Kathy Griffin calls Bristol Palin fat at USO event, and soldiers boo her

Kathy Griffin calls Bristol Palin fat at USO event, and soldiers boo her By Laura Donovan - The Daily Caller 11:06 AM 12/06/2010 ADVERTISEMENT

Comedian Kathy Griffin wasn’t so popular with the troops during her USO Diva’s Salute stand-up act on Sunday, when she poked fun at Bristol Palin’s weight.

“[Bristol Palin] is the only contestant in the history of ["Dancing with the Stars"] to actually gain weight.”

Following a chorus of boos, Griffin went on to say, “No, come on, come on. She gained, like, 30 pounds a week. I swear to God, it was fantastic. She’s like the white ‘Precious,’” referring to the obese African-American character in the eponymous 2009 film.

When the booing continued, Griffin shouted, “You can boo louder than that! Come on, boo me! I love it! I love it! War is Hell, war is Hell!”

This isn’t the first shot Griffin has taken at the Palin family. In 2009, Griffin made jokes about Sarah Palin’s infant Trig, who was born with Down Syndrome. Kathy Griffin justified calling Trig Palin a “retard baby” via Twitter:

It’s another case of ugliness not only on the surface but going to the core.

There is absolutely nothing about this woman that I like or find endearing. She is the most abrasive, abusive, nasty, mendacious, outrageous, rude, insolent, and blasphemous woman I have ever had the displeasure of hearing speak. She should just crawl into a lesbian hovel and stay there... skank.

Is it not enough that our soldiers are serving in that godforsaken hell hole? Must they also endure that foul mouthed train wreck?

Better idea—send Griffin to Gitmo. Let’s see how long Human Rights Watch tolerates that.

Mrs R2 had that show with Kathy Griffith on last night. I could not believe they allow that nasty skank bitch to host.

I wasn’t watching it, but any show that would have that whore on is maybe a degree or two better than a Comedy Central roast.

Part of being an entertainer is understanding your audience and the best entertainers understand this all too well, which explains why Kathy Griffin is third-rate entertainer. Perhaps she’s hoping to get off Hollywood’s D-list, but I’m sure they think she’s a putz too.

First and foremost, Griffin is not funny. Beyond that, despite what one thinks of Bristol Palin from a political perspective (and it is her mother who is the politician), she is a lovely girl who is not fat.

Griffin is simply embarrassing herself.

I can’t imagine the USO sponsoring anyone who said those kinds of things about Michelle Obama or the two daughters.

This liberal no class biatch reminds me of that other liberal no class biatch, Sandra Bernnhardt. They’re both about as “funny” as a sack of dead puppies.

And the response by our troops explains why Obozo prevented them from casting absentee ballots while, at the same time, had his SEIU and ACORN flunkies voting dead folks and illegals all over the country.

“I’m genuinely a fan of most of the people I trash in the act,” said Griffin in an interview. “I really, really try and focus on making fun of people for their behavior. I’m not so into making fun of someone for the way they look, or something that’s out of their control.”

Good Lord! Put that image alongside Joy Behar and you’ll see Griffin in 20 years. What is it about liberalism that brings out the UGLY in women?

The good news is, natural selection ought to take care of things eventually, when no male chooses to mate with them.

She’s on the social D list out in Hollyweird.

That stands for either Dumb Ass or Drag Queen, possibly both.

It’s my understanding that she’s spent thousands of dollars on plastic surgery, having almost every procedure currently available. It’s sad that she is as bitter and unhappy as ever.

Why they invited her in the 1st place is beyond me. Invite someone that’s actually funny. Invite someone who actually supports and loves her country. She’s surrounded by people that support and love their country.

Who’s next in the line up? Saul Alinsky? Julian Assange?

Remember: A person is not condemned by what goes into his mouth but what comes out of it. I’d like to think that even our words, not just our actions will be counted on Judgement Day.

Shame on her for being so disrespectful to the troops.

Kathy Griffin used to be a reasonably funny stand-up comedienne. Then she became notorious for being “mean”, and it’s been a downward spiral as she gets meaner and meaner to keep up with her own reputation.

I want to be appreciative of ANYone who volunteers time for the troops (e.g., Al Franken), but this? I can’t be appreciative of this. It’s not as though Griffin was taking herself away from a busy, lucrative career.

It’s not that you can’t fix ugly....it’s just that when ugly goes to the very CORE of your being, no amount of surgery can help you.

Miss Griffin is just such a person.
