Comedian Kathy Griffin gave an interview to Politico this week in which she confesses being unable to book stand-up shows anywhere in the United States.
Incredibly, she blames Donald Trump – for commenting after his son, Barron, had a panic attack upon seeing Griffin’s sick beheading-of-Trump stunt on television.
“I think it would have been gone in a week without his tweet,” she says.
“Trump knows what would be perceived as something hysterical and he loves hysteria. There are millions of people who think I’m a member of ISIS to this day.”

Griffin added that she thinks Trump seized upon the photograph to “distract” from his then-recent firing of FBI director James Comey.
The photograph was met with widespread condemnation as Griffin was almost immediately fired from CNN, where she had hosted the network’s New Year’s Eve coverage for a decade, saw numerous stops on her cross-country tour canceled, and was questioned by the U.S. Secret Service.
In June, Griffin held a press conference with attorney Lisa Bloom in which she also blamed Trump for the reaction to the photograph and said she believed the backlash was sexist.
“It’s a bunch of white guys trying to silence me,” she said. “This wouldn’t be happening to a guy. This is a woman thing.”
Griffin told Politico she can no longer perform in the U.S. as a result of the backlash, but has found keen audiences overseas.
In case you need a refresher, Lisa Bloom is the lawyer who was bribing women to accuse Trump of sexual harassment.
