Wanda Sykes claims all the Republican presidential candidates are 'awful'

Celebrity Wanda Sykes claimed during an interview with Variety that all the Republican presidential candidates are "awful."

"I don't see how," Sykes said when asked if she believes former President Donald Trump will be nominated again. "I mean, there are definitely pockets that he’s going to dominate, but I don't see across the country how he'll get the nomination. Right? Are we that bad? Is the country that horrible? Really?" she said, according to the outlet — Variety noted that the interview was "edited for length and clarity."

After the interviewer noted that Trump's poll numbers have been higher than other Republican contenders, the comedian replied, "Well, I mean, they're all awful."

But Sykes predicted another Biden victory over Trump.

"Biden will beat him again. Yep! I said: Old Man Biden will beat him again!" she said.

A number of other Republican candidates are challenging Trump, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will reportedly announce a White House bid on Wednesday.

Sykes, who identifies as a lesbian, is completely supportive of those who identify as transgender.

"I'm not trans, but they have my support, 100%" she said, according to Variety.

She indicated that she would not have any objection to being described as a "woke comic."

"If you want to give me the label of a 'woke comic,' that's fine. That's great. What makes me laugh is that they say that like it’s an insult: 'Oh, they're woke.' Thank you! Yeah, I read some stuff from time to time. Yeah, I know a few things. It's not an insult at all. I mean, George Carlin, he was woke. Richard Pryor, woke. Bill Hicks, woke. It's almost like they’re angry that we’re evolving. It's sad, really," she said, according to Variety.
