HBO host of “Real Time,” Bill Maher, shared a story about what former President Bill Clinton did one time to a girl that has captured the attention of many.
It was last week when Maher was speaking on his “Club Random” podcast when he told the story.
He said to his guest, Cedric the Entertainer, that he was “invited, I remember, a number of times to a Clinton event when he was out on the West Coast, I introduced him a couple of times,” The Western Journal reported.
This was at the World Trade Organization in Seattle.
This, it’s worth noting, would likely make it the 1999 meeting of the supranational organization, which wasn’t entirely dull excrement; while no period news stories mention Maher’s presence, that’s probably because the majority of reporting was focused on the riots surrounding the event that arguably served as a catalyst for the Occupy movement in the subsequent decade.
However, Maher said he thought it was “the boringest s***,” and Cedric agreed: “Yeah, like you know, ‘yes, we’ll let you bring the f***ing Kia into our country.’”
Anyhow, Maher recalled how “this is the 90s, when I was a swinging bachelor, so I brought this young lady on a date.” The cable host, it’s again worth noting, has never been married. He still tries to play the swinging bachelor role 20 years later: “I’m the last of my guy friends to have never gotten married, and their wives — they don’t want them playing with me. I’m like the escaped slave — I bring news of freedom,” he once bragged on his website.
“We get up to there, and she stands on one side of Clinton and I’m on the other side of him,” he said.
“And he spent the next five minutes looking me in the eye and lecturing me … why world trade was important and blah blah blah blah,” the host said. “We get off the line and I said to the girl, ‘Wow! Can you believe that he spent five minutes telling me about trade? Everybody else he talked to for two seconds.’
“She said: ‘Yeah, he was rubbing my back the whole time,’” he said.
In March former President Clinton made news again for something he likely did not want.
Soon after British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was found guilty, former President Clinton trended on Twitter.
Maxwell was found guilty by a jury of helping the late financier Jeffrey Epstein sexually abuse teenage girls.
“Maxwell was accused of recruiting and grooming four teenagers between 1994 and 2004 for Epstein, her former boyfriend, who killed himself in 2019 in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting trial on sex abuse charges of his own. She was convicted on five of six counts, including one count of sex trafficking. Lawyers for Maxwell, who faces up to 65 years in prison, vowed to appeal,” Reuters reported.
“During the month-long trial, jurors heard emotional and explicit testimony from four women who portrayed Maxwell as central to their abuse by Epstein. Three of the four said Maxwell herself touched their bare breasts or took part in the encounters, which often began as massages. Maxwell’s attorneys sought to undermine the women’s credibility, arguing that they were motivated by money to implicate Maxwell since all four had received million-dollar awards from a compensation fund for Epstein’s victims,” the report added.
“Maxwell will return to Brooklyn’s Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC), where she has been held in isolation since July 2020. Maxwell has voiced concerns about her treatment at the jail, asserting that guards have disrupted her sleep at night and that the stench of raw sewage has permeated her cell,” the report continued.
Not long after the verdict, Bill Clinton trended on Twitter because of his relationship with Epstein and Maxwell.
When you consider these five convictions for Maxwell, this picture becomes more glaring in the total absence of prosecution for the men on the other end of these flights. https://t.co/x7mHd5GM7P

The Maxwell trial is like the end of The Godfather. The regime tied up every loose end. No deals offers to Ghislaine. No names leaked. Nice and tidy.
To those in power, underage victims of a sex trafficker tied to Bill Gates and Clinton are “just business.”

The point of the #ghislanemaxwell trail appears to have been twofold: 1. Convict the obviously-guilty Epstein pimp Ghislaine Maxwell 2. Protect all the powerful people who were part of the Epstein-Maxwell pedophile ring. I’ll bet Bill Clinton’s handing out cocktails tonight!

Why is Bill Clinton not in jail

Clinton can’t escape from his relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Clinton has been dogged by his association with Epstein, who gained access to a collection of powerful men including politicians, business moguls, and even British royalty.
These figures were lured into a spider’s web of blackmail over visits to his steamy Caribbean island and trips on his private plane, dubbed the Lolita Express.
Now, more damning evidence of Clinton’s friendship with Epstein has emerged after a British tabloid published pictures of the disgraced philanthropist sex trafficker and his madame schmoozing with Clinton while he was in the White House.
The two were invited to the White House as VIP guests of the then-sitting president as attendees of a party thrown for high rollers who donated money for the refurbishment of the Oval Office in 1993.
Maxwell and Epstein were given a personal tour of “Clinton’s residence and the East Room during a reception,” a glimpse at how early that Clinton became intertwined with Epstein.
