Off With Her Head

By now you’ve heard about comedian – and I use that term very loosely – Kathy Griffin’s mock beheading of President Trump. After the understandable uproar, her part-time employer CNN – eventually – levied its punishment.

She’s fired.

The network made the announcement via Twitter Wednesday morning. “CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the CNN Public Relations account tweeted.

The termination comes one day after the comedienne posted a photo and video of her holding a fake severed head of President Donald Trump. She later apologized for the photo and video, saying it went too far, and removed it from her Twitter account. She had made it as part of a photo shoot with Tyler Shields, but they did not disclose what the project was.

Trump tweeted about the photo early on Wednesday, writing “My children, especially my 11-year-old son Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”

Reports claim Barron saw the image and initially thought it was real. That fact alone should have merited an instant firing, but CNN values politics over morals, so they waited a full day before taking action. I give them credit for severing ties with Griffin, but there are far too many people in the MSM excusing her actions.

  1. The fact that the main stream media had a bigger fit over Trump’s tweet with the word “covfefe” rather than the disgusting, distasteful video Griffin made tells you how distorted the elites view of things is in this country. And Griffin’s apology was about as sincere as Bill Clinton’s infamous “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”

  2. I am positive that she will be punished and made to host some horrible show like the Oscars. It is a horrible show that no nice person should be forced to host or watch.

  3. So she hosted a New Year’s Eve gig and now doesn’t. That firing is not a real big loss. She could use some serious pain in her miserable life. I’m not one to use the “C” word much, but somehow, I’m thinking she fits the term perfectly and her photo should be next to the “C” word in the dictionary. It’s nice though, that she so SINCERELY apologized. MeToo seems to have pointed that out already. It would be a lot nicer if she apologized to a judge as he was sentencing her to prison.

  4. Metoo – Ben Sasse, who is quickly becoming my most hated senator, is on his second day of snarkily tweeting out the word. For a guy who claims to be a conservative, he sure likes to follow the liberals’ lead.

    Cathy – I have never watched the Oscars all the way through. The only time I watched any of it was when Unforgiven was up for so many awards.

    RG – Only conservatives go to prison for things like this. Of course, conservatives rarely do things like this, so…

  5. Did you see the latest? The dingbat has hired an attorney (GloriaAllred’s daughter, natch) to address the bullying that the Trumps did to poor little her. Guess she didn’t read that Melania WILL sue if you push her too far.
