classified documents and you didn’t, so now you went for the old reliable. Congratulations, you found out powerful men have an Achilles heel: their b—s,” Maher continued before insisting the same happened with Clinton beginning with the Whitewater probe.
Maher also attacked Alvin
and the Chipmunks Bragg for bringing 34 charges that should be misdemeanors and not felonies. Besides, the statute of limitations ran out years ago. The entire case is a collage of prosecutorial abuse. Bragg should have his law license pulled, but he won’t because he is a liberal and is funded by George Soros, Biden’s immediate superior.
The other distinction was Maher gave Clinton a complete pass for all his scandals while attacking Trump. But with Clinton, there was perjury whereas many legal experts have trashed the case against Trump as legally pathetic. Of course, there’s also the distinction that the media today will do all it can to demonize and do in Trump.
Bottom line? It’s not even clear that the case will survive long enough to matter during the 2024 campaign, it could be tossed for a variety of legal reasons. As we’ve noted, the House is also looking into the political nature of the prosecution. While the Manhattan DA is trying to squirm out of that with a lawsuit and avoid their investigation, so far it isn’t working.
