Kathy Griffin apologized again Friday over a photo where she held a likeness of President Trump’s bloody head and then confirmed that she received a call from the U.S. Secret Service.
Together with her attorneys, Griffin told reporters during a news conference, “What’s happening to me has never happened in the history of this great country.”
“You guys know him, he’s not going to stop. I don’t think I’ll have a career after this. I’m going to be honest, he broke me,” she continued.
Dmitry Gorin, one of Griffin’s attorneys, said the fact that her client is now a subject by a Secret Service investigation over a joke is “outrageous.”
The comedian also lamented that the backlash against her photo has promoted sponsors to cancel her shows, including her gig with CNN during New Year’s Eve.
A defiant Griffin also said she will continue to make jokes about Trump. “This president of all the people is going to come after me? He picked the wrong redhead!” she said.
The Daily Caller reports:
Griffin apologized for the “joke,” but remained defiant in her attitude towards the president. Her defense attorney, Dmitri Gore, answered questions about the Secret Service’s investigation. “We believe that it’s going to be closed,” Gore told reporters. “We don’t even think it should have ever been opened.”
“The Secret Service is doing their job I suppose anytime they perceive there’s a threat. But the really wasn’t a threat,” Gore said. “Ms. Griffin has expressed to you it was just a bad joke, she’s apologized for it, and we believe the Secret Service investigation should be closed as quickly as possible.”
