Bill Maher makes ‘Popeye’s Chicken’ joke to black politician

By Around the Web

(TMZ) Bill Maher’s at it again — he made yet another joke on his show many people are calling racist … but this time he said it right to a black congressman’s face.

Bill was interviewing Rep. Will Hurd from Texas during the one-on-one segment of ‘Real Time’ Friday night when he challenged Hurd to explain why he’s a member of the Republican Party … especially since he came from the CIA.

Hurd replied, “I was in the CIA for almost a decade. I was the dude in the back alleys at 4 o’clock in the morning collecting intelligence on threats to the homeland,” … to which Maher commented, “That’s where they’d collect them, huh?”

It got some laughs, but then Bill added … “Wow, by the Popeyes chicken.”
