Bill Maher Drops Racial Slur During 'Real Time' Interview

Bill Maher is facing backlash after using a racial slur on live television.

The 61-year-old television personality was interviewing Nebraska’s Senator Ben Sasse for an episode of Real Time on Friday (June 2) when he dropped the slur.

During the interview, Senator Sasse extended an invite to his home state and jokingly asked Bill to join him on farming fields.

“Would you like to come work in the field with us?” Ben asked.

“Work in the fields? Senator, I am a house n****r,” Bill replied with a laugh.

He quickly followed up by telling the crowd it was a joke.

Bill has yet to make any further comment on his usage of the word.

    I am sick of this political correctness. A word can be used as a compliment or as an insult. It’s the tone of the voice and the intention of the use. Some people need to get over themselves.

    What a sick, sad society we have become.

    Leftists have no morals or ethics. Obama and his liberal cronies hate the Constitution and free market capitalism. He destroyed our economy with measures like the ACA and immigration amnesty. The “Affordable” Care Act has been nothing short of a disaster. My health insurance bill is up to $450/month. (Compare this to my $25 a month auto insurance from InsurancePanda or my $10/month renters insurance… both private enterprise!)

    The cultural Marxists have really done a number on Western youth, haven’t they? What a bunch of sick people.
