Kathy Griffin Blasts President Trump in Profanity-Laced Rant on 'The View'

  • Kathy Griffin takes back her Trump apology: 'I'm not holding back'

The Daily Beast gave Kathy Griffin a platform to brag about all the insults she hurled at members of the Trump administration who attended the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday - and then hailed her for it. The images are too disturbing, I understand how it offends people. "F**k him", Griffin said of Trump, announcing she's going on the offensive. "Calm down, girl, you weren't there!"

"The guy who knocked up A.J. Delgado and she of course got fired, and then he got re-hired [by CNN]", she said. "I've been through the mill", she explained, jokingly referring to Trump sons Donald Jr. and Eric as, respectively, "Eddie Munster and Date Rape". "So I'm confronting Jason Miller about the love child - and also just being a piece of s**t a***hole, and asking him basic questions like, 'How can you sleep at night?' 'What's it like being a propagandist?'"

It's been almost a year since Kathy Griffin was caught up in a whirlwind of controversy after the release of a photo in which she proudly held aloft the faux severed head of President Donald Trump.

"Can you believe it?" she asked Meyers.

However, as she calmed down, Griffin said that she was able to take a step back and look at the situation more objectively.

After being criticized by everyone from Trump himself to former first daughter Chelsea Clinton, Griffin issued a tearful apology on video and even held a press conference to do damage control after she was sacked from her New Year's Eve gig on CNN (even her former NYE co-host, Anderson Cooper, said he was "appalled" by the "completely inappropriate" photo).

When Griffin replied that she doubted his claim, he said, "Are we really going to do this?"

"At that time he had only done it to political figures". And I'm like, 'I'm sorry, who are you?

"The whole outrage was B.S.", she said. "So I'm now in their group of people to go for".

After posting an apology on social media stating that she "went too far", she realizes she regretting posting it. A lot of people actually said if this had been post-Weinstein or post-#MeToo maybe it wouldn't have been so bad. "I honestly didn't know they had this apparatus already in place". So they just kind of put me in the Colin Kaepernick wood chipper.

But Griffin said her intentions were simple: to make a statement highlighting Trump's misogyny and "disgusting" politics.
