In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” conservative journalist Michelle Malkin slammed left-wing comedian Kathy Griffin for her recent ruthless attack on President Donald Trump and her reaction to the backlash.
On Friday, Griffin broke down at a press conference about the incident, during which she blamed Donald and Melania Trump and Donald Trump’s children for “trying to ruin my life forever.”
“What’s happening to me has never happened — ever — in the history of this great country,” Griffin said, “which is that a sitting president of the United States and his grown children, and the first lady, are personally — I feel — personally trying to ruin my life forever. Forever.”
On Friday evening, Malkin appeared on “Hannity” to discuss Griffin and her press conference, and she didn’t pull any punches.
"This Kathy Griffin press conference was an utter dumpster fire," Malkin said. "She really is the worst kind of soulless troll. And I really don’t have anything better to say about [Griffin’s attorney] Lisa Bloom, who is essentially a mooching tick on a soulless troll.”
“I think the worst part of the press conference was the crocodile tears, as you mentioned, of Kathy Griffin, and an outright lie,” Malkin told host Sean Hannity. “You know, on top of everything else, Kathy Griffin is just the worst kind of liar, because she said she’d never hurt a child, even though she is on record in an interview with Vulture Magazine saying that she specifically … said she was going to target Barron Trump. As a mother of a 13-year-old son who would have just been just as traumatized by that bloody, sick and vile image of Donald Trump that Kathy Griffin and Tyler Shields were responsible for, as a mother, my blood boils.”
On Tuesday, Griffin landed in incredibly hot water after a photo and video emerged of a photoshoot in which Griffin held a lifelike, bloody replica of a head that looked like Trump.
In a video released by TMZ, Griffin bragged about the photoshoot, which was run by photographer Tyler Shields, saying, “I won’t give away what we’re doing, but Tyler and I are not afraid to do images that make noise,” Griffin added.
The backlash against Griffin was so immense that she issued an apology on Tuesday in a video posted on Twitter.
“I sincerely apologize,” Griffin said in the video. “I am just now seeing the reaction of these images. I’m a comic, I cross the line—I move the line, then I cross it; I went way too far.”
