Kathy Griffin accused President Donald Trump and his family of launching a campaign to destroy her life in response to the image she posted earlier this week in which she appeared to be holding the commander-in-chief’s severed head.
The comedian broke down in tears as she detailed the torrent of abuse she has been receiving online, and the constant death threats which she described as detailed and specific.
She stated however that she will not back down from this fight, saying: ‘I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He is a bully.’
Later in the interview Griffin said that her career was likely over now as a result of this incident, and that President Trump had ‘broke’ her, moments after she declared: ‘There’s a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me!’
Griffin, 56, declared at one point that this would not be happening to her if she was a ‘white man.’
Her lawyer Lisa Bloom also suggested during the press conference that despite reports, Barron was likely not that upset after seeing the image of Griffin with the decapitated head by stating the child was ‘allegedly’ traumatized.
‘We don’t know that. You’re assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false,’ said Bloom.
It was also confirmed at the press conference that the Secret Service is investigating Griffin over the image, with the comedian saying: ‘Yeah I might get arrested today. I don’t care.’ …
This is funny because the left does this to non-PC people all the time. As Griffin says, “It’s not right. It’s just not right. … I’ve had everybody turn on me.” She must go, because the PC crew drive non-PC people out of public life for less. If we don’t hold them to the same standards, they lord it over us and win.
