On April 17, 2015, Clay Aiken made a visit to the TV show, Real Time With Bill Maher. This HBO show was an hour long and recorded in front of a live audience on Friday nights.
Maher is a controversial man who is known for his sarcastic attitude…but he is also known for his intelligence. Real Time usually features a panel of guests who discuss current events, usually in the fields of politics and the media. Week after week, most of his guests are well-versed in the subject being discussed. According to Wikipedia, his guests include:
experts such as journalists, professors and politicians participate in the panel, and fewer actors and celebrities are included.
On the night that Clay visited Real Time, Bill took the time to chat with Clay about his political run and his life after Idol. They also talked about how Bill had ripped into Clay’s congressional run…They seemed to have come to an understanding.
One of the fascinating things that happened because of this show was the many tweets that were so positive about Clay. The following are only a few:
@dlboardman: Weird when the guy from @AmericanIdol is the smartest talking head on #realtime.
@yellows_rock: @dlboardman I noticed that also. Good move, @clayaiken
@clayaiken saw you on real time tonight. The integrity you displayed Is great. Stay in politics, keep fighting. I’m in FL. Wish we had you.
Clay Aiken on @RealTimers has been a real treat. Guy looks totally different now. Plus he’s informed and pushing for important issues.
i never thought i’d see the day where i’d agreed with clay aiken on political issues
@RealTimers I have a whole new found respect for Maher tonight. Great interview with Clay Aiken. Props to Aiken for trying to help people.
It is fun to read these tweets and Clay certainly had a great evening on the show!
Both of these videos are just partials, but there is a lot of Clay
to hear and see.
