Following the horrific imagery displayed by progressive leftist Democrat Kathy Griffin holding the bloody decapitated head of the President of the United States in her hand, CNN has terminated the agreement with Griffin to co-host their annual New Year’s Eve program with Anderson Cooper.
While not condemning the vile act in which Griffin literally copied the kind of imagery used by terrorist groups like ISIS, CNN issued a brief tweet announcing the move:
CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program.

Good for CNN, a leading member of the Democrat Media Complex, for terminating the contract, but it’s curious why it took a full day to do it. It’s even more perplexing why a more forceful condemnation wasn’t communicated. You can bet if it were a comedian calling for Obama’s head to be lopped off, the reaction would be stronger.
Recall the rodeo clown who lost his job because he mocked the former president by wearing an Obama mask. The Left was outraged and the Democrat Media Complex went unhinged in their coverage of the story. It was such an overreaction that the Missouri fair demanded “sensitivity training.”
TMZ reported that the 11-year-old son of President and Melania Trump, Barron, was traumatized by the depraved act by Kathy Griffin:
Barron Trump was watching television Tuesday at home with Melania when Kathy Griffin’s photo appeared on the screen, and his initial reaction was that something terrible happened to his father.
Trump family sources tell us Barron was in front of the TV watching a show when the news came on and he saw the bloody, beheaded image. We’re told he panicked and screamed, “Mommy, Mommy!”
As it was put to us, “He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.”
President Trump blasted Griffin for posing with the head, saying, Barron was having a hard time dealing with it.
Griffin initially doubled-down on her hate, joking that she may have to move to Mexico after posing for the picture with the decapitated head of the President of the United States. However, after pushback from fellow leftists — including Chelsea Clinton — Griffin made the decision to apologize, but not to the president or his family:
The #kathygriffin phony apology would be a lot easier to believe if there wasn't a video of her mocking the response she knew was coming.
