Did CNN’s New Year’s Eve co-host Kathy Griffin just bring the left and right together again with her latest ISIS-esque stunt?

With an unsurprising extremist action, the vulgar Leftist, anti-Trump comedian posed for a photo shoot with a decapitated, bloodied head of President Trump.

It’s about as wrong as you can get, politics aside or deeply involved. It’s just anti-American and inhumane, but it’s the new face (pun intended) for the Resistance.

Griffin’s actions have been condemned by both sides of the aisle from Donald Trump, Jr. to Chelsea Clinton.

Don Jr. called her act “disgusting but not surprising” and a representative of “the left today.”

Clinton said it’s “vile” and “never funny to joke about killing a president.”

I don’t get to say this too often, but Chelsea Clinton, you’ve got that right!

TMZ described the photo this way and discussed what happened during the graphic shoot:

Kathy Griffin wants Donald Trump’s head … but she wants it bloody and detached from his body.

The comedian posed for the gory shot during a photo session with famed photog Tyler Shields, who’s known for edgy, shocking pics. We got the pic before the release.

During the photo shoot, Kathy joked that she and Tyler would need to move to Mexico once the pics got released, for fear they’d be thrown in prison.

How insulting to American freedom, let alone Mexicans. You think Mexico wants a not-so-funny comedian who thinks it’s okay to joke about murdering the president?

Honestly, who cares what Kathy Griffin thinks — it’s the fact that she has a platform and this is how she chooses to use it — in a completely unacceptable way.

Keep calling Trump an “idiot” and “embarrassing,” but now, she shouldn’t be given 15 seconds on any airwaves.

If the Left wants to talk about political violence, they should do something about Griffin’s actions — and CNN, please don’t tell me you’re going to let Griffin continue to co-host your New Year’s Eve program with Anderson Cooper.

Griffin later tweeted out that she “obviously” doesn’t “condone any violence…ever” and that she was “merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.”

Oh, good. I guess that makes it alright. She was only joking.

Double-standard much?

Many have already pointed out that a rodeo clown had to attend sensitivity training after wearing an Obama mask, but this case isn’t your local radio clown going rogue.

On Twitter, neontaster pointed out a few ways she went full-on hypocrite. Here are a few of my favorites:

“When they go low, we go ISIS video”:

“A tale of two presidents”:

That time Griffin attacked Elisabeth Hasselbeck for criticizing President Obama on gay marriage: “You respect the office.”

Hate to break it to you, Kathy, but your little “joke” told us a whole lot more about you and your lack of character than it did about the conduct of the President of the These United States.

Thanks for showing us your true colors, but something tells me you’ll be seeing more red in your future than green when it comes to sponsors.

And you might want to prepare for a visit from the Secret Service.

UPDATE: Kathy Griffin posted this video on Twitter:

Kathy Griffin “apologized.” We have free speech in America, but it’s not “consequence free.”

Griffin took a page from the playbook of ISIS, got the attention she craved, and with that, most likely a loss of sponsors and paid gigs — as she should’ve — we will NEVER be able to unsee this and it’s disturbing.

She needs to apologize to President Trump and do a whole lot more if she wants to recover from this. And everyone on the Left who speaks about “Trump’s America” or “a culture of hate” needs to be confronted with this.

UPDATE: President Trump responded on Twitter:

President Trump said Griffin should be “ashamed” and called the action “sick.” He added that his children are having a hard time with this, especially 11 year-old Barron.

I can’t imagine, nor would I ever want to, waking up to see an image like this with my mom or dad’s head being used in a savage stunt like this.

UPDATE: First Lady Melania Trump responded:

“As a mother, a wife and a human being, that photo is very disturbing. When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it,” First Lady Melania Trump said.

Our First Lady put it lightly and gracefully to question Kathy Griffin’s “mental health.”

UPDATE: Barron Trump thought it was his dad’s head, TMZ says:

Barron Trump, Melania Trump, Kathy Griffin, decapitated, beheaded Trump

Barron Trump, again 11 years-old, thought it was actually his dad’s head when he was watching TV with his mom, Tuesday night, according to TMZ.

Which would explain both Donald and Melania Trump making public statements about this.

We need to pray for the Trump family. My heart breaks for Barron. This disgusting act is a reality in parts of the world where ISIS beheads Christians, men, women, and children. We should NEVER mock it or belittle the atrocity that it is.

Again, Kathy Griffin shouldn’t be given a platform because she’s proven that her judgment is WAY TOO EXTREME!
