When people in your own party are slamming you for a Wall St. Deal, maybe you outta rethink your strategy… And now Bill Maher is taking on the Obama deal in which the former Pres. is getting $400,000 for a Wall Street speech.
Bill Maher took to his show, “Real Time”, to address this. “So isn’t the best thing to do to take your $10 million book deal?” Maher said. “Can’t you live off that?”
Maher joined others on the far-left – like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren – who are calling Obama out for his apparent change of heart on the financial industry, especially after he talked tough on Wall Street “fat cats” during his time as commander-in-chief.
“It kind of looks like: when he’s on our team, we’re OK with it,” Maher said. “You could say that when a guy is president, he’s looking ahead to that $400,000 payday. And he’s not going to get it if, while he’s president, he’s going to do something to p*** them off.”
