On Friday's episode of "Real Time," the host Bill Maher concluded the show with a cautionary message to Democrats about the possible consequences of indicting former President Donald Trump for his purportedly fake business records concerning Stormy Daniels. Maher advised Democrats to reflect on history to avoid making the same mistakes again, as failing to do so would result in repeating them and facing condemnation.
"This whole ‘going after the president for f---ing around’ thing — I've seen this movie before. It was called ‘Kill Bill,’" Maher said to viewers with an image of Bill Clinton showing. "And America did not like it the first time."
Maher summarized the scandal surrounding former President Bill Clinton's extramarital affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, which resulted in his impeachment.
"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,'" said to 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.
Maher ridiculed Republicans who, during the Clinton scandal, claimed to dislike investigating Clinton but felt constrained by the rule of law. He remarked to his audience that such statements were difficult to believe, much like Monica Lewinsky's story.
"Of course, Clinton's situation and Trump's have important differences. Clinton was in office and Trump is not. Trump's case hinges on an NDA and Clinton's was more about DNA," Maher quipped about Lewinsky's infamous blue dress. "But there are also important similarities… Neither wife could stand to hold their husband's hand, and both men claim they lied to protect the person they really loved. In Clinton's case, Hillary. And in Trump's case, him."
