Comedian and talk show host Bill Maher has voiced his opposition to the possibility of an indictment against former President Donald Trump, stating that such a move would only serve to strengthen his support among his base.
Maher made his comments during a recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
Maher’s criticism was directed at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump, which centers around an alleged affair with adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Maher argued that pursuing Trump on this issue would be a mistake and would only galvanize his supporters.
Maher’s comments come at a time when many in the Democratic party are grappling with how to deal with the ongoing presence of Trump in the national conversation.
Some believe that focusing too much on Trump will only serve to strengthen his base, while others argue that it is important to hold him accountable for any wrongdoing.
