YOU WOULD NEVER WANT THIS DUDE IN YOUR FOX HOLE …
Following the Bill Maher “house ni**er” comment controversy from HBO’s “Real Time” show, Sen. Al Franken has now canceled his appearance.. It wasn’t too long ago that Sen. Franken (D-MN) said he would stand behind liberal comedian Kathy Griffin and appear with her after her ill-fate Trump decapitated head stunt. Guess what, Franken flip-flopped on his words and has since canceled his appearance with Griffin too. This is kind of interesting seeing that Franken got his fame in life from being a former SNL cast member. If there is anyone who would have stood behind fellow comedians, one would have thought it would have been Stuart Smalley. Maher has since apologized for using the term. But the damage has been dome. Because a liberal politician pandering and schilling a book has no room for context of words.
It is rather interesting to see libs attack their own. I guess its a good think Richard Pryor is no longer able to do his act, or Eddie Murphy for that fact. Who finds it fascinating that the Democrat party had no problem electing for year, Sen. Robert Byrd from West Virginia, a former member of the KKK and Exalted Cyclops, yet what Maher said is just completely wrong?
A spokesperson for Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) confirmed to HuffPost that the senator is canceling his appearance on the upcoming episode of “Real Time” in the wake of host Bill Maher’s use of a racial slur on-air.
“Senator Franken believes that what Bill Maher said was inappropriate and offensive, which is why he made the decision not to appear on the next episode of ‘Real Time,’” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “He was glad to see Bill, who the Senator considers to be a good friend, apologize and express sincere regret for his comment.”
Last Friday, Maher joked that he was a “house n****r” while in conversation with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who invited Maher to “work in the fields” of his represented state. Maher later called his use of the term “offensive.”
The backlash was strong enough for Maher to apologize ? something he’s known for rarely doing ? and for HBO to confirm that the network currently has no plans to fire him.
