Considering what she’s been through in her own disagreements with President Donald Trump, we think comedian Kathy Griffin knows exactly where to draw the line on this one…
The My Life On The D-List star is lashing out on Twitter after being one of a series of targets in a newly fabricated pro-MAGA video which crudely shows a Trump-like character shooting and stabbing his political opponents.
The controversial video was shown this weekend at a conference held by a group called American Priority, which was taking place at the Trump National Doral Hotel in Miami. Trump himself was not present at the conference, and he reportedly has not seen the video as of early Monday morning, according to his Press Secretary, who first tweeted about it a few hours ago (below):
Yeah, we would hope he does…
First, we must warn you, the video itself is so graphic that even describing it should be prefaced by a trigger warning!!! Seriously; the clip is so violent NBC, CBS, and the New York Times all declined to show it to the public after viewing it themselves, which ought to tell you something…
The video is a scene from the movie Kingsman — set in a church, where a mass murder spree takes place. In the updated clip, the Trump character (POTUS’ face superimposed on Colin Firth‘s body) can be seen entering the building and opening fire on church goers, who include representations of Griffin, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, Mitt Romney, John McCain, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, and literally dozens of other people the video producers deem to be left of center, or anti-Trump. Other victims in the video include CNN, CBS, and The Huffington Post, as well as other supposedly left-wing media outlets that have been hard on Donald throughout his presidency.
The controversial video shows Trump shooting and then slaughtering the rest of the church goers — some apparently by shooting, some by stabbing — and leaving a bloody mess of carnage in his wake. If you can stomach it (seriously, it’s NSFW), the New York Times has a disturbingly graphic description of the entire video as part of their reporting, which you can read HERE.
As expected, journalists, politicians, and public figures have all lashed against the video, and Griffin has been among the most vocal. The comedian quote-tweeted another user who shared a graphic clip from the actual video itself — and while we won’t embed the clip, we’ll share Griffin’s outrage about it (below):
“Im depicted as being murdered by The President of the United States in this video.The left, right & center left me hanging out to dry regarding the Trump mask photo. Please don’t let it happen again. No, this video isn’t a joke to his followers. And it will not be taken as such … I get asked in interviews ‘what’s WAS (🤣) the hardest part of the photo scandal?’ Now this #TrumpVideo. I never broke the law, or violated the 1A. I’ll be watching to see if anyone has the balls this to advocate for me this time…publicly. Hello???”
We completely understand her outrage.
CNN also shared a statement about the video on Monday morning, as did many journalists and news outlets (below):
Clearly, the entire thing is completely inappropriate and horrifically out of place in civil society. So, will Donald Trump actually condemn it when he (supposedly) first sees it later on Monday morning? Yeah, don’t hold your breath about that.
Reactions, Perezcious readers? How do U feel about this one? Sound OFF in the comments (below)…
