Bill Maher says about Hillary Clinton: 'The ball rolled through her legs'

politics | May 02, 2017 | By Martin Barillas

HBO’s late-night host Bill Maher condemned former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. He told CNN on Tuesday that Clinton is seeking to relitigate the 2016 election. His remarks came on the same day that Clinton told a women's conference that she is part of the "Resistance" against President Donald Trump. Maher said on Tuesday, “I don’t know why she needs to be coming back.”
 
“She had her turn and it didn’t work out. The ball rolled through her legs.” 
 
Also on Tuesday, Clinton blamed her electoral loss to Trump on FBI Director James Comey and WikiLeaks’ publication of hacked Democratic emails. “I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russia WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off,” she said. 
 
Maher said that Clinton was “right about the letter,” and added, “[Comey] seemed to be in a tough place, I get it.” He told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “He had to say something, he thought, 11 days before the election.”
 
“Why not say that, and then also mention the stuff about Russia with Donald Trump? That seemed to be, to me, the fair way to handle it.”
 
Clinton admitted she to little responsibility to her surprise loss to Trump. “I was the candidate,” she said at the Women for Women International event. "I was the person who was on the ballot and I am very aware of, you know, the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had."
