“I think a comic should be able to make fun of everybody,” Griffin said at press conference on Friday.
Comedian Kathy Griffin had a press conference on Friday to address her controversial photo shoot, in which Griffin held the severed head of President Trump.
During the press conference, Griffin told a reporter that she has no issue going after President Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron Trump.
A reporter asked Griffin about comments she made during an interview in December 2016.
“I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game,” Griffin said in the December 2016 interview.
Griffin’s attorney Lisa Bloom attempted to brush away Griffin’s previous comments, saying that Griffin had made them years ago, when in fact they were made just six months ago.
“I think a comic should be able to make fun of everybody,” Griffin told the reporter.
Bloom also questioned whether Barron Trump was in fact traumatized by the image of Griffin holding his father’s severed head.
“Allegedly,” Lisa Bloom said when asked about reports that Barron was disturbed by the image. “We don’t know that. You’re assuming that everything that Trump says is true, and in fact, we know that everything Trump says is false.”
