Kathy Griffin’s bloody Trump photo gets the internet to agree on something
Republicans and Democrats agree: Kathy Griffin did something disgusting.
Griffin — who you might know from, um, Suddenly Susan and reality shows I guess?— posed in a blue dress with the fake, decapitated head of Donald Trump in a photo.
It’s gross. Seriously, if you’re eating something right now, look away. OK, here’s the photo, via TMZ:
She was trashed on social media by liberals and conservatives.
Our politics have become too base, too low, & too vulgar, but Kathy Griffin’s post descends into an even more repugnant & vile territory.

DEM BASE: Talk about health care and jobs.
DEM LEADERS: Talk about Russia.
DEM CELEBS: Talk about meeeeeeeeeeeeeee

There are plenty of other tweets, too, but it’s a toxic cesspool that pretty much boils down to “SEE THIS IS LIBERAL HATE” and “TRUMP SUPPORTERS BASICALLY DID THE SAME THING TO OBAMA.”
This sums it up:
my feed today has mostly been liberals disgusted by Kathy Griffin and conservatives asking why liberals aren’t denouncing Kathy Griffin

In case you’re wondering, yes, people are tweeting about it to the Secret Service, who seem to be indirectly responding to the outrage.
Griffin responded to the whole thing with a reference to a Trump comment about NBC (and former Fox News) host Megyn Kelly.
2/ OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I’m merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.
