On last night’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, Republican strategist Mary Matalin made an appearance to discuss her new book that she co-wrote with her Democrat husband James Carville — and something seemed incredibly off.
Matelin was clearly under the influence of something. Her apparent state was somewhat put into context when Maher started out the segment by saying, “I know you’re very brave because you had a fall and you had a little medical problem and you still showed up.”
It seems that “medical problem” probably included being on some sort of pain medication, or she was under the influence of alcohol — or both. But considering that she could barely walk onto the stage, it probably wasn’t much of a mystery as to why she was having trouble in the speech department as well.
James Carville, who also happened to be a guest on the show Friday night, looked pretty uncomfortable as his wife ranted in slow motion. It made for some pretty awkward cable TV.
