Kathy Griffin continued to blame President Donald Trump for her current career status and said she can’t tour the United States “without getting shot.”
“The photo [of Griffin holding Trump’s severed head] was on TMZ, then Drudge tweeted it, and then Don Jr. [Trump] retweeted Drudge,” the 57-year-old comedian shared in an interview published Wednesday in Politico. Earlier this year, the comedian participated in a photo shoot in which she holds a bloody severed head of Trump.
Shortly after pictures of the shoot surfaced, she issued an apology for taking things too far, only to retract that apology a few months later.
“But the president’s Twitter feed is the greatest programming director ever,” Griffin added. “The minute he tweeted that tweet about me, it was literally breaking news on every channel.”
