Friday's HOT MIC
Kathy Griffin gave a press conference today in which she did not retract her apology over the Trump severed head photo, but did attack Trump. From Nancy Dillon at The New York Daily News:
"A sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the First Lady are personally, I feel, personally trying to ruin my life forever. Forever," she said. "You guys know him. He's never going to stop." ...
The comedian said she won't let their public comments stop her from telling the jokes she wants to, though she suggested they won't be as ghastly as the controversial decapitated Trump photo.
“This bully, this president, of all people is gonna come after me?” Griffin said. “He picked the wrong redhead.”
“I’m gonna make fun of a president. And you know what, I’m gonna make fun of him more now, more. I’m not going to threaten him. I have no desire to harm him or anyone. I would never want to harm anybody.”
What did she think was going to happen? Was Griffin surprised when Trump tweeted about her? If she wanted him to stop "personally trying to ruin" her life, why release this statement?
After the backlash, when CNN fired her, this woman might have had a change of heart. It seems she decided she would become an anti-Trump celebrity, because that's the only thing she still has going for her. Make no mistake, she is now egging Trump on. She's trying to turn herself into the victim. Let's see if Trump takes the bait. He should just let sleeping dogs lie and move on, but he's Donald Trump...
