Joan Rivers, 81, told a reporter that President Barack Obama is the first gay president and that First Lady Michelle Obama is a “tranny.”

After officiating an impromptu wedding for Joe Aiello and his partner Jed Ryan at a signing for her new book “Diary of a Mad Diva” at an NYC Barnes & Noble on Monday, a reporter asked Rivers about the possibility of the first gay president,  to which she replied: “We already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.”

You know Michelle is a tranny,” Rivers added dismissively.

“Tranny” is a common slur used to described individuals on the trans* spectrum.

As previously reported by NewsOne, “Newsweek” named Obama America’s “First Gay President” in a controversial cover story.
