Joan Rivers: Obama Is Gay And
Michelle Is A ‘Tranny’ [Video]

Daily Caller, by Kaitlan Collins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/4/2014 11:47:03 AM

The 81-year-old Joan Rivers and her mouth are back at it again. A street reporter found Rivers Thursday, and, in light of her officiating a gay wedding Monday, asked if she predicted the United States would have its woman president or a gay president first. “Well, we already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.” “You know Michelle [Obama] is a tranny,” she added. When asked for clarification she was more politically correct: ”A transgender.” Watch the whole thing here:

Comments:
Oh my. This will sure cause rage and fury with those in the media. Poor Joan, she is starting to resemble that horrific "Cat Lady" who has had too many plastic surgeries. For those who aren´t familiar with the Cat Lady below is a link. Be prepared! It´s a horror show! This is the entire article with video.

Joan Rivers is impossible to look at. She will do anything for attention. I´ve seen her in person (at a banquet) and she scans to see where the press is and always does something outrageous right in front of them. Usually they ignore her, but she´s a machine, she´s never stop trying.

Back in the days of Margaret Thatcher, Joan was doing a regular routine mocking the British royalty suggesting that the discussion was over a pack of dogs - princess, duke, king, etc. As part of a gotcha, someone in the entertainment community arranging for a Thatcher imitator to have a chance encounter with her in an airport.

I can´t wait to see how this one plays out.

..since the typical lib thinks being homosexual/ bi/ trans/sexual predator/pervert is cool and perfectly normal...and they are "proud of their brave family and friends" that are in the above categories... then WHY are they so outraged and angry when someone claims THEY are one of those types??....shouldn´t they say "Thank you for the compliment." ...just wondering....??

I loathe everything the O´s stand for, but how is this cheap shot even remotely funny? This from a Jewish woman who I once heard ´joke´ about her forebears being burned in the concentration camps...to which her sycophants on the ´Fashion Police´ just giggled and said, "Oh, Joan." There were NO repercussions! She´s a vile woman.

Why else would barry choose a wife who is more manly than he is? Why is he always surrounding himself with large male athletes? Why did he spend so much time defending the gay marriage agenda? Something is definitely awry between those elephant ears. When the media decides to dig up the truth about this pixie some day (if they ever do) we will be treated to a bunch of strange facts. He will go down as the biggest farce in the history of Washington.

Joan Rivers is pretty vile most of the time.

But, occasionally, she actually gets it right. This is one of those times -- at least about Øvomit (and his "special friend" Reggie).

But Moo-chelle isn´t a "tranny". She is just another low-class chick who has tagged along with a man to get power and wealth. Once he isn´t president any longer, and no longer has anything to offer her, I´m guessing she will be gone really quickly.

It certainly explains why Obama thinks he´s King if he´s married to a queen. Don´t know and don´t care, but it is a sad state of affairs that this is part of a national speculation. What I can say with certainty: Obama is the worst president in history.

She was a mean-spirited, vile beast yesterday and she is one today and will be one tomorrow. She may have "talent", but this is her m.o. She says mean things, gets paid for criticizing peoples´ looks and clothes while she and that talentless daughter get paid off of it.

Of course, this is deliberately "outrageous" as part of the "shtick" of Joan Rivers. For all that we love to lampoon Moochelle: Malia and Sasha would be miracles of science if Joan´s remark were true. You can tell by the facial resemblances that they were not adopted, either.

In the "old days" before P.C. we would simply establish a mental "filter" and move on.

Joan Rivers is a brilliant one-liner. Too bad though she has to make a living making mean remarks about people even if there is some truth in some of her barbs. She´s a poster child for the mean & greedy Republican (everyone does know she´s a Republican, right?). Of course the tranny thing is absurd.

Anyway, thanks to #13 for the "Google Larry Sinclair." All the talk of Obama being gay has been frustrating to me since I´ve never been able to find much evidence aside from, say, that picture of him sitting awfully chummily with his college roomie. But via googling Larry Sinclair I found the Corsi article in WMD, which I´m thinking is about as convincing as it gets possibly aside from LS´s book. (?)

And color me innocent but I still don´t see why all the comments about Mooch. To me she isn´t particularly butch or even unattractive. Her personality & politics of course are something else entirely.

Obama Pursuing Climate
Accord in Lieu of Treaty

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is working to forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions, but without ratification from Congress. In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summit meeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world’s largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the

The Lincoln Center’s Metropolitan Opera plans to produce “The Death of Klinghoffer” this fall. The opera romanticizes violence and terrorism against Jews. Leon Klinghoffer was a disabled American appliance manufacturer who was murdered and thrown overboard by Palestinian terrorists who hijacked the cruise ship Achille Lauro in 1985. They rolled him right off the ship. Now the Lincoln Center is running an opera justifying his death.

A film and television producer on the way to an Emmy´s pre-party on Friday says he was wrongly held for six hours by officers of the Beverly Hills police force who claimed he ´fit the description´ of a black bank robber. Harvard graduate Charles Belk, 51, uploaded a photograph to Facebook of himself handcuffed and sitting on a curb with two officers standing over him after he was pulled over as he left a restaurant to top up a parking meter.

The White House has indicated that President Obama will take some kind of executive action on immigration at the end of summer, but the administration has been tight-lipped about the specifics of such a move. Reports have indicated that the executive action could provide legalization for some five million undocumented immigrants already in the United States – something Lisa Navarrete, adviser to the president of La Raza, explained to Breitbart News in a Tuesday interview would be welcome but really the “floor” number of what her group is looking to accomplish. “We have been very clear with the President that

The effects of climate change will grow more severe as greenhouse gas emissions rise, according to a draft United Nations report. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned the "risk of abrupt and irreversible change increases as the magnitude of the warming increases," according to a New York Times account of the draft, which could change before its expected final release in November. Nations are looking to secure commitments at U.N.-hosted climate talks next year in Paris to restrain enough greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 to prevent a 2 degrees Celsius global temperature rise by the end of the century.

DeFoggi, who had top security clearance in his capacity as cyber security director, first joined the child pornography website PedoBook in March 2012. The Omaha World-Herald reported that he was arrested in April of last year, when law enforcement officials serving a search warrant found him downloading child pornography in his home.

He praised California and its governor, Jerry Brown, for their support for immigrants, regardless of their status. But Peña Nieto stayed clear of one topic that scores of protesters across the street from the historic Stanford Mansion were waiting for him to address — Mexico´s incarceration of Marine Sgt.

Another federal government-run website created under ObamaCare is suffering the same symptoms as the troubled federal health care exchange -- grappling with delays, data problems and other hiccups as the deadline to take it public nears. At issue is a database known as the Open Payments website. It was created under the Affordable Care Act to shed light on the financial ties between doctors and pharmaceutical companies as well as device manufacturers. The transparency initiative is supposed to include detailed information about drug payments made by doctors as well as the value of gifts and services given

The U.S. joined four European partners on Monday condemning the escalation of violence in Libya, where Islamists seized control of Tripoli’s airport at the weekend, but also criticized airstrikes against those same Islamists, although without identifying the source of the air attacks. While forces led by a renegade Libyan general fighting the Islamists, Khalifa Hifter, claimed responsibility for the airstrikes, U.S. officials pointed a finger at Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). U.S. officials told the New York Times that the Obama administration had been surprised by the strikes by Egypt and the UAE, which had not coordinated their action with

Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe.

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them.

They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people.

May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad!

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for
