BILL MAHER ON POLITICAL POWER

The news is not all funny on the latest New Rules from Bill Maher, but these are the times we live in. If you have power, you can amass even more power. For those who had objections to Hillary Clinton, they don’t look so important now, do they?    Also on that show, a…
