On Thursday, Breitbart reported that alleged “comedian” Kathy Griffin hired high-power attorney Lisa Bloom and will hold a press conference on Friday to portray herself as a victim of alleged bullying from the Trump family.
“Earlier this week, Ms. Griffin released a controversial photograph of herself posing with a faux-bloody mask of Donald Trump’s face,” Bloom’s statement read. “Ms. Griffin and Ms. Bloom will explain the true motivation behind the image, and respond to the bullying from the Trump family she has endured.”

Please… We all know the reason she did it — she hates the president and thought she could do anything she wanted.
As Breitbart noted:
The photograph of Griffin holding a fake, bloodied head meant to resemble that of the president sparked a firestorm online this week, with the president and First Lady Melania Trump addressing the incident in separate statements. In a message on his Twitter account, the president said the comedian “should be ashamed of herself,” while the First Lady called the image “very disturbing” and “simply wrong.”
TMZ reported this week that Trump’s youngest son, 11-year-old Barron Trump, became distraught when he saw the image on television, because he did not know who Griffin was or the context in which the photograph was taken.
Griffin was fired from CNN this week, where she has hosted New Year’s Eve Live with network anchor Anderson Cooper since 2007. The 56-year-old My Life on the D-List star has also seen the cancellation of at least five scheduled engagements on her cross-country comedy tour.
It’s not clear what “bullying” Bloom is referring to. The president criticized Griffin for the trauma her picture inflicted on his 11-year-old son, and First Lady Melania Trump questioned the mental health of anyone who would post such an offensive and hateful picture, which is reminiscent of photos posted by ISIS.
Reaction was pretty much what one would expect:
Awe is her feelings hurt bc her acts got canceled and her sponsor dumped her? TOO BAD!!

You guys are certifiably insane if you think somehow Kathy's disgusting act can be turned into victimhood. Insane.
