Does Kathy Griffin’s Self-Destruction Guarantee Her a Job with MSNBC?

We have been witness to a self-destruction that is most certainly pathological and consistent with much of what Kathy Griffin has said on TV to say nothing of her small-room stand-up act.

Kathy Griffin’s press conference to whine the Trump family is bullying her was an expected dump with dry-eyed tears as she was apparently cried out on the realization she had committed professional suicide with a photo shoot that cost her several thousand Dollars.  Let us hope the photography insisted on the money up front.

Now she is also wailing the Secret Service is investigating her, not realizing the one call she got is the only one they will ever make as she is not only a mess, but a joke.

Kathy claims she is being bullied by the Trumps because Melania and all the Trump’s children have made disparaging remarks for her posing with a red, blood dripping head of their father the President of the United States?  Is this woman an idiot?  Will the sun come up tomorrow.

Had she pulled this stunt in Old Salem, Massachusetts she would literally be toast now, burnt toast.  Why do I have the feeling she will get her own show on MSNBC in six month?  They have Brian Lian Williams and Dan Rather.  All they need is Al “The Lion of the Senate” Franken, according to his memoir title and a few other disgraced Democrats to fill out the roster then they can give Fox a real run for their money if the Murdocks don’t destroy it with their death wish management tack.

Meanwhile Kathy Griffin hired attorney-to-the annoying Lisa Bloom, the only lady lawyer who has ever caught an ambulance in high heels and can can get in front of a TV camera quicker than a Road Runner bird can snag a desert rat.  Kathy’s career has less life in it than a mob planted “lump in the desert.”

Famous for having said, “If you don’t stand up, you get run over,” she apparently never heard of “18 wheelers,” “the President of the United States” or the mass of “deplorable voters,” to say nothing of the fickle Democrats who will drop a stink bomb like Kathy quicker than Peewee Herman in a darkened movie theater.

Kathy’s one moment of truth in the press conference was her saying, What’s happening to me has never happened in this great country. A sitting President of the U.S. … is personally trying to ruin my life forever.”  She is right only because we have never had a “D List entertainer,” her self deprecating label, that was a gross overestimation of her fame.  When it turns on you, Kathy, you are not even on that list!  This woman has Monica Lewinsky beaten badly without even getting a stain on her dress!  Could any man imagine being intimate with Kathy now?  If ever…

So what is Kathy’s analysis?  She said of the President, “He picked the wrong redhead.”  Let us remind Ms. Griffin that Mr. Trump did not pick here at all.  She picked on him and did such a bad job of it no one is taking her side.  We can only credit her with one thing:  She has found the Absolute Zero of bad taste.

Nonetheless, we expect to see more of Kathy Griffin for the simple reason that she is a compulsive cameraholic.  She must have publicity and be in the public eye.  In a matter of months she will be back on our screens even if only being scrapped up from the sidewalks of New York.
