“Comedienne” Kathy Griffin has really taken it on the chin — and rightly so — for her video enactment of a bloody beheading, and presenting an image of a “decapitated” President Donald Trump.
Her disgusting actions were universally slammed on both right and left, and Griffin lost one endorsement after another, and was even (belatedly) fired by CNN from her New Year’s Eve co-host role.
But although Griffin has since “apologized,” it now looks like it was all a shameless publicity stunt.
Because Thursday night it was announced Griffin has now hired lawyer Lisa Bloom — daughter of the notorious Gloria Allred — to portray her as a victim against supposed “bullying” …by the Trump family!
Yep…you read that right.
According to the joint media release Kathy Griffin is claiming she has endured “bullying from the Trump family” as a result of her graphic publicity stunt:
The release reads…
“Earlier this week, Ms. Griffin released a controversial photograph of herself posing with a faux-bloody mask of Donald Trump’s face. Ms. Griffin and Ms. Bloom will explain the true motivation behind the image, and respond to the bullying from the Trump family she has endured.”
It continued on to name the place and time of the press conference in California on Friday at 9 PM.
Just wow. So reenacting a grotesque ISIS type beheading of a husband, father, and President of the United States for financial gain, personal branding, and publicity broadcast should not be criticized…lest it be “bullying”?
The Trump family has come out to criticize Griffin for her terrible photograph, but some might bristle at the idea that Griffin has experienced “bullying” when it was she who began the furor with her own horrifically bad decisions.
The president himself tweeted that his son Barron was very disturbed to see the image on the television.
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

First lady Melania Trump released a short simple statement questioning the mental faculties of someone who would put out such a photograph.
Daughter-in-law to the president Lara Trump also criticized Griffin on Fox News, saying that it was “appalling” that she wasn’t stopped by anyone in her retinue with better judgement about the photograph.
Griffin posted an apology video earlier in the week on Twitter that has garnered over 3 million views.

Notably missing from her apology was one to President Trump and his family.
Now the same attorney who, together with her mother, represented one debunked accuser of candidate Trump after another during the campaign, will attempt to portray the vile Griffin as a “victim” of those horrible Trumps! Expect the fake media — enraged with Trump over his withdrawal from the Paris Accords — to insanely take her side in the ensuing kabuki theater.
Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.
