Wanda Sykes Blasts Donald Trump, Calls Birthers Racist

She's at it again!

Wanda Sykes pulled out all the punches at her show in Vancouver Thursday night when she ripped into Donald Trump for trying to get attention over the President Obama birth certificate controversy and called birthers "racist."

She went on to say:

"He’s not happy unless he’s relevant in some way. 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."

As for the birther issue, she went on blast, saying:

"I feel sorry for ’em, they’re just sad. 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."

Yikes! Those are some harsh words, there Wanda!

But, we do love it when you speak your mind!

    Irrelevant comedienne. When cadence is no longer a novelty act, who will hire you? Larry Sanders?



  2. 2

    Who the hell cares what this liberal hollywood bith has got to say about Trump…. she's a racist herself!



  3. 3

    How disappointing to hear that she said this. Wow, just damn. Things are NEVER going to change as long as people keep dreaming up racism and hate towards blacks (although the President is not all black anyway duh). I am beginning to see exactly who is really racist and it's pretty surprising. It's the very people that claim to hate it and call it out when it's not even there.



  4. 4

    HEY THE TRUTH HURTS! SHE IS ABSOLU RIGHT, TRUMP HAS TO BE RELEVANT IN ORDER TO HANDLE HIS ENORMOUS EGO! I WOULDN'T VOTE FOR HIM IF HE WAS RUNNING AGAINST BUBBLES THE CHIMP!! YOU GO WANDA, THAT'S MY GIRL!!!



  5. 5

    What? This is the most ridiculous statement I've ever heard. A lot of black people always pull the racist card. Get over it. We know slavery was difficult, but it's not about being black anymore. This was me being racist. It's about doing your damn job! Obama is trying, but not everyone will agree. Politics, not race.



  6. 6

    Can we drop the race card already? It's a pathetic back-up when people don't know what else to blame someone for. It's 2011 and Americans elected Obama as president. Isn't that enough for you race-sensitive types? And by the way, Obama is half white. Maybe Trump is saying these things because Obama is white? See, it works both ways, fools.



  7. 7

    Someone should tell her Hilary Clinton was the first person to even publicly surface the thought of him not being born here. God forbid someone questions the thought of someone's birthplace. People are so easy to deem it as racism when they forget to mention that not just Obama has been questioned about his birthplace. Eisenhower, McCain, etc.

    Re: msloriga – AMEN!



  9. 9

    hardly harsh and most definitely true



  10. 10

    How is this racism? Since he questioned why the President didn't show his birth cert. he is all of the sudden racist? Well when people make fun of George Bush for saying something stupid, does that mean they are racist? Just because someone is black and he is questioned does not mean racism is involved. Get over it.

    Re: Likeduhh – oh stfu donald is racist, he was in belief that Gasp….a black man got into a top university, come on Trump is a bigot. I guess him being named Barrack Obamaa was a sign that he isnt american huh? I have a friend name Jose Santos and guess what, he was born in New York, not mexico. Anyone who saids Trump is egotistical and racist is in D3NIAL



  12. 12

    I hate Wanda Sykes. Unfunny and talentless. Enough with the racist BS. She probably hates George Bush, so she, therefore, is racist. Dumb ass idiot.



  13. 13

    The birthers aren't racist. They're just stupid.



  14. 14

    I feel sorry for Trump. Kind of. He's an asshole. I also feel really sorry for the blacks who are so thoroughly brainwashed by the democratic party that they not only have blinders on but a blindfold when it comes to political choices. It's mind boggling they can't see how clearly the liberal democratic ideology continues to oppress them. You would think if anyone wanted to embrace republican values, they would. It's a mystery.



  15. 15

    She's right. Good for you Wanda!

    Fact is, many birthers, republicans and tea baggers are racist. That's as obvious as perz being gay.



  16. 16

    @msloriga— No one is dreaming up racism! Try being Black in America. No the President is not all Black (actually he's not Black at all), but that is what he looks like and identifies with growing up as in America. Ask him if racism exist and I am sure he will say yes.



  17. 17

    Most of this anti Obama shit is racist, outright racist. Damn right it is!
    AND I voted for Mcain if your thinkin Obama is my man.



  18. 18

    Re: Likeduhh – Get over it? What a tool. I'm not black and i can see how racist this is. Why hasn't a president's birth certificate been an issue in the past? Why are people even questioning Obama's school records? I mean if anyone's school records should have been looked at it's George W. Bush…..that dumb fuck! It's racist, plain and simple. Anyone that can't see that is either blind, ignorant or racist themselves.



  19. 19

    @likeduhh— You can't do your job when people are always questioning your qualifications and citizenship!

    @lenmom— Really, the race card?! Wouldn't be possible to be played if it didn't exist. I want to know how many people have actually experienced racism before they start talking about the race card. Trump has made some racist comments like his basketball reference. How could someone not say that is racist?



  20. 20

    AND you never heard one word about where Mccain was born. Although born on a Naval base, hence a US citizen, he was NOT BORN in the US. He was born in Panama.



  21. 21

    OMFG, seriously? You are calling HER out for saying something harsh??? What about all of the shit Donald Trump has been spewing for years. He needs to be taken down a notch, and he needs to shut up. He's an asshole, and Perez, frankly I'm surprised you'd even hint at taking his side and call Wanda out.



  22. 22

    Re: Raptorsrule – Let's see…..are 'truthers' racist too? Mommy said don't ask questions about the 'truthers'.



  23. 23

    It's not his race that birthers object to, it's his arrogance that he doesn't need to follow the same rules as everyone else. We have to show our birth cerificates to enroll for healthcare at my job and to sign up for Little League. But Obama thinks it isn't important for POTUS?? He's ridiculous and so is everybody saying the same thing as Sykes.

    Re: Genghis Khan – Wtf??? What values? Republicans are bigoted,racist,sexist and homophobic. No minority race/sexual orientation wise cares for republicans. Get real, republicans and blacks dnt mix, just like milk and vinegar

    25

    It's true in a lot of cases. The people I know that "hate" Obama were the people I knew growing up that called black people "moolies"



  26. 26

    She's full of crap - period. Shut yer flappin' gap Wanda



  27. 27

    almost every PRESIDENT AND PRESIDENTIAL CANIDIDATE has had some sort of conspiracy and/or 'scandel' accused/thrown at him. ONLY WITH OBAMA IS IT RACIST. And this is because he is bi-racial. All these liberals shouting RACIST anytime there is a QUESTION associated with this man are just RAISING THE ANGER LEVEL IN THIS COUNTRY. Yes, there is still Racism is this country and THERE WILL ALWAYS BE! but it is on BOTH SIDES! But, IT IS NOT RACISM TO QUESTION SOMEONE, not racist to question, to ask, if a white person would, could be asked the SAME THING! (and McCain was!). and the BC CRAP, Obama, O B A M A was the one holding things back. and I believe liking it, that some people looked like idiots, until some LIBERALS LOOKED LIKE IDIOTS, LIKE SEINFELD. Then, it was no longer FUNNY!



  28. 28

    Wanda Sykes had become a BIG MOUTH SINCE COMING OUT AND SINCE COMING OUT, YOU MARIO STAND UP FOR HER! PATHETIC. and I have NOTHING AGAINST HER BEING A LESBIAN, knew it for YEARS, was 'NOT THE SECRET' she thought it was…… BUT, if all these liberals keep up with this 'racist, racism' crap OVER EVERYTHING….. he will NOT BE BACK IN 2012



  29. 29

    People won't admit it's racism, because they are also too stupid to realize they are being racist. It's one thing to complain about the decisions he has made, THAT is politics. When we start referring to him as Barack "hussein" Omaba, it's to try to make some ridiculous connection to Saddam Hussein, & when we start griping about his birth certificate & bullying him into showing us the LONG form version… THAT is racism. You can deny it to yourself ALL you want people… it is what it is. You don't have to be black to see it either.



  30. 30

    Now that we've seen Obama's birth certificate, I want to see Melania Trump's immigration papers! How do we know she's not an illegal? She could be. It's fishy that we've never seen ANY paperwork on this! I'm sure the Trumps won't just expect us to take their word for it. Right?



  31. 31

    I dont know who this person is, but she had me till she pulled the race card. I heard that, and I skipped the rest of the blurb. Id rather hear someone address an issue than pull that tiresome and overused ploy.



  32. 32

    agree with her all the way. pick on the first black president why don't ya?
    no one was picking on president bush back then. oh wait. i forgot he's white. people, seriously. need to stop being so fucking racist. fucking mccain, sarah palin, donald trump seriously need to get a fucking life and stop hating. fucking disgusting white trash motherfuckers. if i had to choose between being black or white. i'd rather be black. it's less painful. i would rather kill myself then be a white person. that would be really disgusting to be a white person. their like the most ugliest disgusting people on this planet. all white people look hella ugly and fake. yuck! i feel sorry for all the white people out there. i'll pray for you white folks. lol and president obama. keep up the good work.

    Re: Jessica Darling – Preach it :)



  34. 34

    Since when is Obama black? I am so sick and tired of people calling him black when he comes from mixed heritage. He is half white, half black.



  35. 35

    So many people are throwing around the word racist that it is not going to mean anything anymore. In the course of the past two months a high percentage of people have been accused of being racist. Wow-isn't it amazing that President Obama was able to get elected in such a racist country??(sarcasm)



  36. 36

    fuck you and your racist shit sykes the only racists are black uneducated assholes



  37. 37

    Birthers aren't just racist they are people who have problems with immigrants. They are the people who want to build that stupid fence . I think that the fact that Obama is multiracial (black) AND had a foreign born Father is what gets their goat. These are the people who treat immigrants and their children like second class citizens,( like roaches) and let them know it. I think Trump saw an opportunity to put himself in the media because that is what he is a big giant media hoar. However I don't think he really thought it through. He needs to eat crow and shut up. Maybe he should think about the causes he gets involved with a little harder before he gets on the band wagon. Oh an he needs to get that long haired Guinea pig looking hair piece off his head.



  38. 38

    People are concerned because we have a Marxist President that's destroying the US economy and leaving a trail of unpaid bills.



  39. 39

    I love how anytime someone questions Obama they automatically get labeled a "racist". If you didn't vote for Obama, you were labeled a "racist". Ugh. I'm so disgusted with people playing the "race card". Grow up people.



  40. 40

    I really do not like Trump but I also do not think he is racist
    he is a childish elitist and bullies/puts down anyone who doesn't like him

    Amazing how people nowadays have an outright allergic adversity to a few concrete facts. You bring what you need to get a passport and don't complain.
    This should be viewed in precisely the same way, then forgettaboudit. Transparency brings no conspiracy theories. Hide stuff, and everybody doubts.

    Re: Matrix – Your 'Marxism' accusation is off base. The definition of Marxism in part is that the theory seeks the elimination of the notion of private property in order to gain control of the economic "means of production" by taking it from the bourgeois (the wealthy or propertied class) for the benefit of the proletariat (working class.) That's not what's happening. The rich have become stupendously richer; the top U.S. 400 individuals now have more wealth than the bottom 150 million according to Michael Moore. Instead, no increased taxes on the wealthy or corporations, and in some cases, none at all, but the middle class are still paying. What say you now?



  43. 43

    She is right…on both accounts.



  44. 44

    Re: tina2055 – him being half white may only make the REAL racists even angrier. nothing is worse to them than a white woman "fornicating" with a black man! one drop rule, haven't you heard of that?

    gosh, people sound doubly stupid when they bring up this "well it can't be racist since he's not FULLY black"…do you not know the country you live in? the birthers may not ALL be racist, but a vast majority of them (like the ones coming up with conspiracy theories about the birth certificate) are. if they weren't they would have moved on when he released the long-form, but they haven't. now they wanna see his college transcript? GTFOH!



  45. 45

    She's an irrelevant, has-been loser!



  46. 46

    Re: white_is_ugly – Excuse me mr. WHITE IS UGLY you are the type of person who is keeping racism alive!! Do you not realize how racist you are being by saying that type of stuff towards white people? Do you not remember how much criticism President Bush got while he was president?? Has it ever crossed your mind that people have different opinions in politics?? Sure there are racists out there but it doesn't make you a racist if you disagree with a person who is a different race as you are. You make yourself sound so arrogant.



  47. 47

    Have you ever heard of reverse discrimination . Thats what is happening now. Everyone who yells racist is being a racists. You know that saying "takes one to know one". Congrats you've just figured it out.

    Re: Winnie Ramos – You're an idiot.



  49. 49

    Well, let's see - hmmmmm, no white president has ever been hounded to produce a birth certificate. If anything, Bush should have been hounded to produce his high school diploma and transcripts.

    one name mccain was brought up not being an american…so shut ut u dumb llibertards…



  56. 56

    Not harsh…just true. Thinking that racism doesn't exist in this country is being in denial or not caring about the issue. To think that racism doesn't play a part in some people's "issues" with the president is also denial. It's easy to be tired of hearing about racism and wanting people to stop "playing the race card" if you're white. How long ago was it that a black man was dragged to death behind a truck down south by white men (two of whom identified with the white supremacist movement)? Not long enough. Racism is alive and well and we all need to learn to get along and love more. The thing to "get over" is hate and anger (whether you're black, white or any other color).



  57. 57

    .
    they've lowered the bar in the definition of RACIST to now include anyone who voices differing thoughts/attitudes/political positions etc. from a person of color!! or maybe a person wearing a turban…or maybe… you get the drift..
    .

    are they so stupid that they don't see that! won't be surprised if someone eventually is taken to court and charged with slander/harrassment/defamation etc. for calling someone high profile like Trump a racist–
    .
    how are they going to prove that in a court room??
    Trump's statement about the birth certificate(certificate of live birth) seemed stupid to some/illogical to some/poorly informed/assinine to some
    .
    can think of a lot of things to call it but it doesn't fall into the category of racist!!
    .
    SAD WHEN WE BRAG ABOUT HAVING FREEDOM OF SPEECH
    .
    BUT IT DOESN'T APPLY TO SOMEONE WHO HAS AN DIFFERING THOUGHTS, OPINIONS AND CONCLUSONS FROM YOURS



  58. 58

    Re: white_is_ugly
    WHAT PLANET HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING ON??
    saying that Bush wasn't criticized when for 8 years the Democrats (politicians and public) called called him everything they could think of and mocked and disrespected him while he was in office-not his politcs but him as a person
    .
    we tried to make our own leader look stupid and in the eyes of of the world we accomplished that! that's really pathetic- former Pres Carter even bashed him abroad and at home
    .
    at least both Bush Sr and Jr know enough to respect the office of the president to keep a low political profile and not comment on or bash the current president



  59. 59

    So what do you call all the Democrats/Liberals who questioned John McCain's citizenship?????? Sykes is an ignorant woman who clearly demonstrates a lack of education.



  60. 60

    She's absolutely correct.

    These "birther" folks should think about taking off their tinfoil hats, leaving their trailer parks, and going to get an actual education. What a sad country we live in where useless hicks are allowed to voice their completely irrelevant "opinions".



  61. 61

    Thank you tea baggers and birther racists commenting here! You have gone to show Wanda's point perfectly. The far right is racist, DUH! It's a big part of what you're about. Embrace it. At least don't try and pretend otherwise or pander any of that "NO! SHE'S a racist" hogwash.

    i think there is a certain amount of racism when it come to the persident. it unfrotunate that the race card has been pulled out so many times that when there is reason to believe its a the foundation for the the hatered towards him its actually dismissed.

    no one is making a deal of the fact that mccaine wasn't born in america, yet it was ok for him to run for persident. i wonder why…..

    and to those who say he resfuse to show his birth certificate. you are wrong. he showed it to the people who needed to see it. and they felt it was real and allowed him to run for persident. the state of hawaii has also come foward and made it clear that he was born in hawaii as well.

    but now that he has shown maybe we can focus on more important matters in this country… oh wait he needs to show he graduate from college, there is doubt about that too…..

    To call Trump an egotist and attention-seeking because that's what you've seen in his behavior is an opinion. But to call a bunch of people you've never met and obviously don't know 'racist' because you don't like one opinion they share is the kind of thing racist people do.

    Wanda, would have made the same 'joke' if the President was white? Didn't think so…racist!



  65. 65

    Trump being a Jew should know better than to align himself with tea party bigots. god knows the Jews are discriminated and hated worldwide more than any other race.

    Obama is just as "African American" as every black person I know who's skin color is brown but they still happen to have a percentage of white in their family. In American society anyone with 1% of African decent is considered "African American",so history has shown us.This concept applied to Jews as well.It usually applied to anyone who "people" felt was a lower class in society.Sad but true.This is America and you should be able to claim to be any race to identify most with.Racism will go away when people get that through their heads.



  70. 70

And for people who are rasist…so fucking what….. didnt your mommy and daddy teach you to not give a fuck what people think about you. Guess what if it was a race thing he NEVER EVER would have been elected President. Wanda I had no opinion of you before reading this. Now I just think you are an clueless sheep. BAH BAH.



  73. 73

    Another thing thought I'd throw out there. How the FUCK do you or anyone know what goes on in every persons head. You don't. Ive noticed most people play on the racist thing when they themselves feel inadequate or they fear surrounding circumstances. Pathetic!!!! you cant voice for years about all the "PROGRESS" we have made toward tolerance. And then because you disagree with someone, then claim how "Things have always been this way". Fuck off! You think thats why we dont want him in the white house!!!!!! LOL. Lets agree to disagree, it would be a nicer ride.



  74. 74

    I am bi-racial and gay. I am sick and tired of these bigots getting away with their racism. Wanda Sykes, Bill Mahr, Chris Matthews, etc since 2008 Primaries, have gotten away with heightning racism. Bill Mahr and Chris Matthews gets away with sexism and the liberals allow it. Obama's staffers and volunteers have gotten away with sexism against Hillary and racism.



  75. 75

    Since Obama's 2008 primary nomination, this country has seen noncaucasian and liberal racists in the open media. They also are still getting away with it. Now Wanda Sykes is on the racist list since she is only fair to people who are not liberal. If you disagree and criticise Obama, these bigots cry wolf and are very close to defamation of someones character. I am not a Trump fan and I do stand against ALL RACISM and Wanda and many other liberals are showing their racists views.



  76. 76

    People like: Wanda Sykes, Bill Mahr, Chris Matthews, Lawrence O'Donnell, President Obama, Rev. Al Sharpton, etc are hurting the people who REALLY are being disciminated. So many nonwhite and liberals are crying wolf, when discrimination happens, not many people will listen to them. Also people might be reluctant to nominate a liberal noncaucasian because they do not want to go through this 21st Century style of racism from these co-called celebs.
