Ice Cube takes Bill Maher to task over N-word controversy

Ice Cube takes Bill Maher to task over N-word controversy

"Unfortunately, this week I find that I'm the news maker", Maher said, greeting Dyson.

Bill Maher on Friday night hosted the first episode of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" since using a racial slur during an interview last week with Sen.

He also gave Maher the business about his racial "transgression" (Maher's words). He accepted Maher's apology, but he wasn't through. "We are a trained thing that just tried to get a laugh". But Dyson suggested that his use of the word was an "unconscious reflex" that comes out of a culture of white privilege, even among caucasians who don't have any history of making racist remarks. "But I said no, apologies are sometimes appropriate ... this is appropriate".

"Now, the guy who was here [Sasse], it's not his's all on me. And I apologize. And you know, more than that I can't do".

Barely addressing the controversy in his traditional opening monologue, Maher faced the studio audience and HBO viewers by saying, "Thank you for letting a sinner in your midst" before turning the conversation to "someone worse than me - Donald Trump". Maher repeatedly expressed regret, saying it was an off-the-cuff comment.

Maher responded the show was meant to be both.

It nearly defied belief to watch Hillary throw the Democratic National Committee under the bus - which she did with a vengeance . Moreover, Clinton said that the Russians' campaign to spread "fake news" and leak emails were potentially "guided" by Americans.

He stressed that he was cool with Bill and wasn't trying to "get on his case" but he feels like it was a "teachable moment" and that Bill has been coming close to crossing the line for a while, saying, "You've got a lot of black jokes". And I think you just have to not step on some of the political messages that you sayin' with a joke, because some things just ain't amusing, you know what I mean? This week's episode had a totally different tone, as he invited Ice Cube on to discuss the incident. Because I think it's a lot of guys out there, who cross the line 'cause they a little too familiar or they think they too familiar. Obviously I told Dr. Dyson, comedians they react.

"It's like a knife, man", actor/musician Ice Cube told Bill Maher about the host's use last week of the N-word. You can use a weapon or you can use it as a tool. "By white people. And we not gon" let that happen again.

"That's our word now", he continued, "and you can't have it back".
