Maher Criticizes Obama’s 400K Speech: “It Kind Of Looks Like When He’s On Our Team, We’re Okay With It”


The Real Time panel got heated Friday night in the online-only pOvertime post-show segment when they discussed former President Obama's upcoming speech to Wall Street firm Cantor-Fitzgerald where he will reportedly rake in $400,000. Conservative panelist Tara Setmayer and actor-filmmaker Rob Reiner had no issue with Obama collecting high speech engagement fees. However, host Bill Maher criticized the former president, calling it hypocritical for him to receive such a "payday" while the left criticized Wall Street for the country's woes when he was in office. Maher said progressives are giving Obama a pass. The HBO host said receiving such a high fee makes it look like the former president was not as harsh as he could have been on Wall Street while he was in office so he could look forward to a high engagement fee. "It kind of looks like when he's on our team, we're okay with it. You could say that when a guy is a 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 piss them off," Maher said. "Isn't the best thing to do is to take your $10 million book deal?" Maher asked. "Can't you live on that?" Watch the full Overtime panel discussion:

Full: Trump Touts First 100 Days At PA Rally: “Just Beginning Our Fight”; CNN, MSNBC “Fake News”


President Donald J. Trump holds a rally in Harrisburg, PA at the PA Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in the New Holland Arena on the 100th day of his presidency. Trump held the rally in lieu of attending the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Transcript of Trump trashing the press: PRESIDENT TRUMP: A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation's capital right now. (APPLAUSE) TRUMP: They are gathered together for the White House Correspondents dinner without the President. (APPLAUSE) TRUMP: And I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington swamp spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd, and much better people. Right? (APPLAUSE) CROWD: USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! TRUMP: And look at the media back there. They would actually rather be here, I have to tell you. That's right. Media outlets like CNN and MSNBC are fake news. Fake news. And they are sitting and they are wishing in Washington, they are watching right now they're watching, and they would love to be with us here tonight. But they are trapped at the dinner which will be very, very boring. But next year maybe we will make it more exciting for them in Washington. We will show up. But we have a good chance of showing up here again next year, too. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) [19:55:55] TRUMP: The truth is there is no place I would rather be than right here in Pennsylvania to celebrate our 100-day milestone to reflect on an incredible journey together and to get ready for the great, great battles to come and that we will win in every case, OK. We will win. Because, make no mistake, we are just beginning in our fight to make America great again. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) TRUMP: Now before we talk about my first 100 days, which has been very exciting and very productive, let's rate the media's 100 days. Should we do that? Should we do it? Because, as you know, they are a disgrace. According to a morning consult poll, more than half of Americans say the media is out of touch with everyday Americans and they have proven it. According to media research center, 89 percent of the media's coverage of our administration has been negative and purposely negative and perhaps that's because according to the center for public integrity 96 percent of journalists who made donations in the last election gave them to our opponent. Does anybody remember who our opponent was? That was some opponent. Finally, according to a poll last year from the "Associated Press" only six percent of Americans have a lot of confidence in America. That's very bad. That's much lower than Congress, by the way. But I'll give you an example of something really incredible. That's right. Get them out of here. Get them out. CROWD: USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! TRUMP: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Do we love our law enforcement or what? And I want to thank the fire marshals. They have a lot of people standing outside. We really maxed out. We broke the all-time record for this arena. How old is this arena? This is not — we broke the all-time record. And I don't have a guitar, which is pretty tough. So just as an example of media take the totally failing "New York Times." arena? This is not a — we broke the all-time record. And I don't have a guitar, which is pretty tough. So just as an example of media, take the totally failing New York Times. (BOOING) Pretty soon they'll only be on the Internet. The paper is getting smaller and smaller. Do you ever notice? It's starting to look like a comic book, it's getting so… (LAUGHTER) But I will tell you, because I watched, and I used to be in the real estate business, they sold their beautiful New York Times building in Manhattan, a cathedral to journalism, such a beautiful, beautiful building, for around $130 million, and a group that bought it later sold it for approximately $500 million. And now they live in a very ugly office building in a crummy location. (LAUGHTER) Next, they buy the Boston Globe newspaper, with losses, for $1.3 billion, invest millions and millions and millions of dollars to get it going, and in the end, they sell it for zero, they give it away. And then they write nasty editorials and op-eds telling me how I should be handling world events and our country. Tell me… (BOOING) But that's what we have. They're incompetent, dishonest people who after an election had to apologize because they covered it, us, me, but all of us, they covered it so badly that they felt they were forced to apologize because their predictions were so bad. Do you remember their predictions? They lost a lot of people because of the way they covered. So here's the story. If the media's job is to be honest and tell the truth, then I think we would all agree the media deserves a very, very big, fat, failing grade. (APPLAUSE) (BOOING) Very dishonest people. And not all of them. You know, we call it the fake news. Not all of them. Do you notice now, they're using — everybody's using the word fake news. Where did you hear it first, folks?
