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."

Watch the whole segment above, and meanwhile here's how to find a protest near you and here's a collection of reproductive justice accounts to follow.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
