‘Oh, screw this’: Conservatives come swinging when Sasse gets blamed for Bill Maher’s N-word

In liberal America, a disturbed bully traumatizing the 11-year-old son of the President of the United States — see Kathy Griffin — is the real victim because of the fierce pushback to her vile actions.

…and the man sitting opposite a liberal who spouts the N-word is the real culprit.

In what boggles the mind, unhinged liberals are going after U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse, who happened to be sitting across from Bill Maher when the acerbic comedian dropped a racial slur.

Not that Sasse is taking the heat lying down.

The two were discussing the Republican lawmaker’s new book when Sasse jokingly told Maher he was welcome in his home state of Nebraska, saying “we’d love to have you work in the fields with us.”

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

The kerfuffle over Sasse’s reaction, or the lack thereof, prompted a response from the senator — Twitter’s 140 character limit proving to be no friend to the politician:


So why is Sasse to blame, other than because he’s a Republican? According to Yashar Ali, the former co-chair of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, the Nebraska senator did not express enough horror to his liking:

Never mind that a look of extreme discomfort was written across Sasse’s face, no group deflects better than liberals when in a bind.

Of the many responses to Ali’s nonsensical deflection, conservative journalist Mary Katherine Ham summed it up best with this: “Oh, screw this.”

Here’s a sampling of other reactions from Twitter:



Hell, even a few liberals refused to buy into the ruse, as seen in a tweet from Mother Jones’ editor in chief Clara Jeffery:
