Kathy Griffin is an idiot

We don't need anything that gives sympathy to Trump and takes away from his conduct. She makes us all look bad

All his flaws remain and no one who knows what a bigoted, sexist, racist potus he is will be distracted and whine about how "our poor potus is so disrespected". Fuck that. He disrespects the Office of our Presidency. Fuck trump and his whole administration.

I'm probably a hypocrite for this but this stunt doesn't bother me a bit while the many Obama lynchings in effigy did bother me. Sarah Palin's target map that probably got Gabby Giffords shot bothered me. The mountains of shit they dumped on Hillary bother me.

But this? nah. If that makes me a hypocrite then I can live with being a hypocrite.

Sorry, but this liberal is not a WUSSY, and I won't allow thuglicans to pin what Griffin did on me, altough if that's what she wanted to do, then so be it.

I Didn't see all thuglicans take responsibility or say one damn word when Ted Nugent threatened Pres. Obama and Hillary Clinton over and over---and I might add he was just invited to the White House, courtesy of treasonous tRmputin.

Pres. Obama was an African-American, and I guess it was okay for thuglicans and right-leaning racists to insult him.

But oh no, Lord have mercy Jesus, Dems must not insult the WHITE, racist, paranoid, treasonous, snowflake who blames EVERYBODY but himself for his shit. tRumputin wants to destroy/defund/kill off Obamacare which will result in killing many who won't have any health care just so he can get billions in tax cuts for the rich like himself and his family, yet folks are upset over what GRIFFIN did, yet Ted Nugent was JUST invited to the White House?

28. "We hold ourselves to different standard than do lying, racist repukes."

You certainly have every right to your opinion, but I'm tired of FAKE thuglican outrage, and I call them on their BS when they go out acting all offended over what Griffin did. Where was that same outrage when there were pictures a plenty and films, and people showing up at events with Pres. Obama being hanged to DEATH by his neck in effigy? Nugent threatened him/Hillary several times--crickets. It's bad enough that thuglicans are a treasonous bunch--most not caring about the russia situation, or the treasonous actions of tRumputin and his grifting, rotten family.


Secondly, I kinda think that most of those out of the 24 million (Who are Dems with kids, who are elderly/poor/sick with a longterm illness) that the GOP and specifically tRumputin heartlessly keeps threatening to throw off their health care (De-funding it) if he has the chance--won't be too happy if Democrats KEEP holding themselves to such high and lofty standards while thuglicans in essence play with their lives. On a personal note, I have a friend (59) who recently found out that she has breast cancer again (Other breast this time), and I'm pretty sure she's not thinking about Kathy Griffin--just about whether tRumpitin's & the GOP'S JUSTGODDIE bill passes, or if her cancer treatment coverage is capped if she's battling cancer for an extended period of time--hell, if she can afford health care period because of her pre-exiting condition (cancer).



Those folks in the above video look mighty happy. Not thinking about Dems high standards for themselves or about who they could possibly be MURDERING with their JUSTGODIE health care bill. They sleep well knowing what's IN--and NOT in that tRumputin health care bill.

Well, they don't ..... Dems knuckle under too quickly, meanwhile giving thuglicans big passes. They sure can't shame thuglicans into not killing 24 million people.

I guess LBJ acting like scum at times means that we as Dems long ago should have rejected the great societal programs and his passing of Civil Rights legislation begun by JFK.

Like I say, we all have the right to our own opinions, and Dems are ceding too much to thuglicans, which is one of the reasons WHY we're in the mess we're in currently.

A bonified, real POTUS, Barack Obama, was insulted racially by many high in government constantly, not much push back about that as much as I see here concerning the boy who would be potus.

When they can show me THEIR outrage, and THEIR public apology for:

or



or any one of the MANY other examples of what was put out there showing President Obama being hung during their rallies after Obama's election, I'll give them some ground for solidarity in outrage on these kinds of expressions.

Also, let's keep this in context. Kathy's post was an expression just 2 days after two REAL people had their throats slashed as a result of Trump's rhetoric. I think I'll pick the REAL murders to express my own outrage on.

Personally, I do find it tasteless, but I'll be damned if I'm going to be roped into their hypocritical games. These, and the many other examples of what THEY did needs to be posted at every fucking place where they are "outraged, and disgusted".

But I'm not going to make Republican unpatriotic behavior the standard by which I measure my own ethics.

My views are not altered by Republicans' moral relativism. Inciting violence against an elected official is morally wrong, even if it's couched in a joke.

There aren't a lot of verbal taboos in a society with free speech. Kidding around about murdering our leaders needs to be one of those tattoos. Yes, even when they're assholes

I've never been a fan of Kathy Griffin because I don't think she's funny and her voice is like nails on a chalkboard. But the very people who are "appalled" by this latest stunt are the same ones who showed no respect to the Obamas for 8+ years.

I just read an article that said Barron saw it and freaked out. He's 11. IF he saw it, he's old enough to know it was fake. If he's not mature enough, then maybe his Internet time and television time needs to be more closely monitored. He's the son of a horrible man who continues to do inflict great harm on all of us. He may as well get used to people saying awful things about his father. It's not going to stop. 45 brought this on to his whole family. He's the one to blame.

95. what she did was gross and inappropriate, hanging Obama in effigy was gross and inappropriate

The key difference is that I heard a hell of a lot of hand-wringing and outrage about Kathy Griffin's (stupid) stunt in the MSM and absolutely no protest whatsoever about the Tea Party's (deadly serious) ones. (You just KNOW they would have done it in real life if they could have. It wasn't symbolic for them.) I never heard one damn thing about how hanging him in effigy was horrible and OMG and so upsetting to his daughters. Not one damn thing.

37. And beyond that, you don't show pictures of a murdered president. It's just not done

by civilized people, or people committed to a peaceful form of democratic government. It was wrong when it was done about Bush, when it was done about Clinton, when it was done about Obama.

I'm glad she apologized so quickly about it, but it's really quite inexcusable. I think CNN needs to dump her from its New Year's Eve coverage. Republicans may not respect the institution of the White House, at least not when Democrats hold the office. But I support the ideals of a republican form of government regardless of who holds the office.

For Republicans who don't understand the concept, it's called putting a country ahead of party.

75. You know what else isn't done?? The President telling rally attendees to beat up protestors.

 

The President calling on his rallies to mock and yell at the reporters.
The President calling a senator "crying Schumer."
A candidate mocking a disabled reporter
A candidate calling for us to kill the children of terrorists.
Etc.
Etc.
Etc.

Trump took the gloves off, so now they are off on him, too. Suddenly, the Republicans are all special snowflakes. Screw them.

92. I agree Trump is horrible. I disagree we should get down into the gutter with him

I remember the ridiculous display in 2016 of the establishment Republican candidates trying to beat Trump at his own game.

I have no problem with fighting hard or fighting creatively against Trump and is Neo fascist movement. in fact, I think we need to.

What we don't need to do is violate our own morality in the process. If it was wrong for Ted Nugent to incite violence against Obama, why would you think it's cool for someone on our side to do the same against Trump?

I don't think we want to validate Ted Nugent's approach to political discourse. Maybe you feel differently

38. She's certainly no idiot. Maybe overshot the mark this time, but no idiot.

And she's honest. I'd sooner see her behind the desk in the oval office than many gop. She probably knows more about the world than donald, and he'd have no problem reversing their places. He yells about beating people up on camera, proudly, in front of huge crowds.

Everyone's entitled to decide if they think she's funny. I think she's hilarious.

Bit she hasn't taken vital resources from the poor, made the world unsafe, made a mockery of our friends, collaborated with an adversary, killed anyone or many evil things. I'll take her over tRump any day.

Those of you whining about how "it doesn't make us look good" need to catch a clue. Our country is being looted by right-wing goons, the Democratic Party leadership doesn't seem to be capable of a meaningful response---time for us to register our dissatisfaction in no uncertain terms. I'm with Kathy.

every few years she does something "outrageous" that gets her name back on the news and in the tabloids.

53. Yep, not one step too far either but

Completely the opposite of funny, good taste etc. But sometimes comedy goes like that. The groaner. The max groaner, she may have a hard time recovering from this. Might lose the NYE spot and bookings, especially in Red States.

People out here - Americans! - are fearing for our lives!

If he is successful in all he is proposing - he will be responsible for more deaths and terror than ISIS ever dreamed of!

Kathy Griffin is not responsible for the death of civility in Politics - we can give a lot of thanks to Trump for that.. Griffin's stunt was theatre, Trump's stunts have real world implications. I don't understand the world anymore.

how to you keep your cred when colbert et al push the envelope nightly
you have to be more extreme than them

67. What is po'ing me about this stunt is that

it has damaged her as a spokesperson. She has done much good in advocating for women's healthcare. I just saw a tweet by some RW bottype spreading that Dems are violent and people are fleeing the party in droves because of it. They were using her graphics as part of their fake news data point.

But, like all edgy comedians, sometimes she just goes too far for good taste.

I didn't think this was all that bad. When you consider all of the absolutely awful stuff out there on the internet this was a tempest in a teapot.

what she did was comedy. All comedy is fair in it's context. This type of comedy only inspires sympathy in those who respect and care about this creature called our potus. NO ONE can look past how sexist, racist ,bigoted and stupid this potus is. No thinking person who wants country put first is going to be distracted by something like this, especially with the scandal(s) emerging about this creature called our potus.

9/11 widows by saying they loved that their husbands died so they could go on TV.

The GOP doesn't mind gallows humor as they have plenty of their own but, agreed, don't give them an opportunity to distract from the freak show they are putting on with the Russian mafia in the White House.
