“Bill Maher is somebody we are looking at very carefully and HBO for allowing him to make those defamatory statements.”
Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann may be coming for Bill Maher.
After last week hitting The Washington Post with a $250 million defamation lawsuit, Sandmann’s attorney told Fox News that the HBO comedian could be next, along with CNN.
“Certainly CNN and Bill Maher did things that we consider to have crossed the line. We think that the statements they made are defamatory, they’re not humorous and so certainly Bill Maher is somebody we are looking at very carefully and HBO for allowing him to make those defamatory statements.”

Maher last month joined the widespread vilification of Sandmann and his fellow students over their encounter with Native American protestor Nathan Phillips in Washington, DC. During his “Real Time With Bill Maher” monologue on Jan. 25, the liberal comedian called Sandmann a “little prick” who had been tainted by “lead poisoning and bad parenting.”
I don’t blame the kid, the smirking kid. I blame lead poisoning and bad parenting. And, oh yeah, I blame the fucking kid. What a little prick. Smirk-face. Smirk-faces. Please. Like that’s not a dick move at any age? Stick your face in this elderly man’s? And this smirking kid says he was just trying to “defuse the situation, by”— really?
You know what, next time you get into a fight, with your wife, or your husband, or your boyfriend, or your girlfriend, try that. Try getting two inches from their face with a shit-eating grin and see if it “defuses the situation.” You ask me and this kid should have done what everyone does during a drum solo: leave. But, I mean, I don’t spend a lot of time, I must tell you, around Catholic school children; but I do not get what Catholic priests see in these kids.

Before suing The Washington Post last week, and after a third-party investigation cleared the Covington students of any wrongdoing, Sandmann’s attorneys announced that they had celebrities, social media personalities, and news organizations in their sights.
Experts are divided on Sandmann’s chances of legal victory. But famed Harvard Law School attorney Alan Dershowitz told The Hill last week that the teen has “have a significant case” and that he was “interested to see what The Post says and how it justifies reporting that turned out to be less than accurate.”
