Kathy Griffin wants Donald Trump's head ... but she wants
it bloody and detached from his body.
Comedian Kathy Griffin’s latest publicity stunt is beyond the pale and completely despicable.
Here’s to hoping the Left gets as annoyed with Kathy Griffin as Cosmo Kramer did in 1998.
Griffin has since belatedly apologized after a firestorm of criticism.Senators Al Franken (D-MN) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) should especially take notice. Both have benefited from thousands of dollars in political donations from Griffin over the past few years. Franken is even scheduled to hold an event alongside Griffin in a few weeks in Beverly Hills.
Will Franken and Cortez Masto hang on to Griffin’s campaign cash? Will Franken still stand by Griffin at his book promotion event in a few weeks?Kathy Griffin Has Donated Thousands To Democrat Politicians Al Franken & Catherine Cortez Masto:
$2,600 To Al Franken For Senate 2014 On October 13, 2014
$1,000 To Al Franken For Senate On August 16, 2016
$2,500 To Midwest Values PAC (Al Franken’s Leadership PAC) On October 13, 2011
$1,000 To Catherine Cortez Masto For Senate On October 19, 2016 (Federal Election Commission, Accessed 5/30/17)Compiled by the Republican National Committee
Kathy Griffin 'beheads' Trump in photo many call 'unacceptable,' 'tasteless'By Maria Puente
Kathy Griffin, who has never been shy about provoking people with her comedy, has really done it this time: She had herself photographed holding a mock "decapitated" head of Donald Trump.
Griffin's many critics, on the right and the left, responded with outraged tweets mentioning these sorts of sentiments: She's "pure evil!" She's a "dumb idiot!" She's "not funny!"
Now the U.S. Secret Service says it's looking into what she's calling an expression of art.
But what was the point of her photo shoot with Tyler Shields, a self-described artist photographer famous for edgy imagery? He posted a YouTube video of his shoot with Griffin, in which she declines to explain much about what they're doing or why they're doing it.
In it, Griffin, wearing a blue dress, is shown holding up a "head," streaked with what appears to be blood, of President Trump by the hair. At one point, she drops it. At another point, she jokes to Shields that they're going to have to run away to Mexico after the images go public.
"I won't give away what we're doing but Tyler and I are not afraid to do images that make noise," she says in the video clip, in which she praises Shields for making her look like she's 15. (She's 56.) "But first I'm an artist. But it's good lighting."
