Bill Maher drops N-word on national TV, joins Kathy Griffin in the dog house

Kathy Griffin can breathe a sigh of relief.

Comedian Bill Maher, who frequently finds himself immersed in controversy, stepped in it big time on Friday while interviewing Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse.

The two were discussing Sasse’s new book, “The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance,” when Maher dropped the N-word.

Sasse had just finished telling Maher that adults don’t usually dress in costume for Halloween in Nebraska, prompting Maher to reply that he needs to “get to Nebraska more.”

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

“Work in the fields?” Maher asked incredulously. “Senator, I’m a house n***er.”

Sasse responded with an uncomfortable smile as the audience groaned in disapproval.

“It’s a joke,” Maher declared, which drew applause from the audience.

But social media was not applauding.

Not surprisingly, some tried to pin the blame on Sasse and President Donald Trump.

Conservative author, editor and pundit Mary Katharine Ham put it best.
