Maher to Sanders Supporters: It’s Over, Hillary Won Fair and Square
Bill Maher made it clear tonight that while he doesn’t begrudge Bernie Sanders staying in the race, it is clearly “over” for him.
He praised Sanders for revealing just “how much of the country is left-wing,” but at the same time, he said Sanders’ supporters need to accept that Hillary Clinton “won fair and square” and “kicked his ass at the finish line.”
Maher suspected that people just assumed Sanders’ giant crowds meant more than they probably did, and said people can’t be complaining the system is rigged when it’s against them, but fair when it’s for them.
Andrew Ross Sorkin warned Maher that Sanders staying in could potentially damage Clinton, but Maher said as long as he’s out by the convention, there’s no problem.
