Comedian Bill Maher went after President Trump and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Monday night, saying both “committed obstruction of justice” but Trump did so “in much worse fashion.”

Maher told CNN host Chris Cuomo “there’s a lot of reasons why the Democrats lost,” with many of them surrounding Clinton being “a terrible candidate.”

“She committed obstruction of justice” by “smashing up phones and hard drives,” Maher said, adding, “Now, Trump did, I think, in much worse fashion.”

Maher added the media “over-covered” the Clinton email scandal, noting he believes the coverage affected the 2016 election. 

“They over-covered it,” he said. “They beat it to death.”

Ultimately, Maher said he doesn’t trust the media ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
