Far left comedian Kathy Griffin has been living almost in exile since she posed for a photo holding up Trump’s severed head. She has also tried to portray herself as the victim ever since. Now she is trying to stage a comeback by scheduling some shows in the United States.

Kathy Griffin Announces First U.S. Shows Since Trump Head Incident
In what’s been almost a year since her controversial photo with a bloodied Donald Trump mask went viral, Kathy Griffin has retreated from the national spotlight, save a contrite interview or two. Because no one in this country would book her and she was fired from her job as Anderson Cooper’s co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast, Griffin has been touring internationally, doing shows in 23 countries since the incident. Now, she’s back, and her first shows will be happening right on the Commander-in-Chief’s home turf.
“I’m dipping my toes into touring again even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again,” Griffin told Bill Maher on HBO’s Real Time Friday night, her first major public appearance since the photos. The first two in the tour are set for New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, which Griffin joked was right in “Trump’s backyard.”
Griffin told Maher she appreciated his ongoing support, saying, “Thank you for being one of the first and only people to publicly support me and say what happened is bullshit, publicly.” Maher responded that, in today’s political climate, everyone in the country goes “bat shit nuts about everything.”
Have you ever seen anyone so desperate to be relevant? It’s quite sad.
