Can Bill Maher use THAT word? Frank Ski’s Question of the Day

HBO Host & Comedian Bill Maher called himself a “House Nigga” in a joke.
MY OPINION: If There Is Any White Person in America that can use the “N Word” it’s Bill Maher!

(CNN)Comedian Bill Maher used a racial epithet during an interview Friday night with Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska on his HBO show, sparking outrage on social media.

Sasse was promoting his book, “The Vanishing American Adult,” on “Real Time With Bill Maher.”

The two were discussing teenagers and maturity when Maher mentioned that adults dress up for Halloween in California. He then asked Sasse if people do that in Nebraska.

“It’s frowned upon. We don’t do that quite as much,” Sasse said.

“I’ve got to get to Nebraska more,” Maher replied.

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

“Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house nigger,” Maher said.

Some audience members groaned while others laughed. Sasse briefly kept quiet.

“No, it’s a joke,” Maher said, breaking the silence.
