joan-rivers *Once again, Joan Rivers manages to spark a reaction.

This time she’s gone presidential, and maybe she’s stepped over the line  with her comments about the president and first lady.  To start with, Rivers labeled President Barack Obama America’s first gay president.

Her comments came after she recently officiated 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, according to NewsOne. When a reporter asked about the possibility of the country having its first gay president, Rivers replied: “We already have it with Obama, so let’s just calm down.”

The president wasn’t the only one caught in the comedienne’s crosshairs. Rivers also had words for First Lady Michelle Obama, who wasn’t spared at all from Rivers’ opinion.

“You know Michelle is a tranny,” Rivers said as she used the trasphobic slur in describing Mrs. Obama as a transgender individual.

Rivers’ comments come amid a controversial Newsweek cover story that named Mr. Obama America’s “First Gay President.”

While she’s good at speaking her mind and bringing the heat, Rivers apparently can’t take too much of it.

Speaking with CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield Saturday to about “Diary of a Mad Diva,” the former talk show host ended up walking out on the interview. During the chat, Whitfield suggested that Rivers’ “Fashion Police” commentary was “mean.”

Things apparently came to a head when Whitfield asked Rivers whether she was goading PETA activists by wearing a fur coat on the cover of her book, “Diary of a Mad Diva.”

At that point, Rivers reportedly had enough.

“This whole interview is turning into a defensive interview,” Rivers said. “Are you wearing leather shoes? Then shut up.”

A fed up Rivers ended up telling Whitfield that her questions had been “negative.”

“You are not the one to interview a person who does humor, sorry,” the funnywoman added.

From there, Rivers yanked out her earpiece and walked off from the interview.
