Fellow progressive leftist comedian Jerry Seinfeld addressed the horrific photo of Kathy Griffin seeming to imitate Islamic terrorists by holding up a realistic-looking decapitated head of the President of the United States, nonchalantly not seeing what all the fuss was about.
The blowback against Griffin was severe nearly across the political spectrum for the most part, but Seinfeld saw no problem with the photo in the first place, dismissing the mock beheading of the president as simply a “bad joke.”
“Yes, it was another bad joke. Every comedian tells bad jokes,” Seinfeld told People in an interview published Tuesday.
“We all do it. That’s how we find the good jokes,” he added. “So someone told a bad joke — so what, I don’t understand the big deal.”
Last Friday, in one of the most bizarre press conferences in memory, Kathy Griffin, flanked by her ambulance-chasing attorney Lisa Bloom, the daughter of notorious attorney Gloria Allred, unbelievably played the victim card, acting like she seriously needed to be medicated for a major case of bipolar disorder — laughing one moment and crying the next.
Both Bloom and Griffin seemed shocked that the Secret Service would be interested in talking to her after promoting the beheading of President Donald Trump.
