Remember how bad you experienced for comedian Kathy Griffin when CNN fell her from its New Year’s Eve show … just because she had done a photo shoot in which she posed, ISIS-style, with President Trump’s bloody, severed manager?
Well, get ready to feel bad all over again, because Griffin’s still not done talking about it.

Politico on Tuesday wrote a piece on” What happens when Trump targets you on Twitter” and included Griffin among the persons “targeted” by Trump … simply because of that whole bloody severed head thing. For the record, here’s how he targeted her:
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, specially my 11 year age-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

Griffin told Politico about the damage done to her vocation after Trump posted that tweet.
In the days after Trump highlighted the photo, the Emmy Award-winning comedian was burnt from CNN, where she was set to co-host the channel’s New Year’s Eve show alongside Anderson Cooper. She was plunged as a luminary endorser for Squatty Potty. The Secret Service launched an investigation. Today, she says she still can’t volume a gig anywhere in the United States. Griffin accuses the change in her status to the chairman personally driving the outrage machine.“I think it would have been run in a few weeks without his tweet, ” she admitted. “Trump knows what would be perceived as something hysterical and he adoration hysteria. There are millions of people who suppose I’m the states members of ISIS to this day.” …
… is in accordance with Griffin, Trump’s response to the photo was a calculated move to confuse from burning former FBI Director James Comey. “It was very soon after the Comey firing, ” she said. “He absolutely use me as a tool to distract from his bad news of the day.”
So she blames Trump’s tweet — and absolutely no truth to the rumors tasteless photo — for her vocation fuss. Maybe the photo shoot was just a bad hypothesi?
Well, @KathyGriffin, that’s what tools are for. To be used. And you are DEFINITELY a tool.

Is she trying to suggest that it’s Trump’s flaw that she did a photo shoot of her holding Trump’s severed chief? These people are insane. https :// t.co/ ZlebOOQN7b
