SINKING SHIP

Joan Rivers Tests New “Joke” Material: “Michelle Obama Is A Tranny!”

joan-riversAging comedian Joan Rivers failed at trying to remain relevant again this week, taking a low blow at President Obama and the First Lady with a dated “joke” that unsurprisingly fell flat on a New York City sidewalk.

Just a day after officiating a marriage between two men at her book signing in Union Square’s Barnes & Noble, Rivers was caught by a photographer on the street who asked: “Do you think the United States will see the first gay president or the first woman president?”

The 81-year-old, who once said referring to Michelle Obama as “Blackie O” Is not racist, replied: “We already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down. You know Michelle is a tranny!” When asked for clarification, she said “[Michelle is] a transgender. We all know.”

Rivers has managed to stay in the news during the last year thanks to her penchant for using deeply offensive slurs, but also because she’s a terrible employer. More than one year after the dedicated Fashion Police writing staff demanded a raise from their pennies-only paycheck, she continues to ignore their request for a meeting.
