Kathy Griffin fired from CNN for radical anti-Trump behavior


There was a time when Kathy Griffin was a cute, funny lady. Now she's ugly in many ways, thanks to her radical liberal behavior.

She thought she could get away with anything that's anti-Trump, after Colbert's comments and Snoop's video etc.

Well, she was WRONG!! There is a line after all, and she clearly crossed it.

It's not very often I can say CNN did the right thing, but this time they certainly did.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/05/31/media/cnn-kathy-griffin/


Kathy Griffin will not be back as co-host of CNN's annual New Year's Eve program, the network announced Wednesday.

CNN's decision comes one day after photos were released of Griffin that showed the comedian holding up a bloody head resembling that of President Donald Trump.

"CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program," the network said in a statement.

Did any celebrity do something even remotely similar with Obama? Rap videos depicting Obama being shot? Major network talk show hosts explicitly talking about Obama engaging in homosexual acts?

Again, it's not the "right" that's unhinged.

I like that analogy, although I'm not aware of Ann doing anything nearly as vile.

Always like her on New Years with Anderson Cooper but that is all I know about her. I just thought Anderson is this uptight stuffy guy and she was like the wild party chick and they made a funny pair. Too bad she made this mistake! I don't know her beyond New Years.

Jenny McCarthy is a lot better wild party chick on New Years Eve, and way hotter.

I got her Playboy. It is disturbing, many of us disliked Obama but he is one of the Presidents and we would protect the President with our own lives. At least I was brought up that way. Disagree all you want with President but take a bullet for the President.

Same here.

And I cannot say I'm surprised that none of the radical liberals here has denounced in this thread Griffin's actions. If anything, they likely condone it. sigh

Got her big break with a recurring role on Seinfeld.

She mostly does standup comedy.

There would probably be more outrage if McCain or Romney were President as well . I know some don't want to hear this, but I believe Trump's election unleashed a lot of demons, a lot of vitriol in this country- on all sides

Conservatives posted a whole lot of tasteless,offensive pics and jokes about Obama and Michelle.I'm just saying hmmm and Trump has made fun of people with disabilities.When they behave that way,they shouldn't be outraged/shocked when the other side does it,too.

Yes,and that's because Trump is a very divisive person.He's not the type of person who will be able to bring people together.

I said the same thing in another thread. He created this toxic atmosphere, and when people feel like they are under attack, they'll fight back, and in some cases equally irrationally and counterproductively

Exactly! Trump created this toxic atmosphere and it's not good for our country.

Hate crimes skyrocketed in 2015, long before he became president.

Damn those pesky things called "facts"!

I agree lots of the hate Obama got was wrong and racist. I think some of the hate Trump gets is racist as well. You can't really have it one way. I think though you guys can agree if someone prominent had Obama's head like in this Griffin picture all bloody a lot more outrage and calling "racist" would be done. My point is many people were or still are offensive on twitter towards President Obama but I don't believe prominent celebs be pulling this shit here towards Obama and I guess not to Trump either. I even though the "cocksucker" Colbert comment was a little too much. I'm certain all kinds of back ally racist shit is posted on social media but that is a different platform to me than National Tv which is ultimately paid partially by we the people with tax money. I find it wrong and foul.

I have a theory that when terrorists attacks like San Bernardino, Bataclan, Pulse, 9-11 people get upset, fired up and stupid and that is when they attack innocent Muslims. If they are that pissed! Join the military.

I also find it offensive to try to "censor" the President speaking out against terrorism or speak up about border security. You can't say this or that you may upset the terrorists feelings. Please!

Trump didn't exactly set people on fire in cages, behead people, rape and torture children, go in with a gun and blow 100 innocent people away, a lot can be made of how this atmosphere got set.

Dang, they actually fired her, even after the apology??? Even Wendy Williams was wagging her finger. She did go way too far given the climate of the world. Now dude has the CIA working for him too. Hard lesson learnt.
