Kathy Griffin No Longer Sorry Over Decapitated Trump Photo
She’s the victim….
Kathy Griffin appeared on Australian TV today and told the hosts she’s no longer sorry for posting a picture of her holding the decapitated head of President Donald Trump. She said:
“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody. Like, I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends, Debra Messing from ‘Will and Grace,’ tweeting against me.”
It was another opportunity for Griffin to play the victim:
“I lost everybody. I’ve been through the mill. I also, you know, didn’t lose just one night at CNN. My entire tour was canceled within 24 hours because every single theater got these death threats.”
Of course, it was all the Trump fans fault that she lost everything:
“I mean, these Trump fans are hardcore. They have like robocalls. They’re a minority, but they know how to act like a majority.”
That’s when host Samantha Armytage popped in and reminded Griffin that Chelsea Clinton and Messing are not Trump supporters. Democrats even went after her over the photo. She asked Griffin if holding the head was over the line.
Griffin told the host she’s full of crap, with a little laugh I guess to try to make it sound like she’s joking, but continued:
“Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing.”
She also claimed she spoke to Australians that have told her they’re scared to come to America.
This is the photo:
Kemberlee blogged about Griffin’s pity party press conference afterwards:
“I’m not afraid of Donald Trump. He’s a bully. I’ve dealt with old, white guys trying to keep me down my whole life, my whole career,” began Griffith, during her pity party Friday afternoon.
Griffith was fired from CNN after she posed with a bloody, decapitated likeness of President Trump’s head.
She released a short video, apologizing for “crossing the line”, and apology she reiterated during the press conference.
“A sitting president of the United States, and his grown children, and the first lady are personally — I feel, trying to ruin my life forever,” said Griffin who lamented being under investigation by the Secret Service.

How stupid would you have to be to pay to subject yourself to that…???
I hope she has to go on welfare…
This sad old comic wannabe is way beyond her use by date. She now has to generate controversy just to get some TV face time.
Is it true Kathy Griffin is just Tina Fey in a fright wig?
As if she ever was.
kathy WHO ???
only one I know had an OBIT recently.
You can always tell a liberal – nothing they do, or the consequences are ever their own fault.
She’s not sorry? Nice lie to tell herself. She’d love to have overs where she didn’t do something so stupid.
Sorry off thread but more interesting than Kathy
When the left starts fudging videos and pictures . I do not know what went on with the Charlottesville crash but the story they are telling is not correct.
Thoughts on these two still shots which I will name Brake light photo( BLP) and Headstand man photo (HMP )
HMP is clearly staged ( compare with BLP) there are too many stop signs in the background ,. The placards in the picture do not show up in BLP or BTV (black truck video) .There are green trees before the second stop sign where bricks should be .
MR Blueshirt is standing in a place that he would have been run over if the car was moving the velocity necessary for the carnage depicted . Look at the wheel track and car angle. It is a still shot either staged or shopped .
BLP Brake light photo is supposedly shot right before he plows into the crowd, At that point you should see Black truck parked just past the telephone pole , a Toyota Solara with black top and a 5” “ 10 “ Maroon van , you see a patch of black that may be the truck , nothing else, The van that we knew should there is not there ( that I see) ?? there are no gaps in the heads of protesters that would suggest that are there and obscured .Hard to Obscure a 5″ “ 10 ‘ van .
So we know that picture is taken at least 5 minutes prior to crash. And we know if that is true the Challenger had to leave to be seen on Market street in the FF video . , My guess is this photo was done at same time as HMP either earlier or another day
BLP is more real but staged .
This whole thing is so unprofessional. I believe it is a Robert Creamer dirty trick DNC George Soros funded BS operation designed to incite Anti trump insurrection
One , we are expected to believe that Red shoes man and Headstand man could be hit hard enough to fly thru the air and are able to be up and walking with in seconds HSM khaki shorts lands on right within 3 seconds gets up walks out of picture Red shoes has hoisted himself to the hood of the tundra and cad can be seed jumping off when the car is reversed ,He then jumps down about 43 or 4 ft and later in the Ford Fischer live feed is hobbling off to be prominently displayed in media with a cast .
Lok how few are rolling in pain or holding arms or legs ..Most go like dutiful little stunt men to curb awaiting instructions
What should be apparent , you have four or five videos , other than the car backing up and dumb dumb stunt guycan’t get out of the way , you do not see the the Challenger actually contact anyone going forward .Notice how the videos seem to start where the last one left off
crowds on demand ran ads in Philly and Charlotte NC for extra Charlottesville is about equidistant from Charlotteville

She was never sorry to begin with, she was only sorry that she was the subject of such a backlash.
Typical liberal. Can’t even stand behind her actions.
You are a typical bot
She does look like a victim . . .
. . . of some serious cosmetic surgery malpractice.
I wonder if her plastic surgeon ever suggested decapitation.
She just doesn’t get it. She committed comic suicide. Nobody wants anything to do with her, her career is over.
She’s the White version of the crazy Black congresswoman
Which crazy black congresswoman?
We all knew she was never sorry.
I actually have an idea. She should run for office!
What the heck, she should run for POTUS as a Democrat. Her infamous photo would be her campaign poster; she’s even wearing blue in it already.
I’m even willing to register as a Democrat to vote for her in the primaries.
She’s right about one thing, and only one thing: there’s no legitimate reason for the Secret Service to have involved itself, and its publicly doing so is likely to have a chilling effect on clearly protected speech, which violates the constitution.
Other than that, she brought everything on herself. She grossly underestimated the price she’d have to pay for her unfunny little joke; that’s her problem, not anyone else’s.
Trump supporters, together with those who just aren’t amused by such a joke, are a majority; they don’t need robocalls to spread their legitimate anger.
So indicating through a cheap comedy trick, that made every TV network in the world, that you would like to see the sitting president beheaded is not something the Secret Service should be worried about? Should they wait until there is an attack on POTUS and then make that judgment? Have you ever heard of the word “Precedent”? You know where the courts or any governing body tries to set up a prior judgment to prevent future problems? Can’t you see where this might be one of those? Showing a dung Mary or a piss Christ is ok because it does not advocate violence but just stupidity. Her “Innocent” act advocated violence and to the unhinged viewers in TV land that could easily be inciting words/actions.
That’s right, indicating that you would like to see the sitting president beheaded is protected speech, and the government, including the Secret Service, is absolutely prohibited from doing anything that would have a chilling effect on it. It was crystal clear that she had no intention of personally beheading the president, so there was nothing to investigate. The only purpose of the investigation was to punish her, and to dissuade others from expressing similar opinions, and that is blatantly illegal.
Um, no, that’s not what precedent means.
Irrelevant, because advocating violence is just as protected as any other advocacy.
No, it couldn’t. Incitement has a very narrow definition. It must be both subjectively calculated and objectively likely to temporarily deprive its audience of their free will, turning them into robots who immediately act on it without first thinking it through themselves. That was clearly not the case here.
Even if they were worried about some unhinged viewer doing something, it was literally impossible for any investigation of her to yield information about such a person.
Did it advocate violence? That was not my reaction when I first saw it. It just seemed like an unfunny joke.
If that was incitement then perhaps Ted Nugent should have been locked up for thing he said and did during Obama’s terms.
I am not looking for an argument about Nugent. I think he is a schm–k, but I didn’t think he actually was calling for the killing of Obama and Clinton. Of course, he got invited to the White House.
Personally, it would be best if both were ignored. Neither has much talent.
She is indeed…..
She is really back to where she was when she pulled the trick with the severed head. She wants American’s to panic over the trump Presidency and notice more than protest that she should be forgiven she goes right back to claiming he is committing atrocities without naming them. The attempt is to have us seize on the word atrocities like we were are supposed to seize on the picture and go into a state of unthinking rage which is the only way they can win the argument.
She is just as ugly as the head she was holding. Please no more pictures of her. She is the woman men make bag over her head jokes about.
Never trust anyone when the head they think with is narrower than the neck they swallow with.
Its all about staying in the news and staying relevant. Nothing more. Nothing less.
She was never sorry to begin with.
Try this little experiment, Kathy: Take a noose, hang it around the neck of the likeness of Obama, and see how funny that is. See how many yuks you get for that knee-slapper. See how many laudatory comments you get for “speaking truth to power.”
What? You wouldn’t dare do that, because people would think that outrageous? Well, that wouldn’t stop you, would it? Free speech and all that.
Maybe, just maybe, if you understand why people would take offense at an Obama effigy being hung, you might likewise be able to understand why people would take offense at your sick little Trump faux-decapitation. Of course, this presupposes that you possess the ability to empathize, and that might well be beyond your capabilities.
This idiot is stealing hillary clinton’s ‘a bad penny always turns up’ act.
The act is funny, though neither clinton or griffin is.
When is hillary clinton going to be indicted?
She really is ugly and hateful, especially with her own words on how she’ll go after an 11 year old.
I also wish you’d just use something like a really bad pumpkin carving instead of her picture. Or a pile of dog sh t.
“… I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.”
Hateful, nasty, unhappy woman!
Someone should unscrew her head and shit down her neck. What a skank.
She has a strong gay following and they are predominantly anti Trump, anti Republican, anti conservative and the abuse heaped upon her (eh, rightfully, so what) resonates with them. Generally. Those in her audience. Not your cup of tea, but I expect her to incorporate this entire episode into her act to tremendous applause. Her entire career is based on controversy. She’s nothing without it. Because of this I do not think what she did was comedian suicide.
Remember when Richard Pryor mocked his own cocaine-related fireball incident that sent him to the burn unit? “I heard the jokes you MFers were telling about me. What is this?” Lights a stick match and bounces it across the front of his chest. “It’s Richard Pryor running down the street.”
Now that s*** is just funny.
And Paul Rubens as Peewee Herman returned to MTV stage after his lewd theater incident, “Say, heard any good jokes lately? That’s so funny I forgot to laugh”
The audience cracked up laughing.
Even Michael Richards is stil around following the Laugh Factory incident. Wikipedia.
Whether we like it or not they go on. Because they must. There is nothing else they can do.
This particular photo of Kathy Griffin reminds me of Imogene Coca.
Distasteful and hurtful as it all is, I like it.
But know who I cannot stand? Patton Oswalt, that’s who. That guy needs to just stfu. I click off everything that he’s on. Like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. They double dose you. They have him as twins!
But that following is turning away from them and their murdering insanity………
The bitch gets uglier by the minute. Beyond two baggyness and entering clock stopping range.
When you gaze at her “cartoon”, in an unfocused way, there is a
certain similarity of the severed, bloody head she displays, and her own looks, which, unfortunately for her, are also on display.
