Joan Rivers is senile. Angry  There are jokes and then there are tasteless jokes.  Does Rivers seriously think she's being funny?

The comedian known for her lack of self-censoring recently officiated a same-sex wedding and was asked by a photographer if she believed the United States would ever see the first gay or female president. Her response was typical Rivers.

"We already have it with Obama, so let's just calm down," she said. "You know Michelle (Obama) is a trans."

When asked to further explain Rivers said, "A transgender. We all know it."

Joan Rivers storms out of CNN interview

A representative for Rivers released the following statement to CNN from the comic about her remarks to the photographer:

"I think it's a compliment. She's so attractive, tall, with a beautiful body, great face, does great makeup. Take a look and go back to La Cage Au Follies (sic). The most gorgeous women are transgender. Stop it already ... and if you want to talk about 'politically correct,' I think this is a 'politically incorrect' attack on me because I'm old, Jewish, a woman and a 'hetty' -- a heteosexual ... 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. Read the book ... if you think that's silly, wait to (sic) you see what I say about FDR and Eleanor!"

Photos: Celebs said what?! Photos: Celebs said what?!

Rivers is no stranger to controversy. In March 2013" rel="nofollow - she refused to apologize for a joke she made about the dress "Project Runway" host Heidi Klum wore to the Academy Awards.

"The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens," Rivers said while appearing on the E! channel's "Fashion Police" show.

The Anti-Defamation League slammed Rivers, calling the remark "vulgar and hideous," but she said it was her way of getting people to talk.

"It's a joke, No. 1. No. 2 it is about the Holocaust," she told HLN's "Showbiz Tonight. "This is the way I remind people about the Holocaust. I do it through humor."

Of course, this latest dust-up coincides with Rivers' book, "Diary of a Mad Diva," which was released on July 1. Rivers' representative told CNN, "These are all funny jokes. The book is hysterical. The prologue says if anyone takes anything in the book seriously (he or she) is an idiot. And (Rivers) says if anyone has a problem with that, they can feel free to call her lawyer Clarence Darrow."

What she actually said was that FLOTUS is a tranny. Tranny is a derogatory insult. Akin to calling someone a nig.ger or the like.

It's not cute or funny to disrespect the president's wife in such a manner and she knows it. She would have lost every single job she had and be on the watch list if she said anything even remotely similar about a white FLOTUS.

After she joked about her own husbands death, everything else just gets an eye roll.

She literally has ZERO filter

She has no shame but we can at least get at the advertisers that support the show in E!. If it's still running.

She made fun of the situation of the women in Cleveland that were kidnapped, tortured and raped for 8-10 years and refused to apologize so nothing this walking corpse does surprises me. I am surprised that she continues to get jobs.

I want to say something curt and abusive but then I think about the fact that jr has to live with herself looking like that so that's good enough for me

Im gonna play devil's advocate and say that everyone is fair game for her. She really has no filter. Just as tacky as ever. I'm not surprised or even mad. I don't take her seriously.

JR is just an ass.  she cant take criticism when its thrown back at her and god forbid someone says something about jews.  comediennes always have the worst sense of humor about themselves.

Tatee, apparently Joan can dish it out, but can't take it.  I saw that interview clip when I was reading about her comments about Michelle.  I used to like Rivers, too...years ago.  She isn't leaving a good legacy if she keeps up with desperate jokes to attempt to stay relevant.

This woman clearly has body dysmorphic disorder. Because ain't no way she looks at herself in the mirror objectively and then turns around and makes statements like this about other people.
