Liberal comedian Bill Maher has again made an insulting comment about a prominent Republican woman, and it could come back to bite the Democrats, says Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

On his HBO show, “Real Time,” Friday, Maher, who donated $1 million to the super PAC supporting President Barack Obama, discussed Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen’s recent remark that Ann Romney, wife of  the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, “never worked a day in her life,” Politico reports.

Obama quickly distanced himself from the comment, and Rosen was forced to apologize. But Maher just doubled down on the insulting words, according to Politico. “What she meant to say, I think, was that Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house to work,” Maher said.

The Obama camp moved quickly to separate itself from Maher’s comments too. “The White House must know this is bad news for Democrats ... if they don’t handle it correctly,” Scarborough said.

“This is fascinating, because Bill Maher has said some extraordinarily insensitive things in the past, and the White House has ignored it. ... Notice how quickly they jumped out and distanced themselves, which tells me that they’re really seeing in the polls that this does matter”

Maher previously has made lewd, demeaning comments about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. His $1 million donation to Priorities USA Action makes him the largest contributor to the super PAC.
