More Kathy Griffin shows cancelled as backlash over Trump photo grows

Griffin's press conference took place Friday morning.

Kathy's at attorney Lisa Bloom's San Fernando Valley office. ready to attack the Trumps for bullying her over the pic showing her holding a mock, bloody and beheaded image of the Prez. "I'm under a Secret Service investigation, and I get what I am".

Most notably, Griffin's ongoing feud with former Alaska governor Sarah Palin came to a head during a Fox News interview, when Palin called the comic a "bully".

"I still love Kathy Griffin", Foxx said. "I'm going to be honest, he broke me", she said while crying. "A sitting president of the US ... is personally trying to ruin my life forever". She also added, "I'm not afraid of Donald Trump". "Today it's me. Tomorrow it could be you".

She predicted she won't have a career after the incident. "He's a bully. I've dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole life". "He broke me. He broke me". At that point, she began crying and claimed the First Family was using their son to make the situation worse for her.

National party spokesman Michael Reed released a statement earlier Friday criticizing Griffin and her comments at a news conference that Trump and his family were attempting to destroy her life and career. First, Griffin absolutely has the right to speak or create images including ones showing the president's severed head.

Earlier this week, she begged for forgiveness, admitted she was wrong and that she went too far with the posting.

"Don't kill the comedian", Foxx added. But that's not how it works in any profession.

MIT issues statement regarding research on Paris Agreement
Leaders of industry and business groups distanced themselves from the White House in the wake of Trump's decision. The country says it will stick by its commitment to the Paris Agreement, despite the United States' latest move.

For now, the Kathy Griffin joke is over. If she has a good routine and word spreads that she's amusing, she gets more job offers.

Bloom explained her client's inspiration for the stunt.

Griffin and her attorney are leaning heavily on the idea that Trump (and Melania) are responsible for her bad situation.

In her initial video apology on Twitter, Griffin said "the image is too disturbing. As a comedian, she really is just fodder for me". It was already happening without their input.

"It is never amusing to joke about killing a president" while Mitt Romney declared "our politics have become too base, too low, & too vulgar but Kathy Griffin's post descends into an even more repugnant & vile territory".

"I don't think I will have a career after this".

Although she reiterated her apology, she told reporters a person shouldn't have to die for a joke in the United States.

It's a word that has been associated with her brand of comedy before, and something she has talked about experiencing both as a young girl and as an adult.
