Can We Talk? Joan Rivers Calls President ‘Gay,’ First Lady ‘a Tranny’

usa-obama

For more than 50 years, Joan Rivers has been considered the female Don Rickles — a compliment of the highest order. She has insulted everyone with wit, humor, and dazzling banter. However, that was the younger Joan Rivers. Today, she’s not so much funny, as just a fake plastic individual in Hollywood that doesn’t know when to give it up.

And now, the octogenarian comedienne may have just told her last joke and discussed her last arrest with the “Fashion Police.” Why? You don’t get to call the President of the United States “gay.” Moreover, his wife a “tranny.” Yeah, not even plastic surgery will save you from this one, Joan.

Maybe it’s the collagen in her lips, the saline in her face, or the greased lard across her body? Whatever the cause, Joan Rivers has gone bat-ess crazy. There she is, at a bookstore shilling for her publisher. Rivers thought she would trick things up officiated an impromptu gay wedding between two of her fans.

Following this stunt signing, Rivers was asked by a reporter on the street who asked her whether the U.S. will ever see a gay president, to which the 81-year-old Rivers responded, “We already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.”

But wait, there’s more: “You know Michelle is a tranny.” When the reporter asked her to confirm what she had said, Rivers said, “A transgender. We all know.” Yes, Joan and now, we all know about you too.
