Kathy Griffin’s infamous beheaded Donald Trump photo shoot is turning into a nightmare event. After the press conference, Griffin’s past has come back to haunt her where she allegedly said that she has no problem going after President Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron Trump.
In an old interview, the popular television host Kathy Griffin said that under the Trump presidency, they [comedians] need to “absolutely go for all the absurdities.” After the recent havoc of the beheaded Trump photo shoot, which scared the youngest Trump, the statement has come as a shock for viewers.
Kathy Griffin has reportedly already planned to go after Barron Trump since last year itself. She wanted “to deliver [a] beat down” to the president and go after his 11-year-old son to get ahead in the game.
“For me, that’s Trump and all things Trump. It’s not about trying to be an equal-opportunity offender anymore because Hillary got such a beat down. It’s his turn. So 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.”
Not only this, Griffin also supported the Rosie O’Donnell’s infamous mocking of the president’s son. During the autism incident, Griffin showed her complete support for O’Donnell.
“After the beat down he gave her, she can say whatever she wants to say to that piece of s***. Oh, that’s President Piece of S***.”
The founder and host of The John Cardillo Show, Cardillo tweeted that Griffin is a “moron.” He said that she is crying misogyny. Kathy Griffin’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, is trying to defend the television host saying that the released interview happened “years ago.”
“You’re talking about something from a comedy act years ago, I think. We can have edgy comics in America. Comics can say things that are not appropriate for children. Comics can create images that are not appropriate for children… it is not the job of a comic to filter everything down to the level of an 11-year-old.”
While many are condemning Kathy Griffin’s Donald Trump beheading photo shoot, many have come forward in her support. People are openly stating that including an 11-year-old boy in the entire incident shows that there is some kind of cover-up going on. Donald Trump said that his youngest son Barron Trump panicked and screamed after seeing the photo.
“He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.”
Many are saying that they do not believe Barron Trump’s involvement in any of this and feel like the first family is exploiting him. Ken Jennings, who is known for holding the longest winning streak on Jeopardy, even mocked the political cover-up by the Trump family.
Kathy Griffin has apologized for the beheading photo shoot but looks like she is already in deep water. According to her attorney, she is getting death threats. Kathy revealed in the press conference that Donald Trump is trying to ruin her life. She added that what is happening to her has never happened in the great country before.
Lisa Bloom has said that the first family is using their power to target Kathy Griffin. Bloom is a victim’s rights attorney who is best known for representing high-profile clients, including former Fox News contributor Wendy Walsh, who accused the network’s former host Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment.
“[Trump and his family are] using their power to target her [Kathy Griffin]. As a result of the first family bullying her, she has been vilified, getting death threats, fired from multiple jobs and had multiple events canceled.”
