On a scale of “Obama orders dijon” to “death panels,” the conservative outrage over a photo shoot featuring comedian Kathy Griffin holding “Donald Trump’s” “bloody” “head” ranked at about a “burning effigy.” In the aftermath of the provocative image, Griffin canceled her stand-up dates, lost her CNN New Year’s Eve gig, was questioned by the Secret Service for over an hour, and received a creepy, condescending pre-written apology to Trump from a CBS board member who wasn’t satisfied with Griffin’s initial apology.

Well, after a few months spent waiting for the death threats to subside, Griffin has had plenty of time to think about what happened, and has decided that she’s not sorry after all. She made that pretty obvious when she called her upcoming international dates the “Laugh Your Head Off Tour,” but just in case someone didn’t get the message, she bluntly re-iterated her point yesterday (or was it today? Australia is confusing) on the Australian morning show Sunrise.

“I’m no longer sorry,” she said when asked about the controversy. “The whole outrage was B.S. The whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody ... I have been through the mill. I didn’t lose just one night on CNN, my entire tour was canceled within 24 hours because theaters were getting all these death threats. These Trump fans are hardcore. They’re a minority, but they know how to act like a majority.”

She stopped short of telling Trump fans to come at her, but did counter an anchor’s continued questioning with, “you’re full of crap ... stop acting like my little picture is more important than the actual atrocities the President of the United States is committing.” She has a point there...
