Bill Maher is a comic who doesn’t mind crossing certain lines.
However, he might have taken things a step too far. During the latest episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, Maher said the N-word. The word came up in conversation with Republican Senator Ben Sasse.
Here is how the word came up in conversation. The two were bantering about Maher coming out to Nebraska. Maher said “I gotta get to Nebraska more” and Sasse responded by saying “we’d love to have you work in the fields with us.” And then Maher responded with: “Work in the fields…Senator, I’m a house n*gga.”
Here is video of the conversation:

Of course, after this happened, Maher became the talk of social media, trending on Twitter almost instantly.
It will be interesting to see if there will be any fallout from this. Last time Maher got in any real trouble was when he famously lost his show Politically Incorrect after he said the 9/11 bombers weren’t “cowards.”
