Friday, liberal TV show host Bill Maher used the “N-word” on this week’s episode of his HBO show “Real Time” during an interview with Senator Ben Sasse.

During the interview, Maher jokes about visiting Nebraska more. Sasse says to Maher:

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

Bill Maher responded:

“Senator . . . Work in the fields? I’m a house n*gga.”

Watch the clip below:

Republican #NeverTrump Senator Ben Sasse laughed at the joke.

The controversial remarks blew up over night.

Ben Sasse tweeted out a response early this morning.


Am walking off a redeye from LAX.
3 reflections on @billmaher
1. I’m a 1st Amendment absolutist. Comedians get latitude to cross hard lines.


2. But free speech comes with a responsibility to speak up when folks use that word. Me just cringing last night wasn’t good enough.

3. Here’s what I wish I’d been quick enough to say in the moment: “Hold up, why would you think it’s OK to use that word?…

“…The history of the n-word is an attack on universal human dignity. It’s therefore an attack on the American Creed. Don’t use it.” https://twitter.com/BenSasse/status/870949246094258177 …
