Kathy Griffin Takes Back Her Apology for Trump Decapitation Photo

Kathy Griffin is taking back her apology almost a year to the day after she posted a photo of her holding a decapitated photo of President Donald Trump

The legendary comedian, who was present for the White House Correspondent's Dinner this past weekend (and had quite a lot to say about it, as seen on her epic Twitter thread), stopped by The View on Monday morning to discuss why she is rescinding her apology.

“I take the apology back. And the sons, Don Jr. and Eric,or as I call them, Eddie Munster and Date Rape (she spoke similarly of them in our exclusive interview here). Look, I’m not holding back on this family. This president is different. And I have been through the mill."

"I wanted to make a statement about what a misogynist he is," she continued. "And also I remember the eight years of the photos of the Obama lynching, and nobody said anything. Right? That was all okay. Facebook. That was all on Facebook. People were going to rallies with pictures of Hillary’s head decapitated at Trump rallies.”

See the rest of her interview here.  Do you think she is smart for rescinding her apology right as her career is doing another major 180?

 My take: Kathy Griffin’s feathers are ruffled because Michelle Wolf is now more controversial. Of course whether you fine comedians funny is a matter of taste. For me, I don’t find either of them all that great.

Anybody who thinks the play-on-decapitation photo she and Tyler Shields put together should google the film of Daniel Pearl screaming as his head is sawn off. Then remember decapitation is now the proposed method of execution for gays in Muslim Indonesia.
