Scott Brown Slams Kathy Griffin for Calling Daughters 'Prostitutes'

Scott Brown Slams Kathy Griffin for Calling Daughters 'Prostitutes'

July 16, 2010 Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown slammed comedian Kathy Griffin for making a crude joke about his two daughters.

Griffin, star of “My Life on the D List” made the comments on the Bravo network Tuesday night. The segment features Griffin being shown a photograph of Brown by two CNN reporters, John King and Dana Bash. Griffin identifies Brown in the picture, saying, “Scott Brown, who is a senator from Massachusetts and has two daughters that are prostitutes.” Bash erupts in laughter at Griffin’s comment.

But Brown wasn’t laughing, blasting Griffin and Bravo for the segment.

“People can call me any name they want, but families are off limits," he said in the statement made through spokeswoman Gail Gitcho. "I love my daughters Ayla and Arianna very much, and any parent would be proud to have them as children. Kathy Griffin and Bravo ought to be ashamed of themselves.”

At the end of the clip, Griffin runs a disclaimer “from Bravo’s legal team,” saying the girls are not, in fact, “prostitutes.”

Ayla Brown is a former NCAA basketball player and recording artist. She is now a contributor for CBS’ “The Early Show.” Arianna Brown is currently a pre-med student at Syracuse University.

Griffin also insults former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in the segment, saying “Remember when the Republican’s tried to get that nutbag Sarah Palin to sound credible before the vice presidential debates? They had a board and ran flash cards to teach her the tough stuff, like there is both a North and South Korea. Well, that’s sort of like what John and Dana did for me.”

He’s the prostitute. I wonder if he thought voting with the dems would make the media like him. Screw Scott Brown.

Kathy Griffin is a no-talent, attention-seeking (fill in the blank). Remember at some so-called awards show when she said “suck it Jesus”? She is just vile.

Calling his daughters prostitutes is wrong. Calling Scott a prostitute for selling out those of us who supported him and wrote him checks, however, seems completely appropriate.

Every time any senator votes with the Democrats he or she is cuddling up to the prostitutes who finance Harry Reid's campaigns.

The red haired witch was over the top with Senator Brown's daughters.

If Brown kills her he needs me on his jury. We'll know he's sincere if he's particularly brutal!

Senator Scott Brown is NOT absolutely NOT a political prostitute.

Prostitutes get PAID.

He just got USED.

I'm sure you'll be OVERJOYED when Mr. Brown is replaced by the voters of Massachusetts with a Kennedy-like orthodox liberal. Math wasn't your strong suit in school, was it?

I don’t why Ms. Griffin is so angry, but she is.

I saw one of her shows that documented her father’s death, and I believe they buried him in Ireland. She exhibited some degree of humanity in that show.

But her comments, for the most part, are nothing but cheap shots designed to generate cheap laughs - usually at someone’s expense.

I cannot believe that she was was raised as a Catholic.

Her whole life is an abomination.

I pity her. I really do. And I will pray for her.

Although crass, I used to think Kathy Griffin was funny. No longer. She is a vile, disgusting, gay obsessed, low life, who isn't even funny.

If I were Scott Brown I would say “Kathy Griffen, who?

Her parents were mean drunks, so she perhaps developed her comed to protect herself.I don’t like her, but she does mock and deride the entertainment industry is a way that hasn’t been done before.

Mass. voters are likely to vote in a genuine Democrat liberal if the GOP gives up on Brown. He is a RINO, but does vote with the party more than his likely replacement does. The GOP should work to get out way left Dem. senators such a Reid-NV, Feingold-WI, etc. this November and maybe a lost vote on the Frank-Dodd bad & ugly finance bill can be fixed another way.

Kathy Griffin is a no-talent,

I've had the (unpleasant) occasion to surf through her show a couple of times. It's sort of like watching a train wreck, I just couldn't look away.

Anyhoo, what I saw had her in Europe. She defines - no, re-writes the entire book upon - the term "Ugly American". She made me want to go over to where ever she was and apologize to everyone.

Sticks and stones. This is carefully scripted “outrage” designed to stir up the little old ladies who still send in checks to politicians. FDR started it.

Nice summary. I must agree with you, as one of those who wrote him a check and still gets his solicitations.

Well, I did have problems during my first year of algebra.

Brown WAS the best we could hope for at the time. I was celebrating just as loud as anyone else when he won. I wasn’t shouting that he should be our next president as some did, but I was extremely happy.

However, with each passing vote—with the democrats— he seems more like a democrat to me, so I no longer trust him.

I too drive a pickup and I no longer see him as on our side.

Now, you can go on with your rant at me, but you might want to know that such B/S fails to impress me.

Plying nice with others wasn’t your strong suit in school, was it?

So far, has Scott Brown voted with the Republicans on ANY critical key vote to stop the socialist-commie pig 0bozo & his demoRAT wrecking crew? Next up.... Scott Brown votes for Elena Kagen to help bolster 0bozo from a judicial branch.

"So far, has Scott Brown voted with the Republicans on ANY critical key vote to stop the socialist-commie pig 0bozo & his demoRAT wrecking crew? Next up.... Scott Brown votes for Elena Kagen to help bolster 0bozo from a judicial branch."

Thus far, he's voted with the Democrats less than 20% of the time. He's announced that he will not support the Disclose Act and Card Check. As promised, he has not voted for a single piece of legislation that raised taxes. Without Scott Brown, this latest financial regulation bill would have raised almost $20 billion in NEW TAXES. Instead, the funding the program with already appropriated TARP funds. It's not perfect but it WAY BETTER than it would have been with a Democrat in that seat.

Will he vote for Kagan? Probably. But, a vote against Kagan in very liberal MA - especially considering Kagan has close ties to MA - is probably untenable. Remember, Brown has to stand for reelection in a year that Obama will be on the ballot. Irrespective of how unpopular Obama might be by then, he IS going to carry MA, handily.

Brown as a HUGE uphill fight to keep his seat. I suggest that it's far better to have a Senator from MA who votes for a Republican leader, Republican Committee Chairman and most Republican judges and who votes with Republicans 70-80% of the time, rather than someone who votes with the Democrats 100% of the time, and who votes for Democrat leader in the Senate.
