Melania Trump says Kathy Griffin video was 'simply wrong'

Griffin on Tuesday apologized after widespread backlash over a controversial image of her holding a severed head similar to Trump.

In a behind-the-scenes video posted by Shields that has since been removed, Griffin can be heard joking with Shields about moving to Mexico after the images were released.

CNN has now distanced itself from her, which prompts me to wonder if the same folks who were outraged at the "silencing" of Bill O'Reilly will speak out on Kathy's behalf.

"Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself", Trump tweeted. "Because we're going to go to prison".

"We're not surviving this, okay?" she said in the footage. She originally described the project with photographer Tyler Shields as an "artsy fartsy statement" mocking the commander in chief.

Chelsea Clinton called the photo "vile and wrong", adding, "It is never amusing to joke about killing a president".

The concert will also be broadcast on BBC Television, and on BBC Radio and Capital Radio Networks, and streamed worldwide.

As it became clear not everyone found it amusing, she tweeted again: "OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever!" "I crossed the line".

He would go on to say other things too, like a joke about assassinating Harry Reid, and that Obama and Hillary Clinton "should be tried for treason & hung".

"The image is too disturbing", she added.

"Well you know, I didn't think it would last [because] he's 18 years younger than I am!", she told People. "It wasn't amusing - I get it", she said in her Tuesday night apology.

I remember when our evangelical pastors used to preach against "cheap grace"-that is, forgiveness without repentance".

"I went too far.I crossed a line.I ask for your forgiveness", she implored.

Yet today, despite her apology, many evangelicals-including Franklin Graham-continue to be apoplectic. Kathy's future co-host, Anderson Cooper, said he was appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in.

Even Chelsea Clinton said she found it distasteful. "Let's see what happens to her. Take their guns away".

Anyway, here's a photo of Ted Nugent and President Trump in the White House together in April.

"We were shocked and disappointed to learn about the image Ms. Griffin shared today", Squatty Potty chief executive Bobby Edwards said in a statement.

He was swiftly dismissed from the rodeo, called out by politicians in the state (including the Republican governor) and the NAACP called for a Department of Justice investigation into him, claiming that the satire (albeit terrible) was a "hate crime".

Persily said the distinction between wishing someone dead and promising action to cause their death or inflict harm is the key difference, and the reason Griffin's photo is not a crime.
