Wanda Sykes has been taking the U.S. government to task for an age, challenging what the hell we consider to be “normal” behaviour from politicians and lawmakers. And appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the comedy legend condemned the overturning of Roe v. Wade on Friday, with the Supreme Court voting to eliminate the constitutional right to an abortion.
“The country, it’s no longer a democracy, right? It’s no longer majority rule,” said Sykes on Tuesday’s show, discussing with Colbert America’s current status as a representative democracy. “These judges, they basically lied during the confirmation hearings, right?”
“Especially Kavanaugh,” replied Colbert.
“So how can you be a Supreme Court justice and you’re just lying? What, they had their fingers crossed or something? It’s just a bunch of horsehit, it really is.”
