This happened this weekend, but I feel it deserves a moment of reflection. Hey, you ask Joan Rivers for her feelings on Hamas at the airport and you’ll get a full helping of Joan Rivers. The increasingly unapologetic comedienne takes this opportunity to explain how self-defense works:
“Let me just tell you, if New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out. I am so bored,” said Rivers. “You cannot throw rockets and expect people not to defend themselves.”
The reporter then asked Rivers about Hamas using civilians as human shields, and Rivers retorted, “I don’t care. They started it! You’re all insane!”
Rivers continued, “BBC should be ashamed of themselves, and CNN should be ashamed of themselves, and everybody stop it already!”
Along with Mike Bloomberg, she’s been unexpectedly after my heart on a couple issues lately. Click the image below to watch.
