Having been destroyed by the left (Chelsea Clinton: "vile and wrong"), the right (Trump Jr.: "Disgusting but not surprising"), and everyone in between ("you're a terrorist and an enemy of the state. She needs to be treated as such.") it seems 'comic' Kathy Griffin (most famous for presenting the New Year's Eve countdown) has decided to apologize for her video where she is seen holding the head of the president, which is slathered in fake blood.
And the response was not what she hoped for... (via DailyMail)
Ironically, it was a former first daughter that was quick to fire back at griffin, with Chelsea Clinton writing: 'This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president.'
'This is discusting [sic] Kathy Griffin has never been funny,' said self-styled conservative paralegal NativeCA. 'This should be reported to the FBI & Twitter.'
Meanwhile, @nancygolliday said 'Parading beheading of POTUS makes @kathygriffing a terrorist and an enemy of the state. She needs to be treated as such.'
And Dr J wrote: 'You're disgusting. Honor our military but dishonor our President and Commander in Chief? You'd behead our President? Hypocrite.'
Even some self-described liberals got in on the act...
'Big time Liberal here - and a Kathy Griffin fan - and I agree,' said Tanya Crosse. 'This is not ok and there is no excuse. She should immediately apologize.'
Meanwhile, Simar wrote: 'We can't knock the alt right for promoting hate speech & then support Kathy Griffin for promoting violence against the President.'
But then it got serious...
On it! @SecretService has a robust protective intelligence division that monitors open source reporting & social media to evaluate threats— U.S. Secret Service (@SecretService) May 30, 2017
Which prompted a desperate career-saving PR rescue... "I'm sorry, I went too far, I was wrong"

We leave it to Donald Trump Jr. who summed up the hypocritical reality of America today so perfectly...
Disgusting but not surprising. This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS? https://t.co/QdghcbIjS7— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) May 30, 2017
And if anyone on 'the left', who has proclaimed with violence how 'hate speech' is not 'free speech', tries to defend this, it merely highlights just how low they will stoop into the hell of self-delusion to avoid facing the reality that Trump "is your president" whether you like it or not.
