CNN Cuts Kathy Griffin Following Trump Beheading Video

CNN has terminated their agreement with Kathy Griffin for her New Year’s gigs on the network with Anderson Cooper. After she aired the pic yesterday of the mock decapitated bloodied head of President Trump, a la ISIS style, it was too much even for CNN. Well, kind of. Notice they only cut her off for New Year’s… that’s not entirely. She should be fired with extreme prejudice over this stunt. In fact, she should be shunned by everyone for her despicable behavior. It was meant to shock and then she issued a faux apology that no one believes. That was part of her plan. The woman is simply depraved.

For Anderson Cooper’s part, he was horrified by what Griffin did and I believe his distaste is genuine here. “CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network’s communications department tweeted Wednesday morning. That move also took too long if you ask me. It should have happened yesterday. Did you know that President Trump’s son Barron saw that pic on the news and panicked and screamed thinking that was his daddy? That should never happen to any child.

From Breitbart:

CNN has terminated its relationship with Kathy Griffin after the comedian posed for a photograph while holding a fake, bloodied decapitated head meant to resemble the head of President Donald Trump.

“CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network’s communications department tweeted Wednesday morning.

Griffin had co-hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live broadcast each January since 2007 alongside the network’s lead anchor, Anderson Cooper.

Cooper took to Twitter late Tuesday night to say he was “appalled” by his co-host’s photo.

“For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in,” the Anderson Cooper 360 host wrote. “It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”

The shocking photograph, first published by TMZ Tuesday morning, was taken during a photo shoot conducted by the 56-year-old My Life on the D-List comedian and Los Angeles-based artist and photographer Tyler Shields, who is reportedly known for his provocative work.

The pic set Twitter fire on yesterday. People of every political stripe were appalled and called for the boycott of Griffin and her comedy tour. I’m sure she’s also getting a personal chat with the Secret Service, DHS and the FBI. Who knows… maybe she’ll wind up on the infamous ‘no fly’ list. ADT — the largest home security company in North America — announced it would pull its advertising from CNN over the photo, while the Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico announced it had cancelled Griffin’s upcoming performance, which had been scheduled for June 16th. All appropriate responses and it’s only the beginning of the end for Griffin. No sympathy here at all.

Melania Trump called the photo “very disturbing” and “simply wrong” in a statement today and indicated that Griffin was mentally unbalanced. I agree… that and the fact she has no morals, ethics and lacks a soul. She’s just vile. One last note, you know it’s bad when the Utah-based makers of Squatty Potty toilet stools state they are cancelling an ad campaign featuring the comic because of the “deeply inappropriate” image. When crap containers won’t even stand for your behavior… well… you get it.
