Obama sent Joan Rivers condolence note, after she called his wife a ‘tranny’

Nick Duffy September 19, 2014

Joan Rivers’ daughter says she received a handwritten note of condolence from President Barack Obama – just weeks after the comedian labelled his wife a “tranny”.

A month before her death, Joan Rivers claimed that President Barack Obama is gay, and his wife Michelle Obama “a tranny”.

When asked whether the US would see a gay president, she said: “We already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.

“You know Michelle is a tranny. A transgender, we all know.”

Appearing on a special episode of E!’s Fashion Police in her mother’s memory, Melissa Rivers revealed that the President sent her a personal condolence note despite the joke.

The note said in part: “Not only did she make us laugh, she made us think.”

Following the joke, some conspiracy theorists begun to theorise that the First Lady is actually transgender.

Alex Jones of Info Wars said: “Joan Rivers talked about it the other day, and now it’s an international news story.

“The question is, ‘Who is Michelle Obama? Is she really a woman? Is she a man?

“Every time I look at Michelle or Michael Obama – the First Lady, or the First Tranny – something doesn’t look right.

“She doesn’t look like any black woman I’ve ever known.”
