Pop Culture Frenzy, Round 58

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy.

"Comedian" Kathy Griffin has created quite a stir with her, er, art.  Unless you've been in a coma for the past 48 hours, you've heard about it.  In this round everyone gets one turn to answer.

What did Griffin do?

Bonus question.  Why did she do it?


She made a statement of outrage toward
 the authoritarian violence that Donald Trump represents.
You know, you whiners never cared when Obama 
was treated with more disrespect than any president ever.
  How about what Ted Nugent said?  You guys don't mind that!

Hostmaster:  Molly?

She posed with a fake head that looks
 like President Trump covered in blood.
  I think she was trying to be funny.
  I don't get how it's funny.

Hostmaster:  Bryan?

She put on make-up and a blank expression
 and held up a beheaded Donald Trump. 
 The audacity of the stunt is not amusing but sure got attention.
  When she apologized, she said she moved the line,
 then crossed it.

Hostmaster:  Fluffy?

She said she wanted to do something
 big, new, political.  Evidently inspired by those
 zany ISIS freaks, she did a photo shoot featuring
 herself holding the bloody severed
 head of the President of the United States.

Hostmaster:  Kathy Griffin is a third rate hack who specializes in crassness.  There is an audience for it.  Once, accepting an award somewhere, she told Jesus to "suck it".

As a rule, I have no sympathy for people who do something stupid then apologize only after being called out on it.  But I actually pity Kathy Griffin.  She is evidently so desperate for attention that no low is too low.  Her desire to be edgy, to be significant, has led her to ever uglier infamy.  She's still not satisfied.  Now she's suing members of the Trump family for opining on her base performance. She claims they are "bullying" her.

Someone needs to remind this pathetic clown that we all have the right to expression, including pointing out that she is a  repugnant no-talent fishwife.

So ends this round.

Round 58
Fluffy/Molly   28
Bryan/Cyndi    23


  1. I've never found her remotely funny, but just desperate for attention. Trump doesn't need any help destroying himself.

  2. I am going to write something about this also....
    When I saw what she did it was just like ISIS with all their beheading.
    Awful just awful and now she is crying about it. Oh boo hoo.
    She is a ass.
    The Scotty you sent me is right by my computer ! I love it.
    cheers, parsnip

    1. I'm looking forward to reading your views on Griffin's idiocy.

      I'm tickled that you love the Scotty!

  3. I'm not a fan. Never liked her brand of humor. I'm one of millions who wants Trump to disappear, but disappearing from our government is quite enough for most of us.

    Seeing that photo made me think of the ISIS beheadings.

    1. It sure does appear that ISIS inspired her "art".
