JOAN RIVERS at it again with her bombshell claims heard around the world that Pres. Obama is "gay" and Michelle a “trans”.

The tart tongued comedienne and face lift devotee recently officiated a same-sex wedding and was asked by a photog if she believed the United States would ever see the first gay or female president.

Her response was typical “I have a book to sell” Joan Rivers.

"We already have it with Obama, so let's just calm down," she said. "You know Michelle is a trans."

When asked to elaborate, Rivers snapped, "A transgender. We all know it."

But now the feisty funny femme has backtracked.

Rivers’ rep released this statement from the comic about her remarks: "I think it's a compliment. She's so attractive, tall, with a beautiful body, great face, does great makeup. Take a look and go back to La Cage Au Follies (sic).

“The most gorgeous women are transgender," Joan stated.

“Stop it already … and if you want to talk about 'politically correct,' I think this is a 'politically incorrect' attack on me because I'm old, Jewish, a woman and a 'hetty' — a heteosexual … and I plan to sue the reporter who, when he turned off his camera, tried to touch me inappropriately on the a** – luckily he hit my ankle.

“Read the book … if you think that's silly, wait to (sic) you see what I say about FDR and Eleanor!"

What? Polio plagued playboy and lesbian first lady?! Oh Joan….
