How do you all feel about Kathy Griffith and the photo of Donald Trump head decapitated?
Attention-seeking "D" list celebrity attempts to make some sort of "statement," fails miserably.
If she was trying to commit career suicide, I'd say she succeeded with flying colors.
Exactly. I believe she assumed that everyone was going to find it funny and agree with her but it backfired big time.
Funny how she loses her job. Limbaugh can call women sluts and still keep his. Nugent called obama a sub-human mongrel. Poses for photo at white house. Is it gender bias or political?
There you go again. This is CNN
I don't have a problem with it. When I was kid growing up in the Midwest I knew two sisters (black teenagers) whose brother was lynched, castrated, and found hanging by the neck in an abandoned barn near Evansville Indiana. He was kidnapped and murdered by two white supremacists while hitchhiking down highway 41 with his white girlfriend.
My parents (Indigenous) had to arm themselves with a rifle and a shotgun and shoot at white supremacists who tried to run them off of the 200 acre farm they had purchased in an all white farming community (land that was originally stolen from my ancestors by the Americans). They engaged in several firefights during the late 1950's with white racists. I could write a book on the evil I and my family have personally experienced here in the United States as a result of institutionalized racism and white American Terrorists.
I hardly have any sympathy for a racist billionaire who is still alive and spending his blood money after being "attacked" by a comedian. I was with the two teenage sisters when they got the news about their brother. I can still hear them screaming. I was 15 years old, and until that time I never knew a human being could make such a horrific sound. And that is the same horrific scream that has continued throughout the Middle East for over 20 years. No, I have no sympathy for the devil.
What about his children? People don't understand that his eleven year old saw it and immediately thought his dad was killed. What about his family? What if it was your family ? Believe me I am not bashing you by any means.but it is a thought.
Tamir Rice dead and the cop walked. Aiyana Stanley–Jones: 7 year old girl shot dead sleeping on couch. Cop walks! Did U see white people commiserating this much about these black children? Hell no! Trump is still alive. No tears 4 rich white people.
Ronnie, U have made it clear UR parents were N.A-s. U've also said they adopted U. Do you, yourself have N.A.blood via UR Bio parents? Just curious.
Aniyunwiya in my natural mother/fathers family. If either had been all German I would look white, but instead I am dark with high cheekbones. This made me popular with white girls growing up; not so popular with their families. I enjoyed the drama!
That's an impressive story. Should write about it.
Si, truly a garden of good and evil, and the females were quite "active". Many have been fooled by the fiction of brotherly love; a concept seeded by Europeans to pacify the resistance.The treatment of my family is unforgivable. I am all out of love.
It should be fairly simple and at this point, appears to be common public knowledge what the vast majority thinks/feels about Kathy's unfunny, ignorant, crude, rude and unacceptable attempt at a joke (?) Although she used her best acting abilities to publicly apologize, admitting she crossed the line, blah blah blah...poor Kathy also failed at being sincerely sorry. Not one but 2 bad bloopers.
Of course there are still plenty of Right-haters, Trump-haters, who will applaud Kathy, but they'll now have to look far and wide to find her. Cnn has taken the wooden spoon to her behind. No more New Year's Eve with Anderson....and other engagements and sponsors have canceled her. BOOM! What other fall-out is yet to appear, who knows? Kathy may or may not care at all about any of it. She's been a (quasi) celebrity long enough to know that people may have an explosive reaction to public scandal-type incidents for a short period of time, they then move on, while their attention & scorn is focused on the newest faux pas.
She' ll never be thoroughly cleansed of her sin. One look at Michael Richards and his shocking racist rant is remembered by all. And let's not forget Dear Mel Gibson's love song via Voice Mail to the mother of one of his tribe of children. Women especially can quote that message by Mel. So, yeah, Hollywood characters carry their sins on their backs. The thing is, they're so grotesquely wealthy, "we" don't bother them in the least.
Basically, Kathy's stupidity is done and gone. One day, she may realize how very very wretched she showed herself to be & perhaps she'll feel a pang of remorse. Maybe not. Personally, I don't give a damn what Kathy does now or ever. Peace, Paula
We can see with your comment that the train has gone completely off of the track! Did you forget about Trump's arms deal with Saudi Arabia? Not only do they support terrorism, but they "really" behead more people than any country in the world.
Not to mention, ted nugent joked about killing obama, and was invited to the white house--by trump! Mocking that reporter, making fun of everyone. Demonizing anyone who doesnt kiss his ample rump...he loves to dish it out, big crybaby when taking it.
Ronnie..I'm honestly not sure what UR message is 4 me.R U saying K.G,deserves an award 4 her prank? If U feel that way, fine w/ me. Am I the train off the track? That's OK w/ me too. Really don't know what U want me 2 know. I'm sick of them ALL.
As 4 U Leslie..UR repetitious, monotonous, same old crap Babble is more nauseous than puke.Whine,cry,bitch,moan,point & bitch some more.I C "Yes Dear"& skip right over your shit.
U R a certified PITA. Go 4 a long walk, would ya?
I was joking about the train. I'm not joking about the rest. We need to start getting upset about the right things. Trump is still alive. The victims of the Saudi's are not. Our tax dollars are supporting this! Yes, give her a medal.
I'm an old,tired gal,Ronnie.Break time 4 me.I understand U but 69yrs in the world has taught me that my rise in blood pressure never once solved a world problem.It's time 4 the kids 2 do the job.Glad I'll B gone B4 they lite the match!
I have to say im glad youll be gone too.
Since Obama is mixed race, or according to the one drop rule "black", the racist majority could have cared less about the jokes. Poor whites could never stand the notion of a black guy driving a better car.But then a black President appeared. LOL!
Yes, and now trying to erase every mark he made on this country. They really are a sick bunch. As lebron james just said "being black in america is hard". Not so easy being white either, with these bozos repping my race. Eeeyuk
In my opinion she wanted to bring attention to herself. She now hopes to keep it going by blaming president Trump and his family for ruining her life. I have only seen a couple of responses from Trump and Melania which were very appropriate. She looks foolish, and actually appears to have no grip on reality. She exhibited signs of mental illness. Won't surprise me if she crashes and ends up in a mental hospital. Hopefully she has a friend or family member that will step in and keep a close eye on her. I feel very sad for anyone that would be so depraved to pull a stunt like this.
After what i just read, i say she needs her job back, and we need more of it!
Rawstory has article: 5 republicans who called for hillarys death.
"Put in front of a firing squad and shot for treason"
" hung on the washington mall".....
"public service" men taking tax dollars can say this, but a comedienne loses her job for beheading dumpy? Whats he complaining about, saudis behead people all the time, and he "loves the culture"
This is typical of pc repubs. They can say what they want, dems lose their jobs. Some dufus r recently said hed put a bullet throgh the head of someone. But its a man, and a republican so give him a pass.
Remember when that reporter said we should hang the bankers?
He got banned from usa.
Oddonnell considered for firing for being "too mean to trump"
But repubs can call women sluts, threaten obama and hillary, call obama a sub human mongrel, call him a liar during sotu speech, call for hillarys death, and a comedienne cant do the same?
Stop crying sweet-peas. You are as rotten as they come, so suck it up!
Shes getting death threats from trumpland. Given the number of dead russians who confront trump/russia, she has right to be concerned. And spare me the phony barron/mom crap. Trump grabs p*ssies...your high horse is in the gutter.
It's disappointing all the way around. Disappointing she has buckled under pressure,that Obama didn't receive the same consideration, and disappointing that there is more sympathy 4 this rich white kid than black children murdered by police.
Well,the woman running against steve king dropped out due to death threats.If this is what they consider democracy,give me a break.Trump and associates are mobsters.The business type.And putin is a stone cold killer.This,they put over our children.
I think it was a dumb and unfunny stunt, which she now regrets. I have been a fan of hers, I generally appreciate her humor. She did a stupid thing, but I still love her. Lots of people do stupid things they wish they could take back.
Recently she just doubled down on it, she is now claiming Victim!
You mean like trump, after all the vile things hes said about others? Birther-in-chief
I watched the press conference. Disgusting! She groveled and wimped out. When U take a stand U stand your ground and expect the backlash. She reminds me of white suburbanites who become "gangsta rappers". Kathy Griffin: Get Off of My Cloud!
YD & RW
I think you two are living in the wrong country. ObamaBushClintonBushCarter land is no longer.
I can still think for myself. I don't have to jump on the dogpile everytime somebody gets tackled. This land is still the land of the free.
Sherry, good for you. You noticed the deflection and the inability to give factual answers here.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Some of us try too hard to intellectualize complex subjects. But today, people understand images. Please zoom way in to appreciate and see how atrocious these images are.
I don't recall any fallout here on Hubpages concerning racist attacks on Obama. These were even worse, because considering American History, it was an attack on all people of color, and the one hundred thousand white people who have a conscience.
Those pictures need some details. In fact without the details, they are moot, and mute.
Pretty obvious to me. Rope/neck/president/lynch. Calling someone a sub-human mongrel....whats to not understand? And the person who said it was invited to trumps white house...he deserves any kind of sympathy how?
Brad, if 400 years of chattel slavery followed by about 100 years of Jim Crow isn't enough detail for you, I suggest you get a new pair of glasses.
She is an ass. Nothing she did was even close to being funny. She is vulgar, Tasteless and ridiculous. No matter what you think of someone, you don't have the right to do what she did. I've seen a few interviews of her latly and i think she needs mental health help. She seems to be loosing her grip on reality. I am not rying to be mean, she really needs help. No matter what she thinks she is noit the victim.
She looks like an ISIS terrorist, and right now, the political left looks like the fascists they have long accused conservatives of being whether Berkley students beating up people for trying to be in line to hear Milo Yianapolis, the Middlebury students who chased a professor and elderly Charles Murray to a car before putting the female professor in the hospital and Evergreen mobs hunting for white professors and students to bully (and in one case beat) for not vacating the campus as demanded.
When liberals form lynch mobs to degrade and assault people who disagree, they need to stop and look at the harm they are doing. And it is just as immoral when done in the name of love and tolerance when done in the name of unity and strength.
In short, she's riding the same liberal ride to fascism and violence that SJW students are and acting akin to religious fanaticism. Death to the unbeliever, thou shalt not tolerate heresy, off with their heads.
