Kathy Griffin Gets Backlash for Tweet About Giving Trump Syringe Filled With Air

By Jordan Moreau | Variety

Comedian Kathy Griffin has once again stirred up controversy with a tweet about President Trump.

Griffin’s name became trending on Twitter on Tuesday night after she tweeted about stabbing the president with a syringe full of air.

Her post was in response to a tweet from CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who wrote “Trump at diabetes event at WH: ‘I don’t use insulin. Should I be?’”

Griffin commented on Acosta’s tweet, saying “Syringe with nothing but air inside it would do the trick. F— TRUMP.”

Griffin was referring to an air embolism, which is caused by air bubbles entering the body’s circulatory system. The injection can block blood vessels and prove fatal, and it’s similar to when deep-sea divers get the bends.

The comedian’s tweet had nearly 2,000 comments on it by Tuesday night. Several users pointed out how she was threatening the life of the president and that the Secret Service should get involved.

Later, Griffin posted another message with a screenshot of Trump’s tweet about how Twitter labeled one of his posts about mail-in ballots as misleading for the first time.
