Let’s be honest, folks, the image of her “apologizing” for her Trump beheading video is more disturbing than the original video itself. Whoever does her makeup deserves an award for making this pig even remotely acceptable in public.
Kathy Griffin has apologized for posting a video of President Trump‘s severed head after a furious backlash, sparking the Secret Service into an investigation.
The controversial comedian tweeted ‘I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong’ after Griffin was seen slowly raising Trump’s head during a photoshoot with infamous photographer Tyler Shields.
She also posted a video promising to remove the offending image after she was lambasted by all sides of the political spectrum, including Chelsea Clinton.
But the apology was not enough to stop the army of critics, both Trump supporters and Democrats from attacking Griffin on social media for the outrageous stunt.
Even her long-time New Years Eve co-host Anderson Cooper said he was ‘appalled’ by the photo shoot, which he described as ‘clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.’
Meanwhile, the Secret Service made an oblique reference to the controversy on Twitter, reminding everyone that any threats against the president are taken seriously.
‘On it! @SecretService has a robust protective intelligence division that monitors open source reporting & social media to evaluate threats. Threats made against @SecretService protectees receive the highest priority of all of our investigations. #ProtectionNeverRests.’
As the firestorm of criticism surrounding Griffin increased a CNN spokesman said that they are ‘evaluating’ Griffin’s long-time role hosting its New Year’s Eve coverage but have ‘made no decisions at this point’
‘We found what she did disgusting and offensive. We are pleased to see she has apologized and asked that the photos be taken down. We are evaluating New Year’s Eve and have made no decisions at this point,’ the spokesman said.
Even former first daughter Chelsea Clinton was quick to express her outrage at Griffin tweeting: ‘This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president.
You know it’s bad when you’ve lost Chelsea Clinton. Anyway, instead of piling on this talent-less clown, she should be permanently shunned, forever relegated to a life of misery, knowing full well why nobody wants anything to do with her. Meanwhile, her pal Anderson Cooper offered up this batch of weaksauce in response to the video:
For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.

Um, Andy, she did more than taking part in the video. It’s her idea, she wrote it and starred in it. A bit more than “taking part in.”
