Dude, what is wrong with Joan Rivers? Why do people like her so much? Are fans referring to these comments against the President and First Lady (after officiating a gay wedding no less!) when they speak of her comedic genius?

In the video, a reporter asks Rivers whether we'll ever see a gay president as she leaves the wedding. She replies, "We already have it with Obama, so let's just calm down."

Okay. Then she adds, unprompted: "You know Michelle is a tranny," and then amends the term to "transgender," to make it less insulting? Or because "tranny" has fallen so far out of use that she has to clarify if it for everyone who didn't come of age in the 50s?
