The Secret Service Is Investigating Kathy Griffin

Follow on FacebookFollow on Twitter

Liberal comedian Kathy Griffin confirmed Friday that she is being investigated by the U.S. Secret Service following a publicity stunt where she posed with a bloodied, severed head of President Donald Trump.

“What’s happening to me has never happened in the history of this great country,” Griffin said at a press conference where she was flanked by her attorneys, including Lisa Bloom. “A sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the First Lady are personally trying to ruin my life forever.”

Since the image went viral May 30, at least five venues have cancelled appearances by Griffin. CNN also announced that she would no longer appear as a part of its New Year’s Eve broadcast with co-host Anderson Cooper.

Griffin apologized for the “joke,” but remained defiant in her attitude towards the president. Her defense attorney, Dmitri Gore, answered questions about the Secret Service’s investigation. “We believe that it’s going to be closed,” Gore told reporters. “We don’t even think it should have ever been opened.”

“The Secret Service is doing their job I suppose anytime they perceive there’s a threat. But the really wasn’t a threat,” Gore said. “Ms. Griffin has expressed to you it was just a bad joke, she’s apologized for it, and we believe the Secret Service investigation should be closed as quickly as possible.”

Griffin believes that she has received so much backlash because she is a woman. “This wouldn’t be happening to a guy,” Griffin asserted. “This is a woman thing.”

“They’re using me as the shiny object, so that nobody’s talking about his [Trump’s] FBI investigation,” Griffin said.

The photographer of the image, Tyler Shields, defended Griffin. “It’s a very touchy subject … but this is not real. We didn’t kill anybody nor do I feel anybody should be killed. It’s no different from a movie. It just happens to be a still image,” Shields told Fox News.

“This president of all the people is going to come after me? He picked the wrong redhead!” Griffin said. “I’m not laying down for this guy. I’m going to keep making jokes about this guy.”

    No sweety they made five replies to your disgusting crap video and republicans, democrats and even liberals finally came together for the greater good to let you know NONE OF US agree with glorifying ISIS which is exactly what you did by emulating their favorite way of killing inmocent people. I can only imagine how those families of victims feel especially the canadian gentleman that was recently beheaded

    “Unprecedented?” Selective word to denote a form of privilege – martyrdom. Except, Griffin needs a history lesson. It is not unprecedented. There have been many people who have had their lives wrecked because activists/government injured their lives. The Duke LaCrosse players, Don Imus, Isaiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy?), young, white heterosexual males falsely accused of rape on college campuses. I could sit here and thin of other examples but don’t have the time. By using the word “unprecedented,” you imply you are especially singled out as the symbol of all symbols of repression and therefore privileged, important, relevant…You are NOT! Your wounds are self-inflicted.

    ISIS Kathy only has herself to blame, but hey, liberals just love being victims. Did this subversive vile person go to Hillary Clinton’s Blame Everyone Else School?

    “I’m not laying down for this guy. I’m going to keep making jokes about this guy.”
    So in other words she wasn’t sorry at all for mocking the president. Lock her up.

    I don’t care what the bimbo says, she implied very clearly what she believes should be done to the U.S. President and others may not take it as a joke instead it may feel like a suggestion. Plain and simple she is encouraging/implying that someone should harm our President. I hope and pray she gets some jail time even if it’s just a few months. A Point has to be made and this is the time to make it! You don’t have to like or agree with the person but you damn sure need to respect the Office!
