SICK: Thoughts on Kathy Griffin’s Pathetic Performance Today & Her Threats to go After Barron Trump
I sat through the Kathy Griffin presser a little while ago. I have some thoughts on it, so I figured it would be prudent to come post them on this very site. I am currently imagining your shock right now at the preceding statement. On to the thoughts…
First off, Lisa Bloom, the spawn of notorious fraudster and feminist harpie Gloria Allred, was the one behind this hilarious spectacle. I don’t think I’ve told this story all that often, so let me clue you into one of the ways I became an anti-feminist. A huge motivating factor on this front was seeing Gloria and her braindead daughter on TV every night saying every accused rapist was guilty. It was listen and believe before that phrase was made popular. Wendy Murphy is another example. These women and anti-male, they’re anti the presumption of innocence, and they use feminism as a way to make a quick buck. They rarely practice actual law, instead serving up media stunts like the one we saw earlier today.
Speaking of today, it was a total disaster. Ms. Bloom spent time trying to spin for Kathy Griffin’s ludicrous lie about doing this to mock Donald Trump’s comments about Megyn Kelly. Apparently, this was some highbrow comedy reference to that infamous episode. The only problem is, it clearly was not. If it had been a seated Donald Trump mannequin, perhaps I might buy it. But Griffin was holding the bloody head aloft in the same way ISIS agents of terror do after the behead someone. There is zero chance Griffin and the photographer didn’t know how the public would view this pic. It was clearly imagery that was designed to bring to mind the killing of Donald Trump (a person who she sucked up to in the past, by the way).
The other problem from today is that there were no laughs. Kathy Griffin is an alleged professional comedian. Shouldn’t, ya know, she be trying to amuse people? Not only that, she tried to go the crying route. It was the wrong way to go, and besides that, she couldn’t even squeeze out any decent waterworks. Sad!
Griffin is not a sympathetic figure, period. She ruined her career in the dumbest way possible and as far as I can tell, she wasn’t even paid for this craven act. It was all for attention. Well, she got what she was going for…and then some. How can anyone feel sorry for a person like that. I don’t think she should be jailed, but the fact that it’s even being mentioned shows how far off-base she was here.
There’s another reason it’s hard for any reasonable person to feel sorry for Kathy. She explicitly said she wanted to target Donald Trump’s 11-year-old child, Barron.
“Now more than ever we must absolutely go for all the absurdities,” Kathy Griffin told Vulture at the Equality Now Gala Tuesday night. “For me, that’s Trump and all things Trump. It’s not about trying to be an equal-opportunity offender anymore because Hillary got such a beat down. It’s his turn. So I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.”
So, of course, Griffin supported Rosie O’Donnell when she tweeted a video asking if Barron Trump, 10-year-old son of Donald and Melania, was on the autism spectrum. “After the beat down he gave her, she can say whatever she wants to say to that piece of shit,” Griffin said before correcting herself. “Oh, that’s President Piece of Shit.”
This piece of shit, to use her own phrasing, is getting everything she so richly deserves.
