Kathy Griffin Takes Back Trump Apology For Severed Head Controversy: 'F**k Him!'

This president is different and I have been through the mill and so now I'm back on the road. Griffin continued, "Look, I'm not holding back on this family". That's when Griffin "expressed doubt" and Gidley asked her, "Are we really going to do this?"

Griffin said that the investigation made her tour incredibly hard, claiming that she was detained at every national border she tried to cross.

After an all-out attack on Griffin's character, with Trump citing trauma to his young children and government investigations, an apology was issued when it seemed the comedian was faced with a doomed career, having already been ousted from hosting events at CNN.

Griffin faced a firestorm past year after a now-infamous photo shoot she did holding a fake likeness of Donald Trump's severed head-an act for which she apologized before, more recently, rescinding her apology. Griffin appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night where the topic of conversation quickly turned to the provocative pic. "By the way, I take the apology back", Griffin told the audience, before adding, "F**k him!" "F-k him. And Don Jr. and Eric, or as I call them Eddie Munster and Date Rape".

He said AMU had "no intention" of allowing any "direct intervention" of political parties inside the campus. The spokesman said no national leader had raised any objection to the photo even after Independence.

Griffin explained she originally apologized after thinking about the feelings of the mother of Daniel Pearl, The Wall Street Journal journalist who was kidnapped and beheaded by terrorists in Pakistan in 2002. "What happened was, Michelle started her set, and then that pain in the ass Sarah Huckabee Sanders-who lies to the country every single day, and bullies reporters, and is tearing away at the fabric of the First Amendment, the one I know the best-she's sitting there with her pissy face". Before my silly picture of a five dollar Halloween mask and ketchup - and I wanted to make a statement about what a misogynist he is and also, I remembered the eight years of the photos of Obama lynching and nobody said anything, right? "Then, I had to spend two hours convincing my mother that I have not been recruited by Al Qaeda!"

Previously, Griffin apologized for the photo past year: "I sincerely apologize".

Griffin, noted as much for her anti-Trump advocacy as for her near two dozen televised standup comedy shows, went for zero to 60 in a brief second. "And I truly didn't think people would think it was an actual severed head". The images are too disturbing, I understand how it offends people. "So I'm now in their group of people to go for".
