In May, Kathy Griffin posted a sickening photo of herself holding up a mock "decapitated" head of President Trump. While she initially apologized for the horrific photo, she has since retracted her apology.
After posting the photo, Griffin experienced vast consequences. While Griffin was scheduled to appear on CNN with Anderson Cooper on New Year's Eve, the network terminated their contract. She was fired from multiple other TV appearances as well.
Later, the celebrity was put under federal investigation by the Secret Service. At the end of June, Griffin decided that she "doesn't care anymore" about consequences and removed the apology video from her Facebook page. She said that she will continue to call President Trump a "bully" and that she feels no remorse for her actions.
In an interview with Australia's "Sunrise" last month, Griffin let all of her feelings out. She said that she is "no longer sorry" and that the situation was "blown out of proportion."
In the interview, Griffin commented on Trump supporters and how they would not let the situation go. When "Sunrise" co-host Samantha Armytage said that those who denounced the photo were both Trump supporters and critics, Griffin unleashed.
She said, "No, you're full of crap. Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing."
Now, four months after the original photo was posted, Griffin is making up excuses about why President Trump was upset about the image. While some would say that President Trump was upset because the photo was violent and untasteful, Griffin says he was upset because he viewed her as an "easy target."
In an interview, she said, “I took a picture that you or any one of your friends could make. I put it online and was under federal investigation for conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States of America. I didn’t do anything wrong. It’s insane and I truly believe if it happened to me it could happen to you.”
When asked why she thinks that her post was highlighted among the "plethora of comics trading in potentially treasonous material," Griffin didn't hesitate to answer.
She said, "Fifty-six-year-old female. I will not be convinced this was not a straight-up case of sexism and ageism. I really think Trump went for me because I was an easy target.”
Griffin said that it was hypocritical that people were upset about the photo. While others have taken an open anti-Trump stance, she thinks she is the only one that will pay for it. She concluded the interview by saying that she will "openly accuse the President of the United States of human rights violations."
What do you think? Were people really upset about the photo because they wanted to target Griffin? Or were they upset because it was vulgar and potentially treasonous?
