MORE FALLOUT=>Al Franken Cancels July Event With Kathy Griffin
It looks like Kathy Griffin has lost another opportunity following her gruesome Trump beheading photo-shoot.
Kathy Griffin received an enormous backlash over this disgusting picture. Conservatives bombarded CNN, pressuring them to fire Kathy Griffin and CNN subsequently cut their contract with her.
Kathy Griffin was also supposed to join Al Franken at a July 7 event. Franken had Griffin’s back until he just announced today that he has since changed his mind, canceling her July appearance. Things are getting real bad when even Al Franken doesn’t want to be seen with you!
Sen. Al Franken has reversed himself and decided “it would be best” for Kathy Griffin not to attend an event that the Minnesota senator had scheduled with the comedian for July.
The Democratic senator had said on Wednesday that he would still hold an event with Griffin on July 7 in California, even after publicly distancing himself from an image showing Griffin with a faux beheaded President Donald Trump.
But Franken said on Thursday evening that he’d changed his mind regarding the event promoting his new book, “Giant of the Senate.”
“I believe what Kathy Griffin did was inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere in our national discourse. I consider her a friend and I’m glad she realized she crossed the line and apologized,” Franken said.
He added, “After hearing from many Minnesotans who were rightfully offended, I’ve come to the conclusion that it would be best for her not to participate in the event we had previously scheduled. I understand why Minnesotans were upset by this, and I take that very seriously.”
Kathy Griffin will hold a press conference Friday morning in Los Angeles where she will claim to be the victim of bullying by the Trump family, according to a press release by her attorney, Lisa Bloom. Griffin released a photo, in an homage to similar photos released by the Islamist terrorist group ISIS, of her holding a mock beheaded President Donald Trump by the bloody scalp.
