Griffin Depicts Bloodied, Beheaded President

31 May 2017

Kathy Griffin has went too far. Even the extreme left has its limit. In case you haven’t heard, here’s the story.

2017/05/30 – Kathy Griffin apologizes for photo shoot with bloodied Trump mask, says she ‘went too far’ – Fox News

Kathy Griffin admitted Tuesday she “went too far” on her latest photo shoot with controversial photographer Tyler Shields in which she is holding a bloodied mask of President Trump.

After the backlash started… the she Tweeted…

“I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong.”

The photographer is Tyler Shields.

Shields told Fox News that Griffin was hoping to create a bold message.


Shields added the image was meant to serve as art and he’s aware that it could make some viewers uncomfortable.

“That’s what art is meant to do,” he said. “Some people look at it and they love it. Some people look at it and they hate it… I understand there are going to be people that hate this. It’s a very touchy subject… but this is not real. We didn’t kill anybody nor do I feel anybody should be killed. It’s no different from a movie. It just happens to be a still image.”

In their minds, this is art, and an edgy message. Depicting an image of a bloodied beheaded U.S. president is art and an edgy message.

Many people really need to get a grip… particularly the news media, the actors, the people disappointed from the election, and those paid by and/or aligned with George Soros. Trump has been president for four months. There have been numerous protests, numerous acts of political violence towards those who supported Trump, numerous investigations without evidence of crimes, and he has no room to operate. Now I understand Trump does stir the pot as well, but I take that as responsive more than proactive. Throw in the deep state in the government who are against what he stands for.

Whatever you think about Trump, he affects everyone in this country. I can see if what he implements does not work. But what if does work? What if it does put more people to work once everything is in place? What if blacks and minorities in inner cities fare better?

The chaos in this country is not on Trump. The chaos is on the groups I mentioned earlier. They are putting out the message. They are organizing the protests. They are still investigating without evidence of crimes. That’s not Trump. And now we have Griffin’s demented nonsense.

So much for putting country first. Many would be OK burning the country down and turning it into Venezuela in order to get what they want. Where are the adults in this country?

If Kathy Griffin wants to resemble a functioning, mentally stable adult, she should directly apologize to Trump and his family. She and the photographer displayed a TOTAL lack of perspective with this nonsense.
