Where is the outrage over Joan Rivers' comment?Submitted by ptpete25 on Wed, 07/09/2014 - 20:45
Really, I'm not interested in the topic of Michelle Obama. I don't buy the rumor, and even if true I couldn't care less about it. There are provable crimes to go after, not sexual sideshows designed to distract.
Having said that, it's been about a week since Joan Rivers publicly accused the President of being gay, and the FLOTUS of being a transgender, and there has been zero backlash or outrage against Joan. In fact, she did her much publicized CNN walkout, and I just saw her on Letterman, doing an unhindered tour to promote her book.
Can you imagine if Rush Limbagh or Glenn Beck or one of the Koch brothers had said such a thing publicly. They would be top news non-stop. Not that I like any of them, but the media would have a frenzy about the crazy bigotry of the right. Joan Rivers said it, right after officiating a gay wedding, and she's celebrated on her book tour with the slip of the tongue burned down the memory hole.
Interesting how people buy into what the television tells them.
