Bill Maher. Yeah, major leftist. But an intellectually honest one. For that we have some respect. When he’s wrong he’s wrong, sure. But when he’s right? Hammer meet nail. In this case, the weird airpot rendezvous between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former president Bill Clinton.
Firstly, this panel is stacked with leftists, other than comedian Jim Gaffigan (who, in my opinion? Hilarious), looking a wee bit like an uncomfortable hot pocket. See what I did there? Yet even though Maher stacked the deck with shills full of talking points about why it’s totes fine for the Attorney General to park her jet next to the former president, who’s wife is being investigated by the FBI, while SHE runs for president, Maher wasn’t buying it. To be fair, looked like Loiuse Mensch wasn’t thrilled either. Yet she was talked over by the leftists. Par for the course.
I realize that was a super long sentence. Goes to the ludicrousness of our state of politics.
Because no, there’s not a good reason for a sitting Attorney General to talk with a former president who’s wife is being investigated by the FBI. No good reason. Obviously there was a reason for it. Maher knows it. His leftist panel knows it. You know it. We’re not crazy.
Methinks the tarmac meeting, or #TarmacGate, was many things, but most notably a metaphorical middle finger to anyone critical of Hillary Clinton. “Here we are, meeting with the AG, not in a secret room, mind you, but on a tarmac, where our jets are parked next to each other. Eat sh!t and die, MoFos.”
Think I’m wrong? Then let me quote Bill Maher who quoted Harrison Ford from Air Force One: “Get off my plane.”
Or tweet me at @Courtneyscoffs. We can swap famous one-liners all day.
*EDIT: I incorrectly had Jim Gaffigan as “Bill” Gafigan. The error has been fixed, my apologies to Jim. There were two Bills in this article. Too many Bills on the brain.
