CNN finally shows an inkling of class when they fired Kathy Griffin for holding up a fake head of Donald Trump that was drenched in fake blood. The President and First Lady were both extremely unhappy. Even the Route 66 Casino has canceled her upcoming performance, and an ad campaign with Squatty Potty has also been dumped.
“As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing. When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.” Melania Trump
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

This is the controversial photo:
All of the President’s children and many others are having a hard time with the images, Barron among them.
Kathy Griffin USED to host the CNN New Year’s Eve show, but she won’t any longer.
“I’m a comic. I cross the line. I move the line, then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it.” Kathy Griffin
Unfortunately, it is unclear if she really does get it. She chose to do the photo shoot with Tyler Shields, who is well known for “crossing the line.” She said that she doesn’t condone violence against anybody, but was just “mocking the Mocker in Chief.” Soooooo… there really is no “sorry” involved in her action.
But she will pay dearly for it. She knew from the beginning that the image she was about to portray would be called into question. In a behind the scenes video released by TMZ, she exclaimed, “We have to move to Mexico today, but we’re going to go to prison — federal prison…We’re not surviving this, okay?”
Tyler Shields also mentioned that Tijuana was nice this time of year. They apparently think it’s funny. It’s not.
She likely won’t go to federal prison, but the Secret Service has indeed taken notice of her “mockery.”

In fairness, there were often vicious images done of Obama during his presidency. None quite as bloody as the ones done by Griffin and Shields, however. The Secret Service has been kept very busy with all the liberal hate. The unfortunate problem is that while some of the libs are “keyboard warriors” who are too cowardly to move off their chairs, there are true psychopaths out there that really would harm him.
Which is why Kathy Griffin’s stupid photo shoot should put her behind bars at lest for a while to make sure she really does “get it.”
You are a sicko just like other liberal wackos .You cannot apologize your way out of this. You are NOT sorry just upset at results

Other liberal hacks have been making the situation worse as well:
