CNN sacks Griffin amid Trump head uproar


The blowback was immediate, and the 56-year-old comedian was subsequently let go by CNN, where she routinely hosted their New Year's Eve special, alongside Anderson Cooper, for the last 10 years.

The redhead has apologized for posting footage from an explosive Tyler Shields photo shoot, in which she appeared to be holding the bloody head of the US leader, after receiving backlash from the president and his family. Squatty Potty, a Utah-based company whose products include toilet stools and other bathroom accessories, said it was suspending an ad campaign that featured Griffin.

"I beg for your forgiveness", she concluded.

Susana Martinez is calling on a Democratic public education commissioner to resign over his social media post supporting a bloody, beheaded image of President Trump. The Secret Service later said the matter had been resolved with no further action. At a women's march following Trump's inauguration, Madonna confessed, "Yes, I'm angry".

"Way too far" is putting it mildly, but in a unusual way Griffin's shameful stunt might have given Americans their greatest moment of unity since Trump's unexpected election. "Trump bring out the worse in us all".

"Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself".

It's also the third straight year the two teams have clashed in the finals, with Golden State winning the title in 2015. They have earned a rubber match with the Warriors, setting up one of the most anticipated NBA Finals in recent memory.

But when Republicans target Democrats in less direct fashion, they can be accused of inciting violence. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., whose district was in the map, Griffin tweeted, "Happy now Sarah?"

"It dawned on me that that's the TV show", Griffin told USA Today.

According to the photographer who took the gruesome shot, Griffin said she was "not afraid to get political if you want or make a statement if you want". And sure, hypocrisy abounds on both sides. He lost his NBC anchor chair but has bounced back a bit by his new role on MSNBC, which is not exactly a shabby position.

Shields also said he had spoken to Griffin after the image made national news, but didn't indicate what they spoke about.

Then she held up her trophy and said, "Suck it, Jesus".

"This is vile and wrong", Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wrote on Twitter. She tells us, "I know she's a comedian and I always like Kathy, but the pic is a little too graphic. and I apologize for saying it was kind of amusing".
