Rico thought Maher was smarter than that...

...and that would be Bill Maher (photo), who apparently used the word nigger on the air:
Bill Maher has issued an apology after he said the N-word during a conversation with Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse on Friday night’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher.
“Friday nights are always my worst night of sleep because I’m up reflecting on the things I should or shouldn’t have said on my live show,” the comedian said in a statement on Saturday. “Last night was a particularly long night, as I regret the word I used in the banter of a live moment. The word was offensive and I regret saying it and am very sorry.”
Hours earlier, HBO issued a statement of their own, vowing to cut out the word in subsequent airings of the show. “Bill Maher’s comment last night was completely inexcusable and tasteless,” the network said in a statement to People magazine. “We are removing his deeply offensive comment from any subsequent airings of the show.”
During the interview on Friday, Maher, 61, sparked outrage when he responded to Sasse’s question, “Would you like to come work in the field with us?”
“Work in the fields?” Maher asked. “Senator, I’m a house nigger.” (The offensive term refers to African American slaves who were forced to work in the homes of plantation owners versus being forced to do agricultural work.)
Sasse, who looked slightly taken aback by the comment, chuckled but did not comment on the choice of word.
Chance the Rapper and Nick Cannon spoke out against Maher’s comment, with Chance calling on HBO to pull Maher’s show off the air .
Maher’s faux pas comes after Kathy Griffin acknowledged Tuesday that she “crossed the line” by posing for a photo with a replica of President Donald Trump‘s bloodied, decapitated head in her hand.
CNN has announced that Griffin will no longer appear on its New Year’s Eve special. She was fired by CNN from her New Year’s Eve job, which she shared with longtime friend and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, the day after her apology.
On Friday, the comedian appeared in a press conference, accusing Trump and his family of “bullying” her and “trying to ruin my life forever".
Rico says that Griffin used to be cute and funny, but she screwed herself with the Trump thing...
