No Wonder Al Franken’s Still Appearing With Kathy Griffin – He Once Joked About Al-Qaeda Killing Bush

No Wonder Al Franken’s Still Appearing With Kathy Griffin – He Once Joked About Al-Qaeda Killing Bush

UPDATE: CNN HAS FIRED GRIFFIN

*UPDATE* CNN has cut ties with Kathy Griffin. From USA Today:

“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” CNN spokesman Shimrit Sheetrit confirmed to USA TODAY in a statement Wednesday.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) announced on CNN this morning that he will still participate in an event with Kathy Griffin, even after she posed with the bloody head of President Donald Trump. From CNN:

Franken cited Griffin’s apology in explaining his decision.

“Kathy’s a friend and she’s a terrific comedian, but this had no business being in our public discourse,” Franken said. “And I talked to her. She has apologized — a real, fulsome apology. She’s actually begged for forgiveness, and I believe in forgiveness.”

But Minnesota GOP Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan has put pressure on Franken to cancel the event.

KARE 11 asked for a statement from Franken:

Sen. Franken thinks Kathy Griffin is a talented comedian and respects her right to free speech, but believes this image was inappropriate and not the kind of thing that should be part of our national discourse.

But do you remember this? Back in 2004, he told the sign-language interpreter for President George Bush at the GOP convention he should have signed out to al-Qaeda the best ways to sneak into the White House to kill the president.

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air blogged about it in 2008:

I can already hear the objections. Franken is a satirist! He was joking! He’s paid to make people laugh! Er, yeah … but then Franken was also a political commentator, and now he wants to serve in the US Senate, so his judgment in this is fair game. If he’s such a hater that the notion of AQ assassinating George Bush is funny, that shows just how far outside the mainstream Franken is, and how poor his judgment can be.

Does Franken really believe that joking about presidential assassinations is in good taste, ever? Because in a Barack Obama administration, I doubt that Franken’s allies will find it funny. Neither will I, or most everyone I know.

In October 2014, Jay Nordlinger at National Review listed the times Democrats joked about killing presidents or vice-presidents:

  • Even before Bush was elected president, the kill-Bush talk and imagery started. When Governor Bush was delivering his 2000 convention speech, Craig Kilborn, a CBS talk-show host, showed him on the screen with the words “SNIPERS WANTED.”
  • Six years later, Bill Maher, the comedian-pundit, was having a conversation with John Kerry. He asked the senator what he had gotten his wife for her birthday. Kerry answered that he had taken her to Vermont. Maher said, “You could have went to New Hampshire and killed two birds with one stone.” (New Hampshire is an early primary state, of course.) Kerry said, “Or I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.”
  • This is the same Kerry who joked in 1988, “Somebody told me the other day that the Secret Service has orders that if George Bush is shot, they’re to shoot Quayle.” Ha ha ha! Kill Quayle!

Don’t forget this gem. Madonna at that stupid Women’s March proclaiming her desire to blow up the White House:

Comments

Actually according to the 4th circuit court of appeals his prior statements not become his intended purpose and if he gets elected he should be censored because of them

Griffin did an apology video, which was good, but she failed to apologize directly to President Trump and his family.

Concerning Franken, all I can recall is that image of a grown man in diapers. Brain bleach isn’t working on that image.

One can find hateful and violent rhetoric from idiots on both sides of the aisle.

The difference is when it comes from the right, both conservatives and liberals condemn the morons and shun them.

However, when it comes from the left, these morons are either hired by msnbc or elected to office. ‘By any means necessary’ is dogma for the left, and that includes violence.

Nah, give em 6 weeks and she will be back at CNN with her own program and a raise.

Because, doggone it, he likes her.

Griffin is just desperate for attention. A very sick woman. She’s got a kindred spirit in Franken.

We have to work on getting this guy voted out.

Franken says he will appear with her in July at some event. Today all of her gigs have been canceled by the hosts. Franken may be on the stage alone the way things are going now for this cancer.

Let me apologize in advance for this way, way off topic post. This story is just too way out there to demonstrate what progressives believe is real progress.

The city of Berkeley, California, faces numerous problems from anarchist running wild in the streets trashing businesses and private property; homelessness and tent cities; increasing crime from thugs from within and crossing over from neighboring Oakland; and violent protestors feeling free to bloody anyone with whom they disagree.

So, what does the Berkeley city council take up as its most pressing cause du jour to solve all these problems and more? The answer should be most obvious: BAN PLASTIC STRAWS

    Don’t apologize for going ‘off topic’ – nothing is off-topic when it comes to disseminating news the corrupt American media tries to hide.

    Thank God for blogs like this, and for people like you going ‘off topic.’

And Franken once assaulted a random member of a crowd who he perceived to be invading, not his personal space, but freedom of speech zone.

    That diaper Franken is famous for once wearing was a prescient warning to the rest of us.

    We’ve got to boot this guy from the senate – along with another diaper-wearer: McConnell.

Griffin demonstrates how the liberal left actually thinks. They will be closed mouth until the MSM won’t say anything about her actions.

How many conservatives or moderates have had their careers or lives ruined by saying something minor compared to this evil, savage woman? No apologies were allowed.

This is not her first vicious attack against the President, just one that has finally gone far enough to actually scare the MSM (at lease for a few days). Her false apology is meaningless.

According to Drudge, Mike Cernovich tweet out something conflating Griffin with the “Church of Satan”. THe Church of Satan tweeted back to keep them out of it.

Seems Kathy gets no sympathy from the devil.
