Kathy Griffin (re Trump): "He broke me. He broke me. He broke me."

Step 1 was going on the attack. Step 2, apologizing. Now, we're at step 3: She's the victim of bullying.
The comedian broke down in tears as she detailed the torrent of abuse she has been receiving online, and the constant death threats which she described as detailed and specific....

[She] said that her career was likely over now as a result of this incident, and that President Trump had 'broke' her, moments after she declared: 'There's a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me!'...

It was also confirmed at the press conference that the Secret Service is investigating Griffin over the image, with the median saying: 'Yeah I might get arrested today. I don't care.'
Video will autoplay after the jump:

You chose to do it.

no one held a gun to your head and forced you, you dingbat.

David Begley said...

I hope she is broken. She asked for everything (except death threats) that she has received.

And what was Gloria Allred's daughter doing there other than getting in the camera frame?

traditionalguy said...

The stupid slut claims she has feelings. So why did she assume no one else she delivers the CIA's bloody head Omerta warning to has any feelings?

rhhardin said...

The outrage is ridiculous, and the secret service is just an assertion of authority.

The people who don't care what she did don't care about her claim of victimhood either. It's a local battle of oversensitive people on both sides.

The insensitive don't care on either side.

rhhardin said...

Where is fearless girl in front of the bully.

rhhardin said...

It's all better understood in terms of a target audience rather than the feelings of the participants.

Who falls for this stuff? There's your answer.

madAsHell said...

She managed to surround herself with a bunch of fools that thought the severed head was a good idea, and then blames Trump?

I really hope her career is over.

Dixie_Sugarbaker said...

The sad thing is that there will be a significant number of people that will agree with her and believe that Trump drove her to it.

Also, when I found out Lisa Bloom is Gloria Allred's daughter, the press conference made a whole lot more sense.

readering said...

Pocahantas, low energy Jeb, Lyin' Ted. She must have known he's a bully.

Virgil Hilts said...

KG should have taken just one night off, watched Tropic Thunder and considered the sage advice of Robert Downey Jr. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6WHBO_Qc-Q

Ignorance is Bliss said...

She does not deserve death threats. She also doesn't deserve to be paid attention to.

I don't see any reason for the Secret Service to investigate this, as it does not seem to be a threat. On the other hand, if they investigate this sort of thing when done by random no-name people, then the fact that she is a (very minor) celebrity should not get her out of it.

rhhardin said...

Katrina of the Toonerville Trolley would deal with Trump handily.

Gahrie said...

C'mon people...women must never be made to feel bad about their actions!

rhhardin said...

Women don't know how to use rolling pins anymore.

You get them out of the kitchen and they're helpless fluff.

William Chadwick said...

As they say: Her tears are delicious. I always enjoy when "liberals" (and by that I mean of course "tax-happy, coercion-addicted, power-tripping State fellators") accuse other people of "bullying."

Etienne said...

My mother told me to always wear clean underwear, because you never know when you're going to the hospital or jail.

Which was to underline the importance of: NOT PERFORMING WHILE STUPID!

Limited blogger said...

Trump has restored the marketplace of ideas. Some good, some bad.

JohnAnnArbor said...

The Dilbert guy has an interesting take (he knows Kathy). His point is that neither she nor anyone around her thought it was a bad idea, even though it plainly was.

Unknown said...

If she'd really been sincere about her apology, she'd have stopped at Step 2.

As for "older white men" wanting to keep her down, I'm sure about half of her male critics are younger than she.

Nonapod said...

It's a local battle of oversensitive people on both sides.

Exactly. People who behave trollishly shouldn't act surprised when the reaction is also trollish. This whole episode has been an unwanted metal anatomy lesson about the state of mind of trolls.

exiledonmainstreet said...

Oh poor baby.

rhhardin said...

I watched part of Tropic Thunder. It was an early bail-out flick. Too stupid to finish.

traditionalguy said...

She needs lawyers. Al Qaeda plans to file suit against Griffin for blatant Cultural Appropriation. That image is copyrighted by the Religion of the Sword guys in Saudi Arabia.

JohnAnnArbor said...

But my response to her is, she broke herself.

This wasn't just predictable. It was INEVITABLE after she posted that.

William Chadwick said...

One of the advantages of living in the modern age is that the INTERNET NEVER FORGETS! I think it was Glenn Reynolds who recently posted a link to Griffin complaining during the Obama presidency, that above all else, the presidency should be respected! Beautiful.

TWW said...

The Griffin-Clinton Rationalization Tango

I'm sorry...I was wrong...I didn't mean it...I went too far...I was bullied....I was bullied by the POTUS... I am ruined...I am a victim...I am a victim of Misogyny; this wouldn't happen to a man, I did nothing wrong, I am blameless, I am a symbol, I am a twenty first century Joan of Arc.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

What?! Death threats more specific than showing the decapitated, bloody head of your hated enemy as a trophy? More specific than that?


Oh...boo f&cking hoo. Poor Kathy. Where is my tiny violin, or better yet my really tiny accordion? I want to play a sad song for poor widdle Kathy.

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

I love the lie that the severed head was just a comment on Trump's statement about blood coming out of wherever. And they are SHOCKED people thought it had to do with beheadings.

I'm guessing that explanation came from a lawyer.

rhhardin said...

Megyn Kelly has acquired the Homeric epithet "soft porn actress Megyn Kelly."

I've seen it in a couple places.

Sounds like Jake's (John Belushi) excuses in Blues Brothers Losta excuses

Inga said...

Kathy, Kathy, Kathy, when you play with fire you often get burned. What did you think would happen? You sound like Trump.

mezzrow said...

Not to repeat Scott Adams, but I might have said something like "do you really think that's a good idea?"

All it would take is a single friend to say the following:

What if somebody had done that with Obama's head, or even W's head? Plus, even Trump has loved ones, armies of minions, lots of money and is notoriously thin-skinned. I wouldn't do that if I was you. Really. Think about it. The man is President Of The United States of America. Being associated with a beheading is not a way to broaden your appeal, even if it is Trump.

It's not good to go into the history books for this kind of a stunt. Not good.


But, not a single person could see this. Not one.

James Pawlak said...

Her timing was bad. A few weeks earlier and she would have had to chose between commencement speeches from such schools a Vassar and Evergreen State.

Mike Sylwester said...

Kathy Griffin had this choice:

* Be a popular celebrity and earn a lot of money for helping CNN get high ratings for its New Years Eve show.

* Infuriate the 63 million people who voted for Donald Trump.

She single-handedly endangered CNN's ratings for its New Year's Eve show.

The same goes for any other business that pays Griffin a lot of money to help get good publicity.

Other celebrities are damaging their careers by infuriating the 63 million people who voted for Trump. When they appear on television, many people will switch to another channel. This damage to their careers will last for many years.

Darrell said...

Yeah. She's the victim here.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Ooops forgo the link. Not my fault!!!!

mockturtle said...

Another snowflake melts and fearless girl becomes whiny victim.

Inga said...

"*Infuriate the 63 million people who voted for Donald Trump."

She infuriated millions more who absolutely despise Trump.

Sebastian said...

"The outrage is ridiculous" No. Of course, the outrage, like most outrage, is phony. Nobody is "outraged" at he left anymore. We know who they are, we know what they do. After a 100 million victims of communism, what's one symbolic decapitation? But we are happy to use outrage strategically, just a little Alinskiite payback, rub it in for a bit, enjoy the spectacle even as the left wins the culture war.

Etienne said...

Deplorables, it's me, I'm Kathy
I've come home, I'm so cold
Let me in through your window


...guitar riff...

Matthew Sablan said...

Just reading some of her quotes makes me think of that moment in the movie where the invincible character feels pain for the first time in their life.

She honestly though this was a good idea and that everyone would praise her. She thought they'd have her back.

They didn't.

Leigh said...

Her tearful shock and bewilderment at the public's reaction to her stunt is an act, totally belied by the comments she made just after shooting the original "severed head" clip. She was quite proud of it and her comments show she clearly intended to, and endeavored to provoke extreme emotion with the "head clip" or whatever we want to call it. Watch her in the clip below -- it's short.

http://www.tmz.com/2017/05/30/kathy-griffin-beheads-donald-trump-photo-tyler-shields/

And her hyperventilating "the moms ganged up on me, and then this group and that group" contradicts her insistence that Trump [read: tyrant] "broke me. He broke me! He broke me!" Nope. The public "broke" her by rejecting her chosen form of "comedy." It happens all the time.

What a pathetic attempt to pivot to "Trump victim" complete with crocodile tears. Spare me.

(All that said, she's got a free-speech right to be disgusting and vulgar, as long as she doesn't call for or incite violence -- that's the test, right? -- so carry on, Kathy Griffen. Just don't cry and blame everyone else when, as you leftists are so fond of pointing out, your speech has consequences.)

Virgil Hilts said...

rhhardin said I watched part of Tropic Thunder. It was an early bail-out flick. . .
You should give it another try. I think I had the same reaction, but it gets a lot better as it goes along (the opposite of Zoolander which starts off great and then becomes awful in 2nd half).

Larry J said...

She did an incredibly stupid thing and now tries to blame the blowback on Trump. Typical airhead liberal. Nothing is ever her fault.

Known Unknown said...

Is anyone buying what she's selling?

Todd said...

the torrent of abuse she has been receiving online

Online. ONline. ONLINE!

This "torrent" of abuse is ONLINE! No one is punching her in the face. It is words. WORDS!

"I am woman, hear me roar!"

She was woman enough to hold up a severed head of the President, covered in blood. So strong. So edgy.

Apparently she is too frail to handle words, ONLINE! Where is her fainting couch or her pearls to clutch?

harrogate said...

It's kind of like how Obama went after Ted Nugent.

Oh, no, wait. No it isn't.


Maybe Trump should have invited Griffin to the WH

Yancey Ward said...

Sebastian nails it- all of the outrage is phony on both sides, but there is big difference between the two- those on the right are feigning outrage precisely because it is the sort of thing you usually get from the Left. As for the Left, does anyone really think someone like Inga, for example, didn't chuckle and nod her head the first time she saw Griffin's artwork here?

rhhardin said...

Is anyone buying what she's selling?

If she puts out a line of severed Trump-head earrings she'll make a fortune.

Trumpit said...

I appreciate what Kathy did as an important, and courageous work of modern art. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Do you know who first said that?

"The person who is widely credited with coining the saying in its current form is Margaret Wolfe Hungerford (née Hamilton), who wrote many books, often under the pseudonym of 'The Duchess'. In Molly Bawn, 1878, there's the line "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", which is the earliest citation that I can find in print."

Only a book burner, or a Nazi thug would condemn her for creating something so shockingly beautiful. Kathy was the perfect head holder because she has fiery red hair to go along with a flaming orange Trump head. Trump's is Bozo the Clown:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bozo_the_Clown

R.J. Chatt said...

If something is already defective or failing can it be broken? Is this an excuse for an impending lawsuit, accusing Trump of ruining the career of a second rate comic? Sounds like that to me. Are we to believe that KG is a massively successful comedian whose career has been suddenly ruined by one misstep? Was Ariana Grande broken after her donut episode and subsequent disinvitation to the White House? Or was Justin Bieber destroyed after his scandals? No. Even Mel Gibson wasn't broken by his anti-semitic rank nor was John Galliano. In fact, Ivanka Trump's daughter was just spotted wearing one of his dresses.

Tank said...

I'm just a girl.

Leigh said...

One more thing: remember the banished, "broken" rodeo clown? Let's all remember Claire McCaskill's outrage when the rodeo clown wore an Obama mask (after wearing masks of several other presidents in prior rodeos). McCaskill's statement:

"The state fair is funded by taxpayer dollars, and is supposed to be a place where we can all bring our families and celebrate the state that we love," she said. "But the young Missourians who witnessed this stunt learned exactly the wrong lesson about political discourse, that somehow it's ever acceptable to, in a public event, disrespect, taunt, and joke about harming the president of our great nation."

http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/12/politics/missouri-obama-rodeo/

Did Kathy Griffen ride to this rodeo entertainer's defense and weep over his destruction by the left? Sauce for the goose is never sauce for the Democrats.

gerry said...

She displayed a replica of the bloody head of the President of the United States on the web. She sent the message "We want you all to die" to everyone who voted for Trump.

She's not very bright, is she?

John said...

Has she apologized to President Trump?

John Henry

JohnAnnArbor said...

She's not capable of it, Mr. Henry. To her, Trump is subhuman, unworthy of any accommodation.

"Natural vs. Traditional Horse Breaking Methods

In the past decade there has been an emergence of new techniques to educate young horses. Because of their emphasis on how a horse learns naturally, they have been termed "natural" horse breaking methods.

Advocates of natural and traditional horse breaking methods tend to be quite passionate about their particular craft and the methods they use.

While the end goal is the same, ie. a tractable riding or driving horse, the pathway to this goal is quite different in these two approaches."

Griffith did not say which method was employed on her.

Maybe add a Sarah Jessica Parker joke.

Ken B said...

Now that's funny.

FullMoon said...

Pretty sure every celebrity receives death threats. Bet Althouse has got some.
She thought she was cool. It was not intended to be comedic, it was supposed to be edgy.

Now, she can go on OKCupit, message twenty five year old men, and be a cock holster.

She can charge fifty bucks for a novelty fuck.

Mike Sylwester said...

Maybe Kathy Griffin is going through menopause. She is acting irrationally.

Bullshit. She did it because she thought that those millions would have loved the hatred.

The secret of comedy is timing. Here's a case in point. If she had had this press conference a few weeks ago, and complained the Trump's kid was bullying her, it wouldn't have been funny. But now it's hilarious.

Dave from Minnesota said...

File this under "only the most liberal lefty towns and schools are hotbeds of KKK style racism".

There are efforts in Madison Wisconsin to change the name of James Madison Memorial High school because the few black kids that are there say the place is very racist and they partially blame the name of the school.

Hari said...

Translation: Anyone who doesn't employ Kathy Griffin is intimidated by Trump. She is now free to go after CNN, and argue that if they don't hire her back, they are "colluding" with Trump in his efforts to silence criticism. Maybe (wishful thinking) some other network will show how brave they are by hiring her.

FullMoon said...

Megan Fox opines:

"The other victims are all of you. You Deplorables out there who support your president. Griffin wasn't just holding up Trump's head, she was holding up yours and mine. She exposed the truth of who the Left are and what they want in one photo. If you think they don't want this to end in bloody violence with them standing victorious and smeared in our blood, you're fooling yourself. Just visit Berkeley when some conservative is slated to speak and wear a #MAGA hat. If you make it out unbloodied it will be a miracle."

Yep. She has realized that she is not part of the elite. They only let her hang around because she is a useful idiot.

You're both right. She did it because everyone she knows hates Trump, so this will make her popular in a downturn in her career.
But the left hates it, just like the right hates it when someone does something stupid. Even Crazy Al Franken flip flopped and will now not appear with her.

NorthOfTheOneOhOne said...

[She] said that her career was likely over now as a result of this incident, and that President Trump had 'broke' her

She was broken long before Trump came on the scene.

Roy Jacobsen said...

Hang on a sec... What exactly did Trump do in response to her pathetic attempt to appear "edgy?" How did he "break" her?

I find it hard to muster up much sympathy for people who pull self-evidently stupid stunts.

Some CNN executive plans and manages the New Year's Eve show. Probably he has done so for many years, and he likes Kathy Griffin and so made her a regular on the show.

This CNN executive's annual bonus is determined to a significant extent by the ratings he gets for the New Year's Eve show.

Many other TV channels broadcast shows on New Year's Eve. Anyone who does not want to watch Kathy Griffin can simply switch to another channel.

Griffin's insult to the US President -- who received 63 million votes -- was going to severely reduce this CNN executive's annual bonus. As much as might have liked Griffin personally, he fired her immediately.

Note the pause to summon emotion.

Nonapod said...

There's possibly the makings of a new meme in all this. There's the general concepts of crossing lines, going too far, ect. Perhaps a Griffon Event Horizon could be defined? It would be a point at which your assumed cohort no longer is able to openly support/condone you, and instead must roundly criticize or even denounce you. And what's more, beyond the G.E.H. you are no longer helping your cause in the eyes of the public, but damaging it.

Quaestor said...

Inga wrote: She infuriated millions more who absolutely despise Trump.

Inga and those who "think" as she does were infuriated because the notorious stunt revealed the left more clearly than any other stunt pulled thus far. The decisive middle, the Great Unaffiliated, saw naked, cold-bloodedly murderous malice expressed in that video. Nothing Trump as said or done since January has done more to assure his re-election more than Kathy Griffin and the bloody head. Ergo, Inga is infuriated.

zipity said...


FFS, they ruined the life and career of a RODEO CLOWN who committed the mortal sin of simply wearing an Obama mask....

They would have literally crucified any D list conservative who was photographed holding up a fake bloody Obama severed head. Literally would have crucified him....

The Daily Cardinal quotes one of the snow flakes:

The City of Madison is named after James Madison as well. Berry said although changing the city name is not a priority right now, it’s something she would like to work on in the future.

“I just want to do one step at a time but ultimately I don’t want any of these people representing me or where I live,” Berry said.

Wait until they out that Rev MLK Jr was:

-A Bible thumper who didn't believe in "the constitutional separation of church and state"
-Was an anti-choice extremist
-Opposed gender equity
-Was homophobic
-Was transphobic
-Based on his statement about South Vietnam, may have been anti-Asian racist

MayBee said...

Lisa Bloom was part of a ruse where a woman was accusing candidate Trump of statutory rape. She planned a press conference for the woman who was making the accusation.

Did that *break* Trump? Would you rather be accused of raping a 13 year old, or criticized for holding a fake severed head?

exiledonmainstreet said...

Well, Dave, it's true that Madison, WI really doesn't reflect the values of one of America's founding fathers.

I'm thinking "New Stalingrad" might be more apt.

Where is Kathy's apology to Trump and his family?

Kathy is so blinded by her hatred, she's probably wishes she could actually saw off Trump's head.

She might want to STFU and seek professional help for her mental instability. Stephen Colbert should drive her.

What a drama queen! Her career is not over. She did what most in the Entertainment industry wanted to do.

To keep the rubes happy, she'll be "punished" for a while, but then will probably be rewarded later. CF: Polanksi or Hollywood Communists

OTOH, if she'd done this to Clinton or Obama her career would REALLY be over.

This is the left. It will always be our fault when they attack us. They are always blameless. Inga's disingenuousness is as obvious as it is instructive.

They are just as deranged as all of the socialists/marxists that came before them. This is the same movement that has killed over a hundred million people in recent history. There is no difference between the way the brown shirts or the red guard acted to gain power and the way they are acting now to gain power.

No diference.

It is not isolated.

There are dozens of examples.

The left only cares when they think it will make it harder for them to take power.

Boo fucking hoo on the death threats after you performed one yourself. Besides which, waving your death threats around like it makes you a special victim is bullshit. If you've ever expressed any opinion on the internet you've gotten death threats. I've gotten death threats over perfectly reasonable comments on topics ranging from the Anaheim Ducks to Martha Stewart to Yoda.

You know what all the leftists who run to the press to pitifully cry about death threats have in common? They're all still alive, every one.

When was the last time someone got death threats and actually was killed? (For these purposes, we will have to eliminate one certain category, which includes Charlie Hebdo, Theo van Gogh, etc. I'll take that category of threat seriously.)

traditionalguy said...

Interestingly, the Beheading Trump joke never made a story in the Atlanta papers...until she pleaded again how bad a white man is oppressing a poor, innocent girl and that spin story ran in the back.

And suddenly Ossoff is withering away.

Nobody around her thought it would be a bad idea because they were all leftists and they would do this if they could. There are thousands of leftists on twitter and facebook right now justifying what she did.

She will not be unemployed long.

Kathy is a no talent attention whore who is famous for ... being a celebrity.

She has never been funny or clever. Her comedy has been sad, almost desperate. This recent episode is the cherry on top of her curdled sundae.

What is she crying for? She will be in exile for 6 months and then back in the limelight. Attention whores get attention, especially when they are leftists.

Inga, I suspect you are only mad because she shows the disgusting underbelly of the modern left.

"Trumpit is at least a truthful lefty. They love assassination porn. It is "shockingly beautiful" to them"

TR, FDR, Truman, JFK, Wallace, & Reagan were victims of assassination attempts.

Every assassin was a left-winger.

Snark said...

"More importantly, jas she apologized to Barron Trump? "

I watched the extended 30 minute press conference on YouTube and at one point a reporter asked what she would like to say to Melania and Barron. After an awkward pause she just said she didn't think she had anything to say to them.

Quaestor said...

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.

What a hypocrite she is, but that's to be expected from Kathy Griffin or anybody on the left. Never trust them. Never believe them. Never turn your back. Keep your smoke wagon loaded and freshly cleaned. They want your freedom and they play for blood. The only solution is gun control.

Jay Vogt said...

This whole episode is so blatantly and transparently choreographed. It's embarrassing how she's got everyone dancing to her tune.

. . . . . .well payed - I guess.

Snark said...

I find the "he broke me" as well as the extended discussion in that same theme of presidental misuse of power in going after her on Twitter in the full press conference ironic. I think had things gone over as she expected she would have been disappointed and surprised not to get a personal Twitter reaction from Trump.

Dave from Minnesota said...

Jay, my take is that she wanted the right to be outraged. That would give her tons and tons of free publicity and make her a hero to the left. That is why when this first became public, I though everyone should just ignore her.

But it was just a bit too over the top. Implying that you want to murder and decapitate the President, and then doing visuals of it, may have been a bit too much.

Rene Saunce said...

Poor Kathy. It's Trump's fault. Got it. He made her do it. Got that, you deplorables?
Actually, it's the leftwing D-hack media's fault for their daily dose of fake news Russian hacked the election hysteria.

"Step 1 was going on the attack. Step 2, apologizing. Now, we're at step 3: She's the victim of bullying."

If you skip Step 2, you have the Trump playbook - Attack, and then feel sorry for yourself when people push back.

Another leftist justifying violence against political enemies. It is always that persons fault when a leftist threatens or attacks them.

rcocean said...

Great find Quaestor.

"So, of course, Griffin supported Rosie O’Donnell when she tweeted a video asking if Barron Trump, 10-year-old son of Donald and Melania, was on the autism spectrum. “After the beat down he gave her, she can say whatever she wants to say to that piece of shit,” Griffin said before correcting herself. “Oh, that’s President Piece of Shit.”

What a vulgar, unfunny bitch/clown. Knowing her previous statements, makes her hypocritical crying even funnier. If can't take it, don't dish it out.

Ron Winkleheimer said...

She thought they'd have her back.

Yeah, that's the major problem from Griffin's point of view. She hoped Trump would respond. It's no good if Trump doesn't respond. As for death threats, that's a badge of honor.

The problem is that a lot of people on the left condemned her, because she makes them look bad to normal people. So the current move is an attempt to rally the people on the left back to her side because "Trump bad."

Won't work. She's toast.

James K said...

Because if not she's crying about being treated in the same way she thought was funny and/or career enhancing to do to Trump.

Bay Area Guy said...

This is a classic tactic that feminists use. They throw a first punch -- often a sucker punch. Boom. It stings for a moment, catches you offguard. You land a return punch, Boom, it lands, she starts crying and declares victim status.

Just apologize for your sick joke to the Trump family, and then just shut the fuck up.

Jim at said...

"She did it because she thought that those millions would have loved the hatred."

Oh, they do love it. Make no mistake.
They're simply mad because it makes them ALL look bad.

Their outrage is as phony as a three-dollar bill. Just wait and see how the left responds to the next act by one of their own. Kathy Griffin who?

Johnathan Birks said...

"My career is over."

What career?

Static Ping said...

So Kathy is getting death threats after she published a death threat. And she is surprised by this. I am grasping that she does not understand how this works. If there was ever an appropriate time for a death threat against her it would be after she has made a death threat, even in "jest," against the sitting President of the United States and, by extension, all of his supporters.

Don't want none, don't make none.

Bob Ellison said...

Trump should invite her to an appropriately unaffiliated venue for a Bloody Mary Summit.

That might not work. She probably doesn't work in the morning, and he doesn't drink.

No return punch needed. The feminist cries "abuse" because the hand she sucker-punched you with now hurts.

If Trump was the Hitleresque monster they all think he is, not only would she have never dared post the bloody beheading picture in the first place, she sure as darned tootin' wouldn't be standing there in public blaming him for breaking her.

Leigh said...

Going O/T just a little ...
@Mike Sylwester (on your remark that KG may be going through menopause, hence the irrational behavior), you sound positively like a feminist, woman-championing Democrat! And, oh, the empathy you show for women re their "reproductive health" and frequent fragile emotional states. During the birth-control-mandate debate, Democratic Senator Tom Harkin said many women are completely incapacitated -- totally debilitated -- during menstruation.

It's impossible not to love Democrats. There's so much caring!

* Equality for women
* Gender is a social construct
* Women are totally equal to men
* Women never lie about rape
* Women lose elections because of misogyny

... all of these things are true unless, Democrats are quick to point out, women are menstruating or menopausing. During those difficult times, menstruation and menopause are not social constructs at all. During those times, women are often total loons and require the fierce protection of self-identifying males.

Wait and see.

Look I'm an old white guy. And I'm never going to watch a Kathy Griffin performance/show or appearance after she pulled that tasteless dumb stunt.

OTOH I've never heard of or watched Kathy Griffin before, so she hasn't lost much when I abstain from ever watching her in the future.

But Ms. Griffin, actions have consequences, and you are just beginning to feel some very well deserved pain. My TS chit account is all used up, so I don't have any particular sympathy for you. You did it; suck it up and own it. I'm certain that there's a very tiny audience somewhere that would enjoy seeing that again.

What a disgusting excuse for a human being.

She does something that doesn't work out the way she thought it would, she cops an insincere apology but still, she did what she could to paper it over. Then, rather than leave it lie for a while and see if it blows over, which it might, she lawyers up and doubles down (mixed metaphor alert!!) on exactly the kind of thing that started it.

Great publicity for Bloom, but for the life of me I don't see why Griffin did it. My guess is Bloom egged her into it and she was stupid enough to fall for it, but that's just a guess.

"He broke me." Give me a break, being on bad terms with Trump is like having your Hollywood union card.

I've had everybody turn on me.

That's what's really bothering her. The people she thought were drinking from the same pitcher of Kool-aid criticized her.

She also mentioned that one of her best friends, the late Joan Rivers, was also incredibly close to President Trump.

'I think she got a kick out of him, but I don’t think she knew this side of him,' said Griffin.


I too like to voice opinions for people who are unable to confirm or deny what I attribute to them. I don't know Griffin and didn't know Rivers, but if I had to guess (from what each let the public see about them) which of the two was able to read other people most accurately, it would be Rivers.

Not to repeat Scott Adams, but I might have said something like "do you really think that's a good idea?"

Really. Think about it. The man is President Of The United States of America. Being associated with a beheading is not a way to broaden your appeal, even if it is Trump.

It's not good to go into the history books for this kind of a stunt. Not good.

But, not a single person could see this. Not one.

I thought I was re-reading a fine administered by OSHA, to the company I work for. A fine for a work place accident, that possibly could have taken a life, but fortunately did not. Not even an overnight hospital stay. The 6 figure fine was issued, and cited in the fine, for the reason that five employees, over successive days never questioned the procedures being used were dangerous and counter to company procedures in placed and trained on at least annually.
On to topic two, Leftist like Griffin, claim to be great readers of the public attitude, yet avoid like the plaque, real people, living real lives. No one lives in a more insular world than Griffin and her peers

Four months later, she'll be on the cover of People magazine, carefully airbrushed and smiling, and the headline will read: "KATHY GRIFFIN reveals how she suffered and bounced back to become bigger than ever after the Trumpopalypse!"

Fritz said...

From Ace:

I didn't particularly want Kathy Griffin fired -- but it was necessary.

I actually envy her lack of inhibition and total feeling of freedom. She felt she could do whatever she wanted, so long as it broke no laws.

I'd like to feel that way. But I can't.

I can't feel that way, because I know the progressive mob is always scalp-hunting, and that I am not free to say or think as I might like.

They rule part of my brain -- my very fear of them limits my thoughts, creates inhibitions and limitations in me which I did not choose for myself, but were forced upon me from without.

I have become, partly, a recruit in the Social Justice Warrior army. Their dicta, their demands, their fury is always alive inside of me.

I know to fear them. And so I must self-censor.

My fear of their power makes part of my own brain their appointed warden for the rest of my head.

So a big part of my anger is in seeing Kathy Griffin act as a totally free spirit and free agent, able to do what she likes just because she thinks it's funny, or "edgy," or whatever.

It makes me angry to see her living a life where she can just do something without fearing the consequences -- but I can't.

And neither can you.

My hatred of Kathy Griffin isn't a hatred of her -- it's a hatred of the vicious caste-based system which says she has more rights than Sean Hannity, and more rights than you, and more rights than me.

If keeping some of my diminished amount of freedom means that I have to thuggishly begin taking it from others -- so be it.

I didn't make the rules.

I'm just trying to survive them.

I don't want her to have less freedom -- but the only way to make sure I keep the limited, constantly-eroded freedom I currently have is to insist that I am not a serf, and I will not be held to different laws than the Lords.

As I cannot accept that -- and as I will not accept that -- I must insist she pay the same cost I would be expected to pay if I were to do what she did.

Otherwise, I'm saying Sir/Ma'am to the Ruling Caste, and confirming that I accept my lower position.

Hillary Clinton called half of the country "The Deplorables."

It's really not so different from the lowest caste in India -- the "Untouchables," is it?

bagoh20 said...

Who cares about a war between gingers when they have no souls.

It strikes me that Griffin's career is comprised of mostly bullying people on stage, either celebrity individuals or groups of people she dislikes. The severed head was an attempt to bully a bigger bully. As we all learn, a bully can never take being bullied themselves. In the pack of ginger bullies, she punched up and the alpha male of the pack slapped her down to remind her of her d-list status.

Earnest Prole said...

I'm shocked Kathy Griffin is playing the victim. It's not like she hasn't been through this before; through the years she's said enough things about enough people that if she turned up missing there would be several thousand suspects, and through it all I don't believe she's ever apologized. More than once she's stared down some pretty persistent social-justice warriors. The recipe is either don't apologize or apologize once and shut up.

Big Mike said...

@Althouse, please explain. What is it about lefty women that they can't bring themselves to truly accept responsibility when things go wrong. Clinton campaigned two or three days a week and put more effort into winning unwinnable states than shoring up her "blue wall" but the election results aren't really her fault. Now Griffin.

roesch/voltaire said...

Jokes about killing Obama from Nugent or assassinating Harry Reid are okay because that's an example of "we just talking about it" like the characters in Glengarry Glen Ross, as opposed to an Kathy Griffin who converts the talk into an image that burns on our retinas.

CStanley said...

At the link:
Her lawyer Lisa Bloom also suggested during the press conference that despite reports, Barron was likely not that upset after seeing the image of Griffin with the decapitated head by stating the child was 'allegedly' traumatized.
'We don't know that. You're assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false,' said Bloom.


As I started watching I was questioning why an attorney would be doing this, and thinking it was risky for her to put her client (especially this client) out there doing this stream of consciousness. And then I heard some of the comments the attorney made, as above, and thought, ok, now it makes sense, the attorney is batshit crazy too. Unfortunately there's just enough TDS in the country that we may have reached a point where someone can produce violent imagery involving the president, and then mock his 11 year old child for possibly being upset by it, and still have a not insignificant number of people who will agree that the perpetrators of this nonsense are the victims.

Bit of a power imbalance between an obscure rodeo clown and the propaganda arm of the DNC, wouldn't you say? Obama could have been magnanimous and said "Gee, I don't think a man should lose his job just because he made fun of me. After all, he wasn't being violent or threatening."

He didn't.

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

Jim S.,

That's right. Everyone seemed to be fantasizing about assassinating Dubya. Nicholson Baker wrote an entire novel about it. Of course, they fantasized about the assassination of Obama, too, but then they weren't the killers; it was evil right-wing white supremacists. Now we're back to first-person shooter (or beheader) mode, as it were.

If there's a parallel phenomenon on the right, it must be very, very fringe, because I've never run across it, and I read a great deal, across the ideological spectrum. Certainly it hasn't made the NYT best seller's list, as Baker's did.

But can we talk eliminationist rhetoric here? Griffin, who had the heebie-jeebies over Sarah Palin's "crosshairs," says now (via her lawyer) that she had no idea that holding up Trump's blood-covered, severed head might be construed as a threat. Add this to her remarks on Barron -- did anyone go after Sasha or Malia in this way, even when they were merrily twerking in Mexico? -- and I can only conclude that the lady's a psychopath, TDS edition.

Fen said...

Inga "she infuriated millions who despise Trump"

But for a different reason - your side is pissed because she took the wind out of your sails, making Trump a sympathetic character. Humanizing him. And now you Trump bashers are back on your heels.

What world is that? A world in which a comedian knows her rights but a rodeo clown doesn't?

Sounds like the world that always was, but of course Trump-Clones, just like Trump himself, never take responsibility for a thing. It's always the other side's fault.

Also, I caught your snide little sniffle there at not feeling culturally relevant in media. ("DNC propaganda arm.") Maybe try doing a better job of relating to humanity and other people and then today's media might work for you, too.

Until then, I suppose I should mourn with you that the coalition of narcissists, sociopaths and autistics making up the right-wing in America don't understand humor or satire, and never did. But that would sadden me more than any American has any right to be made to feel.

Satire will live on. Presidents have never been guillotined in America the way blacks have been lynched by noose, and I guess that's just the way it's going to be. Free speech lives. The judiciary lives. And Trump's approval rating is still below 40%. But he can get you all to rage on about all the unimportant issues: Resentment and white-people identity politics. Hey, it's a rough life for your crowd. Apparently even the scientists are against you, or not on your side. I forget. So hard to keep up with all the wrongs you feel you've been through. Nobody knows those troubles you've seen. Nobody knows the sorrows.
