First Lady Melania Trump responded to Kathy Griffin’s tasteless and disgusting photo of her holding up the head of President Donald Trump covered in blood. She did so very pointed and she’s right on, but it’s amazing how Kathy Griffin fell in the hole that she dug and is now blaming Trump for “ruining” her life.
“As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing,” said the First Lady. “When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.”

Yes, anyone that thinks that what Griffin did was funny has serious mental issues. It appears Griffin has them too. Just take a look at this apology.

Now, to be clear, she does say that she was wrong and crossed the line, but notice the caveat at the beginning of her apology. It was because of the backlash she received that she is apologizing. It was not because she actually thought she was doing anything wrong at the time and I wonder if she actually thinks that now or is she merely bowing to the pressure?
Let me show you the aftermath. Griffin went to a press conference and instead of being remorseful and repentant for what she did, she actually attacked Donald Trump claiming that he was trying to “ruin” her life after she put out a picture of him beheaded! Talk about making yourself the victim when you are the perpetrator!
“What’s happening to me has never happened in this great country,” she said. “A sitting president of the U.S. … is personally trying to ruin my life forever.”
“I don’t think I’ll have a career after this,” she added. “I’m going to be honest, he broke me.”
I’m sorry, but she broke herself.
Nevermind that she has tried to make his presidency a living hell.
Though she and her attorney claim that because of the reaction of Trump’s family she is receiving death threats and been vilified and lost jobs, the reality is that Griffin brought it on herself. What was she thinking? Is she so out of touch to think that photo was acceptable? While it may be in Islamic countries, it certainly is not here in America.
Griffin has been contacted by the Secret Service regarding the incident.
Griffin has lost a CNN deal after she put out the photos and CNN is no friend of Trump. So, who is to blame for that Kathy?
According to other reports, she has lost several sponsorship and gigs simply because she put the photo out.
Squatty Potty CEO Bobby Edwards said in a statement, “We have acted swiftly and decisively to demonstrate our commitment to a culture of decency, civility, and tolerance.”
Route 66 Casino Hotel posted on its Facebook page:
The performance by Kathy Griffin on July 22nd has been cancelled.Edit: Any guests that did purchase tickets will receive a full refund.
Her Celebrity Run-in tour has also been canceled at several venues.
This is what needs to happen. These people have called for decent and honest people to be shut down, lose businesses and pay hefty fines over simply holding to traditional Christian values in a culture that is losing its way. It’s high time people like Kathy Griffin paid the price for their own immorality. Her lashing out at Trump and his family over what really is her fault is telling about whether or not her apology is genuine.
