Wanda Sykes Rocks 2009 White House Correspondents Dinner

May 10th, 2009 // 9 Comments

The comedian took to the pulpit in front of the crowd of famous faces. Sykes teased President Barack Obama about the numerous shirtless pictures of him in the media, his basketball games and managed to touch upon issues of race and politics with an edge that only Wanda can deliver.

Girlfriend did not pull any punches and I’m not doing them justice here in this blog post. You’ll have to watch them for yourselves.

It was an impressive array of celebrities in the audience, but none whose smiles were bigger than the President and First Lady Michelle Obama.

    Mariska Hargitay always beautiful.She is not afraid to dare and example of the 2008 Emmy was wonderful.

    I loved Wanda Sykes’ jokes at the Dinner, especially the one about Rush Limpbaugh. I am STILL laughing. I just wished she was not so self restraining! OsiSpeaks[dot]com

    I love the clothes of Kate Holmes, Demi Moore and Mariska Hargitay (beautiful). Not like Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman and Tyra Banks.

    I think Obama and Wanda Sykes SUCK.
    I guess saying I hope someone’s kidneys fail is somehow nicer that saying “nappy headed hos?”. Don Imus anyone? Double standard CRAP

    Amen Molly!!!!

    I was taught that the Pres. was to conduct himself with integrity, honor and dignity. To laugh at a comedian saying she wishes another human being’s kidneys would fail , not to mention the other crude and ignorant comments made by this woman makes me ashamed. Actually, it surprised me, I thought this was the sort of language that Pres. Obama said was divisive. I guess it’s only divisive when it comes from someone that isn’t one of his followers. I wonder if Wanda Sykes will be banned from England now. And NO I do not like Michael Savage either. By the way I have never heard Mr. Limbaugh wish someone harm. He talks about his political opinions. What is this …a reality show ?
