"Daily Show" Mocks Talking Heads For Defending Torture While Decrying Wanda Sykes (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Two days after Wanda Sykes appeared at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and joked that Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker on 9/11 but missed the plane because he was so strung out on Oxycontin, all hell has broken loose with commentators and politicians alike chiming in on why they hated what Wanda said. Frankly, if you took all the offensive things Rush Limbaugh has said over the years and compared them to all the offensive things Wanda Sykes has said, I'm guessing the former would have a much longer list.

Stewart looked at the reactions to Sykes' performance last night and determined that "bad jokes and gay marriage are destroying this country, but torture can save it." John Oliver followed up with a similarly-themed segment, using the language of torture defenders to defend Sykes.
