Kathy Griffin Blames the Trumps for Career Downfall

Kathy Griffin Blames the Trumps for Career Downfall

Comedian Kathy Griffin, who posed with a fake bloodied and severed head depicting U.S. President Donald Trump, will hold a news conference in Los Angeles on Friday to discuss her reasons for participating in the photo shoot. "He's a bully. I've dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole life, my whole career".

Griffin reiterated the apology she posted on social media late on Tuesday, but remained defiant, saying, "I'm not afraid of Donald Trump, he's a bully", adding that she meant to continue making jokes about the president.

Speaking on Friday, Griffin insisted it was a parody meant to address Mr Trump's remark previous year that former Fox News presenter Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of wherever". It's in your face. "I'm going to be honest, he broke me", she cried.

"I'm not going to be collateral damage for this fool", Griffin said.

"As a result of the first family bullying her, she has been vilified, getting death threats, fired from multiple jobs and had multiple events canceled", Bloom said.

"He broke me", Griffin added while describing the "personal attacks".

The Secret Service has opened an investigation into the creepy photo and video Griffin tweeted Tuesday, forcing the comic to hire a criminal defense attorney to handle any charges.

"Kathy did not forget that disgusting remark", the lawyer said, explaining that it prompted her to team up with a photographer to show "what it would look like if his own insults were turned on him".

"Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself", the president wrote on Twitter.

The 56-year-old comedian addressed the room of reporters, and even though she stated that the apology she made earlier this week "still stands", she does think that Trump is targeting her.

Griffin said it's clear to her that the president and his family are trying to use her as a distraction. Trump tweeted Wednesday morning: "My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this".

"This Kathy Griffin press conference was an utter dumpster fire", Malkin said.

Asked if she thought she would have a career after this flap, Griffin noted that she feels it's all over.
