‘Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself’

Hours after Kathy Griffin issued an apology for a photo of herself holding a bloody, fake head of President Trump, the commander in chief did not sound like he was any mood to accept it.

“Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself,” Trump tweeted early Wednesday. “My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”

Griffin posted the image, taken by celebrity photographer Tyler Shields, to Twitter on Tuesday.

“I caption this ‘there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his … wherever,’” Griffin tweeted.

The comedian was swiftly, and widely, criticized for it.

“Disgusting but not surprising,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted. “This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS?”

“Our politics have become too base, too low, & too vulgar,” former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney tweeted, “but Kathy Griffin’s post descends into an even more repugnant & vile territory.”

“This is vile and wrong,” Chelsea Clinton tweeted. “It is never funny to joke about killing a president.”

Anderson Cooper, who has co-hosted CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage with Griffin, also condemned the post.

“For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in,” he tweeted. “It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”
