Kathy Griffin has been visited by the Secret Service in the past for making death threats against President Donald Trump, but that didn’t stop her from making new threats Tuesday night. The D-list celebrity advocated for stabbing the president with “an air-filled syringe.” When media outlets asked if she just threatened Trump’s life, she responded: “I sure did, f*cker!” Well, that’s when it went all wrong for poor Kathy in ways she never saw coming. You’ll love this.
Kathy Griffin had another epic meltdown on Tuesday night as she threatened the duly elected president of the United States with an air embolism via a syringe which would cause instant death. What makes her threat even a bigger deal is that she issued it on Twitter which is under fire for censoring President Trump’s tweets while allowing the Democrats to spew insane nonsense.
It all started after CNN’s Jim Acosta posted: “Trump at diabetes event at WH: ‘I don’t use insulin. Should I be?”‘
That tweet sparked Griffin’s evil mind.
“Syringe with nothing but air inside it would do the trick,” the beleaguered comedian tweeted. “F*CK TRUMP.”

Injecting air via a syringe into the bloodstream can be fatal, and this was obviously Kathy Griffin’s intent. Washington Examiner confirmed that she was actually threatening the life of the Commander in Chief.
“In response to a Washington Examiner tweet for this report, which noted that stabbing someone with a syringe filled with air could be fatal, Griffin said she ‘sure did’ advocate for the president to be stabbed with one such device,” Washington Examiner reports.
Griffin’s actual response was: “I sure did, f*cker!”

Washington Examiner reached out to Secret Service about Griffin’s tweets and asked Twitter if she breached the platform’s violent threats policy. A representative said the company will “look into” the tweets.
Griffin responded: “Go f*ck yourself. Do you wanna tussle with me, you f*cking amateur?”
However, that was only the beginning of Kathy’s problems.
Donald Trump Jr. responded to Griffin’s remarks early on Wednesday morning by taking a shot at both her and Twitter, which continued to demonstrate bias against the president on its platform via its actions in fact-checking something the president said while ignoring numerous false claims from Democrat Joe Biden.
“I don’t think past their prime comedians who tweet stupid things should be banned on here, but next time [Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey] bans a conservative for saying something not PC, just remember they have no problem with Dems making death threats against [President Trump] on their platform,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

What Griffin doesn’t realize is she has just opened up a can of worms that may be the final straw in her career. First, there are tens of thousands on Twitter calling for the Secret Service to take action against Griffin. Not just a visit, but arrest her as this isn’t the first time she has threatened Trump.
“SICK: Kathy Griffin just advocated for injecting President Trump with a syringe full of air—which can be fatal Why do Democrats get away with ‘joking’ about killing the president? Hey @SecretService, you should be looking into this. RT so they can’t ignore!” tweeted Turning Point USA’s, Charle Kirk.

Secondly, Griffin’s post makes Twitter censoring Trump rather difficult. Either they ban her from the platform, or they run the risk of verifying to all Americans that they have a certain set of rules for the president and conservative voices, and the Democrats and liberals can say whatever they want.
Physically threatening the president of the United States is a federal offense. Physical threats also constitute a violation of Twitter’s terms of service that can result in permanently getting kicked off the platform.
“We will immediately and permanently suspend any account found to be posting violent threats,” the social media giant says on its official site.
Meanwhile, President Trump is making a few threats of his own. He is putting Twitter on notice that he will use his presidential powers if they continue to censor him.
“Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow!” he tweeted.

Twitter says in its terms of service that “you may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people. We also prohibit the glorification of violence.”
The company said it defines violent threats as “statements of an intent to kill or inflict serious physical harm on a specific person or group of people.” Griffin’s account still appeared active as of early Wednesday.
Federal law states that individuals who physically threaten the president can face up to five years in prison.
How many times does a person have to threaten the president before action is taken? Americans are outraged and knocking down the Secret Service’s cyber door over Kathy Griffin.
“Kathy Griffin, always trying to stay relevant. If anyone else threatened the President, they would be in prison. @SecretService why does she continue to get a pass?” tweeted Twitter user “Deb.”

Griffin is still upset CNN fired her after she did her bloody Trump head stunt. Her career at the time was already on life-support. She never got over it.
The leftwing nutjob said earlier this year that after her stunt she had to beg for work because no one wanted to be associated with her.
“I straight up was just begging for five lines on something that would be seen by people that had nothing to do with Trump – nothing that was controversial,” Griffin told USA Today. “I’m certainly learning how to do more things, as they say ‘in house,’ and (it’s) one of the things that I became proactive about after the Trump scandal because it’s kind of like Hollywood feels like I have something that they’re going to catch… People don’t want to get Kathy Griffin-ed.”
Kathy Griffin killed whatever dwindling career shew had left when she pulled the bloody head stunt, and two years later she is just realizing it. Well, the anger and outbursts directed at Trump might just be the end of her liberty sooner than she thinks.
