The decade's most triggering comedy
Comedian Wanda Sykes, famed for, among other things, chanting like a defiant four-year-old, “Gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay” at the Oscars, weighed in with her typically erudite take on the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, attacking conservatives in the middle of the country.
The Supreme Court issued its ruling on Friday; Sykes made her comments on Late Night with Stephen Colbert Monday night.
“The problem is that middle stuff. It is those states in the middle, that red stuff,” Sykes pronounced.
Sykes was prompted by Clobert, who asked solicitously, “How ya’ doin? How ya’ doin?”
“I’m a black gay woman and I have a daughter so I’m not doing so well right now. I’m a little salty,” Sykes declared.
“You’re a little salty?” Colbert repeated.
“I’m a little salty right now,” Sykes reiterated.
“Sprinkle a little salt, let’s put some flavor on here,” Colbert pressed.
“It just sucks, man. It really does,” Sykes said articulately. “The country, it’s no longer a democracy, right? It’s no longer majority rule.”
Expert constitutionalist Colbert agreed: “No. Certainly not in the Senate; certainly not in the Supreme Court.”
“It’s no longer majority rule,” Sykes repeated. “I mean, it’s like, these judges, they basically lied during their confirmation hearings, right?”
“Especially Kavanaugh,” Colbert suggested.
“So how can you be a Supreme Court Justice and you’re just lyin’? They had their fingers crossed or somethin’ or what? It’s just a bunch of horse****. It really is,” Sykes ranted.
Then she mounted her attack on conservatives in middle America: “To me it’s like, the problem is that middle stuff. It is those states in the middle, that red stuff. Why do they get to tell us what to do, when the majority of us live out, New York, California, and we are paying for all this crap, really? We’re footing the bill.”
Colbert, again ignoring the constitutional function of the Supreme Court: “That’s the union. It’s supposed to be a representative democracy but it turns out to be minority rule right now.”
“Right, right,” Skykes agreed, then added, “But if we footing the bill, and like, California, if it were a country, it’d be like the fifth largest, fourth, fifth largest economy. So if I’m footing the bill, know your position. Know what I’m saying? Look, if I say let’s go out to dinner you don’t get to pick the restaurant. Just shut up and eat.”

She really is just a stupid person. This decision is the opposite of red states telling blue states what to do. It’s red states being unable to tell blue states what to do and vice versa. https://t.co/67tLaQYunG

These people are the perfect combination of elitist and ignorant. The decision puts the power back to the states, so she can live with her genderless, woke, narcissistic friends in CA and NY. Though they’ll get hungry real quick when they realize where food comes from… https://t.co/SHvaEBoqxO

At the Oscars earlier this year, Sykes decided she would alienate plenty of people in Florida by attacking them over the state’s Parental Rights in Education legislation, sniping, “Well, we’re going to have a great night tonight. And for you people in Florida, we’re going to have a gay night.”
Then she joined two other supposed comediennes Regina Hall and Amy Schumer to chant like defiant four-year-olds, “Gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay, gay.”
