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:

"What is it about liberalism that brings out the UGLY in women?"

The just age so ungracefully. Compare a 45-60 year old formerly hot liberal womand with a similar conservative woman. It's shocking. The libs make it even worse by resorting to so much botox/plastic surgery they look like freaks or wax dummies.

She is a talentless Hollywod hack, who is managed by Rahm Emmanuel's brother Ari and who hooked up with loser levi Johnston in order to embarrass the Palins. She's also in league with the so-called Alaska "bloggers," who acted as Pete Rouse's political hit squad in driving Sarah from the governor's office.

Connect the dots...

-Griffin is represented by Hollywood super agent Ari Emanuel (brother of Rahm). She joked that Ari was terrified of Griffin doing something embarrassing when she films in Washington.

I don’t disagree with what you wrote, but in this case it is the USO that is embarrassing itself.

I have donated to them in the past. I will not anymore.

Comedian. That’s a laugh, right there. That ugly bitch should be working the Gay clubs in SF, putting down America, where her REAL act will be popular and her real following is. What the hell is wrong with the USO? someone needs to be fired for putting her dumb ass in front of the very troops that you know she despises.

Who hired that ugly, bitter skank to perform for the USO, anyway?

Yes, it strikes me of the F-T-A (F*** The Army) communists (like Jane Fond and Donald Sutherland) infitrating the USO to continue their anti-war protests in the very structure they seek to stir up dissent within.

Who is Kathy Griffin?

My first thought is "WHAT is Kathy Griffin?" Truth be told, she is one of a large number of alleged comedians on the circuit nowadays who are Don Rickles-wannabees, but haven't a clue how he did it or why it worked for him.

I saw Mr. Rickles a number of times and had the pleasure to meet him once. As abrasive and insulting as he could be in his "act", that's all it was. One of his trademarks (little known) was that he had a standing order with the wait staff anywhere he worked that if he started ragging on someone in the audience, their next round of drinks was ON HIM. This I know from witnessing it first hand.

Compare this to Griffin and other comedians who insult the audience then shrug and give you a "hey, it's a comedy show, whaddya want from me?" attitude when they cut too deep. There are a few big-time comedians that I will never again see live or in any other venue (movies, TV, etc.) because of this attitude.

Rove, you brilliant bastard! He knew Britney would sign on. She demonstrated her fealty to President Bush in 2002, when she told Carson Daly: “Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes, and we should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens.” A more loyal GOP foot-soldier could not be found

It’s not like everyone the USO asks to perform agrees to it. Just ask them. Even John Ondrasik (Five for Fighting) will tell you that not every act he asks to contribute to the “CD for the Troops” agrees to participate. Kathy Griffith is vulgar, but maybe she isn’t the biggest hater in hollywood.

Here is how the USO operates for these tours

http://www.military.com/NewContent/0,13190,SS_011504_USO,00.html

I don’t have a problem with a comedian making fun of a person (well..maybe not people with Downs Syndrome like Trig)

That is what comedians do...from Jerry Seinfeld to Dennis Miller.

But she showed she didn’t know her audience. I am glad they booed her.

No surprise, really. She's the filthiest, most prostituting performer, as evidenced by her opportunistic outreach to Levi (of course, he complied), calling him her boyfriend. Her scumminess knows NO bounds.
