WATCH – Kathy “ISIS” Griffin Claims Trump Administration Persecutes Her Because She’s Female *VIDEO* #Trump #ISIS

Kathy Griffin, who imagines she’s actually a funny comedian, in an interview that aired Friday on “Rising” said that the government singled her out after she posted a photo of her holding a fake severed head resembling President Trump because she’s a woman.

“I was on the no-fly list, and I had to be interrogated, like I said, by the feds under oath,” Griffin told Hill.TV’s Jamal Simmons on Thursday.

“That also didn’t happen to any of the other guys who supposedly threatened the president, and I was singled out, and I think it’s because I’m a woman, and probably because I’m 57, and I don’t have a big network or studio behind me,” she continued.

Or could it be because she’s a washes up, half-baked, barely ever a comedian that behaves like a member of Islamic State like in the video below?

Griffin was met with widespread backlash last year after she posted the photo on Twitter and she initially apologized for the move.

Trump, himself slammed the comedian for the picture, saying she should be “ashamed.”

She had multiple shows canceled during the fallout from the photo and was fired from her position as a host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage.

She has since begun performing in other shows and will perform at the Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

Griffin told Simmons she is still dealing with the fallout from the picture.

“I’m still dealing with the fallout from the photo in everyday life,” she said.

“I mean, I was walking down the street last week, and four people came up to me and were screaming, ‘You’re a traitor, you’re an ISIS.’ Like I said, it’s almost comical. Like, oh yeah, ISIS is recruiting a lot of 57-year-old, red-haired Irish comedian. Yeah, that’s their first choice.”


Earlier this year, Kathy “ISIS” Griffin, took to Twitter to whine about her self-inflicted plight, and display her paranoia, saying that she’d been placed on a “kill list” and subjected to constant threats.

See her infamous beheading video below.

Then she posted this staged and completely insincere “apology”.

In a multi-part social-media jeremiad, Griffin also suggested that she’d been bad-mouthed by certain people in the television industry.

Telling her followers that things “have not gotten better for me,” Griffin continued, “In fact, I just found out I’m on a brand new ‘Kill List.’ Constant death threats and threats of violence toward me in very specific ways. None of the social media platforms I need to make a living and sell my tour tickets will step in and help at all.”

The former “My Life on the D-List” star went on to call out “Trump, and his game criminals, and the right leaning alt-right media,” saying they “have not let up on me.”

Calling it “literally a relentless campaign,” Griffin went on to turn her attention to Ryan Seacrest, writing, “I hear Ryan Seacrest is ‘mad’ at me and spreading the word around” because she had hired a stylist who accused him of untoward behavior.

Griffin also said that someone “in the booking dept.” of Stephen Colbert’s show has a “‘bad taste’ about me in their mouth,” saying she’s heard it’s because her former publicist said something “that I am not privy to.”


Griffin also said that someone at “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” a “show I have done many times for free, ” has “a ‘problem with me’” and they’re “spreading the word around.”

Griffin wrapped up her social-media vent, “Ok,now, I will get back to work doing anything and everything I can to sell out every single show on my tour. TIMES NOT UP YET Love, KG.”

TheWrap has reached out to a spokesperson for Facebook, as well as to a spokesperson for Seacrest, for comment on Griffin’s statements. A Twitter spokesperson told TheWrap on Monday, “we take all reports of abuse seriously and will take appropriate action on anything that violates our Terms of Service.”
