Joan Rivers Calls Michelle Obama A “Tranny”
At this point in Joan River’s career, we’re not really surprised by much that comes out of her mouth considering she’s been telling jokes for 50 years and she’s almost ancient. However, we didn’t find ourselves laughing when we heard what the “Fashion Police” host said recently about First Lady Michelle Obama.
Rivers is knee-deep in controversy (see what I did there) for calling Michelle Obama a “tranny.” How did this controversial statement slip off her lips? She was approached by paparazzi on the street who asked, “Do you think the United States will see the first gay president or first woman president?,” to which, she responded, “We already have a gay president with Obama, so, let’s just calm down — you know Michelle is a tranny.”
Not only is the word “tranny” considered offensive amongst many in the transgendered community, but Rivers used it against the FLOTUS AND called President Obama gay. Now we can take a joke, but some things should not be said out of respect!
