Controversial Irish American comedian's Mom was afraid she might have joined terrorist group following beheaded Donald Trump gap SNAFU.
Putting it mildly, it’s been a rough year for comic Kathy Griffin, ever since she posed for a widely reviled photo last May which showed her holding the bloodied head of a decapitated President Trump.
KG lost friends – most notably CNN star Anderson Cooper -- endorsements, TV deals and had her shows canceled all over the country. Late last year she took refuge in Europe with some shows, including one in Dublin in which she was booed because she told the audience that she was glad to be back in the “United Kingdom.” Yep, it was that kind of year.
Now she’s gonna try and resume her career in the U.S., and has some shows scheduled for the summer. Griffin’s grandparents hailed from counties Louth and Kerry, and she told the AP last week that her mom was afraid she might have joined ISIS, having watched a TV report with the volume turned down.
“I don't think they're recruiting 57-year-old Irish American comedians,” Griffin told her worried mother. “I don't think I would do very well in the training camps. I've seen those videos.”
