Comedian Kathy Griffin: FBI Saved My Life Following Death Threats from Trump Fanatics

Comedian Kathy Griffin credited the FBI for saving her life after receiving death threats from President Trump supporters.

The threats came after Griffin posed for a photo in May 2017 holding a mock “decapitated” head of Trump.

“I will say this, I am not anti-government at all after this experience. I think the FBI saved my life,” the comedian said on the Jimmy Kimmel show Tuesday night. “I was not only on the MAGA bomber’s list, but … the FBI did something they call a ‘no-knock’ to my house, where it’s such an imminent threat, they don’t even call, they came right over.”

The FBI made an unannounced visit because she was on the kill list of “MAGA bomber” Cesar Sayoc, the Trump fanatic who mailed 16 explosive devices to the president’s critics and other prominent Democrats in 2018.

“They said during the interrogation of Cesar Sayoc, he admitted that he shared the kill list, which I’m on, with like-minded people,” she said. “So it’s an ongoing thing, and it’s just part of my new normal.”

Maybe comedian Kathy Griffin thought it was funny to pose for a photo with what appeared to be a bloody, decapidated head of President Trump, but the Secret Service isn’t laughing.

According to TMZ, the Secret Service has launched an investigation into “the circumstances surrounding the photo shoot,” which made its rounds on social media Tuesday after the comedian released the image to TMZ.

Trump tweeted early today that Griffin “should be ashamed of herself,” especially because his 11-year-old boy, Barron, was “having a hard time with this.”

According to TMZ, the Secret Service likely will interview Griffin and the photographer, Tyler Shields, to determine the intent.
