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:

Why are you trying to punish the USO for having a so called comedian perform who told bad jokes? They can figure out if the acts who are willing to perform for the USO should be asked back again or not, don’t you think?

I could care less what Bristol Palin weighs. She's not my nutritionist. And the picture (my MIL would refer to her as a floozy) at the link shows a trim/muscular Kathy Griffin. Looks like she might be a bit obsessive about body weight, and so on.

Good for the troops booing her. Why would she make such a comment to that audience anyway? "Dumber than a box of rocks," as my father liked to say.

At least Bristol isn't half plastic.

You mean she has had work done and she still looks like that?!?!? Looking at her, I am sure she has a great case for a malpractice law suit!!

I just received a letter requesting a donation to USO. Now I have to ask myself, should I or shouldn’t i, and who the Hell is the bloody idiot at USO who was involved with this skank in the first place?

Same here. The USO entertained my father and other family members from WWII through today's conflicts overseas. I've always loved the USO and have supported them over the years with small donations.

I'm sick of these America-haters like Griffin, Rahm Emanuel's brother's client, btw. The USO should NOT be supporting cretins like this to "entertain" our troops. Until the USO fires Kathy Griffin and others like her, there are plenty of other pro-troops, pro-America charities that I can support.

Send your comments to the USO here... I just did:

Just because Griffin has 'visited' our troops, doesn't make her patriotic.... She's offensive beyond the pale...

..and the irony is...Griffin and her lesbian sisters, Margaret Cho and Ellen DeGeneres would be the FIRST to accuse someone of 'bullying if the situation was turned around.

Recently in the news, Cho is 'bullying' Bristol.....and Ellen bemoans the poor innocents-(ie 'gay') who are bullied....

..yet Cathy thinks it too is OK to bully Bristol.

Their hypocrisy is unceasing!

Looking at that picture, I am not seeing any issue with her weight! Besides, IF Bristol did gain weight, I am pretty sure it was MUSCLE! She is a healthy girl who is stoutly built (like most people I know from Alaska)!!!!

That is not the bikini pic I was refering to. The pic you posted is an older shot and she looks good in it. The latest ones are nasty..her butt is drooping from loose skin. She lost her weight too fast.

Oh please, as the mother of a Marine, don’t stop donating to them because of this ONE person. They do so much good that goes beyond entertainment. More than once my son’s had a long layover and has been able to go to the USO in the airport. He’s gotten a shower, a meal, a bed, even a couple of paperback books he could take with him. They provide them an opportunity to call home. There’s much behind the scenes we don’t see. By supporting them you support the troops.

It's a "bad joke" to call Sarah Palin's baby who has Down's Syndrome a "retard"? And that's just one example of many of Griffin's past "jokes". She has a history of hating America and everything to do with the Right. She has NO place in the USO and should be cut off immediately.

I just sent the USO an earful via e-mail (rather than a donation this time).

Contact the USO:

https://www.uso.org/contact-the-uso.aspx

I'll send future donations based on the response - or lack of a response - I get from them regarding "entertainers" like Griffin. In the meantime, there are plenty of other pro-troops, pro-America charities to support.

No, really, Kath, if you think Bristol Palin looks like the white Gabby Sidibe, you’re not only old, dried up and oversurgeried, you’re blind.

Let’s be honest. I understand why Levi Johnston nailed Bristol. What I don’t understand is how, after hitting that, he would want to nail you.

EXACTLY! My father saw patriot Bob Hope via the USO in the Pacific during WWII.

Who the heck is running the USO now, hiring the likes of gutter skank Kathy Griffin??

My understanding is that the USO pays for expenses (e.g. travel) but does not pay for the performance. Again, if the troops don’t like a performer, don’t you think that would be apparent to the USO? They sign people on to entertain the troops, not to annoy them.

Oh Kathy you are so “cutting edge” with your comedy. This type of comedy won’t get you a job but maybe just for laughs it will get invited to the important liberal parties.
Just remember when you look in the mirror, Bristol can lose the weight, you will always be ugly.
