Joan Rivers (81) is known for her racy humor but did she take things too far calling President Obama gay and the First Lady a tranny?

Take a look at her comment when asked if she thought America would ever have a gay president?

Earlier this week, after officiating a gay wedding, a reporter asked her if the US would ever have a gay president. Joan shocked the reporter when she responded, “We already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.” She took a few steps, stopped and turned to the reporter adding, “You know Michelle is a tranny.” When asked to explain what she said, Joan clarified, “A transgender. We all know.”

Now this could very-well be early signs of dementia; but come on, I get we have the privilege of free speech in America; however, I don’t recall another US president and first family being more disrespected than the Obama’s.

There are tons of things to poke fun at but calling the First Lady transgendered and the President gay because of that is taking things too far.

Joan needs a time-out, comedy/humor doesn’t have to be disrespectful.  Besides, has she looked in the mirror lately?
