Kathy Griffin pulls a "Hillary"

It's all the fault of "white guys" and Trump's family, according to a tearful, snot-dripping Kathy Griffin. The so-called comedian, who stoically held a replica of President Trump's severed, bloody head, spoke at a news conference with her lawyers about how she's the victim in all this.

Telling reporters that her "career" is over she does a "Hillary" and blames the Trump family for systematically "mobilizing their armies" against her.

From where does she get that information?

When she refers to "armies," perhaps she means Trump supporters. People who either want Trump to be their president, or those who respect the office of president and were outraged at Griffin's ISIS-like graphic, certain to disturb the Trump family, especially Barron, and those of us who find the likeness of a severed head of our president repugnant.

"I'm going to be honest," she cried through anticipated tears. "He broke me, he broke me, he broke me."

No, Griffin. All Trump did was tweet his outrage. You broke you and there is nobody else to blame. What are you doing, taking Hillary Clinton classes?

Like a child who breaks a window and blames it on "the other kid," Griffin shows no ability for introspection.

Sure, she has every right to do what she did and say what she will--but even freedom of speech has consequences, just not legal consequences.

She was fired from CNN because the network didn't want to suffer from her behavior and has the right to terminate her employment. When she was asked if she'd heard from Anderson Cooper, her New Year's Eve co-host for the past ten years, she shook her head 'no,' fighting back tears.

But instead of realizing her role in the outcome of the situation, she said, "It's hurtful to me. There's a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me and I'm just here to say that it's wrong."

No, those old white guys don't give a crap if she's silenced--they just don't want her working for them, especially now that she's taken a racist stance.

I'm sick of white people attacking "old white men" because of their own identity-guilt problem. There is nothing wrong with being an old white guy, or white anyone. Just as there's nothing wrong with being non-white, young or old, man or woman.

And speaking about giving a crap,  the Squatty Potty Company dumped Griffin, no pun intended. I wasn't aware she was involved with them, but it's run by an old white guy, I understand.

Griffin, 56, says she "feel[s] horrible" that some people took the photo as a real threat of violence. She assures her fan that she plans to continue making fun of the president as is her First Amendment right to do, which nobody disagrees. 

"I made a horrible, horrible call," she said. "Trust me, if I could redo the whole thing I'd have a blow up doll and no ketchup."

Freaking hilarious, Kathy!

She confirmed that she has been contacted by the Secret Service, an agency whose mission is to protect the president at all costs. They are merely following up on a possible threat from the idiot, to ensure that no physical harm was intended, as is their job. Griffin worries she might be arrested, but that's just her idiotic thinking kicking in again.

The outcry against her grows and at least four venues announced that they have canceled her performances. The Community Arts Theater in Williamsport, PA, posted on its website the show has been dropped "due to the recent controversy surrounding Kathy Griffin and the concern for the safety and security of our patrons and staff."

Sounds as if they were planning to run a Mohammed Cartoon Festival as an opener for her, because nobody cares enough about Griffin to create a riot.
