Oh My: Bill Maher Drops The N-Word While Interviewing Republican Senator

Comedian Bill Maher loves trashing conservatives in his acts, but he’s right on Islamic extremism and political correctness. At the same time, regardless of free speech advocacy, when you use a racial slur, there’s going to be hell to pay. On his show last night, Maher was interviewing Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse when he decided to drop the n-word (via Daily Beast):

Halloween used to be a kid thing,” Maher remarked.

“It’s not anymore?” said Sen. Sasse.

“Not out here,” explained Maher. “No, adults dress up for Halloween. They don’t do that in Nebraska?”

“It’s frowned upon. Yeah, we don’t do that quite as much,” he replied.

“I’ve gotta get to Nebraska more,” offered Maher.

“You’re welcome. We’d love to have you work in the fields with us,” joked Sen. Sasse.

Then it happened: “Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house ni**a.”

Now, some have gone after Sasse during the exchange, probably because he was smiling during these awful remarks. Yet, from the video, it looks as if Sasse is offering more of an awkward and discomforted laugh. I mean, who uses that language in a normal interview? Sasse might be part of the collateral damage, but the real heat will probably bear down on Maher for using the term. 

After the Kathy Griffin Trump beheading fiasco, you wouldn't think it could get much worse for Hollywood liberals. Bill Maher apparently said, "hold my beer."
