You have to wonder how Kathy Griffin didn’t see this coming. When she did her now infamous photoshoot with a staged decapitated, bloody head of President Trump… holding it up like she was an ISIS warrior… what did she think would happen? That the Secret Service would laugh it off? Not so much. They grilled her for over an hour this weekend over her so-called “joke.” They tracked her down and had a heart to heart with the liberal moonbat. I do believe they were making an example of her. It certainly ruined her long Fourth of July weekend. And the investigation is still open and active.
Of course, Griffin’s sharky attorney, Dmitry Gorin, piped up and stated that the comedian was merely exercising her “First Amendment rights to tell a joke.” Uh no… she was inciting violence against a sitting President. Big, big difference… HUGE. “When you look at everything in the media, all the times entertainers make videos or express themselves in other ways, you’ve never seen an entertainer, let alone a comedian, be subject to a criminal investigation,” the attorney added. Not unless they call for the commission of a crime or depict one being committed. I think Griffin needs a new lawyer, stat. Having said that, the chances of Griffin actually being charged with anything are approximately zero. This was for optics, plain and simple.
Most of us have moved on in this ever-changing, fast-paced news cycle. But Griffin will suffer from her actions for a long time, if not permanently. She had to cancel her tour and has lost most of her engagements over this. CNN basically fired her. Now this. The US Secret Service takes threats to the President very seriously and President Trump is more than fed up with the antics from the media. Griffin asked for this and got it deservedly so. I’m sure it wrecked her holiday. It sucks to be her. I guess Trump broke her as this couldn’t possibly be her fault, at ALL.
Griffin massively apologized for the shocking photo after sparking widespread outrage, saying she went “too far” and then claimed she started getting “constant death threats.” I kind of doubt that, but who knows? Her actions were a death threat as well, so no sympathy here for this cloven hooved harpy. Griffin alluded to the tensions last week surrounding the Secret Service’s investigation when she tweeted a response to an article arguing TMZ is the media’s “most potent” pro-Trump outlet, saying: “Hey … TMZ and [TMZ founder] Harvey Levin may you NEVER [be] under fed investigation like I am now.”
This washed-up has been wept during the press conference about the pictures last month, telling reporters that Trump and his aides had called on anyone employing or booking her for gigs to fire the comic immediately. “He broke me,” she said, fighting back tears, “and then I was, ‘Right, this isn’t right!’ I started to see what was happening and then there was a mob mentality… There’s a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me… I did not think that people would wanna murder me.” Talk about overly dramatic.
Yes, because she has no responsibility for any of this mess herself. The Secret Service was right to interview her… she made a death threat against President Trump. They did their job. Griffin should now just slink away – she broke herself and she needs to fix herself. But this should be a warning to others that try crap like this… it isn’t funny and the feds will come to see you over it. That’s a visit I guarantee you don’t want.
News: Kathy Griffin has been interviewed by the Secret Service, in-person, for over an hour….investigation still not closed.
