When it comes to folks working in the entertainment industry, people just cannot seem to learn their lesson, as if the application of wisdom is something so far above their intellectual capabilities they simply can’t grasp it’s critical importance to the survival of their careers.
A good case in point is comedian Kathy Griffin. Griffin is most famous now — or is “infamous” a better term? — for posting a picture on Twitter featuring her holding the severed, bloody head of President Trump in a photograph very reminiscent of those disturbing photos posted by groups like ISIS.
This incident nearly destroyed her entire career and led to much rebuke, even by fellow entertainers on the left, who felt the star went way over the line. She lost tons of show dates and contracts, which translates into a loss of big bucks for her bottom line.
Rather than learning from this experience and giving the political rhetoric a bit of a break to recover her career, she goes on a profanity laced tirade against First Lady Melania Trump.
On Sunday, Griffin, who famously posed in an ISIS-style photo with a bloody severed Trump head, reacted to the first lady’s statement on the current Southern border situation. “F**k you, Melanie,” she wrote, purposefully spelling the first lady’s name incorrectly. “You know damn well your husband can end this immediately…you feckless complicit piece of s**t.”
Fuck you, Melanie. You know damn well your husband can end this immediately…you feckless complicit piece of shit. https://t.co/5NsoFgMuLr

Griffin’s profanity-laced attack was posted as a quote-tweet to a statement put out by Melania’s office. “Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families & hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,’ reads the statement. “She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws but also a country that governs with heart.”Advertisement - story continues below
The unoriginal alleged funny woman was clearly taking a page from Bee, whom Griffin has previously come to the defense of. Earlier in the month, Griffin claimed it was Bee who was the real victim in Feckless C*** Gate and urged the “Full Frontal” star not to apologize for her sexist attack on Ivanka for her grave sin of posting a photo of herself embracing her two-year-old son.
. @iamsambee please do not apologize.

Strangely, both Bee and Griffin were nowhere to be found when this same level of separation was happening during the Obama administration. Oh. That’s right. Wouldn’t want to be labeled racist for criticizing the president. Almost forgot about that.
Griffin’s vulgar and ignorant tweet smells of desperation, having leaked from the brain of a star that has lost her shine and relevance in the entertainment industry and is frantically sniffing around for a new way back in the fold.
Perhaps, if she’s really interested in being hip and cool, she should attempt to cultivate what little talent she currently possesses and actually be funny. That would go a long way into reestablishing the train wreck she calls a career.
