    Wanda Sykes shouted a series of expletives while giving the middle finger to the audience during a charity event in Boston Saturday. The comedian flipped off the crowd at Boston's TD Garden arena after she was booed for her anti-Trump comments at the 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser on behalf of the Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care. "I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president," Sykes told the crowd according to the Boston Herald. "He's just the first confirmed one, that's it." Sykes' comments were met with loud boos, prompting...

    Comedian Wanda Sykes confronted a Boston audience Saturday night after she was booed for making disparaging comments about President-elect Donald Trump at a charity stand-up comedy event. The 52-year-old comedian and actress was about five minutes into her set at the Cam Neely Foundation’s 22nd annual Comics Come Home fundraiser at the TD Garden when she was loudly booed for attacking Trump. "Its goiing to be okay,” Sykes had said. “I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president. He ain’t the first one. He’s just the first confirmed one.” When the comment...

  • Wanda Sykes Has No Remorse for 2009 Limbaugh Attack: 'He's Just a Big Bully' (Video)

    It was a performance that even liberal bomb-thrower Keith Olbermann said was over the top immediately after the fact - the May 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner, which Wanda Sykes took some harsh digs at conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh. However over a year later, the comedienne shows no remorse for her remarks about Limbaugh. She appeared on the Aug. 25 broadcast of CNN's "Larry King Live" and revisited the occasion, which she said she hoped Limbaugh's "kidneys failed" since he wanted President Barack Obama to fail, even though that part of her attack on Limbaugh was conspicuously missing...

    He's the most-listened-to personality in the history of U.S. radio, but Rush Limbaugh feared for his life recently and said he knows he faces destruction at some point, to the delight of some of the American public. In an e-mail sent to Zev Chafets, author of the new book "Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One," Limbaugh admitted, "I know I am a target and I know I will be destroyed eventually. I fear that all I have accomplished and all the wealth I have accumulated will be taken from me, to the cheers of the crowd. I know I am...

    The week-old story of Brit Hume's Christianity vs. Buddhism remarks is apparently still fodder for a good laugh, and comedienne Wanda Sykes attempted to squeeze out one more. The late-night talk show host arguably stepped over the line with a skit this week when she jokingly entertained ‘the notion that Jesus was willing to give Tiger Woods crabs. The Jan. 9 broadcast of Fox's "The Wanda Sykes Show" featured a sketch in which two actors playing Jesus and Buddha appeared as "guests" on the Fox News Channel show "The O'Reilly Factor" during which the former Fox News anchor expounded on...

    It might seem a little strange to see Fox News bashed on its Fox broadcast parent network, but that's what you would have witnessed if you tuned into "The Wanda Sykes Show," Saturday night's late-night alternative to NBC's "Saturday Night Live." On the Dec. 12 broadcast of "The Wanda Sykes Show," Sykes, made famous for her attacks on conservative talker Rush Limbaugh and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at last May's White House Correspondents Dinner, took a shot at the Fox News Channel for her perception that it lacks black correspondents (emphasis added). "So I've been digging around here and...
  • The Wanda Sykes Show (Fox), TV review

    It’s an Obama infomercial! No, a Lesbian Night on the Fox channel? Wait, it’s a soft porn comedy hour on a major American television network. Actually, it's none of the above. It’s the premiere of the Wanda Sykes Show, a new one-hour program competing in the late night lineup. But at this juncture, it’s hard to tell what the show really is. The much buzzed “late-night show by the first gay black woman” with warnings of adult language and content conjures up an array of possibilities. Sadly, none of them really go anywhere in this perplexing presentation masquerading as hip....

    RIGHT-WINGERS who've been making a big deal about Wanda Sykes' performance at the White House Correspondent's Dinner need to stop. I'm not buying all the ranting. There's no way they are as outraged as they've been acting about her remarks at the Saturday-night event. Someone needs to remind people that Sykes is a comedian. And a fairly raunchy one at that. Every year, organizers for this affair search for a smart and edgy performer to come onstage and stir the pot, as the old saying goes. And girlfriend did just that. Gave it a whole lot of elbow grease, too....

    Dick Cheney is out there. He is defending torture, dissing Colin Powell, and genuflecting before radio personality Rush Limbaugh as the high priest of what's left of conservatism. His refusal to go quietly, unlike his much-reviled boss, is risky. He was a laugh line more than once at Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner. But the media's focus on the sheer spectacle of the ex-veep's antics, and on the Republican vs. Democrat feud he's stoking, underestimates the way Cheney's principles still inform many of the country's most crucial policies. Like the creatures in the "Alien" films, Cheney has planted some vicious...
  • All the Rage--Wanda Sykes’ death wish is but the latest exhibit of leftist bloodlust.

The Left has made bloodlust for its political opponents de rigueur. The moment that desecrated one of our national institutions affected a more fundamental aspect of character.   Another Leftist Death Wish: Ho-Hum   The media have focused on the “controversy” surrounding Saturday’s Syke-o statements about Rush Limbaugh. Citing Rush’s hope that “socialism fails,” Wanda claimed: “He's...

    The stand-up comedian Wanda Sykes took only seconds in her disciplined 15 minutes at the White House Correspondents' Dinner—a naughty performance that mocked both Barack Obama and Rush Limbaugh—to lay out a vision for the Republican Party. Of course, Sykes didn’t mean to help the GOP, yet in the manner of a prophet she climbed up on the mountaintop of C-SPAN at the precise moment that the glamorous tribes of Washington, New York, and Hollywood had gathered to worship, and she spoke the words that came to her as if from a special effects Yahweh. Wanda Sykes articulated a simple...

    There's nothing un-funnier than Saturday night's jokes reviewed by the caffeinated light of Monday morning. Which is why we probably shouldn't quarterback a comedian over coffee when she was performing for a crowd primed on cocktails. That reasonable rule seems not to apply, however, when the venue is the White House Correspondents' Association dinner and one of the revelers happens to be the president of the United States. Whether he laughs, smiles or frowns carries political freight far beyond the moment.... In the days since the correspondents' dinner, reaction to Barack Obama's reaction to Wanda Sykes's one-liners has resembled a...

    I honestly hadn’t given too much thought to Wanda Sykes’ rather predictably meanspirited attempts to skewer Rush Limbaugh at the correspondent’s dinner last evening — it being de rigeur these days for the wannabe edgy to take shots at Limbaugh, and to receive at least tacit official sanction for doing so. And the President’s reaction suggested that she’d done just that. Had I more respect for Obama, I’d have expressed surprise and revulsion. As it stands, however, I was hardly surprised — either by the joke and its venue, or by Obama’s ostensible approval. – This latest from the White...

    MIAMI, (AP) -- Five men were convicted Tuesday of plotting to join forces with al-Qaida to destroy Chicago's Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices in hopes of igniting an anti-government insurrection. The jury in Miami acquitted another member of the so-called "Liberty City Six" in the sixth day of deliberations. Two previous trials ended in mistrials when jurors could not agree on the men's guilt or innocence. They were arrested in June 2006 on charges of plotting terrorism with an undercover FBI informant they believed was from al-Qaida. Defense attorneys said terrorist talk recorded on dozens of FBI audio and...

    I love Wanda Sykes, I always have. I laughed out loud watching her White House Correspondents’ Dinner routine (on the Web; Salon has never attended that particular circle jerk of DC insularity; maybe someday we will!) Sure it was off-color and, um, slightly out there – but that’s the point. Or it used to be. Even if I didn’t already love Sykes, my point of view would be: Once a barely elected president who started a devastating war on false pretenses can joke about those pretenses at that same dinner (Remember Bush looking behind sofas for WMDs? ) it’s hard...

    Conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh took the high road Monday following Wanda Sykes saying he is a terrorist and making other acerbic comments about him during a comedic routine at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner over the weekend. Talk-radio fans and political junkies buzzed in anticipation about what Mr. Limbaugh might say on his national, three-hour radio show. Instead of retaliating against Ms. Sykes, Mr. Limbaugh spent much of the show praising former Vice President Dick Cheney, who on Sunday was much kinder. "What motivates Dick Cheney," Mr. Limbaugh asked rhetorically numerous times during his show. "He has all...
