Is it impossible for liberals to learn?
You would think after the complete mess Kathy Griffin found herself in after her disgusting photo of President Trump’s severed head, she would have learned her lesson.
She appears to be doubling down on her hate-filled rhetoric of the President.
While President Trump gave a speech at a White House diabetes event, Griffin posted a tweet calling for the President to be killed using a syringe.
Here’s her immature tweet:
When the Washington Examiner tweeted that air embolisms, which are caused by air entering the bloodstream, can be fatal, Griffin had the following response:
Clearly, Kathy Griffin is some sort of deranged child trapped in an adult’s body.
Here’s more details from the Washington Examiner on Griffin’s tweet:
Kathy Griffin advocated plunging an air-filled syringe into President Trump.
Reacting to a tweet from CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, which said Trump pondered whether or not he should be given an insulin regimen at a White House diabetes event on Tuesday, the comedienne said: "Syringe with nothing but air inside it would do the trick. F--- TRUMP."
In medical procedures, air accidentally injected into the body's bloodstream through syringes or IVs can cause air embolisms, which can be fatal.
Within moments, Twitter users were remarking how Griffin can expect another visit from the Secret Service.
Griffin stirred controversy in 2017 when she held up a bloody prop of Trump's severed head in a photo shoot, a move which disrupted her career and prompted a visit from the Secret Service, according to her lawyers.
“I don’t think I will have a career after this,” Griffin told reporters in tears after the photo became public. “I’m going to be honest. He broke me.”
In response to a Washington Examiner tweet for this report, which noted that stabbing someone with a syringe filled with air could be fatal, Griffin said she "sure did" advocate for the president to be stabbed with one such device.
Griffin ended her quote tweet with "#TrumpLiedPeopleDied," a common social media hashtag used by the president's critics blaming him for a poor response to the coronavirus pandemic that has been tied to nearly 100,000 deaths in the United States.
Many were quick to react on Twitter, noting that Griffin has yet again crossed another line:
What’s truly disgusting is that Kathy Griffin appears to get by with this behavior relatively unscathed.
Could you imagine any conservative or Republican calling for a Democrat President’s death?
The media wouldn’t let it slide so easily!
Fortunately, the Chicago Tribune reports that Kathy Griffin did some long-term consequences for her infamous photo of the President’s head:
Kathy Griffin's uncle was a bagman. Her cousin was a priest who wore blue eyeshadow. Her favorite writer when she was a girl in Chicago was columnist Mike Royko. He hung up on her twice. But she never shut up, she just kept talking, telling stories, especially to the Bowens, who lived next door. They served cookies while Griffin dished family secrets and her mother, who enjoyed an occasional highball, watched in alarm.
Griffin has made a career out of speaking her mind. Her stand-up acts burst and flash like mortar rounds. But it's quiet these days in her big house in the Bel-Air hills. There is no work. Griffin has always worked. She's old-school, played Madison Square Garden and Carnegie Hall. She has two Emmys in her foyer. She made $75 million making people laugh. But the phone's not ringing and the silence skims bone.
It’s been two years since she raised a Halloween mask smeared with ketchup that depicted the severed head of President Donald Trump. The picture went viral. It shocked everyone from Sean Hannity to Anderson Cooper. She was vilified by the right and abandoned by Hollywood. The tabloids compared her to a terrorist. Strangers spat at her; friends disappeared. Death threats poured in, and the feds advised her not to stand too close to her mailbox.
"I'm still totally blacklisted," she said the other day, sitting in a red dress and taking stock of how a woman who starred on Bravo's "My Life on the D-List" fell precipitously to the "S" list. "No agency will touch me. No network will touch me. No streaming service will touch me. Nobody. And yet, I'm an earner. I've made them all money, and I'll make them money again. I have to dig myself out of this hole.”
Perhaps Kathy Griffin will learn her lesson this time. Then again, it’s not possible to teach the unteachable.
