"Nothing but air" is deadlier than it may seem.
Kathy Griffin is outspoken about a lot of things.
The comedian has come under fire for a handful of "controversies" throughout her career: She said "suck it, Jesus" when accepting her 2007 Primetime Emmy Award for My Life on the D-List, which caused her to lose a cameo on Hannah Montana. In a 2009 episode of the show, she used profanity in a joke about the infamous Octomom, which she said left her banned from New York's Apollo Theater. And then in 2017, she posted a photo of herself holding a mask meant to depict a decapitated Donald Trump, which led her to being fired from CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast. A fake-bloodied mask isn't so bad, though, when you look at the 100,000 American deaths in the past few months that are largely due to Trump's negligence.
Griffin doubled down on her Trump-fueled fury by suggesting that Number 45 should be injected with a syringe full of "nothing but air." Her comment followed Trump's speech at a White House diabetes event Tuesday, in which he asked attendees whether or not he should use insulin (surprisingly, he did not claim to have "the best blood sugar levels ever"). Air in the bloodstream can be fatal, and some folks were not happy with Griffin's low-key death threat.
Nevertheless, she didn't back down on her stance: "I SURE DID, F--KER," she reiterated in a tweet about her original comment by the Washington Examiner, adding the hashtag "#TrumpLiedPeopleDied."
Trump has also thrown a tantrum this week over Twitter's new fact-checking labels, which he claims are negatively impacting his 2020 campaign and stifling the First Amendment. Strange how those who refuse to believe reputable news sources also detest proper fact-checking, but I rest my case.
I SURE DID, FUCKER. #TrumpLiedPeopleDied https://t.co/4k3F95zAMz— Kathy Griffin (@Kathy Griffin)1590539463.0
