Default Trumps win shook me to the core

She broke herself. She should have been working on improving her career, with good, tasteful comedy. To act out an ISIS atrocity is what finally broke her down. She has nobody to blame but herself.

I'm sorry to break with my friends on the Left here, but I never cared much for Kathy Griffin and now I think even less of her.

Indeed she has the right to political theater or protest, but I think this was just going too far. She didn't think about the consequences of her actions, it seems.

Whatever message she was trying to make was completely obfuscated by the severed head. Because many people on the Right did and continue to say horrible things and spread awful visual memes online about President Obama (and other Democrats) doesn't mean that we should stoop to their level.

Not breaking with my opinion Jimru, it did go too far. Way too far. Unfortunately the racist right was doing it for 8 years, and guys like 12dB, Highpockets (no surprise there), AC2OY et-al not once condemned it. Then you have guys like 12dB come in here like he is so high and mighty whining about that photo. It is true hipocracy. As to the name calling. AC2OY adds no value to these threads other than his constant vitrol, angry posts. He seems like a very angry little man. Nothing more than an Internet bully hiding behind a keyboard.

He will eventually be banned, we just have to wait.

Again, where do you get that I didn't condemn it? Who is whining? You are a drama queen.

A non factual drama queen at that.

No, it's not much of a break you're making. She went over the line, and will have to deal with the consequences. Here's my thoughts on it...

Kathy Griffin has always tried to push the envelope. Generally, I find her funny enough, but I don't go out of my way to watch, and none of my money has ever ended up in her bank account. I'm more inclined to pay to see Neil DeGrasse Tyson give a lecture. He's both funnier and smarter than she is.

I don't get my political direction from comedians, and it's usually best if they stick to what they know. But we DO have free speech here, and she IS entitled to cross the lines in the sand. Let the laws of economics dictate the consequences. If her fan base is turned off enough, it'll negatively impact her earnings. If not, it won't. The people will speak their minds with their wallets.

She made her political statement, and now is crying that the Trump's bullied her. I don't particularly doubt that they did, but to cry foul about it now is disingenuous, and it's only hurting her position. I'd have a modicum of more respect if she just said "There. I did it, I said it, that's how I feel. Get over it".

Where she's really doing us a disservice is the fact that she has unintentionally created a diversion for the Trumpettes. They will use her satirical misfire to draw attention away from the President, where our focus really needs to be.

For that, I wish she'd just sit down and shut up and let it blow over. She needs to back to what she's funny at, which is making fun of her mother's boxed wine, and being on the top of Hollywood's D list. Tip it!

But... that's her schtick. That's her act. That's what she plays on TV and gets paid for it. She has never ever once, that I'm aware of, attempted to be a class act as part of her showbiz persona.

I get why the Trumpettes are upset with the imagery, but the fact that they're that upset just tells me that they're not considering the source.

That would be very thoughtful of you.

Her and Howard Stern, right?

Wrong. Tasteful comedy is not what either one of them does, and it's not what either of their fan bases want from them.

This is very true.

Do you disagree, then, with the statement that all men were created equal?

You never refuted the statement. THAT speaks volumes, you only say I'm claiming it.

Show me where you DID condemn the memes of hanging Obama and I will apologise.
