Rips into Hamas, Selena Gomez

(YouTube)

Joan Rivers, I love you.

A TMZ camerman flagged down the comedian at LAX yesterday, asking her about the fighting between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. Rivers exploded, delivering a short but inspired defense of the Jewish state and ranting about the American media’s skewed coverage of the conflict. As she was turning to leave, the cameraman asked her to comment on the spate of celebrities—actress, singer, and Justin Bieber paramour Selena Gomez among them—who have expressed their support for the Palestinians on social media.

“Selena Gomez,” Joan Rivers snarled. “That college grad. Let’s see if she can spell ‘Palestinian.’” Which, ladies and gentlemen, is why she’s Joan Rivers.
