Kathy Griffin Says Donald Trump and Family Are Trying to Ruin Her Career

Kathy Griffin said that President Trump and his family are “personally trying to ruin my life forever,” in the wake of a controversial photo shoot in which she held up a mask that resembled Trump’s severed head.

Trump and his family members tweeted their upset over the image, and Griffin said that she has been subjected to a constant stream of death threats. Her attorney, Lisa Bloom, suggested that it was an attempt to silence the free speech rights of a comic who makes provocative and critical political humor.

“What’s happening to me has never happened in this great country,” Griffin said during a press conference Friday, referring to Trump and his family members’ tweets in response to the photo shoot.

“I don’t think I will have a career after this,” she said, as she started tearing up. “I am going to be honest, he broke me. He broke me. And then I felt, ‘This isn’t right. This is not right. And I apologized because that was the right thing to do an I meant it.”

GOP Tries to Turn Kathy Griffin’s Trump Stunt Into Political Liability

Her appearance at the Bloom firm was the first since Tuesday, when she issued a video apology for the images that she acknowledged went “too far.”

At the conference, Griffin reiterated “that apology absolutely stands. I feel horrible.”

She was at times emotional and tearful and times threw in a few quips, like when she said that her mother “is not speaking to me because she is in love with Tucker Carlson.”

But she also was defiant, insisting that the backlash would not have happened to a male comedian, and vowing to continue with the Trump humor.

The president, she said, “picked the wrong redhead.”

“I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He’s a bully,” she said. She said that “it was quite clear to me” that Trump and his family “are trying to use me as a distraction.”

Bloom said that Griffin has been contacted by the Secret Service and that she has retained a criminal attorney, Dmitry Gorin. He called it “outrageous” that a comic should be subject to a criminal investigation, and called on the Secret Service to close the case.

Since Griffin did her photo shoot and posted the images to her Twitter account, CNN has dropped her from its New Year’s Eve coverage, a decade-long tradition in which she has hosted from Times Square with Anderson Cooper. On Thursday night, Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said that it would “be better” for her not to appear at a planned July 7 event in Beverly Hills in which they were to hold a conversation about his new book.

“I have had everyone turn on me, but I just want to make people laugh,” Griffin said.

Griffin said that she has had five tour dates cancelled, and quipped that the “most ironic” was a casino in Albuquerque.

Griffin said that she had worked with the photographer, Tyler Shields, before, and admired some of his more provocative works. She said that in doing the shoot with the mockup of Trump’s head, she knew she would get flack but “I didn’t think people would threaten to murder me or mobilize people to murder me.”

The incident has made its way into a political race in Georgia. A GOP SuperPAC produced an ad that tries to link Jon Ossoff, a Democratic candidate seeking a congressional seat in a special election, to Griffin. Ossoff’s campaign condemned Griffin and called on his Republican opponent, Karen Handel, to ask that it be pulled.

At the press conference, Bloom chided Trump for what she called misogynistic remarks against women, and also blasted his budget cutbacks, the pullout of the Paris climate accord and attacks on Planned Parenthood.

It underscored her point that Griffin’s humor fell well within protected speech, calling the photo shoot a “parody” of Trump’s “own sexist remarks.”

She said that “for the first time in history” a sitting president was making “a personal attempt to ruin a comedian.”

“The message was clear: Criticize the president, lose your job,” she said.

Bloom, too, said that there was a double standard that applied to female public figures versus male public figures. She cited male musicians who have used violent imagery or statements about the president, and said, “Ted Nugent threatened to kill President Obama. President Trump invited him to the White House.”

    I hope she gets audited every year for the rest of her life. How would she feel if someone did this to her?

  2. Donald Smith says:

    Hey Kathy want to impress me ? Then meat with the president and is family and apologize to their faces.

  3. Lillian says:

    You apologize then criticize him. I couldn’t stand Obama but I thought it was ok that you liked him. I love my president. The obstructionists are the only ones that show hate but accuse President Trump of speaking hate. Trump isn’t trying to end your career, you did that on your own. You were never funny to me before so now you are just pathetic. Apologize with a humble heart and then shut up and people will forgive it and accept you again. Everyone makes mistakes but ripping him after apologizing just doesn’t work.

  4. Mindy says:

    I thought we had this thing called free speech…Donald trump uses free speech with his Twitter account talking smack about everyone else…I laughed at what she did. .didnt bother in the least..we all have opinions and we all have a right to express. .the hate groups in this country who parade and stand and preach their hate and say whatever and that’s ok..but If one person expresses their haterd of trump that’s a big deal?..so freedom of speech can not apply to the select few but to ever single American. .

  5. SusyQ says:

    What exactly do you believe he’s doing to poor Kathy? Please inform us all! Thanks!

  6. Steve Duggan says:

    It was a bad taste joke, got it wrong. Sadly Trump is bully and will not let it drop. He is a poor excuse for a Leader. A true leader would have accepted the apology and shown compassion, not Trump. He is a danger to us all.

    • Mindy says:

      Well suzyq why don’t you ask the old lady whom he tried to kick her out of her home in alantic city because he wanted her house and she said no. ..he lost that battle but yeah ask her ..

    • mcgwynne says:

      What has he or his family done to her???
      Mrs. Trump even suggested she get some help.

      It’s all in her mind. The self victimhood the self aggrandizement.

      It’s all in her mind because the whole thing is about her.

    • Karen says:

      You obviously got your timeline in reverse! Trump responded, as he had a RIGHT to, BEFORE she issued that piss-poor excuse of an “apology”. The only one refusing to let it go is Griffin, herself..why? Because she read the writing on the wall..she had essentially flushed her already flailing career down the toilet with her abhorrent little stunt. In true liberal fashion she spewed a “statement” out there, sans ANY factual basis, and expects everyone to just swallow it as truth. WHERE/when have ANY of the Trump’s “bullied” her, or any “old white men”..all hyperbole, no FACTS. Also reading from the Libs “When caught, deflect, deny, lie, assume the “victim” role”…in an act purely out of desperation she’s accused HER victim of being the perp…SMH. One of the biggest lessons a parent can teach their child is to OWN their mistakes. ..to atone for them. Sadly, Griffin’s parents either failed to teach, or enforce, that important life lesson!

  7. Anonymous says:

    President Trump and his family didn’t ruin Kathy Griffin’s career, she ruined it herself by putting a horrible bloody head of our President Donald J. Trump on national TV. Stop complaining about them, you ugly troublemaker freak!

  8. Awwww– just put her in a room for a few days and make her watch her own video and the press conference ala “Clockwork Orange”. Scroll all the comments to the many articles about her publicity- stunt-gone-awry across the screen. Her hateful, hurtful, asinine comments and “always insulting or demeaning someone” shtick just came back to bite her. Griffin has no one to blame but herself. She is the poster child on how to double up on being obliviously -or purposely- inappropriate. Despite her whining, Griffin is not the first person, or comic, to lose their employment, support, compensation or sponsors because of their poor judgement . And the Secret Service routinely investigates these things. How can you defend any “bullied victim” who has made a career out of ignoring the feelings of others for personal gain? It is never right to do the wrong thing, regardless of who does it. Actions have consequences.

  9. kevin says:

    Her career has been over for a LONG time now, as she stopped being funny a LONG time ago. She has been handed more opportunities than so many talented people in Hollywood and she didn’t deserve them. Given a stand up comedy show, didn’t go anywhere…..given a TV show on E!, tanked….Took over for Joan Rivers red carpet show when she died, tanked…. This was a publicity stunt that didn’t work out as well as she hoped.

  10. Denise Goldman says:

    “He broke me.” Classic line. Absolutely love it.

  11. Kelly Snider says:

    I’ve searched and searched and can’t find anything on what the Trump’s have said or done to her or about her. Where’s the proof that he or his family have done anything? Just because the public is lashing out at her doesn’t mean he or his family is. Does anyone have a credible link to what they have done?

    • Denise Goldman says:

      There is none. Griffin the bully is trying to play the victim. It’s not working.

      • Susan says:

        Kathy jus can’t admit she fked up and now she’s trying to worm her way out of it, by turning it all on Trump. Never liked the woman nor do I care for her as a comedian if that’s the call her doing. She’s a disgrace for us women and if any woman stands behind her is no better than she is. I can stand on my own. Don’t need any one Marching women rights for me.

  12. Wallyg says:

    Now Griffin plays the victim? Her career ended more than a decade ago! Move on, get a real estate license, sell used homes to your star friends.

  13. caffeineator says:

    Fire Bloom. She is going to torpedo this wacko for ever.

  14. Kateryna says:

    Kathy griffin ruined her career if you want to call it that. She said she received death threats. What is holding a severed head of president trump ? I would take it as a death threat !!!
    It’s free speech Kathy. Everyone should be able to express their distaste to her photo shoot. And I resent you using your gender as the reason
    As a woman and a patriot I take offense of you’re very existence
    Stop your whining Kathy and crawl back into the hole you belong in

  15. Juan Cardenas says:

    So now she is playing to be the victim? Really? In a free country like ours, the limit of our freedom is marked by the consequences of our actions. Free speech is great, I love it, but one needs to be ready to live with what follows. Can you imagine anyone doing the same holding President Obama’s head? No one has done it because it’s the wrong thing to do. It hurtful, full of unchecked hate and immaturity! No one should do that in the name of free speech!

  16. cj says:

    she did this to herself with something that most sane people would find offensive and disturbing on all levels, she should be fired and most of all be ashamed to frighten a child simply because you do not like their father is inexcusable in any instant, and I think she needs psychiatric help considering she even contemplates what she did as a joke considering the world is riddled with terrorists showing of severed heads of murdered innocent people is this any different to what she did not in my eyes,

  17. Nena Indem says:

    Everyone boycott Kathy Griffin.

  18. holly says:

    Kathy – your histrionics are sickening You are sucking this face time..what do they say..any press time is better than none. What you did is sickening. But, a much bigger problem is “Hollywood Stars” giving their opinions. You have one job – your job. It is not your job to try to influence millions of Americans because of your position. Wake up America. The politicians want us divided. That way, they always have an excuse that they can’t get anything done. Low wages, not our problem. No jobs, not our problem. International relations, not our problem. Aging infrastructure, not our problem. No facilities for drug addicts, not our problem. Horrific care for our elderly, not our problem. It’s time to get it together..we agree to disagree, but come to viable compromises that will benefit all of us. Or hell be damned on all of us.

    • Nena Indem says:

      Holly I couldn’t of said it better. You are so right. Thank you for speaking up. God bless you.

  19. R says:

    Like the teen who commits arson in front of his peers in order to be acclaimed “the MOST OUTRAGEOUSLY HIP” but whose audience cringes with revulsion…Griffin tried to outdo everyone else seeking the CROWN of most outrageously hip knock on Trump….instead ….she’s finished and alone…the hip liberals were deeply offended and have moved on.

  20. Erin says:

    Oh, for Gods sake.
    Kathy Griffin , no one is trying to ruin your career. How did you and Lisa come up with that one? People would have thought more of you had you just apologized for your tasteless prank and moved on. Now because a few of the Trumps commented on how disgusting it was , you say they are out to get you. Hahahaha. You are embarrassing yourself and sound like a petulant child. And now your disappointed with Anderson Cooper? You have issues.

  21. M. J. Street says:

    Kathy Griffin bullies under the guise of comedy. Now she is counter attacking claiming she was bullied to defend her inexcusable political comedy!!! I saw this among unruly children during the 30 years that I taught in the public school school system. When will the bullying stop. Half of Hollywood has gone crazy. Just because they are loaded they think that they have the right to do whatever they want whenever they want to. Kathy and all of her cohorts are constantly fighting against bullying but are the disgusting bullies themselves. She should feel the wrath of the American public!!!

  22. Samuel Davis says:

    Ha ha. Watching Griffin’s professional suicide is the funniest material she has ever done. All her tour dates are cancelled, CNN and the bowel movement sponsor have dropped her, and real Americans despise her. Ha ha….she’s getting what she deserves.Tooooooooooooo funny!

  23. Bill B. says:

    This is what the world is concerned about?! It was tasteless, but he’s a horrible human being who most certainly does not bring out the best in people. And there are certainly so many more important things going on right now to be outraged about. I assume the outrage is mostly from the deplorables incomprehensibly protecting their illegitimate and criminal leader.

    • Rachel vaughan says:

      Are you really this stupid?……No, really?! Didn’t her crap bring up thoughts and images of Nick Berg? His “deplorables” as u call them, are half the country. I used to beleive that being a liberal meant that we had a voice and thst we respected the outcome of things like elections. All I see coming from the left, is violence, intolerance and refusal to hear anyone else’s ideas but your own. Donald Trump is The president of the United States. Clinton did not win. He is your president, like it or not. Kathy griffen is an idiot with no heart or care for anyone’s feelings.

    • David B says:

      You don’t see how hilarious this is? Her complaining of death threats after she made one to the most powerful man in the world? LOL
      What makes Liberal Progressive’s think THEY can DO one thing, then NOT expect to get it back?

      • kevin says:

        The new progressive democrat party will continued to spread as many falsehoods as they can about Trump and the republican party so that they can win congressional seats in the next election, regardless if it tears this country apart, ends peoples careers, or starts a civil war. It is about politics and power, not about the people of this country or the harm they inflict.

      • Nena Indem says:

        You are so right Samuel. Thanks for speaking up. Our best to you.

    • Samuel Davis says:

      You seem very unhappy about living in America Bill! May I suggest you purchase a one way ticket to Iran or Syria…..I’m sure you’d be much happier there. We “Deplorables” won, and that is something you should deal with. I despised the foreign born Muslim who soiled the White House for 8 years, but I never did anything as disrespectful towards him as Griffin has done. She committed professional suicide, and it was the most humorous thing she has ever done.

  24. Ben says:

    I run a fairly large media brand in NYC where most of working here are pretty liberal, and not one person here would or could condone the video…nor rationally agree with her bullying claims either. Kathy is a talented person for sure, but has essentially ruined her career of her own free will, and there really isn’t anyone else that is responsible for that, save for her. This was suggesting a level of uber-violence against another human being and their family. The Bill of Rights does guaranty her freedom of speech, but that does not mean that the entertainment industry will support her as an artist any longer, which they likely will not. President Trumps son, kids and grandchildren were all rightly either scared or scarred by this, and that simply cannot be tolerated.

  25. Betsy says:

    Kathy Griffin’s presser hurt her more. She should not have done it. It’s like kicking a dog and when the dog bites back, blaming the dog.

  26. BathhouseBarry says:

    Can you imagine if this was done to obama and his daughters were mocked for believing it?

  27. MrsV says:

    For Kathy Griffin’s comment: “You don’t have to like me, but you shouldn’t silence a comic.”
    That press conference had just deepen the insults to the public.

    Wrong Kathy. Nobody can silence a comic. Proof: YOU – did not stop talking and blaming others for your own behaviors. Dear, you started it.

    People don’t silence a comic. Nobody broke you. People put the VALUES of their hard earned moneys where they deem a worthy comedian.

    Btw, I did not vote for Trump.

  28. Heinrich Gulfstein says:

    She cries out in pain as she strikes you. She also is great at lying, using her words to manipulate the who thing. I Wonder what it is about her that would have her acting this way.

  29. Becky says:

    “The Trump family is using me as a distraction?” What a ridiculous statement when anyone with any sense at all knows you did this 100% for the publicity to boost your sagging career. Well, you got it. Now live with it.

  30. Joanne Nasta says:

    Our First Attendant protects everyone including editorial cartoons, commentaries, comedic puns, and rants, etc. Personal reactions, personal taste, and Ms. Griffin’s photo are not the issue. The larger more important compelling problem is Censorship and the Administration’s actions.

    What is next?

    Protests taking part in today’s, 6/3/2017, march calling on President Donald Trump to release his tax returns get audited by the IRS?

    Enough is enough, one of the many things that Make America Great is Democracy! Free Will and Free Speech!

    • David B says:

      Did you complain when Obama did that to Republicans? It’s well documented. Or when Obama had the federal government go after conservatives trying to create tax exempt groups? Don’t be a whiner and complain when YOU do something, then complain when you GET IT BACK from your target.

    • Atilla Thehun says:

      She has the right to free speech. I am not protected from being offended. Unfortunately, the left think free speech is good for their POV but, wow, do they bellyache when they are offended. I’m exercising a different right – the one to avoid looking at or listening to her. See: Dixie Chicks

    • David says:

      You’re a moron.

      A Death threat is not 1st AMMENDMENT protected.

      What she did was foul, wrong, STUPID, idiotic and ILLEGAL!

      She should have a muzzle put on her for life. And while they’re at it, throw a muzzle on the entire cast of the Soup…you people are losing your fukkkking minds, you’re all psychotic and I want none of you anywhere near my children. There is no censorship going on you whiny little turd, if there were censorship she would be in jail right now.


  31. Typical loud mouth washed up has been loser wannabee liberal comedian looking for attention. None of what she did is surprising. It is typical of “their” kind.

  32. Sally says:

    After all she did then she has a nerve to call for a press conference. Telling it to the world that she is a victim. What a pathetic idiot!

  33. newbodyhopes says:

    The woman is an absolute idiot without an iota of self awareness. She simply cannot take any blame. I hope she’s finished.

    • Gina says:

      Her comment of criticize the president lose your job. Well, she did more than criticize him. I see what she did as a terroristic threat. Not sure how she thought that could be funny. She’s to blame for her career being jeopardized. She’s not funny and never was.

  34. Whatever says:

    From someone who’s voted Democrat and Republican (I’m independent). I’m really disturbed by how left has lost their scruples. If we forgive her than we are okay with kkk leader “being themselves” because I really don’t see repentance.

    Of course his family is going to call her out. Her mother would do the same for her.

    I love how people are defending kathy’s severed head mock by comparing it to KKK leaders and right wing nuts that talked about hanging our former black president. “See… see what they did… where was the outrage” well if I remember correctly everyone that was a decent human was outraged! Including myself. Justification of terrorist type behavior is WRONG. And trump talking about someone doesn’t give a pass to do an isis type stunt. Bottom line. When I voted for Obama my family hated his politics but nobody went as far as left celebrities have went. Disgusting

  35. Jim says:

    Didn’t we cover this already? Just a little ditty, by many of the original authors of the 1st amendment.

    Alien and Seditions Act of 1798:

    The laws prohibited the publication of “false, scandalous, and malicious writings against the government of the United States, or either house of the Congress of the United States, or the President of the United States, with intent to defame…or to bring them…into contempt or disrepute; or to excite against them…hatred of the good people of the United States, or to stir up sedition within the United States, or to excite any unlawful combinations therein, for opposing or resisting any law of the United States, or any act of the President of the United States”.

    Whoops! Good luck with that, Kathy.

  36. dbk636466 says:

    We still love you Kathy Griffin…you are awesome…you keep on pushing that envelope…Trump is evil and what you said and did in one moment of time is nothing compared to all that this putz has said and done to others throughout his 70+ years on this planet…God willing he will be removed from office by the end of this year.

  39. yheitman says:

    Wow this attorney of hers Lisa Bloom sure gave her the wrong advice about what she should have done. She should have just quietly disappeared for a while and things would have died down. No, instead Kathy and her attorney double down on stupid and take no responsibility for anything Kathy did. Kathy blamed old white men, blamed the Trumps, blamed them as bullies and said her career was over. NONE of it was her fault according to her. No sense of responsibility. Just the blame game by Kathy and her absolutely disgusting attorney. If you insisted on having a press conference it should have been an apology to Barron Trump, the Trump family and ANYONE who was offended by the photo. I was offered by the photo because when I saw it I thought right away about Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg and James Foley who were all beheaded by ISIS. I thought of the pain the family would feel if they saw the photo. It was brutal and ugly and we do not, or are not supposed to be of the same ilk as ISIS. It was such a stupid move she made and anyone with half a brain would have realized it and just not done it.

  40. Kelly Bradford says:

    Call me old fashioned that I have never found Kathy Griffin entertaining or funny but vile , disturbing and sick is the only way I can truly describe her and this was before the President Trump Photo. Seeing a severed head on television, regardless of whose head is disturbing to see or even hear about. Now you have a comedian doing this for the publics entertainment and if she was anyone else and put that out there for the public the police would be looking for her but she’s a well known comedian although a sick and immature comedian and I guess anything will pass as funny if you’re in the right circles and with the right amount of money but I don’t care who you are Kathy Griffin. Save all of your apologies and do us a favor…don’t go away mad just go away!!!

    • BathhouseBarry says:

      Your derangement is Hilarious

    • Gina says:

      UnAmerican. How untrue. He’s an absolute American and NOT a politician. He’s here for the American people and is an awesome American role model. Kathy not so much. Holding a severed head is not an American role model. It’s a role model from another area of this world and I’m sure you know where I mean. He won the election, get over it and used to him around for a long time. He’ll win the next election too!

  43. Ilan says:

    Anyone else notice that this is a (successful) plea for attention by Ms. Griffin?

  44. Clarke Hammond says:

    Kathy is clearly a lunatic. Not real funny. Mean. Sad little clown lady.

  45. “The message was clear: Criticize the president, lose your job,” she said.
    The most ridiculous comment by Bloom…. he is the most criticized president in history, and if this were true, tens of thousands of jobs would be lost all over the country! Griffin chose to make the photo, publish the photo and, in doing so, made a choice to bear the public outrage about the photo… what strikes me is that people from all political persuasions, male & female, all races and backgrounds are unified in being offended and criticizing her…. she is her own worst enemy…

  46. Bold&Beautiful&Thoughtful says:

    What is the difference between Ms Kathy Griffin and the man, Pres. Donald Trump, she makes fun of?

    Many would say he is a vulgarian…She is a vulgarian. Many have said he is loud and obnoxious…She is loud and obnoxious. He made pu–y jokes, She makes lots of pu–y jokes. Many say he won by being a provocateur. She is a provocateur. He loves money and power. She loves money and popularity. Some would say he, Donald Trump, is an obnoxious vulgar attention seeking power-hungry male Republican. Some would say she, Kathy Griffin, is an obnoxious vulgar attention seeking popularity-hungry female Democrat.

    The only difference in their psychology and behavior is that he is a man and a Republican, while she is a female and a Democrat.

    No other difference!

  47. Simeon Done says:

    Look at her crying about being victimized. What goes around comes around. How many people has she poked fun at and made jokes about and tried to destroy, without a thought to the harm she inflicts. Well, maybe she will not be such a judgmental cow now.

  48. She jumped the shark now, She should have just kept quiet and let the news cycle just let this story fade away… but she chose to go on the attack, blaming everyone but herself for this situation. YOU’RE NOT A ‘VICTIM’ KATHY GRIFFIN of a “Older White Guy”! Judging by this new response, you’ve likely spent your career playing the victim card , or woman card, or lesbian card when you’ve failed to meet your obligations or goals. “I am the storm”… Give me a break, say that in my neighborhood, you basketcase..

  49. Sam says:

    Talk about conspiracy, why would Marilyn Monroe ( her house just sold)
