Wanda Sykes on Republicans post-election: “They need a hug and a Xanax right now”

Wanda Sykes was under the weather but she didn’t let that stop her from keeping her appointment as a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this week.

Wanda, of curse, could not pass on the opportunity to weigh in on the presidential elections.

She poked poke fun at Mitt Romney who post-election told his financial donors that President Barack Obama won the 2012 election because of ‘gifts’ he gave to black, Hispanic and young voters.

‘I feel slighted,’ Wanda told Jay. ‘Ever since the election I’ve been looking out my window waiting for the UPS man to show up. Nothing. Am I not black enough? I feel cheated.’

She also delighted in post-mortems among some in the Republican party who say they need to work harder to embrace Latino voters moving forward – a group that largely voted Democratic because of the party’s hard line against illegal immigration.

‘Republicans, they need a hug and a Xanax right now,’ Wanda said. ‘They don’t know what’s going on. You turn on the news and they’re still trying to figure it out. … They’re trying to figure out how (they) can get the Hispanic vote. They’re skipping right over black people – that’s a lost cause. They don’t even try.’
