In response to the severe criticism, she has received over her recent photo Kathy Griffin lawyered up and called a news conference. Although the conference seemed to be more like a personal political platform it took a turn for the worst when she claimed lost control of her emotions.
During the press conference, Griffin was asked about a report that claimed Trump’s youngest son, 11-year-old Barron Trump, was traumatized by the image after he saw it on television because he did not know who Griffin was or the context in which the photograph was taken.
“Allegedly” traumatized, Bloom replied. “You’re assuming everything the Trumps say is true.”
“If you don’t stand up, you get run over,” she added. “What’s happening to me has never happened ever in the history of this great country. Which is that a sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the First Lady are personally, I feel, personally trying to ruin my life forever.”
Her attorney Lisa Bloom issued the opening statements which sounded more like an anti-Trump political commercial and harshly slammed the FLOTUS Melania Trump for her statements. Griffin then began her remarks and after criticizing the President started to cry. She stated that her career is probably over and that the President “broke her.”
After the press conference, many have commented that from a crisis management standpoint the execution was horrible.
