Kathy Griffin Rants On ‘The View’ – Takes Back Her Apology To Trump [VIDEO]
Griffin appeared on The View on Monday and told everyone that she is taking back her apology to the president. “Yeah, I take the apology back,” she said on the show. “F–k him. And Don Jr. and Eric, or as I call them Eddie Munster and Date Rape. I’m not holding back on this family. This president is different and I have been through the mill and so now I’m back on the road.”
After posting an apology on social media stating that she “went too far,” she realizes she regretting posting it. The only reason she decided to apologize was because she thought it would be offensive to people like the family of Daniel Pearl, who was a writer for Wall Street Journal that murdered by terrorists back in 2002. “I’ve performed in Iraq and Afghanistan,” she explained. “Two places Trump has never been and can’t find on a map. Of course with my connection with the military I thought of literally Daniel Pearl’s mother and so I thought, ok , obviously not very many people literally witnessed that horrendous event, but when I thought of her I thought, ok, apologize.”
She then went on to express how she feels like this presidency differs from others in the past. “You know, I was doing stand-up for so long, there was a time in the Bill Clinton days you could make fun of that Monica [Lewinsky] dress all day long and nobody thought you were a terrorist,” she said. “But now, like, you said things have gotten not only politically incorrect but this administration and learned it firsthand because I got a call the next day from the Department of Justice and I was under a two-month federal investigation for conspiracy to assassinate the president of the United States.”
Back in January, she was stuck in her Bel-Air mansion due to the number of death threats she would receive. However, she believes that she did nothing wrong. “I didn’t commit a crime,” Griffin said. “I didn’t rape anybody. I didn’t assault anybody. I didn’t get a DUI. I mean, my God, there are celebrities that f—ing kill people.”
After staying out of the spotlight for the past year, she is now going on a world tour. Her “Laughing Your Head Off” tour starts later this month.
