VIDEO: Wanda Sykes Booed for Trump Joke, She Curses Out Crowd

Wanda Sykes was performing a comedy set at a charity event in Boston over the weekend when her joke about Donald Trump did not go over well with the audience.

“I am certain this is not the first time we’ve elected a racist, sexist, homophobic president. He ain’t the first one. He’s just the first confirmed one,” she said.

After drawing boos from the audience, the comedian cursed them out and questioned how they don’t see the evidence of his behavior.

“F–k you, motherf–kers. F–k all y’all. F–k all y’all,” Wanda said. “How can you say he’s not racist? ‘Grab them by the p—y’? How can you say he’s not sexist? How can you say he’s not racist? How can you say he’s not homophobic?”

Fast forward to the 6:45 mark in the below video to watch the moment.

Adam Lambert & Wanda Sykes: Out 100 Cover Stars

Adam Lambert and Wanda Sykes are among Out’s 100 – a group of 100 gay men, lesbians, transgender people and allies – in the magazine’s upcoming December 2009 issue.

The 27-year-old Idol alum was named the Breakout Star, while Wanda took home Entertainer of the Year. Here’s what Adam had to share with Out

On sexuality: “To some people, me being sexual is really offensive because I’m gay. They’re like, ‘He’s being really gay.’ And I’m like, actually, ‘No, I’m just being sexual.’ Male sexuality is frightening to America [but] female sexuality is all over the place.”

On fame: “Fame doesn’t freak me out, and I can handle it. But sometimes out in public there are people that just are so rude.

“Like, people are really cool about it and they’ll come up to you and they’re just like, “Oh hey man, I really liked you.” It’s brief, it’s sweet, it’s genuine. But some people freak out. And I’m like, why are you freaking out? I don’t get that mentality. I’ve never felt like that about a celebrity before — except maybe Madonna.

“When I met Madonna my heart was racing. That’s my one experience being star-struck. And I told her, ‘I’m freaking out.’ And she said, ‘Why?’ And I said, ‘Because you’re f—ing Madonna.’”

The Out 100 issue will hit newsstands next Tuesday (November 24). For the complete list of the 100 people recognized, visit

Wanda Sykes' Twins -- FIRST PIC!

The New Adventures of Old Christine star Wanda Sykes shared the first picture of her adorable 1-month-old twins, Olivia Lou and Lucas Claude, on Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

The 45-year-old funnywoman’s wife, Alex, gave birth to the twins on April 27.

Wanda joked during the show, “Babies are very inconsiderate! Everyone said twins should be here at 35 weeks but nothing! Lots of waiting and they finally induced at week 39. I was [in the delivery room] when they did the C-Section. When the doctors tell you “Don’t look this way,” don’t look that way. It was not pretty.”

When asked if the twins calmed down after they got home, Wanda hilariously said, “No! All hell broke loose! It’s like they were tag teaming us, you put one down and then the other one starts crying. There is nothing twin-like about these babies, they are just two babies. I mean, I don’t even think they know each other.”
