Oh, Good Lord. I didn’t want to post on Kathy Griffin because she is a D-list celebrity of no importance. But… from her press conference today.
“I’m not afraid of Donald Trump. He’s a bully. I’ve dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole life.”
The only reason this rates a post… and not much of one… is because of what her pitch reveals about the left. Translated, she’s saying: “I’m the victim here. And I’ve always been a victim. And I’ve been victimized by an old white guy you all hate. And I called him a bully, which was a huge buzzword not too long ago So, all you on the social justice left should be on my side, no matter how horrible the thing I did was.”
And she’s using that strategy because, in her mind, the road redemption is not in repudiating what she did and learning through introspection why it was wrong; but instead to pander to the prejudices of the people she wants acceptance from in hopes of being popular again. That’s what matters to her, getting acceptance from the clique. Not personal growth or learning not to be a horrible b-tch.
Donald Trump is not the reason Kathy Griffin’s career peaked with ‘Suddenly Susan.’ It’s because her voice and mannerisms are grating and her material is lousy. Maybe she thinks its funny for a 57 year old woman to act like a loud, obnoxious teenager. Most of the world, not so much. The reason she isn’t popular is because there is no reason for people to like her.
Maybe KG should go for a walk in the woods with Hillary; I am sure they would have a lot to discuss.
