UPDATED: Trump Derangement Syndrome Takes a Grisly Turn

Kathy-Griffin-Trump-severed-Head

This story has been updated. Griffin has released an apology video. Scroll to the bottom to see the update.

We all know this, but it needs to be said. If someone had done anything like this to attack President Obama during the Obama years, the enraged outcries would have reverberated around the world and the swooning media would have pointed to a "climate of hate," indicting everyone on the right for the outrage. Of course, nothing like this ever happened during the Obama years because people on the Right aren't as bat-guano insane as people on the Left.

Enter alleged "comedienne" Kathy Griffin.

Via TMZ:

The comedian posed for the gory shot during a photo session with famed photog Tyler Shields, who's known for edgy, shocking pics. We got the pic before the release.

During the photo shoot, Kathy joked that she and Tyler would need to move to Mexico once the pics got released, for fear they'd be thrown in prison.

At the very least, she should fear a visit from the Secret Service.

President Trump's son Donald Jr. had a great response. "Disgusting but not surprising," he tweeted. "This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS?"
