CNN Anchor Becomes Abusive in Interview with 81-yr old Joan Rivers Just Days After Rivers Makes Jokes About Obama & Michelle
Just days after she cracked controversial jokes about the Obamas, Joan Rivers stormed off CNN after being berated by host Fredericka Whitfield.
Appearing on the network’s Newsroom segment, the 81-year-old fielded questions from anchor Fredricka Whitfield before fuming that she’s had enough…’This whole interview is turning into a defensive interview,’ Rivers announced. Rivers contended that she was there to discuss to her new book, Diary Of A Mad Diva, but instead was put on the line for coming across as ‘mean’ on TV show Fashion Police and for wearing fur when she is an animal rights activist. …On Monday the comedienne was asked when she thought America would see a gay president in the White House, according to the: New York Daily News.
The octogenarian quickly shot back: ‘We already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.’
She then offered, without prompting, the following statement:: ‘You know Michelle is a tranny.’
‘A transgender,’ she swiftly corrected herself. ‘We all know. It’s okay.’
Apparently, the media sees it as their job to protect and defend Obama from lame jokes. They don’t even try to hide the fact that when it comes to this President, they’re lapdogs, not watchdogs. Also see: Interviewing Mark Levin About His New Book, “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America.”
