Bill Maher called Hillary Clinton out on his HBO Real Time series Friday night, suggesting that she stay quiet for two years so as not to jeopardize her yet-unannounced bid for the White House — even if she’s on a book tour for her tome Hard Choices. Maher was specifically zeroing in on Clinton’s recent comment that the former U.S. Presidential family was penniless after leaving the White House in 2001. “When you emerge from the financial rut that is the U.S. presidency — talk about a red flag on a resume, when they see that, after you ran the world for eight years,” remarked Maher, “Nobody will hire you.” Joy Reid, host of MSNBC’s The Reid Report concurred that the Clintons’ biggest flaws, particularly in the 2008 campaign, stem from their verbal blunders in their “day-to-day slog”. In the wake of her remarks, Clinton said she was “inartful” in speaking about her wealth, particularly as she vies to empathize with struggling Americans. Recently, the Wall Street Journal reported that Hillary Clinton is facing a backlash in her public speeches as she has been granting a mix of free and paid ones since her departure from the State Department earlier this year.
