2. He didn't win.

He's just claiming he did.

Mueller was never going to indict him.

6. He won. And no longer can it be said the coverup is worse than the crime.

Trump and the Republicans covered up the crime and Mueller let them.

I'm sick that i thought he was going to be a champion for justice.

7. Read it, please.

Standing DOJ Policy is the only reason President Asshole's not charged with Obstruction. He clearly committed it, multiple times.

He'll only win if the Dems let him skate. This is not over.

10. The headline on my newspaper this morning read "Mueller: No Evidence of Collusion by Trump"

Granted it is a rag but everyone that got their paper or walked by it on sale read that and went on their way and closed the book on the Mueller investigation. Mueller failed his country, he let Trump destroy the DOJ and let Barr set the narrative.

3. I often enjoy his show.

However, I find him to be frequently obnoxious, uninformed, and no where near as intelligent as he thinks he is. But there are some good guests.

get away with gasligting. Nobody else does that directly. Not CNN. Not other comedians. It is such a satisfying way to end a week. He's clever and clever is what we need to be against the likes of republicans.so we disagree. GOP has managed to erase the public square of debate so that their lies will take. Maher is one place it still exists. He's not always right in his predictions but Paul Krugman is only right in his predictions 75% of the time (and he is rated as the most accurate columnist) and Maher must be up there in that. I don't know why you think he is not as smart as he thinks. Nobody else has been doing the political comedy thing as long and as successfully as him. Maybe Jon Stewart. But he is retired. I just don't get it when people think that there is only one measure of intelligence. There are hundreds of ways to be very smart. He may not have your particular mix but then you don't have his. Politics is very hidden at times. Takes some guessing to be particularly good at sussing it out. Politucs is about the future. Fact is you can't nail it unless you are willing to be wrong at times. In fact if you ate not willing to be wrong then you are no good at It at all. It is about hypothesis and then testing. And add to that comedy. He's got the chops.

8. I feel the same.

Plus, he's often a clueless sexist.

But his writers give him great monologues and comedy bits. It's just when he uses his own words that he falls short.

5. I was disappointed to read that in the morning paper. Look forward to

his show.

Lately he has been interviewing Democratic candidates.

He steps in it sometimes, but his show is good.

9. Yeah, Trump seems to end up on top after the most horrific scandals.

He's right. I'm tired of Trump getting away with everything that he does.

But it ain't over.
