    Comedian Kathy Griffin says she’s “no longer sorry” for the President Trump beheading stunt that jeopardized her career. Ms. Griffin, who was investigated by the Secret Service and fired from her New Year’s Eve hosting gig at CNN after being photographed in May holding a Donald Trump mask covered in fake blood, said in a heated interview on Australia’s “Sunrise” TV program that she thinks the backlash was completely overblown. “I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody,” she said. “Like, I had Chelsea Clinton...

    Kathy Griffin says that she is no longer sorry for disseminating a photo of her holding up a severed, bloodied head resembling President Donald Trump's. Griffin spoke with an Australian television show where she was asked about the controversy, and said she was not sorry for it. The fallen comedian blamed her career downfall on Trump supporters, despite the fact that Democrats, including a self-described friend, actress Debra Messing, and Chelsea Clinton condemned the photo

    Nothing is stopping Kathy Griffin. After what appears to be a fake hacking announcement on her Twitter on Saturday, the 56-year-old comedian released a video on Sunday announcing her "Laugh Your Head Off" world tour, with a video showing her smiling and ready to take the microphone. "Are you ready for me to say some things that are so horrible I can never take them back?" she asks. The video and her Twitter page also features a photo of the comedian holding a globe in a shot similar to her controversial one, where she held a bloodied replica of President...

    News of Australia ^ | August 16, 2017 | Nick Bond
    COMEDIAN Kathy Griffin has posted a bizarre, grovelling letter she claims she received from a high-powered US TV executive and was ordered to forward on to US President Donald Trump in the hopes of rehabilitating her career. The controversial comic weathered her biggest scandal yet in June when she posted footage from a photo shoot in which she held a dummy Trump severed head aloft. Reaction from both sides of the US political divide was swift and brutal, and Griffin apologised as networks and brands rushed to disassociate themselves from her. The scandal certainly hurt Griffin’s career — and also...

    Comedian and actress Kathy Griffin has reportedly been interviewed by the U.S. Secret Service for more than an hour. The investigation is connected to a recent photograph which showed her holding the bloody head of Donald Trump.(TWEET-AT-LINK) Griffin’s attorney contends that the actress was just exercising her constitutional rights. “She basically exercised her First Amendment rights to tell a joke,” Dmitry Gorin, a criminal defense attorney representing Griffin said. “When you look at everything in the media, all the times entertainers make videos or express themselves in other ways, you’ve never seen an entertainer, let alone a comedian, be subject...

    Kathy Griffin has hit out at Donald Trump after he viciously tore into the hosts of Morning Joe. The comedian accused the president of 'punching down' after he attacked 'low I.Q. Crazy Mika' and 'Psycho Joe' in Thursday morning tweets for trash talking him on their show - prompting a huge backlash against Trump. Griffin, who has kept a relatively low profile since she sparked outrage by posting a mock-up of Trump's severed head earlier this month, criticized Trump's tweets and accused him of bullying those less powerful than himself. 'POTUS likes to punch down. Whether it's anchors, US Attorneys,...

    Amid rising concerns of politically motivated violence on college campuses, one college professor wants to see Republicans executed and has declared so publicly. Professor John Griffin of the Art Institute of Washington posted on Facebook that House Republicans “should be lined up and shot” for passing the American Health Care Act to reform Obamacare. Anthony Gockowski of Campus Reform has the story: “They should be lined up and shot,” Professor John Griffin posted to his Facebook, according to a screenshot of the post obtained by Campus Reform, even clarifying that he wasn’t being hyperbolic, saying “that’s not hyperbole; blood is...

    Remember how well Kathy Griffin’s little “prank” where she symbolically decapitated the President went over? Oh, man. What a hoot. She’s a real cut-up, isn’t she? (Er… sorry.) Rather than being embraced by the Left in a unified block, nearly everyone turned on her and declared that we didn’t need that sort of thing in our national discussion. Even CNN cut her loose, and corporate sponsors quickly moved away from any projects with her name associated with it. Well now we may have the next example of this phenomenon. A performing arts group known as The Public Theater, based in...

    While thousands joined the Equality March for Unity and Pride June 11 in Washington, D.C., Chicago was one of dozens of cities nationwide to hold its own rally as part of Pride Month and in honor of the 49 people who were killed at the Pulse Nightclub shootings in Orlando one year ago. The venue for the Chicago Equality Rally was the Pride Stage at Midsommarfest in the heart of Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood. Celebrated actor, writer and producer Fawzia Mirza served as the rally's emcee. Her powerful, exuberant voice was echoed by a crowd whose raucous enthusiasm was unencumbered by...

    The Hill ^ | June 10, 2017 | Joe Concha
    HBO host Bill Maher said Friday that Kathy Griffin made a mistake but "should not go away" following the furor over her joking about beheading the president. Maher delivered a fierce defense of making mistakes as a comedian "going for a laugh" on his show this week. He said that comedienne Griffin owes him "a fruit basket for getting her off the front page" after he caused an uproar for using the n-word on his HBO program the prior week. Griffin was fired from her annual New Year's Eve co-hosting gig by CNN last week after holding up a bloodied...

    Monday on ABC's The View, hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg defended and downplayed two left-wing comedians who got into hot water this past week. After Kathy Griffin posed in a photo with a bloodied, severed head of the president, and then later played the victim after being called out for the egregious display, HBO Real Time host Bill Maher caused outrage after using the “N-word” during an interview with Senator Ben Sasse on his Friday show. Despite both cases receiving bipartisan backlash, the radically liberal hosts on The View actually defended both comedians’ actions. Adamantly anti-Trump host Joy Behar...
  • Griffin Gives Worst Press Conference of All Time

    O'Dwyer's ^ | June 5, 2017 | Fraser Seitel
    Seasoned public relations people understand that the press conference is probably the worst setting for any loose-tongued client, especially one ready to pick a fight. Think Donald Trump on his worst day — which is pretty awful — Or Mel Gibson after his anti-Semitic tirade. Or Michael “Kramer” Richards after his racist meltdown. Exposing these ticking time bombs to nasty media questions in an uncontrolled environment is PR suicide. Indeed, no PR person worth his or her hourly rate would ever recommend a press conference when a more controllable sit-down interview would do. If you doubt that wisdom, consider America’s...

    Kathy Griffin is a great gal. Before you slam down whatever newspaper you are reading onto your table or desk (or punch the monitor of your computer if you’re reading this online), bear with me. It’s not exactly what you think. I still believe with every fiber of my being that Griffin is a vile slice of humanity, ugly in body and soul and bereft of the one thing she pretends to have in spades: humor. Her voice is grating. And her soul, what of it there might be in those murky inner depths, is bitter. And yet, Griffin has...

    A racial slur. A homophobic joke. A mock beheading. Anti-Trump comedians are having a moment — and not the good kind. (snip...) antics like these are the exact opposite of the Michelle Obama maxim: “When they go low, we go high.”

    The whole world has gone hyper-stupid at light speed It’s another trophy week for the planet Earth. Here in the United States a 56-year-old has-been comedienne joined a burgeoning crowd of other has-been celebrities in garnering press on the beat-to-death “I hate Trump” train. It seemed that when she discovered her beheading stunt backfired into her wallet, she got real sorry - for a moment. The tears fell like rain. Then she obviously hooked up with a lawyer who encouraged her to push even harder instead of apologizing.

    The best argument against climate change is: what else can explain the ever-growing number of absolute nut cases right here in the USA? Tiger Woods must be elated that the video of his sad and embarrassing stop by Florida law enforcement got tossed to the side quickly thanks to Kathy Griffin’s disgusting antics, Hillary Clinton’s ongoing and all-encompassing blame game, and people such as Whoopi Goldberg saying our country’s leadership is no different than the Taliban. For starters, Kathy Griffin looked pathetic and received little to no sympathy after her non-comedic effort of holding a beheaded doll of President Donald...

    After comedian Kathy Griffin's attorney referenced bands like Municipal Waste and GWAR as other public figures who have created "disturbing imagery" involving President Trump, both bands have come to Griffin's defense. Check out exactly what they said below! Comedian Kathy Griffin recently made headlines around the world after the comedian posted a picture of herself holding a bloodied decapited Donald Trump head. Since then, she's been fired from her position as co-host of CNN's annual New Year's Eve program along with being slammed from the Trump family. Griffin was also slammed by her former co-host of CNN's New Year's Eve...

    Normalcy among Democrats is Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and her voice scrambler, Kathy Griffin and her bloody head, and Hillary Clinton, the queen of denial. Democrats have been enjoying the difficulty Republicans and the Trump administration have in governing, but their schadenfreude is worse than useless. Cheering the deaths of their enemies’ children is fun for people who are depraved, but it does not heal the hole in their own black hearts. Democrats are sick and getting worse. Emotionally, Democrats are disconnected from reality. Hillary Clinton in an interview blamed her election loss on a combination of Russian and Macedonian conspiracists with...

    Baldwin called on comedian Kathy Griffin to ignore President Trump's criticism of a photo she took holding up a decapitated head of the president. [Snip] "Trump is such a senile idiot, all he has is Twitter fights," Baldwin tweeted. Baldwin then evoked his own 1998 rant on Conan O'Brien's show about calling for the stoning of former Republican lawmaker Henry Hyde to death. Baldwin's comments were how Hyde and other lawmakers were voting to impeach former President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
