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?

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.

I did not vote for DJ Trump nor for Hillary but I would still like to see Griffin's candy azz fined and jailed for this.

Nobody here has denied Griffin's right to free speech. Her ISIS inspired display simply isn't funny. Get it?

what's REALLY funny is watching America's TRUE "snowflakes" melt down over kathy griffin. :eusa_clap:






in Griffin's case, there is no question the photo of her holding a mock Trump head is protected speech, said Stanford University Law Professor Nathaniel Persily.

The photograph did not directly threaten the president and it didn't urge other people to harm him, Persily said.

"People are allowed to wish the president dead," up to the point they express a real intent to harm him, Persily said.

"To threaten someone you need words that encourage some sort of action," and those words are absent in Griffin's photo, he said.

Did Kathy Griffin break the law with her photo of a decapitated Trump?



In a 1969 ruling, the Supreme Court overturned the conviction of Robert Watts, a young man accused of threatening former president Lyndon Johnson. Watts said at a 1966 political rally that he was "not going" if he was drafted to serve in Vietnam and added that "if they ever make me carry a rifle, the first man I want to get in my sights is L.B.J."

The Supreme Court ruled Watts' statement, which is much closer to meeting the definition of a threat than Griffin's photos, was merely "crude political hyperbole."

"In light of its context and conditional nature," Watts speech "did not constitute a knowing and willful threat against the President," the court ruled, citing the importance of the First Amendment.

"A statute such as this one, which makes criminal a form of pure speech, must be interpreted with the commands of the First Amendment clearly in mind," said the court. "What is a threat must be distinguished from what is constitutionally protected speech."
