Not very funny, and somehow I think Lincoln had too much sense to hang with Joan Rivers:
On NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Friday, comedienne Joan Rivers said Abraham Lincoln was gay.
This came seconds after the 79-year-old woman said she had sex with the 16th president using a vulgar word that begins with an “F”‘
JIMMY FALLON, HOST: But here’s the deal, because I know that you were dating, you were living, you dated a president at one point, didn’t you?
JOAN RIVERS: Yeah, yeah. You know, people look at me now and you see an older woman. I lived, trust me. I had a very, I, this is going to sound, get ready to bleep, I f—ked Abe Lincoln.
[Cheers and applause]
FALLON: That’s a first. Really?
RIVERS: That man would have been alive today except he was gay and he kept it quiet.
FALLON: Oh, I didn’t know that.
RIVERS: Oh, the shawl. Grow up.
FALLON: So he would be alive today?
RIVERS: He would be alive today if he had listened. I said to him “Stay in bed,” and he said “No, I want to go to theater.” And that was it.
