Kathy Griffin Says She's Being Bullied By President Trump

In a press conference on Friday, Kathy Griffin accused President Trump and his family of “bullying” her and “trying to ruin my life forever” after she went public with a photo of herself holding what was intended to look like the decapitated head of the president.

The comedian, who appeared with her lawyer Lisa Bloom, said that the Trumps’ bullying has led to her being vilified, receiving death threats and losing work.

“I don’t think I will have a career after this,” she said tearfully. “I’m going to be honest, he broke me.”

Griffin, who teared up several other times during the emotional press conference, noted that while her apology for the controversial photo “absolutely stands,” she shouldn’t “have to die” for her mistake. She also said she is currently under investigation by the Secret Service.

“The message is clear,” said Bloom, who gave lengthy remarks before Griffin. “Criticize the president, lose your job, and that’s what happened to Kathy and more.”

Bloom also said that Griffin’s photo was intended to be a “parody of Trump’s own sexist remarks” about journalist Megyn Kelly. After Kelly questioned Trump during a Republican presidential debate about his past comments about women, Trump said the former Fox News host had “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”

“I’m always going to stick up for a woman who I feel is being demeaned,” Griffin said of Kelly.
