Joan Rivers Busts Out the Tired 'Adele Is Fat' Shtick

Here's Joan Rivers calling a Adele a cow, or whatever. The thing is, Joan Rivers is a rare bird, and she's worked her way up the ranks like a motherfucking Terminator. She didn't get where she is by giving out Girl Scout cookies and telling everyone they're pretty. The other thing is, she mocks her own appearance, so she thinks it's okay to think and talk about herself and others in really hateful ways. It's her act, I get it, and it can be super funny. But here's one of many times it's overwrought, ugly, and worked to death. It's embarrassing to see/hear the audience and Letterman's reactions — the whole thing is just awkward as hell.
