Comedian Kathy Griffin received immense backlash when she did a photo shoot in which she held the fake, severed head of President Donald Trump. Now, she’s trying to put the blame on the president for tweeting at her and causing her career to go down the drain.

Appearing on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Friday, Griffin explained how her life was changed in the aftermath, pinning fault on President Trump.

“Yes, I took a photo that changed my life irrevocably,” Griffin said, admitting her mistake, but not before adding, “That was one thing.”

“Because the walls caved in on me, and the accidental president – it’s an accident – he tweeted at me that, you know, my – he tweeted against me, which made everything cancel in my life, basically,” she said.

The president’s tweet, which what she claims “made everything cancel in my life,” was his tweet in which he wrote the comedian “should be ashamed of herself” and then defended his family against her act:

“Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”

Griffin went on to say she was “in the middle of a 50-city tour, and within 12 hours, I had not one single day of work ahead of me.”

“And, by the way, to this day, I do not have one single day of paid work ahead of me,” she added. “So I’ve been digging myself out of this rabbit hole for last year and a half.”

Griffin recalled the day that she got a call about being put under a two-month federal investigation and would face possible charges for “conspiracy to assassinate the president of the United States”:

“So a lot of people thought, you know, I got a call from the Secret Service or got in like fake Hollywood trouble. But, no, this is real-life trouble.”

“That’s where your tax dollars went, everybody. Investigating Kathy Griffin,” she said.

The comedian said she received death threats following her photo shoot, which served as a political jab at President Trump as she held the fake, decapitated head of the president, similarly to an ISIS assassination.

After all of the backlash Griffin received from the photo shoot, she previously claimed she was “singled out” in the aftermath and has rescinded her apologies for the photo.

On Colbert’s show said she went overseas to get back her career with her “Laugh Your Head Off” tour.

Do not worry, Kathy Griffin, you can go to SoKo..there you can do any and every thing with impunity. You can draw a porn painting of a lady president a d they will be proud of you as a national champion…and you will be free from rist of being charged..yea..you will be hero there in hell. Considering the communist and anti Trump stance of SoKo government ..they will welcome you and decorate you with the national(MOONJUSAPA government given) medals.


Kathy Griffin should be locked up. Six months in a Federal Detention Center may have given her some humility.


Kathy you’re trying to destroy Trump’s life anyway you and his families. You don’t care who you hurt. Then when it back fires you blame him. You did it to yourself, when you held up that head. You deserve everything you get

Kathy Griffin thought she was belittling Trump with that photo but it shamed her in the eyes of all and she deserves all the consequences – serves her right.


Boo and hoo. Does anyone really care about her career? She had 50 city tour? Now that’s hard to believe. Who wastes their money on such a no talent? Never thought her vulgarity was worth watching. So she pulls a cruel and stupid stunt and thinks she’ll get praised for it?

Liberals ALWAYS blame somebody or something else……..can’t admit their own stupidity or failings. That’s why most of them think they’re oppressed in one way or another. If they didn’t have someone else to blame, maybe they would start looking inwards at themselves and blame the proper person for how their own lives turn out.

Kathy, Kathy, Kathy….you’re still as stupid as a brick…do you still honestly believe your sad attempt at political satire did not turn out to be quite as funny as you thought it might….yes you’re career experienced an expedited downward spiral at that point …BUT the simple fact of the matter Kathy…is YOU WERE TOTALLY IRRELEVANT LONG BEFORE THAT and you and you alone made the decision to have yourself photographed with a fake severed head resembling that of President Trump….IDIOT!!!
