Kathy Griffin stepped in it big time when she posted an obscene photo of the President, but instead of humbly accepting responsibility, she hired bottom-feeding attorney Lisa Bloom to bring her excavator over to expedite the digging of her proverbial hole.
In fact, the pair went on national television yesterday and gave a performance for the ages, with Griffin breaking down into crocodile tears as Bloom accused President Trump of destroying Griffin’s life. It was so bad that at one point, Griffin even blamed “old white men” for her disastrous career, completely disregarding the fact that the funniest performance of her life didn’t happen until yesterday’s press conference.
Here’s a reminder of how disastrous the ordeal was:

However, as it turns out, Griffin wasn’t exactly the victim she painted herself to be. Shocker.
According to a report from Vulture, she actually plotted to be as brutal as possible to the President, promising to “deliver a beat down” to him and his family. Worse yet, she specifically mentioned young Barron, who’s only 11 and was mortified after seeing the picture she posted, because to her attacking a young boy is “edgy.”
“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.”
But fear not, for Griffin’s deplorable antics have pretty much guaranteed the end of her career. The Daily Mail is reporting that soon after she finished the vile presser with her scum-sucking buddy Bloom, the rest of her tour dates were canceled.
Oh yeah, it’s like that.
From the Daily Mail:
The last venue of seven upcoming show dates, the Uptown Theatre in Napa, California, just cancelled her show scheduled for June 17, it announced on its Facebook page.
The Uptown cancelled after her press conference, in which she said that Trump ‘broke’ her and that ‘There’s a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me!’
Most of the people commenting on the Napa venue’s Facebook wall agreed with the decision.
‘WELL DONE!! Especially after her stupid news conference today defending her actions,’ wrote Theresa Coolong.
‘Thank you for standing up for decency and respecting America,’ said Marsha Mirachi.
There’s an old saying that goes something like, if you find yourself in a hole, it’s best to stop digging.
