Trump-hating comedian Kathy Griffin continues to blame the Commander-in-Chief for her career nosedive following her months-long public feud with the President, saying she can’t tour the United States “without getting shot.”
Speaking with Politico, the liberal comic unloaded on President Trump for attacking her on social media following the infamous, gruesome photo-shoot featuring Trump’s “severed head,” adding his tweet was “literally breaking news on every channel.”
“The photo was on TMZ, then Drudge tweeted it, and then Don Jr. retweeted Drudge,” Griffin said. “But the president’s Twitter feed is the greatest programming director ever. The minute he tweeted that tweet about me, it was literally breaking news on every channel.”
“There are millions of people who think I’m a member of ISIS to this day,” she added. “I wish I could tour in the U.S. without getting shot — I know I can’t. I was in the middle of a 50-city tour when the tweet happened. It was canceled in 24 hours.”
Griffin’s career took a direct hit following the gory photo-shoot. The comic lost her yearly gig as host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage in Times Square, and was forced to cancel a nationwide tour over the controversy.
