Kathy Griffin posed for a picture of herself holding up what appears to be Donald Trump’s decapitated head, blood included. The head is gruesome looking. As someone who has seen the videos of beheadings of Americans at the hands of hooded, knife-wielding crazies who then proclaim the greatness of God, I fail to see any sort of comedy.
Neither did a lot of other people, both Democrats and Republicans. The backlash has been severe, and just.
Kathy Griffin’s immediate career has been put on hold. She came out with a sincere apology and did a good job, but she should have left it at that. The news conference that followed was quite bizarre. She made it sound as if she was being personally stalked by Donald Trump. “A sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the first lady are personally, I feel, personally trying to ruin my life forever,” and she claims over and over again, “He broke me.”
Um, you broke you.
While numerous sponsors and job opportunities have already been cut from Kathy’s life, I wonder what type of private hell she sits in. Is she receiving death threats, recruitment letters from ISIS? Is she responding to legal issues including inciting the public to violence, threatening the POTUS? Is she being surveilled? Yes, maybe, yes, yes, yes.
We all know the Donald is vindictive.
Kathy Griffin claimed during the news interview about Donald, “He picked the wrong redhead,” as if he messed with the wrong girl. No, Kathy, you messed with the wrong man. As for her comment, “I’m not going to be collateral damage for this fool,” that remains to be seen, but it isn’t looking good.
