Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin has used Twitter to offer some words of comfort to under-fire comedian Kathy Griffin. Griffin has faced a backlash last week after she posed with a bloody mask depicting Trump’s head. At an emotional press conference on Friday, she slammed members of the Trump family for subsequently bullying her on social media.
But soon after, Baldwin tweeted Griffin in support,
“Kathy… fuck them. Fuck them all
No 1 believes u meant 2 threaten Trump
Trump is such a senile idiot, all he has is Twitter fights.”
What he said.
Baldwin recalls a backlash he experience in ’98, when he sparked outrage for a joke about killing the now late Republican Henry Hyde on Late Night With Conan O’Brien.
Comedy takes no prisoners, and like in baseball, there’s no crying.
