We have seen time and time again the double standard between the left and the right. If there is an appearance of a scandal on the right, the left will show zero mercy, regardless of whether or not the allegation is true. However, if the left does have a true scandal popping up out of their ranks, they are quick to stomp out the fire and pretend nothing has happened.
Well, for once, the left is finally admitting that one situation has gone too far. And the result: a firing!
Kathy Griffin, CNN correspondent, just recently posted gruesome and disgusting pictures of her holding the top of a fake President Trump head, bloodied, under the assumption that she just chopped off his head. CNN has finally realized that they cannot rationalize her actions and photos, so CNN has officially fired her!
CNN finally decided to fire comedian Kathy Griffin after she posed with a “beheaded” and bloody Donald Trump mask. Griffin issued an apology for the insensitive photo shoot, but it wasn’t enough to save the outspoken comedian’s job as a New Year’s Eve correspondent.
CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program.

Previously, CNN released a statement, saying that it was “evaluating” its relationship with the comedian.
“We found what she did disgusting and offensive,” a CNN spokesperson said on Tuesday. “We are pleased to see she has apologized and asked that the photos be taken down. We are evaluating our New Year’s Eve coverage and have made no decisions at this point.”
The controversy began when celebrity photographer Tyler Shields posted the photos from his recent photoshoot with Griffin. One image showed Griffin, who has frequently criticized Trump, holding up a Trump mask that was bloodied to make it look like the president had been beheaded. Giffin and Shields also released a video, which is available on YouTube.
Finally, the left has to admit for once that their actions have gone too far! It is despicable that anyone would think that a hope of seeing a president’s decapitated head would be funny and helpful for the rest of America.
Kathy Griffin, I hope that you lose your following as quickly as CNN lost you!
