Yesterday, purported comedian Kathy Griffin received the attention she obviously craves by posing for a photograph holding a model of Donald Trump’s blood soaked severed head. (You can view the image here: Kathy Griffin Beheads Donald Trump in Shocking Photo Shoot (PHOTO + VIDEO)) The Secret Service was alerted and is investigating. (They did that when Madonna told a crowd she thought a lot about blowing up the White House, too.) Is Griffin an actual threat to the President of the United States? Probably not. Still, what if some deranged person sees the picture and is inspired to carry out violence? Is Griffin then inciting violence? A youngster who brings a squirt gun to school is severely punished, while an adult photographed posing with the beheaded head of the POTUS is just playing? http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/secret-service-opens-investigation-into-madonna-threat/ Second-Grader Brings Water Gun To School... His Mother Get SHOCKING Phone Call Prattville teen expelled for bringing water gun to school Are we being a little too prickly over this? After all, Free Speech includes the right to express oneself even if it is extremely distasteful. The Griffin photo sure is that. In this case though, the Secret Service has to waste time on a third rate comedian’s antics when a genuine threat may be going on that requires their attention. Maybe prickly is not a strong enough reaction to her vile craft. Did Kathy Griffin break the law with her photo of a decapitated Trump? She apologized -after she learned that a severed head dripping with blood is upsetting and utterly lacking in mirth. Even Anderson Cooper, who good-naturedly endured Griffin's playful on-air faux fellatio to ring in the New Year a few years back, shared that he was “appalled” by her photo shoot. (In related news, CNN is “reassessing” whether Griffin will host their New Year’s Eve show ever again.) Not only that, a company called Squatty Potty, for whom Griffin did a commercial, released a statement letting everybody know that they do not share Griffin’s toilet. (You might say, she’s been thoroughly flushed.) Griffin Apologizes Profusely For Posting Picture Of Herself Holding Bloody, Decapitated Trump Head Apologies ring hollow when they are hollow. She’s sorry. She moved the line and crossed it. She sees that the image is disturbing and not funny. She gets it. She’s made a lot of mistakes in her career. She means well. She is just a hard working gal. She’ll do better next time. And so on. Kathy Griffin on Twitter What we have here is a crass clown. Somehow she keeps finding a spotlight for her brand of entertainment. Her latest effort is particularly astonishing because she manages to be even less funny than ever before. Think about it. What is funny about a bloody severed head? Any bloody severed head. Nothing is funny about it. It’s not funny when sick freaks use one for a soccer ball. It’s not funny if it’s on a pike. It’s not funny if the head belongs to someone who is the worst person you can think of. It’s not even funny when it’s a cartoon head. Sadly, this awful episode represents success for Kathy Griffin. After this brouhaha dies down and nobody is paying attention to her anymore, you have to wonder what horrific performance her pathetic muse will create next. Here’s the bottom line. Freedom of Speech includes the right to expressions of wince inducing stupidity such as what Griffin offers. Freedom of Speech also guarantees our right to tell Griffin that she is a creepy hack. ‘Sorry,’ Says Comedian About Trump 'Beheading'; 'Sick,' Tweets Trump Trump: Kathy Griffin 'should be ashamed of herself'
