Remember how bad you seemed for comedian Kathy Griffin when CNN plummeted her from its New Year’s Eve show … merely because she had done a photo shoot in which she posed, ISIS-style, with President Trump’s bloody, severed chief?
Well, get ready to feel bad all over again, because Griffin’s still not done talking about it.
“[ Trump] utterly used me as a tool to distract from his bad news of the day.”https :// t.co/ AMXtKkxTUZ

Politico on Tuesday wrote a piece on” What happens when Trump targets you on Twitter” and included Griffin among those “targeted” by Trump … merely 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 old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

Griffin told Politico about the damage done to her career 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 fell as a celebrity endorser for Squatty Potty. The Secret Service launched an investigation. Today, she says she still can’t book a gig anywhere in the United States. Griffin blames the altered in her status to the president personally driving the outrage machine.“I think it would have been gone in a few weeks without his tweet, ” she acknowledged. “Trump knows what would be perceived as something hysterical and he desires hysteria. There are millions of people who envision I’m the states members of ISIS to this day.” …
… according to 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 applied me as a tool to distract from his bad news of the day.”
So she blames Trump’s tweet — and not her tasteless photo — for her job troubles. Maybe the photo shoot was just a bad mind?
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 psyche? These people are insane. https :// t.co/ ZlebOOQN7b
