Comedian Kathy Griffin-better known as that one chick that gets drunk with Anderson Cooper every New Year's Eve-set the Internet on fire when she released photos from a recent photo shoot. Ordinarily that wouldn't be anything to get people riled up, except THIS photo shoot involved Kathy Griffin holding the severed, bloody head of President Donald J. Trump:
Kathy Griffin wants Donald Trump's head ... but she wants it bloody and detached from his body.Many were shocked and appalled at the graphic content of Kathy Griffin's photos. The reaction on social media was swift and brutal as thousands condemned Kathy Griffin's actions.
The comedian posed for the gory shot during a photo session with famed photog Tyler Shields, who's known for edgy, shocking pics. We got the pic before the release.
During the photo shoot, Kathy joked that she and Tyler would need to move to Mexico once the pics got released, for fear they'd be thrown in prison.
I hope Kathy Griffin enjoys the time she's about to spend with the Secret Service...Probe deep gentlemen...What a waste of oxygen.— Sean McGill (@Brutal669x) May 31, 2017

Ugly on the inside as well as out. She should ask GOD for forgiveness but most likely she'll be dancing with the devil. https://t.co/bGDrQvpyCj
Kathy Griffin makes ISIS death threats to President Trump and she works for CNN. @CNN is encouraging the assassination of our president!— Makada 🇺🇸 (@_Makada_) May 30, 2017
Hey @CNN - will Kathy Griffin be hosting your New Year's Eve show again? Your advertisers would like to know. pic.twitter.com/ngzHbBcPhN— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) May 30, 2017
Conservatives and normal people who find this kind of "art" more offensive than edgy kept the pressure up throughout the day. Kathy Griffin was disavowed by no less than Chelsea Clinton AND the Church of Satan:Why hasn't @CNN issued a statement to disavow their New Year's Eve special host Kathy Griffin for her threats against the U.S. President? pic.twitter.com/VbrSsBwlbI— Stefan Molyneux (@StefanMolyneux) May 30, 2017
When you've lost the Church of freaking Satan you KNOW you've gone too far. The Route 66 Casino, the site of a July 22nd appearance by kathy Griffin, tweeted that they would be canceling said appearance:Chelsea Clinton and the Church of Satan have disavowed Kathy Griffin.— Mike Cernovich (@Cernovich) May 30, 2017

Kathy Griffin herself took to Twitter Tuesday evening to issue an apology:The July 22nd performance by Kathy Griffin has been cancelled.— Route 66 Casino (@RT66CasinoHotel) May 30, 2017
This whole episode just goes to show how desperate Kathy Griffin is for attention. Griffin hasn't been at the forefront of the public consciousness for years. Certainly not since her TV show and her talk show were canceled. Ask anyone you know who Kathy Griffin is and I'll guarantee you'll get a blank stare, followed by "oh, isn't she that lady that does New Year's Eve with Anderson Cooper?" Griffin needed a way to get the public talking about her again, and she chose the most vile, disgusting way to do it. The problem is it appears to have backfired on her. Not only are the venues hosting her live shows feeling the pressure, CNN is starting to come under fire for having Griffin on their payroll as well. Of course the question is whether or not CNN will fire Kathy Griffin or stand by her.I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong. pic.twitter.com/LBKvqf9xFB— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) May 30, 2017
In the end, however, we should all be thanking Kathy Griffin. Her little stunt has shown us exactly what the face of the New Left, and by extension the Democrat party, is. The people who find a celebrity holding the severed head of a sitting president funny are the same people who think that beating someone for disagreeing with them is acceptable political discourse. These are the people that the Democrat party has decided to cater to in the wake of their defeat by Donald Trump. The extreme Left sees Kathy Griffin's photo shoot and celebrates it. They'll praise Griffin as "edgy," "bold," "decisive," etc.
Normal people, however, will look upon Griffin's photo shoot with horror. It's one thing to hate Donald Trump. It's quite different to hold up his severed head in an ISIS-style photo shoot. They'll look at the photo shoot, and the leftists celebrating said photo shoot, and move further away from the Left in general, and the Democrat party in particular. Normal people don't want to be thought of as extreme. What's more extreme than blatantly calling for the death of the current president as Kathy Griffin has done?
Kathy Griffin's little stunt, whether pre-planned or not, has come at the worst possible moment for Democrats and the Left. Personally I welcome stunts like this. Go ahead, Leftists, be as extreme as you want. Keep exposing who you really are for the American people. You're only digging yourselves a deeper hole.
