I'm no goody-goody, and I'm certainly not a Trump fan, but IMO she really crossed the line with this one. Not only was it offensive (which I agree is in the eye of the beholder - in this case almost everyone!) but it wasn't funny! (Which is kind of the prerequisite for comedy.) If you found it funny, could you please explain the humor of it to me - and maybe to Trump's  12 year old son?

I'm not saying she should lose her career over it, but free speech and comedy are no excuse for plain old bad taste and really, really bad judgment.

I don't think it was funny it was dumb but the reality is she is a comedian they cross the line all the time. We all find different things funny some with sick senses of humor may have found that funny.

 I don't believe she didn't know there would be hell to pay for it she just didn't count the amount of hell .

I thought Griffin went too far. It was ugly and distasteful. I find it hard to believe she didn't know she was going to get blowback from that photo.

But I have no sympathy or compassion for Trump or his family. Trump has stirred up a lot of hate in this country. Some of that is being directed at Kathy Griffin right now. Trump has behaved in ways that many parents wouldn't want their children exposed to. So not much sympathy from me. I feel bad for his son if he saw the photo and for having to be a part of this circus of a family. But Trump brings some of this hateful commentary onto himself. Still no excuse for Griffin though. She should have known better.

I agree annemarie. She should hang tough. I was surprised that she seemed so defeated in her public comments. I think she should have apologized for the really offensive photo, taken the hits and moved on.

Yes Donnamarie, apologize and move on the press conference wasn't necessary.

If it had been Obama or Clinton's head... people would be asking for Griffin's blood.  That being said- yes we do have the first Amendment and she can say whatever she wants- BUT common sense has to enter into it as well.

"Comedian" does one stupid thing and the media obsesses over it for days. POTUS does something stupid (and potentially dangerous) every 5 minutes - and the media obsesses over "comedian" doing one stupid thing!

Our priorities are totally messed up!

Ugh, I'm sooooooo huuuuuuuuuuuuuuungrrrrrryyyyyy!!!

I thought I'd join everyone else in this month's Ramadan fast (except I'm still drinking water, so it's not a real fast) and I'm absolutely bloody starving!

You know that diet tip that everyone gives to you to drink a glass of water to stop hunger pangs?  It's bollocks.

One more hour to go before I can eat.  Arrrrgghhhhhh!

My sister says drinking water makes it worse, so unless you have to take medication, just go with nothing. Then when you break fast, make your meal last for at least an hour and have plenty of water throughout.

I tried the fast one year. I lasted 12 days. I'll probably do it next year.
