On Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the leftist host said an indictment of former President Donald Trump would be “rocket fuel” for his 2024 campaign.
“I really don’t want to give Donald Trump the satisfaction of talking about him. I thought when he was gone, he’d be gone a little bit,” comedian Bill Maher began.
“But, you know, there is an ex-president out there now who’s going to be arrested — possibly. And he is talking about violence in the streets of his supporters if he does.”
“I think this is a colossal mistake if they bring these charges,” Maher said of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump. Maher made these comments due to Bragg’s case which pertains to an alleged affair Trump had with Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress.
Bragg’s case centers around Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, allegedly sending “hush money” payments to Daniels. Both Daniels and Trump have denied the affair.
“First of all, it’s not going to work. It’s going to be rocket fuel for his 2024 campaign. nd it’s just going to look to MAGA nation like, oh, you know, you tried with Mueller, you tried with Ukraine, you tried with January six. Now we go to the porn star. Really? You’re down to that?”
