Kathy Griffin isn’t out of the woods yet. Her horrible picture of herself holding Trump’s severed head prompted a visit from the Secret Service who grilled her for over an hour.
The Daily Mail reports:
Secret Service ‘questions Kathy Griffin for over an hour’ as it probes provocative photo stunt showing her holding ‘Trump’s’ decapitated head
Actress and comedian Kathy Griffin was questioned by the Secret Service over the photo of her holding the decapitated and bloodied head of ‘President Donald Trump’, it was reported on Tuesday.
Griffin was interviewed by the Secret Service for over an hour, according to journalist Yashar Ali.
The investigation is ongoing.
Last month, her Los Angeles-based lawyer, Dmitry Gorin, told reporters that his client intends to fully cooperate with the probe, which he feels is unnecessary.
‘She basically exercised her First Amendment rights to tell a joke,’ he told The New York Times.
‘When you look at everything in the media, all the times entertainers make videos or express themselves in other ways, you’ve never seen an entertainer, let alone a comedian, be subject to a criminal investigation.’
Griffin tearfully apologized last month for posing with a fake bloodied and severed head depicting Trump, saying that she felt her career was now over and that Trump ‘broke’ her.
The investigation is ongoing, too. That means she could be questioned again. It also means that she’ll be toxic for much longer. Entertainment outlets won’t want to get anywhere near her.
Just remember that she did this to herself.
