Wanda Sykes on Obama’s embrace of gay marriage and Mitt Romney’s eagerness to please
Wanda Sykes is such a funny woman.
She dropped in on Jay Leno last night and he asked her to weigh in on some hot topics, including President Obama’s recent endorsement of gay marriage.
‘I’m over the moon,’ Wanda told Jay. ‘And for a black person to say over the moon, that’s big. We don’t use that. … I’m very excited. I’m so proud of him.’
She doesn’t understand how some detractors think Obama took the stand to gain votes.
‘It’s so funny, people think he did it for political reasons. How is this going to help him politically?’ she wondered. ‘Him saying he’s for same-sex marriage, there’s someone saying, ‘ This is the last piece of my anti-Christ puzzle.”
Wanda also had a few things to say about Mitt Romney: ‘I bet if you put Mitt Romney in front of a gay organization, he would go, ‘I like gays, I’m all for gays,’ she said. ‘He says whatever should be said in front of that organization. He’s the Forrest Gump of candidates.’
