Bill Maher has been saying horrible things for decades.
And for some odd reason, networks keep giving the liberal propaganda host a voice on television.
But on Real Time w/ Bill Maher on Friday, Maher made a sick racial epithet to Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) and HBO quickly condemned it.
Maher referred to himself as a “house n***r” and some in his liberal audience were instantly squeamish, but others laughed.
Maher also tried to laugh it off but that wasn’t enough.
“Bill Maher calling himself a “house n****” on Friday’s episode of Real Time has sparked serious outrage across social media and caused many people, including some prominent black social justice activists, to call for the HBO host to be fired.
During a conversation with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), Maher told the lawmaker: ‘I’ve gotta get to Nebraska more.’
‘You’re welcome. We’d love to have you work in the fields with us,’ Sen. Sasse jokingly replied.
Maher said in response:: ‘Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house n****.’
Met with a mix of groans and laughs from the audience, Maher said, ‘It’s a joke.’”
Following the show on Saturday morning, HBO quickly put out a statement, which ABC News tweeted.

Following HBO’s statement, Bill Maher issued an apology of his own – but it was painfully obvious they forced him to do it.
“Friday nights are always my worst night of sleep because I’m up reflecting on the things I should or shouldn’t have said on my live show.
Last night was a particularly long night as I regret the word I used in the banter of a live moment. The word was offensive and I regret saying it and am very sorry.”
That is an awful apology in an audacious “woe is me” sense.
Of course the Twitterverse exploded and demanded he be fired.
Yet, HBO hasn’t done it and it’s puzzling why they don’t just pull the plug.
And if HBO does decide to do so, this wouldn’t be the first time he was fired.
In 2001, on Maher’s ABC show Politically Incorrect – following the attacks of September 11th, 2001 – Maher actually said more disgusting things.
On September 17th Maher said,
“We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That’s cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, [it’s] not cowardly.”
Consequently, he was fired.
And Maher has used the N-word before.
“This isn’t the first time Maher has dropped the N-word during a TV broadcast.
The 61-year-old comedian said during a September 2010 interview with Larry King that Republicans referred to President Barack Obama as ‘Kenyan, which is ‘code for n*****.’”
‘That’s the new Kenyan, Larry. And Kenyan, of course, was code for [the N-word]. But that’s where they are. They can’t say it out loud.
But that’s where this whole campaign is going to be,’ Maher said according to a CNN transcript.”
So what’s taking HBO so long to fire him? Because meanwhile, this liberal mouth-breather keeps making asinine comments offensive to both conservatives and liberals.
It’s time for him to go and HBO knows it.
