*(Via Mediaite) – In an episode in which Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher chided Fox News for its renaming of President Obama’s birthday party as a “Hip-Hop BBQ,” the comic/commentator made another of his own frequent racial non sequiturs about the President.

Speaking about the recent debt ceiling deal, Maher quoted Speaker John Boehner saying he got 98% of what he wanted, which shows that “contrary to popular belief, black does crack.”

Maher’s joke grinds against the gears of his later criticism of Fox News. In case you missed it, the Network’s website created a stir when it repurposed a Politico post about the President’s birthday party, adding the headline “Obama’s Hip-Hop BBQ Didn’t Create Jobs.”
