Wanda Sykes roasts Obama, Bush, Cheney, and more

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Humor, Videos,

If you haven’t seen this one yet, be ready to laugh. Wanda Sykes kicked things off at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner last night with a comedy set that roasted , former President George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, , and many others. Heck, she even took Rush Limbaugh to task for saying that the hopes Obama fails, which Sykes said was outright “treason.”

The event was attended by many politicians, as well as celebrities like , , , , and more.



I totally agree with you 2LB. Sykes’ so-called “humor” is anything but funny. Can you imagine the outcry there would have been if, when George W. Bush was President, a Republican had even tactfully criticized the opposition at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Obama could have, at the least, remarked that Sykes’ comments were inappropriate and distanced himself from her hate speech.
