Clearly Kathy Griffin’s web-cam apology was too little, too late after headlines around the world conveyed the shock image of her holding up a faux severed head of President Trump.
Yesterday CNN announced that they would be ending their relationship with Griffin just as the Secret Service offered a reminder that it takes all potential threats seriously.
Meanwhile both the president and First Lady Melania Trump blasted Griffin for her ‘sick’ stunt, which reportedly left their 11-year-old son Barron upset after he first thought it was real.
The double-standard for liberals continues as the left-media is only reluctantly (and below the fold) reporting the story — apology leading, of course.
Here’s more from Daily Mail…
Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron reportedly saw his father’s severed head on television, courtesy of a shock-value photo shoot starring D-list comedian Kathy Griffin, and thought it was real.
First lady Melania Trump said that ‘[a]s a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing.’
‘When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.’
People close to the Trump family told TMZ that Barron panicked at the make-believe sight of his beheaded dad and screamed for his mother Melania.
‘He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad,’ one source said.
The president lashed out at Kathy Griffin on Wednesday morning, saying she ‘should be ashamed of herself’ for posting video of the photo shoot on social media.
‘My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!’ Trump tweeted.
Griffin apologized on Tuesday for posting the video following a furious backlash and a hint at an investigation by the U.S. Secret Service.
The controversial entertainer tweeted: ‘I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong.’
In the video Griffin is seen slowly raising Trump’s head during a photo shoot with infamous photographer Tyler Shields.
She also posted a video promising to remove the offending image after she was lambasted by all sides of the political spectrum, including Chelsea Clinton.
But the apology was not enough to stop the army of critics, both Trump supporters and Democrats from attacking Griffin on social media for the outrageous stunt.
Even her long-time New Years Eve co-host Anderson Cooper said he was ‘appalled’ by the photo shoot, which he described as ‘clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.’
Meanwhile, the Secret Service made an oblique reference to the controversy on Twitter, reminding everyone that any threats against the president are taken seriously.
