Bill Maher rips Anthony Weiner over Hillary Clinton email investigation
Bill Maher used Friday night’s Real Time to tear into Anthony Weiner for his role in the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
On Friday, FBI director James Comey released a statement saying the FBI had, in an unrelated case, “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.”
That “unrelated case” Comey referenced is Weiner’s alleged sexting scandal involving an underage girl.
Maher explained: “Anthony Weiner is under investigation for sexting with a underage girl across state lines, so the FBI seized all his computers. He is married — or was married — to Huma Abedin, who is Hillary Clinton’s aide. And they were using the same computer. Which begs my first question: Why is Huma using Anthony’s computer? If there’s one thing she didn’t want to go near, it would be his computer. So, Hillary’s emails are intermingled with Anthony Weiner’s sexting? No wonder she had her server wiped! I’d have had it boiled.”
Maher, who called Weiner a “freak,” also mocked the disgraced congressman for his part in the investigation. “It’s so ironic. Weiner’s one excuse when he was sexting was that he never actually f—ed anyone. Well, now he has: Planet Earth. I don’t know if Weiner’s d— is big, but it certainly casts a long shadow.”
He later added, “So once again, Hillary’s political fortunes are driven by out of control c—s. Right? This poor woman. I mean, first it was her husband’s, then it was Donald Trump’s, and now it’s Anthony Weiner’s. Or what she calls it: My basket of deplorable horndogs.”
But despite the latest revelations, Maher wasn’t changing his vote. “So you know what? I don’t know what they’re going to find, and I don’t care. She’s got a server in her basement? I don’t care if she’s got JonBenet Ramsey in her basement, I’m still not voting for Donald Trump.”
