(CBrief) – The liberal host of the HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher” just made a stunning prediction about former President Donald Trump as he derided the Manhattan District attorneys investigation into him.
He said the case, that centers around alleged hush money payments that were sent to porn star Stormy Daniels, that has been led by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg is a “colossal mistake” as polls show that the former president’s popularity has increased.
“I really don’t want to give Donald Trump the satisfaction of talking about him. I thought when he was gone, he’d be gone a little bit,” the host said.
“But, you know, there is an ex-president out there now who’s going to be arrested — possibly. And he is talking about violence in the streets of his supporters if he does,” he said.
“I just would like to go on record in saying I think this is a colossal mistake if they bring these charges.
“Not just one, you know. I mean, yes, he’s done a lot of bad things, and I’m sure he did this — everything they accused him of [doing], he did,” the host said.
“But first of all, it’s not going to work. It’s going to be rocket fuel for his 2024 campaign.
“And it’s just going to look to MAGA nation like, ‘Oh, you know, you tried with Mueller, you tried with Ukraine, you tried with January 6. Now we go to the porn star? Really? You’re down to that?!’” he said.
