Bill Maher to Ben Sasse; ‘I’m A House N*gga’ 

On Friday night’s episode of HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher responded to guest Sen. Ben Sasse’s question, “Would you like to come work in the field with us?”

“Work in the fields?” Maher said. “Senator, I am a house n—.”

Sasse, who chuckled at the comment, appeared to bypass what Maher said, and didn’t comment on the word use.

As the audience applauded his reply, Maher stated it was a joke, but Twitter users were quick to jump on the HBO host’s comment.
