What have Americans done to deserve this? How is it that Kathy Griffin, the foul and not funny “comedian” who got into trouble for holding up a fake bloody severed head on a Facebook meme photo, is going to portray Kellyanne Conway of the White House Communications Staff on a television series?
On April 3, Griffin will portray President Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway on the Comedy Central series “The President Show.”
The comedian made the announcement via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
“The President Show” is a sketch series where Anthony Atamanuik, who plays President Trump, hosts his own satirical version of a late-night show from a makeshift Oval Office.
Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and all the rest are not enough? We need another television “comedy” to poke fun at the Trump White House that has a better track record for creating jobs, and helping the American middle class than the previous four administrations put together?
Tell me there isn’t some coordination among the networks.
And someone out there is willing to take a chance on the “comedian” who insulted a sitting president and all of his voters? Yeah, she apologized for it, but retracted the apology. Now, she’s thinking we’ve all forgotten.
“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody,” Griffin said. “Like, I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends, Debra Messing from ‘Will and Grace,’ tweeting against me. I mean, I lost everybody.”
Almost a year after the incident, Griffin is taking strides forward working on her North American tour and has plans to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner, according to The New York Times. But the comedian still refuses to shy away from politics despite her past controversy.
“I am kicking the hornet’s nest, as much as I can,” Ms. Griffin told the Times. “I think it’s important to lean into the controversy because I know so much more about it now. I think now enough time has passed where people are starting to see the ridiculousness of what happened to me, and they’re seeing other people that Trump has done it [too].”
No, honey, you did it to yourself. No one did anything to you that you didn’t provoke. And blaming others for your mistakes is not attractive.
She’ll just have to learn the hard way.
