People magazine gave Kathy Griffin the most sympathetic profile you might possibly imagine intheir August 12 issue as the comedian continues to dig out of the hole she created when she took a picture with a likeness of the bloody, severed head of President Trump.Next to a picture of Griffin surrounded by roses came the headline "Kathy Griffin Is Still Standing."



The twisted tale of the students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky who encountered Native American activist Nathan Phillips back on January 19 took another turn on Thursday, when lawyers for the teenagers involved in the incident filed a defamation lawsuit in Kenton County Circuit Court against 12 of the “most egregious high-profile individuals.” The filing came just a few days after a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit on behalf of student Nick Sandmann that could have resulted in the Kentucky teen being awarded $250 million for defamation of character by the Washington Post.



It was just another Trump-bashing night on the late-night lineup Tuesday, as celebrities commiserated with the hosts over how much they hated President Trump. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, the ABC host brought on Kathy Griffin to promote her new Trump-hating standup, and fret about the First Amendment being at stake because she got in trouble for taking an ISIS-like picture holding the President’s severed head.



Yesterday, President Trump announced the departure of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Immediately following the announcement, Hollywood celebrities and their lefty media pals popped the champagne bottles, taking pot shots at the former Trump staffer.



If there’s one night to skip out on going to the movies, mark your calendar for July 31. That’s the night Kathy Griffin is unleashing her first ever movie theater experience complete with Q&A and an entire weekend’s worth of melodramatic material from her Trump Derangement Syndrome-inspired novella, “I, Victim.”



On Wednesday, it was announce that liberal actress Kathy Griffin is hosting the Shorty Awards, the online social media awards show with a heavily liberal slant. Even by Hollywood standards, these awards appear remarkably politicized. Unglued actress Kathy Griffin, made infamous recently for holding a fake severed head of President Trump in a  photoshoot, is both the host and a finalist of this year’s best celebrity category. Other nominees include former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Russell Brand.



Denial is an addictive coping mechanism, and comedian Kathy Griffin’s latest interview is a masterclass on how it turns people into a contemptible pile of crazy. Griffin used the friendly lefty reporters at The Daily Beast to spin another account of her innocence and mistreatment by President Trump after her unsavory decapitation performance art.



It’s been about six months since Kathy Griffin’s last epic plea for attention. It must be time for her publicists (how’s that for a thankless job?) to their earn their retainer again. Everyone’s heard ad nauseam how she was blacklisted after her severed Trump head stunt. The world is hip to her story about Trump loosing government agents on her. And there may even be those who believe, all evidence to the contrary, that she’s funny and likable enough to have survived her attempted career suicide-by-OrangeMan.

 


Sometimes, a three-point celebration is just a three-point celebration. Sometimes, a pep rally is just a pep rally. Sometimes, a smile is just a smile. And sometimes, a hat is just a hat. Only among the most deranged partisans could a universal sports ritual, a common high school activity, a typical teen face and patriotic headgear be construed as evil symbols of patriarchal oppression. These, however, are the soul-sapping, lunacy-inducing times in which we live.



Those who weighed in on this Covington Catholic High School student story include some members of the Catholic clergy, Catholic lay leaders, and non-Catholics. Some were temperate in their remarks and some were vicious. Some have issued a full-throated apology, while others have offered less than a complete apology. Others are sticking to their guns. Two persons went off the cliff.



The showbiz left, secure in their swanky California and Manhattan digs, can’t honestly be expected to care much about border security. But, the most strident voices have chosen recently to outright denigrate it, too assured of their inherent goodness and cosmopolitan virtue signaling. Here are some Twitter highlights:



After Melania Trump called out the “opportunistic” media during an interview with Sean Hannity, and after the First Lady’s spokeswoman came to her defense during the ensuing media brouhaha, lefties in showbiz and the media have doubled down on the insults. They’ve taken to slamming Mrs. Trump as a “hypocrite” and a “birther,” while also hurling attacks at her “unrecognizable” appearance, particularly at her new, blonder hair.
