Washington, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Joan Rivers has joked that US president Barack Obama is gay, and his wife Michelle is transgender.
The notoriously controversial 81-year-old comedian officiated a surprise gay wedding at a book signing in New York City earlier this week, and was asked by a reporter for her thoughts on when the US will get its first gay or female president. She replied: “We already have that with Obama, so let’s just calm down… and you know Michelle is a tranny.”
At a White House press briefing today, Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked what the President and First Lady’s reaction was to Rivers’ comments.
Earnest told reporters: “As a matter of policy, we don’t comment on statements made by mummies.”
End of controversy.
