"Tonight Show" host Jay Leno defended comedian Wanda Sykes who recently caused a stir with her 9/11 joke about Rush Limbaugh at the White House correspondents dinner. Sykes will be guesting on the "Tonight Show" during Jay's last week as host.
Jay said, "She's very funny. I thought she was fine. She didn't use any four letter words. I love Wanda. I think she's really clever and one of the funniest and really original faces out there. It's the same type of material you would do on our show."
In her comedy routine, Wanda Sykes suggested that Rush Limbaugh might have been the 20th 9/11 hijacker but was so stoned on Oxycontin he missed his flight and she also hoped that Rush Limbaugh's kidneys might fail (In reference to Limbaugh's hoping President Obama fails).
