Don Trump Jr. has had enough of the past her prime comedian Kathy Griffin and hit back hard today after she attacked President Trump.
“I don’t think past their prime comedians who tweet stupid things should be banned on here, but next time @twitter @jack bans a conservative for saying something not PC, just remember they have no problem with Dems making death threats against @realDonaldTrump on their platform,” he tweeted out correctly.
We will all wait and see if any action is taken against Kathy. Responding to a tweet by CNN’s Jim Acosta Kathy said:
“Syringe with nothing but air inside it would do the trick. F*CK TRUMP.” Nice, huh? When confronted by the Washington Examiner, Kathy doubled down: “I SURE DID, F*CKER. #TrumpLiedPeopleDied”
In medical procedures, air accidentally injected into the body’s bloodstream through syringes or IVs can cause air embolisms, which can be fatal.
Within moments, Twitter users were remarking how Griffin can expect another visit from the Secret Service.
Griffin stirred controversy in 2017 when she held up a bloody prop of Trump’s severed head in a photo shoot, a move which disrupted her career and prompted a visit from the Secret Service, according to her lawyers.
“I don’t think I will have a career after this,” Griffin told reporters in tears after the photo became public. “I’m going to be honest. He broke me.”
In response to a Washington Examiner tweet for this report, which noted that stabbing someone with a syringe filled with air could be fatal, Griffin said she “sure did” advocate for the president to be stabbed with one such device.
Griffin ended her quote tweet with “#TrumpLiedPeopleDied,” a common social media hashtag used by the president’s critics blaming him for a poor response to the coronavirus pandemic that has been tied to nearly 100,000 deaths in the United States.
The Washington Examiner reached out to Secret Service about Griffin’s tweets.
The Washington Examiner also asked Twitter if she breached the platform’s violent threats policy. A representative said the company will “look into” the tweets.
