Joan Rivers specifically banned ‘tranny’ Michelle Obama and 2 others from her funeral service

Raspy-voiced, politically incorrect Joan Rivers had many wishes for her final public performance:.

The first lady was not one of them.

collagejoanriversmichelleobama0909In her last interview, in Los Angeles only weeks before her death, Rivers told the Sunday Times Magazine (subscription only) that there were three people she did not want attending the funeral she knew would be a star-studded occasion.

The first one on the list — which may have been tongue-in-cheek —  was Michelle Obama. The reason?

Obama is a “tranny.” (As in, transsexual.)

The other two, according to Blackamericaweb.com, were the singer Adele (too “fat” and comedian Chelsea Handler, whom Rivers apparently considered not just a “drunk” but a “whore.”

Can we talk?

Let’s face it, not one of those reasons kept anybody else from Rivers’ funeral.

A woman who has the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus serenading her last rites with Broadway show tunes probably doesn’t have a problem with transsexuals (unless their blouses don’t match their pumps.)

And being fat could hardly keep out the crowd in an audience that included Roseanne Barr.

As for “drunks” and “whores,” we’re talking Hollywood, for God’s sake.

So again, Rivers might have been joking. Or she might have had her own reasons for not wanting an Obama around.

Either, as always, she still got the last laugh.
