Kathy Griffin calls for Trump to inject a “Syringe with nothing but air inside”

Tuesday comedian Kathy Griffin advocated for President Trump to inject a “Syringe with nothing but air inside it,” adding in her tweet “F**K TRUMP.”

Leaving no question as to the intention of her tweet, Kathy Griffin doubled down and responded to a tweet from the Washington Examiner.

Washington Examiner tweeted:

@KathyGriffin advocates for someone to stab @realDonaldTrump with syringe full of air. Air embolisms, caused by air getting into the bloodstream, can be fatal.

Kathy Griffin responded “I SURE DID, FU**ER.”
Griffin also added the hashtag #TrumpLiedPeopleDied.


Daniel Chaitlan tweeted:

An update: Twitter tells @TonyDLeonardi they will “look into” whether the tweets by @kathygriffin violated their violent threats policy. He also reached out to Secret Service for comment.

Kathy Griffin responded to this tweet by writing:

Go f**k yourself. Do you wanna tussle with me, you fucking amateur? #100ThousandDead

In 2017, Griffin infamously did a photo shoot with a mock bloody severed head of President Trump.

Griffin apologized at the time but in the years since has walked back her apology.

Video from June 2017:

“The whole outrage was BS. The whole thing got so blown out of proportion,” the comedian said in an interview on Australian television in August of 2017.

July 3, 2017 Reporter Yashar Ali reported that Kathy Griffin had been interviewed by the Secret Service.

“News: Kathy Griffin has been interviewed by the Secret Service, in-person, for over an hour….investigation still not closed.” Ali tweeted.

In July of 2019, Griffin said “I’m still totally blacklisted…No network will touch me. No streaming service will touch me. Nobody. And yet, I’m an earner. I’ve made them all money, and I’ll make them money again. I have to dig myself out of this hole.”

Here are some of the many responses to Griffin’s tweet from angry Trump supporters.
