Comedian Ralphie May On Hillary's Email Scandal: 'How Bad Do You Want Her For This Benghazi S--t?'

Comedian Ralphie May stopped by HuffPost Live to discuss his new Netflix special "Ralphie May: Unruly" and said he doesn't understand the country's fixation on Hillary Clinton's email scandal.

The controversy began when it was revealed that the former Secretary of State used a personal email account instead of an official government address, and deleted more than 30,000 emails that her attorneys had deemed "personal and private."

May told host Ricky Camilleri he was uninterested in the matter, but the scandal seemed to be a ploy to raise suspicions about Clinton's involvement in the 2012 attack in Benghazi.

"Hey, let the woman get her advertisements for dick pills just like the rest of us, you know? It's like, who gives a shit … you know? I don't care. If someone's hacking her emails, good. Most emails are boring as balls anyways. And they've gotta look through 55,000," he said. "I mean, God, how bad do you want her for this Benghazi shit? I don't think there's a story there at all."

May questioned the scrutiny over Clinton's emails, especially after President George W. Bush drew the U.S. into a deadly war in the Middle East, but exited the White House unscathed.

"You know, they're crippling her over the death of four Americans, meanwhile, no one's going after 'W' for a loss of 5,000 Americans in Iraq and a war that we didn't need to go to," he said.
