Griffin not 'laying down' for Trump, fears career is over

Attempting to explain her actions in the press conference, the often sobbing comic claimed to be a victim of "targeting" by the Trump family and said the entire uproar is a "distraction" from Trump's FBI investigation.

"Kathy Griffin's career was over long before she attempted to make a disgusting joke about decapitating the President", Reed said. "A sitting president of the United States and his grown children, and the First Lady, personally, I feel, are trying to ruin my life forever".

Griffin and celebrity photographer Tyler Shields posted photo and video of her posing with fake head on Tuesday.

Bloom said the comedian was contacted by the U.S. Secret Service and said she has retained a criminal lawyer. He issued a statement declaring: "I believe what Kathy Griffin did was inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere in our national discourse".

On Tuesday, photos were released of Griffin that showed the comedian holding up a bloody head resembling Trump.
