Sen. Franken (D-MN) Backtracks & Cancels Event with Toxic Comedian Kathy Griffin After Henious Trump Photo Controversy
THE LEFT BUCKLES TO THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE … FRANKEN TOSSES GRIFFIN TO THE CURB.
It would appear that Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is all talk, as he has flip-flopped and canceled even with disgraced uber-Left comedian Kathy Griffin. The big-mouthed Democratic senator had said on Wednesday that he would still hold an event with Griffin on July 7 in California after she was fired by CNN for her disgraceful and vile photo shoot with a beheaded, bloody mask of President Donald Trump. It would appear the out-of-touch Democrat senator got an earful from his Minnesota constituents. Actions have consequences and Griffin is about to get a life lesson in that what goes around comes around.
Can you imagine that individuals actually find the below picture offensive?
Sen. Al Franken has reversed himself and decided “it would be best” for Kathy Griffin not to attend an event that the Minnesota senator had scheduled with the comedian for July.
The Democratic senator had said on Wednesday that he would still hold an event with Griffin on July 7 in California, even after publicly distancing himself from an image showing Griffin with a faux beheaded President Donald Trump.
But Franken said on Thursday evening that he’d changed his mind regarding the event promoting his new book, “Giant of the Senate.”
“I believe what Kathy Griffin did was inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere in our national discourse. I consider her a friend and I’m glad she realized she crossed the line and apologized,” Franken said.
He added, “After hearing from many Minnesotans who were rightfully offended, I’ve come to the conclusion that it would be best for her not to participate in the event we had previously scheduled. I understand why Minnesotans were upset by this, and I take that very seriously.”
Believe it or not, we can see that Kathy Griffin was hardly sorry in were crocodile tear apology. As per The Daily Caller, Griffin is holding a press conference to whine about the “bullying from the Trump family that she has endured.” WOW, she was bullied? Actions have consequences and you can say adios to your career.
All she did was behead the President of the United States in effigy and make his youngest son cry, and now everybody’s being mean to her. She’s standing up for herself. (Plus, she’s finally getting the attention she’s craved her whole life, and she’s not giving it up without a fight.)
But beyond this “bullying” she’s suffering, and the professional consequences of her decision — she’s been dropped by a company that facilitates defecation, but enough about CNN — I think what’s really tormenting her right now is the shaming by her peers. When even Keith Olbermann thinks you’ve gone too far
