Maraniss: GOP Always ‘Overplay Their Hand,’ Aftermath of Bill Affairs ‘Served to Hillary’s Benefit’

<p>One of the more shameless defenders of the Clinton and Obama families in author David Maraniss appeared on MSNBC late Wednesday night with <em>The 11th Hour</em> host Brian Williams to lament that he&rsquo;s<strong> &ldquo;suffering a bit from PTSD&rdquo;</strong> from Donald Trump bringing up Bill Clinton&rsquo;s sexual escapades but not worried because their opponents always<strong> &ldquo;overplay their hand&rdquo; </strong>against<strong> &ldquo;Bill Clinton&#39;s defense attorney&rdquo;</strong> Hillary Clinton.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Mirroring their out-of-control segment attacking Clinton critics during the Republican National Convention (RNC), Maraniss began by telling Williams that earlier in the day, <strong>&ldquo;I had to turn the TV off&rdquo;</strong> because <strong>&ldquo;I was suffering a bit from PTSD from the late 1990s&rdquo;</strong> but seemed comforted because<strong> &ldquo;the Clintons benefit from the fact that whatever their flaws are, their opponent&#39;s flaws seem to be greater and become so obsessed with getting the Clintons that they overplay their hand.&rdquo;&nbsp;</strong></p>
