Skip to comments.Not funny: Barack Obama laughs at Wanda Sykes "joke" about wanting Rush Limbaugh dead

What was Wanda Sykes thinking? Perhaps more to the point, what was President Barack Obama thinking when he laughed and smiled as the comedienne wished Rush Limbaugh dead?
Although the Left is reporting her White House Correspondents' Dinner speech as "taking shots" at Limbaugh and mocking everyone, that's a gross misrepresentation of what turned into a hateful and disgusting diatribe.
She then concluded: "Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails, I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs a good waterboarding, that's what he needs." Obama seemed to think this bit was pretty hilarious, grinning and chuckling and turning to share the "joke" with the person sitting on his right.
There's not much room for differing interpretations of what Sykes said. She called Limbaugh a terrorist and a traitor, suggested that he be tortured and wished him dead.
What was his crime? Hoping that Obama's policies - which he views as socialist - will fail.
That's way, way beyond reasoned debate or comedy and Obama's reaction to it was astonishing.
Hard to take from the man who promised a new era of civility and elevated debate in Washington.

Obama voters are what they voted for ...
They’re all sick psychos.
Can you imagine someone [let’s say a white person] saying something similar about 0bongo?
Obama is evil, he was just revealing what’s in his heart.
How about thinking about it happening to FUBO
It’s definitely no surprise that leftists want their political opponents dead,
look at history.
EVERY time they come to power, and get enough power, their political enemies die in great numbers.
Hope and change.
Bush was far more gracious when Colbert roasted him. No one would ever treat Obama that way.
At least the Britts get it.
Yup, and some willingly consider killing up to 25 million to get their way.
Damn, that is still funny!
I believe this is how you meant it?
I am sick of hearing that, why the hell should the rest of us suffer?
Have you written your STATE legislators in support of 10th amendment sovereignty legislation?
That’s the only way we won’t suffer along with the utopians.
Wanda does not think. She just robot like recites the left dribble.
“At least the Britts get it.”
You got that right!!!!
Barack Obama stand-up: hes not very funny
Living in California - no.
Imagine the Secret Service knocking on your door.
“Imagine the Secret Service knocking on your door,”
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! You made me laugh, but you are 100% right!
