Joan Rivers: Obama is Gay and 'Michelle is a Tranny'


Joan Rivers is making headlines for remarks she made earlier this week in New York in response to a question from a reporter asking when she thought the U.S. might see its first gay or female president.

"We already have that with Obama," Rivers responded, before turning and offering an unsolicited remark about the First Lady.

"You know Michelle is a tranny...A transgender. We all know. It's okay."

  1. translation: "Nobody knows who I am anymore so I'm taking a page from the Ann Coulter book for How To Get The Lowest Common Denominator On Your Side."

  6. FFS... it's Joan Rivers, she's joking... the difference between Rivers and Coulter is EVERYONE knows Rivers is joking, Coulter's followers actually believe what she says.

  10. P.S. Same thing with Limbaugh, Hannity, Rove, etc. as with Coulter. They make a living ginning up hatred by knowingly spewing misinformation. Rivers purpose isn't to be divisive, she is a comedian and doesn't try to fool people into taking her seriously.

  13. Hey pot...this is kettle! If anyone looks like a tranny, it's the overly stretched and pulled Joan Rivers!

  14. Either she's joking or she's senile or both.

    Who takes the old bat seriously anyway?

  15. Of course she was joking, but it was a sick, lame joke. Just because Joan has been surgically altered doesn't mean that the First Lady has. Just watch Joan on TV, she relies heavily on weak jokes targeting lesbians and trans people.

  16. If she was joking, it was an insulting joke.

    However if she was being sarcastic, then I would give her a pass.

  17. HAHAHA FAIL!!! Time this cow was sent to pasture.

  18. "Let's just calm down." Lmao!!

  19. Pity it's too late to die with a shred of dignity. She's garbage.

  20. It's beyond me to understand why some gay folks find this foul being funny. I remember being disgusted by her homophobia as far back as 1982. Was she ever actually funny?

  21. The "joke" is predicated on the idea that being trans is a bad thing. Actually she also calls Obama gay, because everyone knows how much gay men are into trans women.

  22. Am I the only one that "gets" the joke?

    Posted by: MickyFlip | Jul 4, 2014 1:05:41 PM

  23. Officially Done with her.

    Posted by: Albert | Jul 4, 2014 1:06:13 PM

  24. You folks saying "calm down" are utterly clueless. She *is* hateful. Always was. Do some research and stop pretending to be above it all.

  25. Oh shut up everyone. People can joke about the Bushes, the Clintons...but to liberals the sanctimonious holier-than-thou Obamas are off-hands? Why? Because they are black?

    If she made a joke about Laura Bush you'd all be like "Ahahaha! So funny!"

    Not that I'm a fan of the Bushes. But the double standard is blatant with you people.

    Screw you and your hypocrisy.
