If her point was to get attention, Kathy sure got it but was perhaps not the kind she was expecting. She should have learned from all anti-Trump celebrities and companies who experienced financially devastating reactions to their reputation, brand, and everything they hold dear. Add Kathy to the list of those losers who is also just got a response to her sick picture from her worst nightmare.
Kathy’s posed picture circulated fast on social media, as she expected, along with the outcome she feared in saying that she may have to flee to Mexico for fear that she and the photographer would get thrown into prison. The Secret Service just allegedly showed up on Twitter with a response which purportedly said, “Threats made against @SecretService protectees receive the highest priority of all of our investigations.” Another message followed: “On it!
@SecretService has a robust protective intelligence division that monitors open source reporting & social media to evaluate threats,” according to Breaking 911.
This isn’t about the First Amendment and being free to say what you want to say, it’s about showing respect for our president and setting an example of that a celebrity. Griffin went even lower than that by committing a crime in the name of a joke which clearly isn’t funny and shouldn’t be accepted as such. She abused her public platform in a grotesque way that wouldn’t have been acceptable if said by a conservative about Obama.
The backlash flooded in by even the most unlikely people who typically support anything anti-Trump, like former First Daughter Hillary Clinton who expressed her complete disagreement for this Griffin’s statement in surprising defense of Trump.
“This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president,” Chelsea Tweeted soon after the picture of Griffin went viral. Chelsea wasn’t the only political public figure who had something to say about it, Donald J Trump Spoke for all of us today with his immediate response that proved the problem is deeper than the picture.
“Disgusting but not surprising. This is the left today. They consider this acceptable,” he said on the same social media forum that the photo originally appeared on today, TMZ reported.
Perhaps what’s more alarming than this photo is that it’s practically become acceptable to do this, especially by public people who think there shouldn’t or won’t be consequences. The rules of decency and respect of our president on the most basic level shouldn’t change with the each new election.
