More on the heroine of Hollywood

"One other big question is whether Griffin will mention what others have gotten away with, such as the picturing of George W. Bush’s head on a pike in Game of Thrones:  I certainly hope she does, and the nation has a conversation about the media's treatment of the POTUS and his family."   Thomas Lifson

Kathy Griffin Gets Her Comeuppance  "How could Kathy Griffin think she didn't cross a line with her Islamic State group­beheads­thepresident imitation? In a sense, her ignorance is understandable. Since Donald Trump was elected, there have been no lines to cross. Anything ... everything ... has been acceptable. The challenge has been not to temper the outrage but to push its limits. It was "art," she claimed at first. 
    "Despite taping a video apology, she was dumped by CNN, which had promoted this "comedian" for 10 years as New Year's Eve entertainment in Times Square alongside Anderson Cooper. It tells you everything you need to know about CNN that, up to this point, it had found her antics acceptable. 
    "CNN started putting her on air in 2007 after her award­ acceptance rant at the Creative Arts Emmys during which she told Jesus Christ to "suck it." She cracked: "A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus." 
    "Griffin has long used smears on conservatives and Republicans to boost her career. In 2010, she caused CNN stars John King and Dana Bash to laugh nervously as she described Sen. Scott Brown's teenage daughters as "prostitutes.' "  . . . 
Followed by outrage which she savored.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) was supposed to have Griffin attend one of his book tour events in July. At first, he said the gig was still on, but later decided that it would be best of the comedian just didn’t show up (via Politico)
Kathy Griffin claims she is victim of ‘bullying’   . . . "One other big question is whether Griffin will mention what others have gotten away with, such as the picturing of George W. Bush’s head on a pike in Game of Thrones:


 Targeting Trump – Kathy Griffin in 2016: “my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron.”…  "Against the backdrop of Kathy Griffin producing a video where she decapitated President Donald Trump; and yesterday hiring attorney Lisa Bloom to conduct a press conference scheduled for today, it is worth noting an interview Ms. Griffin gave to Vulture Media at the Equality Now Gala in December of 2016:

[…] “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.”  (link)
