Kathy Griffin Attacks Trump & His Kids On ‘The View,’ Shoots Herself In The Foot

Kathy Griffin has proven, once again, what a vulgar person she is — as if anyone needed a reminder. The comedian, who is most famous for holding a mock decapitated head of President Donald Trump, appeared on the ABC daytime talk show “The View” on Monday and laid into the president and his sons — then, it got worse.

“I’m here. I’m alive. I’m just glad to be alive,” Griffin said. “By the way, I take the apology back. F**k him,” Griffin said of the president, showing that trademark classlessness that she is known for. And, predictably, she was greeted with raucous applause for that statement from the anti-Trump audience.

Griffin went on to call President Trump’s sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, “Eddie Munster and date rape,” and she said, “Look, I’m not holding back on this family.” In defense of her attack, Griffin also said, “This president is different, and I have been through the mill and so now I’m back on the road.”

She alleged that because of the president — and not her horrid decision to hold his mock decapitated head — she had to explain to her mother that she was not a terrorist. “People thought I was in ISIS,” she said. “I had to spend two hours convincing my mother I have not been recruited by al-Qaeda! I said, ‘I don’t think they’re taking 57-year-old red-haired Irish-American comedians today,’” she added, trying to be funny.

Kathy Griffin said that she should have never apologized to the president, to begin with, and said that she regretted it. “I performed in Iraq and Afghanistan, two places Trump has never even been and can’t find on a map,” she said. “When I found out that I was really just kind of part of the Trump wood chipper … I wanted to make a statement about what a misogynist he is.”

“But, now, you’ve taken the apology back aren’t you frightened they’re going to go after you again now?” co-host Joy Behar asked her. “Why do you do that to yourself?”

“It’s important,” she said. “The First Amendment is the First Amendment for a reason. It’s the first one. And, also, I mean the thing is this guy just is different.” She said it was not her intent to “disrespect the presidency,” but she misses a time when someone “could make fun of that Monica [Lewinsky] dress all day long and nobody thought you were a terrorist.”

That’s because you were not holding a mock severed head of the president. How does she and the liberal left not see how those two things are not the same?

She said that after she shared the photo on Twitter, she “got a call the next day from the Department of Justice, and I was under a two-month federal investigation for conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States,” she said. “So, f**k him,” she added, although it was censored out, which is rather ironic since she was just talking about freedom of speech.

The appearance came days after the comedian, who is back on the entertainment scene, defended the attack on the White House press secretary by comedian Michelle Wolf at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner on Saturday.

“Ok, I have some thoughts on @michelleisawolf’s act and the reaction to it from members of the press and other DC insiders. For the record, I was in the room last night. @michelleisawolf’s set was great. She was hilarious and confident,” Griffin wrote on Twitter, starting a tweetstorm.

“First, @michelleisawolf took no prisoners last night. She roasted Trump, Pence, White House staffers, the media, media personalities. Everyone is focused on Sanders but that was only 1 1/2 minutes of Michelle’s act. She went after everyone…as it should be,” Griffin added.

“@michelleisawolf was hired to do a roast. That was her job. She wasn’t hired to offer media analysis or be fair and balanced. She was hired to poke fun at powerful people. Not once did she punch down. She focused on the people/institutions that are powerful beyond measure,” she continued in her series of tweets.

“A comic’s job is to go over the line and then push the line and go over it again. Great comics aren’t supposed to be safe or careful. That would mean we’re not doing our job. By pushing the line we force people to think differently, to ask questions, and disrupt the status quo,” Griffin wrote.

The rant continued on for several more tweets, but the gist was that everyone in President Trump’s administration is a fine target for personal attacks. And, that somehow attacking Sarah Huckabee Sanders personally is in some way speaking truth to power.

Kathy Griffin can keep grasping at straws to revive her career, but she was never that amusing, to begin with, and her attempt to revive her career by using President Donald Trump and his children is embarrassing. She makes herself look dumber every time she speaks.
