Bill Maher used the phrase “house n***er” in a live-televised interview tonight, likely bringing an end to his long and annoying career on cable television.
What’s worse, Maher didn’t use the words in a historical context or with air-quotes…but while referring to himself. Disgustingly, he even smirked after he said it.
The liberal HBO audience responded with classless applause, joining with Maher’s quote itself (while speaking to Senator Ben Sasse from Nebraska, no less!) to provoke an immediate uproar on social media.
Republicans and Democrats are already coming together in demanding Maher’s release from HBO.
