‘Comedian’ Kathy Griffin had what she thought was a really funny idea. Why not emulate ISIS and take a photo showing her smiling and holding a realistic looking bloody head of President Trump? How edgy! How funny!
And to add to the mirth,the president’s 11-year-old son Barron saw it on TV and was terrified that his father had been decapitated.
Now, some of the Left behaved in their usual manner, but I’m pleasantly surprised to relate that a number of them saw this for exactly what it was…cruel, unacceptable and a despicable and heartless insult to those whose loved ones have been at the receiving end of this kind of treatment from ISIS.
One of the first was Chelsea Clinton:
Anderson Cooper is a long time friend of Griffin’s and the one chiefly responsible for her gig as a CNN contributor. She was also scheduled as his partner for CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast. After this, he apparently decided he wants nothing more to do with her:
CNN, to its credit, fired Kathy Griffin as a contributor as well as removing her from the New Year’s Eve broadcast. And 5 venues canceled her scheduled appearances on a comedy tour, with more apparently to be following.
President Trump was relatively restrained.
Don Jr., who has an 8-year-old and a ten-year old was particularly angry because his kids heard about this at school.
Kathy Griffin had issued a non-apology of the “I’m sorry if you were offended’ kind a few days ago which did not even bother to mention the Trump family directly. Few apparently bought it. So her next step? Why of course, claim to be a victim! As the Daily Mail reported, the 56-year-old comedian gave a tearful presser in which she claimed she’s receiving death threats, that President Donald Trump and his family were launching a campaign to destroy her, and that “There’s a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me! This wouldn’t be happening to me if I was a man!”
“I’ve had everybody turn on me. And I just want to make people laugh.” Boo hoo hoo hoo…
Well, you made me laugh, Kathy. Here’s a woman who called Trump a bully in her presser (between sobs) who was cold and callous about working out on an 11-year -old child. She and the photographer involved,one Tyler Shields even admitted that Barron was one of her targets and would continue to be, saying, ‘So I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump – and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.’
What’s the matter cupcake? You can dole it out just fine, but you can’t take it? As far as I’m concerned, you got off easy, and I’m hoping worse is to come.
This witch has the nerve to call anyone else a bully? And to sit there and sob about about how everybody has turned on her and her precious career is in danger? Now that’s laugh out loud funny. And it will be even funnier if her next gig is midnight shift cashier at a local convenience store. I’m not certain, but she might be able to handle the demands of that one.
One thing she doesn’t have to worry about is those alleged ‘death threats.’ I doubt anyone would want to put this truly wretched and dysfunctional human being out of her misery.
