Joan says she’s happy Donald Trump got the president to unveil his long-form birth certificate.

Joan Rivers is team Donald Trump! HollywoodLife.com spoke with the Emmy-Award-winning comedian at a LensCrafters event on April 28 and she revealed that she supports Donald despite the fact he publicly bashed President Barack Obama. She credits Donald for the President finally revealing his official birth certificate on April 27, and she believes Obama coming to New York this week shows he isn’t doing his job in the Oval Office.

“This country is f**king falling apart and I think we need to take a stand,” Joan says. “I don’t think President Obama should be in New York raising money for an election that is two years away. I think he should be somewhere in California or somewhere in Washington and worrying about what’s going on in the Middle East. I’m really not interested in him doing a fund- raising dinner — and I voted for him! I think President Obama should go back to the White House and work.”

Many believe that Donald was way out of line for saying things like: “there’s a lot we don’t know about this guy,” when referring to the President, for repeatedly saying he had “terrible grades” in school and mocking his Harvard and Columbia degrees. But Joan doesn’t see this as a negative, and she thinks Donald should run on the Republican ticket in 2012.

“We’re all yelling and screaming about Donald, but Donald is the one that got President Obama to do it,” Joan says. “Donald is the first man in history that got a President to show something that a President shouldn’t show. We could use Donald’s push and self confidence and total authority in a lot of our statesmen. Donald is going to shake it all up [if he runs] and it’s great. The country needs shaking up.”

What do you think HollywoodLifers: Should we elect Donald to take the wheel?
