In one of the most vile and attention-whoring stunts of our lifetimes, Kathy Griffin has drawn nothing but harsh criticisms this week.
The self-professed “D-list” comedienne, who has been withering away before our very eyes on basic cable for decades, released photographs this week in which she was seen holding a bloody facsimile of President Donald Trump’s severed head. The image, which was created for no purpose other than to stir up controversy and interest in Griffin herself, was quickly lambasted by the left and right alike after being released. Reports of a traumatized Barron Trump were also prevalent, as the image shocked the youngest Trump whilst watching television.
Griffin has sputtered one fumbling apology already, and will be visited by the Secret Service, but then, sensing that she had lost the interest that she hoped to gain by taking the horrifically tasteless photo, the actress then held a press conference in a lame attempt to garner as much of her 15 minutes of infamy as she can.
During that press conference, however, Griffin continued to make a complete and utter fool of herself.
“Kathy Griffin accused President Donald Trump and his family of launching a campaign to destroy her life in response to the image she posted earlier this week in which she appeared to be holding the commander-in-chief’s severed head.
“The comedian broke down in tears as she detailed the torrent of abuse she has been receiving online, and the constant death threats which she described as detailed and specific.
“She stated however that she will not back down from this fight, saying: ‘I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He is a bully.’
“Later in the interview Griffin said that her career was likely over now as a result of this incident, and that President Trump had ‘broke’ her, moments after she declared: ‘There’s a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me!’
“Griffin, 56, declared at one point that this would not be happening to her if she was a ‘white man.’
“Her lawyer Lisa Bloom also suggested during the press conference that despite reports, Barron was likely not that upset after seeing the image of Griffin with the decapitated head by stating the child was ‘allegedly’ traumatized.
“‘We don’t know that. You’re assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false,’ said Bloom. “
The utter idiocy of Griffin and her lawyer’s statements is dumbfounding.
Griffin’s deserved grief is not emanating from the White House in the least, as President Trump has his hands full with actual issues. What Griffin is “suffering” from is the spirit of the American people who she so woefully offended. In an instance such as this, there is no left or right, no republican or democrat. There are those who will do to great lengths to live out their disturbing fantasy of murdering the President and then show off their handiwork to the world, and then there are those who don’t. It’s a binary qualifier: Either you think that Griffin’s behavior was correct, or you don’t. Unfortunately for Kathy Griffin, there is no possibility that she’ll find comrades here.
Then, as her lawyer began shooting “sexism!” at the top of her lungs, the nation collectively sighed. Bloom’s client spent time, energy, money, and resources to depict the ISIS-like beheading of the Commander in Chief of the United States of America, yet, we are supposed to believe that because she’s a woman she’s being “bullied”.
