Kathy Griffin Just Lost Her Head for a Moment – Get Over It



(picture not shown as practically

Kathy Griffin’s rather tasteless “beheaded Trump” photo was a poor attempt at humor. Call it a poor decision at the end of a long day or whatever, but it has created quite the maelstrom.

Now her lawyer has gotten into the mix.

Apparently, no one involved knew that such a threat against the President – even in jest – was illegal. But, as Kathy’s lawyer should have known, ignorance of the law is no excuse. I thought even lawyers knew that.

So now the Secret Service is all up in her face and she’s a bit intimidated by it all… “it was just a joke!” she says. And she is, after all, a comedian and sometimes jokes do fall flat.

Now, CNN has fired her from their New Year’s Eve show… like when did CNN even care about what Trump thinks?

So, Ms Griffin has gotten a great amount of press over the past couple of days but I think we should really just move on. She doesn’t need a life sentence for her stunt, a mere slap on the hand should do, shouldn’t it?

Something should also be said about Brad Plumer’s recent NY Times article where he seems reticent to mention the President as anything but “Mister” Trump.

Sure, it’s not as bad as a beheading cartoon but it does continue the divisiveness that has come over the country of late.

“Not My President” has become a sort of rallying cry for the dividers. Strange, but I first came across the phrase where people were trying to distance themselves from the then President, Obama. I objected to it then and I object to it now. If the President of the country is not “your” President, if you would rather show him disrespect, or if you would rather behead him, then kindly leave and join a country where he would NOT be your President.

Otherwise, work to make the country better with what we currently have, learn to work together regardless of party preference (or comedic preference), and perhaps we will get a new leader in a few years… perhaps the one we should have had in 2016: Bernie Sanders.

Until then, stop tilting at windmills. It is too distracting and there is a lot of work to do.

  1. E W Johnson Says:

    In a video for TMZ during the photo shoot, Griffin makes very clear that she was aware of the extremely severe nature of the photograph. She created the image with controversial photographer Tyler Shields, whom Griffin called “wildly talented.” She said that she and Shields are “not afraid to do images that make noise,” adding that first she is an artist.

    After eliciting a high-five from the photographer while looking at the images, Griffin jokes, “We have to move to Mexico today cause we’re gonna go to prison, federal prison.” Shields replies, “Yeah, yeah.” Griffin continues in the TMZ video: “Call your dad, apologize, then let’s you and me and Darrell just go to Mexico today cause we’re not surviving this. K?”
