So-called, but completely unamusing “comedian” Kathy Griffin claims the infamous bloody shock photograph of herself clutching the fake, decapitated head of President Donald Trump would have blown over within days had Trump himself not responded to the photo on social media.
Then she later offered this obviously insincere, and scripted “apology”…
In an interview with Politico, the 57-year-old, Kathy Griffin, whines that seven months after the photo was first published by TMZ, she still can’t get a job.
“I think it would have been gone in a week without his tweet,” Griffin told Politico. “Trump knows what would be perceived as something hysterical and he loves hysteria. There are millions of people who think I’m a member of ISIS to this day.”
Griffin, who lives on the West Coast, figured out what had happened when her boyfriend starting getting calls from NBC and Fox News, minutes after the president’s tweet, she said.
Griffin found herself isolated, with no one defending what she saw as an edgy artistic statement. “After that, I had to go offline because of the death threats,” she said. “He didn’t use my handle in his tweet, so he didn’t have my followers coming after him.”
In the days after Trump highlighted the photo, the Emmy Award-winning comedian was fired from CNN, where she was set to co-host the channel’s New Year’s Eve show alongside Anderson Cooper. She was dropped as a celebrity endorser for Squatty Potty. The Secret Service launched an investigation. Today, she says she still can’t book a gig anywhere in the United States.
Griffin blames the change in her status to the president personally driving the outrage machine.“I think it would have been gone in a week without his tweet,” she admitted. “Trump knows what would be perceived as something hysterical and he loves hysteria. There are millions of people who think I’m a member of ISIS to this day.”
Because she might as well be.
Get over it Kathy. You brought it on yourself. Now go find a job as a night janitor at a nursing home for the blind and deaf, because nobody wants to hear or see from you again.
