Comedian and host of HBO’s “Real Time” Bill Maher, channeled former Democratic Sen. Al Franken during a New Year’s Eve trip to Hawaii, when he groped actor Bob Saget while he was asleep.

Maher is seen in a photo on Twitter laughing as he mimics the pose Franken struck when he put his hands on radio host Leanne Tweeden during a United Service Organizations tour in 2006.

Actor Steven Weber joked Maher would be fired and replaced with former GOP Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann on Twitter and actress Clementine Ford asked if the picture was okay to laugh at.

This isn’t the first time Maher has stirred the pot in the public sphere. He accused Republicans of murder for proposing health care reform in July, and in June he referred to himself as a “house ni***r” when GOP Sen. Ben Sasse invited Maher to come work the fields in his home state of Nebraska.
