Kathy Griffin learned a hard lesson in weaponized outrage

"Total elapsed time from severed head to “he broke me”: Three. Whole. Days."

John Podhoretz  "What a time we’ve had with Kathy Griffin. Let’s take a nostalgic look back — first to the image of Griffin holding up the president’s severed head. Then to her panicked apology. Then to CNN and Squatty Potty (don’t ask) severing its ties with her amid complaints from Trump family members. And finally to that gloriously deranged press conference in which a sobbing Griffin claimed she was being “censored” and that Donald Trump “broke me.”

The face of Hollywood
Total elapsed time from severed head to “he broke me”: Three. Whole. Days.

"Griffin wanted the image of the severed head to go viral, and it did — along with Griffin’s perpetration of the image. If Griffin’s career is over, it will have ended due to her own suicidal act and not due to pressure from the Trumps. You live by the meme, you die by the meme." . . .
