    Not what his black guest told him. The one invited the next week to 'school' him except he didn't allow any schooling.

    Yes he was tough in him but he didn't think he was a racist. He will be on his show many times,

    That has been Maher's position on all the political correctness from the left hence, why all the "but's" in his apology I believe. Good lord considering the deplorable behavior Trump demonstrated during his campaign up to the present and nothing is being said about it because his bar is so low.

    but what I did find disturbing is to go into the theater we had to go through all kinds of security and I mean thorough. I wonder if he got death threats
    I'd be surprised if he hadn't.

    That's true.

    Dyson was booked as the first guest specifically to do the "apology tour" portion of the show.

    And, he did his job, giving a pretty good grilling to Maher.

    Maher thought it was done, but when Ice Cube came out later, he laid into him, too.

    Maher didn't have much funny to say, just sat there and took it, as he should have.

    He seemed surprised that he was being roasted so badly on his own show after he had already "apologized" profusely.

    Blacks can use that word, but even a lib like Maher can't, as he found out.

    Which is a double standard, of course.

    White people who are having trouble accepting an apology for a use of the n-word.

    No, there is no punchline, that's the whole joke.

    I have a hard time believing the same people who are so enthusiastically accepting Maher's "apology" would be nearly so forgiving if it was Ben Sasse who dropped an n bomb.

    Here, allow me to explain:

    (1) Bill Maher is a comedian, an entertainer. Such people are expected to say edgy things.

    (2) Ben Sasse is a sitting Senator of the United States. Such are people are expected to conduct themselves with dignity.

    Spot the difference?

    In other words, it's ok if someone the left likes uses the worst racial slurs possible. Racism isn't ok when it comes in the form of a joke. This isn't the first time Maher's racism has been exposed.
