Skip to comments.Not funny: Barack Obama laughs at Wanda Sykes "joke" about wanting Rush Limbaugh dead
Posted on 05/10/2009 11:58:37 AM PDT by fiodora
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!
Wanda was channelling Obama
Wanda Sykes is a comedian, so I’ll excuse her crassness and vulgarity... It’s her job. Obama on the other hand is a fool for laughing.
Obama insists he's a Christian, that's all that matters. His support of abortion at any time for any reason, the pittance he and his wife gave to help "The least of these" in charity contributions, his belief that people in his income bracket were undertaxed while failing to voluntarily pay more... none of this matters.
Anyone who would compare President Obama's works to his words is obviously a bigot, a racist and a hater.
Any Democrat will tell you that Christians need to separate their morals, values and principles from their day to day behavior. Just as Satan would have us do.
Most "Christian Democrats" would agree.
The Atheists of the socialist democrat Party think :shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
- savage personal attacks are humor
- slow painful torture and murder of children is choice.
- tyranny is liberty
Looks like you’re gonna have to move, come shtf time...
My mother died of “kidney failure”.
Wanda Sykes has insulted every person who had someone close dead of kidney failure..
How malign and vulgar the White House is today...
thanks God I did not vote for Obama....
Also... Joking about 9/11 is hardly tasteful. The families of those killed deserve a full apology from the correspondence dinner and the President.
There is NO biblical justification for liberalism.
“Liberal Christian” is an oxymoron. And I’d challenge any “liberal” theologian to give me scripture that justifies their positions on the issues,
especially the nature of man. (Liberalism is a extension of the belief that man is basically good instead of basically wicked and sinful.)
We can still think it can’t we?
I believe we’ll soon be looking on 9/11 and the 3000 dead as a “quaint and trivial precursor” to what is going to happen.
She isn’t funny. I couldn’t stand to watch her commercials. She’s annoying.
I’m getting to like Toby Harnden better and better. Other than Marc Steyn, he may be the best commentator on Obama out there.
When Obama insulted the Prime Minister of the UK and couldn’t even be bothered to have dinner with him, he really made a serious mistake. Ditto when he insulted Sarkozy. Ditto when he insulted Poland and the Czech Republic. This is all going to come back and bite him. And he really, really deserves it.
No one but a malignant narcissist worshipper could like this guy. Unfortunately we seem to have millions of those in our broken Hollywood style culture.
Call the National Kidney foundation live.
Donate 1 Million Dollars and challenge Barrack and this pond scum comedian to do the same.
Promplty adopt this along with his current Leukemia telethon and garner even more millions.
Watch them all squirm...
“Ditto when he insulted Poland and the Czech Republic. This is all going to come back and bite him.”
Ditto when he bowed to the Saudi King, that will come back and bite him in the bow, too!
“And Id challenge any liberal theologian to give me scripture that justifies their positions on the issues”
By there very nature they have no respect for scripture. So, they would never use scripture to justify their positions unless it was a horrible misuse of scripture.
More like "Imagine the Secret Service knocking DOWN your door".
“How about thinking about it happening....”
Rather makes me smile, however the “thought” and internet police are a mere knock away when it come to hating “perverts.”
You’re right, “truth alone”.
They even deny the existance of truth, because once you accept the existance of truth, logic compels rejection of liberal ideology.
However, when arguing this point, I push my opposite into a position of denying the veracity of scripture. At that point, I simply let them live in that hell.
Of course, I am sure that there were no 0bama jokes last night.
Why this would surprise anyone is beyond me. Filth likes filth.
What else can you expect from a National Socialist?
“Wanda Sykes is a comedian,...” Dude what drugs are you taking? Sykes, like the un-talented Margaret Cho, have NO comedic talent what so ever.
And Hannity needs to have a fundraiser for the children of cops killed in the line of duty. One of Obama’s budget cuts gutted the fund
” At least the Britts get it.”
And unfortunately, they are the only ones to really report it.
I hate this man. I never hated Clinton I was disgusted by him, but I hate his man.
Wishing death upon public figures has a long tradition of being funny
Here are some other similar jokes:
Where is Lee Harvey Oswald when ya need him?
I hope Oprah drowns in cholesterol
Maybe that liberal will pass away from “ugly”
Gays should choke on it.
We need to reorganize this place ....all you inept bureacrats throw yourselves on your swords.
Then of course there are the abortion jokes that liberals like....
With all this full bore attack on Rush Limbaugh from the left, beginning with Obama calling him out by name ( unprecedented by a POTUS)...
I seriously begin to wonder when Limbaugh will have had enough and pull out the nuclear option...that is, begin asking, on air, about the birth certificate, the college records, the cauterized passport. Create a buzz that cannot be ignored.
Start the dialogue out front and relentlessly.
Holding their powder, for whatever mysterious reason ( perhaps sponsors would pull out, microphones would go quiet?) has not served conservative radio at allObama is more emboldened than ever.
And he is an unaccomplished, high riding fraudmerchandised and packaged deployed to engineer fundamental altering of this country.
And we stand by the sidelines in disbelief.
What would they say if Rush was to make a comment about sickle cell?
std ACORN tactic...the community organizer in chief ‘wants dead’ (or at least choked by piano wire) each and every one on George Soros’ enemies list! AIG, Bankers, Abstinence promoters, gun owners, stockholders, in general, anyone tainted in the slightest by growth, capitalism, or any of those traditional values that have made this country great!
