Kathy Griffin has gone viral yet again after saying that someone should stab President Donald Trump with a “syringe with nothing but air” in it which can be fatal.

Her comment was spurred by something Trump said at a White House diabetes event. Trump stated, “I don’t use insulin. Should I be?” Griffin tweeted, “Syringe with nothing but air inside it would do the trick.” 

The Washington Examiner came to Trump’s defense by saying, “@KathyGriffin advocates for someone to stab @realDonaldTrump with syringe full of air. Air embolisms, caused by air getting into the bloodstream, can be fatal.”

To this, Griffin responded, “I SURE DID, F—ER. #TrumpLiedPeopleDied”

Twitter user @kamman18 stood by Griffin, tweeting, “Trump has done and said WAAAAYYYY worse. Next.” Griffin answered with a “Thank you.” 

In March, Griffin accused the president and his team of lying to the public about what is really happening with the coronavirus pandemic. She tweeted, “He’s lying. I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions. #TESTTESTTEST.”

Griffin included a picture of herself in a hospital bed as well as a photo of the hospital room.

This was in response to Trump’s tweet, “Just reported that the United States has done far more “testing” than any other nation, by far! In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!”

Griffin had received negative attention for slamming Trump in 2017 when she tweeted a photo of herself holding a prosthetic head that resembled the president. This post caused an outcry, a response from the president and even spurred a federal investigation. Griffin apologized, but then later retracted the statement.
