    1. I thought both the Senator and the audience were actually very uncomfortable at first. One of the reactions I'm seeing is "they just applauded!" and I think they did so after an uncomfortable pause where many of the audience were taken aback. I don't think their reaction was surprising really. A lot of people laugh when they're uncomfortable. I'd have been very uncomfortable. I probably would not have clapped.

    2. He should face extreme repercussions for this. The joke was distasteful and racist. I don't think he's racist, but he might be. I have no idea.

    3. There are other comedians who use that word and people don't find them offensive. Louis CK uses the word quite a bit. I wonder what the difference is? I feel differently when I hear it coming from Maher vs. CK, but why? There's something in the intent behind it that's different I think...

    4. The Kathy Griffin thing to me wasn't worse or better. They're different and they're stupid and inappropriate in their own way.

    Any who, I blame nobody but Maher on this one and I'm already not a fan of his. I don't think he's funny.

    I watch(ed) Maher about 90% of the time. Find him funny, intelligent and unafraid to argue with his own guest or party. However, since Trump got elected, I just can't watch him anymore. The entire hour show is just a crap on Trump party. No real effort to be funny, discuss issues, or consider another view. Just lazy.

    I didn't know CK said the N word. Don't know why he gets a pass.

    I don't think Mahers career will end over this. I do think a conservative comedian would be destroyed though. Selective outrage.

    That good, it really is. But there's still a large population, and multiple pew polls etc state this, that a large population of muslims support murdering, apostates, people who mock their prophet, and and suicide bombings.

    Oh yeah, can't forget that. However I sure as hell can't post that on fb. Even the people who would suppot my statement would say it's too.

    Sucks that I'm actually nervous about wearing something with the American Flag on it on the 4th of July.

    This is getting tiresome.

    They are scared to call the cops or threaten and expel students.

    Evergreen college should just be shut down. It lacks any credibility as an actual university at this point. I hope these degrees are perceived in about the same way as an online degree from the South Harmon Institute of Technology.
