Remember That Time Kathy Griffin Scolded Elisabeth Hasselback For Not Respecting The Office?

Once upon a time, Kathy Griffin had her own talk-show on Bravo called Kathy. Things were simpler then: Barack Obama was up for reelection and marriage equality was a big issue. Griffin played a clip from Obama’s appearance on The View, and let Elisabeth Hasselbeck really have it for her “attitude to the president, who was a Harvard Law professor,” telling her to “take it down a notch, bitch.”

Nowadays, Kathy Griffin is in some serious hot water for a picture of her holding Donald Trump’s decapitated head covered in fake blood.

In the clip, Griffin speaks of her time on The View and how Barbara Walters said to “respect the president.” But oh my, how things have changed. Perhaps there was an unmentioned caveat to Walter’s lesson: if it’s a President you don’t like, you can totally depict his bloody, severed head in a photoshoot.

Griffin faced a deluge of backlash after posting the photo, and has apologized.

She's trash.

I've always wondered who her audience was.

Now I know.

I've never liked her. I never thought she was funny.
This latest thing she did with the "Trump head"is unacceptable.
I prefer wholesale, old fashioned humor such as we saw in the sitcoms from the 1960's and 70's, Dick VanDyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Happy Days ....
Kathy Griffin is crude and harsh.

The rule as decreed by liberals is that one must respect Democrat presidents but can disrespect Republican presidents however they want.

It's not really a liberal thing, there are some people on both sides who disrespect politicians they disagree with but respect the ones they do agree with. I have seen many posters in this group talk trash about Obama and his wife and kids, but get mad when others talk trash about Trump and his family. And vice versa, it seems Kathy Griffin thought Obama should be respected but had no issue with her tasteless photo.

It seems to be much more common on the left than the right.

It only seems that way now because there's a republican president.

Just wait, next time a democrat is POTUS, some liberals will have forgotten how bad Trump was treated and insist conservatives should respect the president. Then next time a republican is in office the cycle will repeat all over again with the other side.

I disliked Obama but accepted and respected the fact that he held the office of president.
