That's a lot of shade to throw for someone who's had more stitches than the Bride of Frankenstein...one of her schoolmates, I suspect.

"I think this is a 'politically incorrect' attack on me because I'm old, Jewish, a woman and a 'hetty'-- a heteosexual [sic]... and I plan to sue the reporter who, when he turned off his camera, tried to touch me inappropriately on the a**- luckily he hit my ankle."

Maybe Joan needed trans fat lip in her diet....

(See what I did there?)

Joan's hilarious, but I'm not sure Mrs. Obama would be the first target on my list. She could throw a mean punch with those Anderson Cooper-worthy biceps of hers.

Trans is fine. Calling someone trans is no insult. Joan was just being complimentary and funny. Many trans women are drop dead gorgeous.

She looks like Jocelyn Wildemstein.
Remember her ?
Joan Rivers was never funny. Just offensive. Ignore her.
You are too serious.

Being transgendered is fine. But Rivers isn't in the business of paying compliments, and implying Obama is misrepresenting herself is distasteful. It would also call into question the parentage of her daughters.

In anything dealing with Joan Rivers it's best to keep one's tongue jammed firmly in one's cheek.

It was meant as a joke. Nobody takes Joan Rivers seriously.

Then please explain the joke to me and how it was funny because it sounded to me that she was denigrating trans people.
Since being trans is not an insult, how could it be an insult. I would consider it a compliment.

I have never found rivers to be even mildly amusing. She's disgusting and needs to keep her opinions to herself.

She's completely pro lgbt and has been for years. closet case.

I'd say add her to you imaginary boycott list and stick to Dennis Miller for comedy, but he's pro marriage equality, too.

Anyone with a penis is gay in your world.

Meaning, as we know, you're a closet case....
