Sounding off on Kathy Griffin 

The latest celebrity scandal, which I’m sure we’ve all heard of by now, involves Kathy Griffin and PRESIDENT Donald Trump. Kathy Griffin, a “comedian” with “celebrity” status has found the need to post herself holding an extremely gory and bloody fake head with a very strong and identical likeness to that of OUR president. In fact, it’s so gorey and off color that I am refusing to show the aforementioned photo. 

Tell me, please, how is this funny?! How is this right?! How is this seen as acceptable in today’s society to hold the {what appears to be} bloody decapitated head of our Commander in Cheif? Simply put, it’s not. It’s horrendous. And it’s an act that should be looked upon as completely uncalled for and dispicable. 

I, as a mother, am absolutely sick to my stomach just thinking about the reaction from poor Barron Trump, who at 11 years old saw this on television and thought his FATHER had been brutally murdered. As a mother, I can’t even begin to fathom the reaction that our First Lady had, trying to calm her son and reassure him that his father was okay without shaking from rage and fear herself. I can’t begin to explain how my heart aches for this sweet and innocent child and the impression that this incident has left on him. 
As an American I am appalled. Appalled that someone would act so disgustingly towards the leader of our great country. And keep in mind, it wasn’t just one person who’s to blame for the photograph, but the entire team that was behind it! They all played a role, they all knew what they were doing, and I’m sure they knew what they were doing was disgraceful and disgusting  but they did it anyway. 

And for any of you who say “The first amendment protects our freedom of speech.” I agree, it does. It however does NOT protect you from the consequences of your choice. 
You don’t have to agree with our President on his policies or actions. Heck, you don’t even have to like the man. But you DO need to be respectful. You DO need to consider his family: his daughters, his 11 year old son, his wife. And before you post anything rude or degrading or violent, ask yourself “If someone posted this about me and the entire wold, including my whole family, saw it how would it make me feel?” 

It’s time for adults to start acting like adults. It’s time that we started to model those same behaviors that we expect of our children, Maybe if we as a human race stopped to think of our actions before carrying them out the world would be a better place. And if you don’t have anything nice to say, then please do us all a favor and sit down and shut up. 

God bless America, land of the free home of the brave. And if you don’t like it, well, you can find an exit to the north and south of you.
