    Wanda Sykes Rips Donald Trump, Calls Birthers Racist
    First Posted: 05/ 6/11 08:49 AM ET Updated: 05/ 6/11 09:29 AM ET


    Wanda Sykes has never pulled punches, especially when it comes to controversy and politics. On Thursday night, she delivered a jab to Donald Trump, and a full-on smack down of conservative birthers.

    Before her scheduled performance in Vancouver, Sykes spoke to the Vancouver Sun about her take on the right wing attacks on President Obama.

    “I feel sorry for ’em, they’re just sad,” she said of the birthers. “I love that they’re hanging it on ‘Well, he’s not from this country’ when they should just face it: You’re having issues because a black man is president. That’s what it is, and you need to deal with that, to work with that.”

    Of course, last week, Obama presented his official long-form birth certificate to the public, though that hasn't quieted some on the right down very much. That includes potential presidential candidate Donald Trump, who both took credit for forcing Obama to produce the certificate, and said that he would have to investigate further into the matter.

    Trump's act has not exactly impressed Sykes.

    “He’s not happy unless he’s relevant in some way,” she told the paper. “He wants people to be talking about him. I thought he would be happy enough to finally have a decent season of 'Celebrity Apprentice' but, you know, he had to make a little bit more noise than that, I guess.”

    Sykes has long been outspoken politically; she took on Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh (whom she called the 20th 9/11 high jacker) at the 2009 White House Correspondents Dinner.

    Oh, so Sykes can have her own passionate political beliefs but Trump can't??

    Sounds like a hypocrite to me.

    Passionate political beliefs that fall into stupidity, like challenging obvious facts that so many conspiracy theorist birthers deny, then it becomes just so much blather.

    Trump jumped on this bandwagon months ago because he is a self-promoting grandstander and thot it would garner support with the growing T-party types taking over the right wing. Instead, after the concensus was that he is a fool, he saw he had no chance to run for prez and is now back to his entertainment venue for the unthinking masses.




    If it's the right direction - swim upstream.

    Ah, but the man knows how to make money and "trump" bankrupcy (pun intended). We'll never have one in the oval office with that gift.

    Donald Trump is not a relevant person.

    I always knew when Obama showed his long form birth certificate it would not shut the right wingers up. I agree with Sykes, they just cannot grasp the fact that we have a black president. People complain about Obama, as if Bush was so great. PUH LEEASE! blank stare @ you
