Kathy Griffin in Tears at Press Conference: 'Trump Broke Me' (Video): Griffin said the widespread backlash she has faced over the photo is part of a sexist campaign to destroy her career.
“It’s a bunch of white guys trying to silence me,” she said. “This wouldn’t be happening to a guy. This is a woman thing.”
Griffin told reporters that the process of preparing for the photograph took just minutes, and was intended to be a parody of the president’s comments about former Fox News anchor Megan Kelly, when he said last year after a presidential debate that the anchor “had blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her whatever.”
