I tried. I really, really, really, really, tried. Honestly. I wasn’t going to say anymore about it, but then she did this:

And then…I had to. I just had to respond. So here goes.

First, I can’t even fathom how she could stand there and seriously blame President Trump for the downfall of HER career. I was watching it, thinking, “Are we on the same planet?” I think not. Correct me if I’m wrong, but SHE was the one who decided to go public with the images of her holding a mock-up of President Trump’s bloodied, severed head. She KNEW she was going to catch hell for it. Anyone would have to have lived under a rock for the past year to not know that anyone who disrespects our President is going to anger quite a lot of people.

She did not look unsure of herself when she brought up her hand to show what she was holding in those pictures. She wasn’t smiling as though she were joking {as claimed}. She looked fucking serious to me. She knew what she was doing. She was faced with a choice and she made the wrong one. She didn’t care that President Trump’s 11-year-old son or his even YOUNGER grandchildren would potentially be upset or traumatized by her actions. She didn’t care.

I’m fucking sick of these people who think they can do whatever the hell they please, without regard for the people it might affect, and then go “Boo hoo” when they’re called out for it. She’s not sorry that she did it. She’s sorry because her terrible error in judgment didn’t translate very well to the rest of us. She’s sorry because her mental health came under question. She’s sorry because she can’t handle the fact that people likened her to an evil terrorist group. Most of all, she’s sorry that her actions resulted in being fired from CNN and her shows being cancelled. She has zero remorse for her part in all of this. President Trump and his family only responded to what she did and she now accuses them of “bullying” her. Puh-lease.

“…my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron.”

What’s this? In the aftermath of this week’s event, an article re-surfaced, containing a few choice things that Ms, Griffin said about President Trump. When asked what comedy would look like during a Trump Presidency, her answer was that, “we must go for all the absurdities. For me, that’s Trump and all things Trump. It’s not about trying to be an equal-opportunity offender anymore because Hillary got such a beat down. It’s his turn. So I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump, and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.”

Yeah…who’s being bullied here? You publicly admit that you’re going after Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son and then expect that he’s not going to do anything about that? Right. Parents do tend to be very protective of their children, in case you didn’t realize. Don’t pull the victim card here. You were the one who committed career suicide. You tried to cover it up by issuing a poor excuse of an apology, which none of us believed in the first place, and now you have confirmed that you didn’t mean it by holding a pathetic press conference.

Here’s some advice.

  • Own what you did.
  • Accept the consequences.
  • Attempt to understand that you, by your words and actions, disgusted a lot of people, disrespected our President and his family, and traumatized his son and grandchildren who are too young to understand such distasteful behavior.
  • Stop playing the victim of the situation you created.
  • And finally, please take some time to do some serious soul-searching; concentrate on what you’re lacking in your own life so that you can somehow become a better person instead of abusing your platform to bring misery and disgust to the masses.

I agree, you definitely are broken, but it wasn’t Trump or anyone in his family who broke you. What you did isn’t comedy {hint: it isn’t comedy when nobody’s laughing!}. What you did is indicative of a gross lack of caring for other people. You can’t only care about people who hold the same beliefs as you and attack everyone else. It doesn’t work that way. If anyone’s responsible for your being broken, it’s you. You tried to justify your actions as if you did nothing wrong.

“Normal people don’t go around destroying other human beings.”

There, I’ve said my peace.

Until next time…
