Comedian Kathy Griffin stated she is taking back her apology to President Trump for the bloody head photo which she once posted.
Griffin stated, “By the way I take the apology back. F*ck him.”
Sara Haines of ABC stated, “OK, we are going to need to ding that bell if that happens again Kathy.”
Griffin replied, “And Don, Jr. and Eric, or as I call them Eddie Munster and Date Rape. I’m not holding back on this family. This president is different and I have been through the mill and so now I’m back on the road. I sold out Carnegie Hall in less than 24 hours.”
“I mean, I’m not kidding. I’ve performed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Two places Trump has never been and can’t find on a map. And so of course with my connection with the military I thought of literally Daniel Pearl’s mother and so I thought, OK, obviously not very many people literally witnessed that horrendous event but when I thought of her I thought, OK, apologize. And then when I found out that I was really just kind of part of the Trump wood chipper which Michelle Wolf is in now and, you know, I didn’t know they had this apparatus already set up before my silly picture of a $5 halloween mask and ketchup and wanted to make a statement about what a misogynist he is.”
“It’s important — the First Amendment is the First Amendment for a reason. It’s the first one — and also, I mean, the thing is, this guy just is different. I don’t mean to disrespect the presidency. I’ve been to the White House. I have visited. I, you know, I was doing stand-up for so long, you guys know there was a time in the Bill Clinton days you could make fun of that Monica dress all day long and nobody thought you were a terrorist but now, like, you said things have gotten not only politically incorrect but this administration and learned it firsthand because I got a call the next day from the Department of Justice and I was under a two-month federal investigation for conspiracy to assassinate the president of the United States.”
