Maher: Clinton is a ‘Lovely Lady, but She Couldn’t Fill the Function Room at the Olive Garden’

Talk show host Bill Maher appeared on CNN Wednesday evening to discuss what the Democratic party must do moving forward to be successful after President Trump’s win.

Maher touched on the big news of the day — that Hillary Clinton blamed everyone but herself for the 2016 election loss — and got real on why she really lost.

Democrats need to “ease up on identity politics,” said Maher. “Also, go where the energy is in the party. Hillary is a lovely lady, but she couldn’t fill the function room at the Olive Garden — and there was a 70-year-old man who was getting crowds of 20,000 young people to come see him.”

Watch the clip above to see why Maher says Hillary “was not a great candidate.”
