Kathy Griffin is in the news today because of a disgusting photo she posted on Twitter of herself holding President Trump’s severed head.
Senator Al Franken has an event scheduled with Griffin in July. Will he cancel it?

Franken Pushed To Cancel Event With Griffin After Beheaded Trump Pic
The chair of the Minnesota Republican Party is asking Sen. Al Franken to cancel a promotional event for his book after a comedian slated to be part of the event appeared in a photograph with a simulacrum of President Donald Trump’s severed head.
Kathy Griffin posed for the photo as part of a shoot with L.A.-based photographer Tyler Shields, according to TMZ.
Franken is scheduled to promote his new book, “Al Franken: Giant of the Senate,” with Griffin in an event on July 7 in Beverly Hills.
Republican Party Chair Jennifer Carnahan released a statement Friday calling on Franken to cancel the event.
“Surely, Senator Franken values the physical well-being of our democratically-elected President over promoting his book,” Carnahan said.
“While we value political discourse and the freedom to express your opinion, this act of perceived violence against the elected leader of the United States of America is disgraceful and disgusting.”
Will anyone in the media shove a microphone into Franken’s face and ask him to condemn Griffin? That’s what would happen if he was a Republican.
