It took less than 24 hours for liberals to find fault with President Donald Trump’s response after it was announced that Arizona Senator John McCain died Saturday, losing his battle with brain cancer.
It’s no secret the president and the senator weren’t the closest of friends, or even allies.
There were public verbal assaults shot in both directions as Trump rose in politics and at times they were more than colorful, crossing into the offensive. However, few public comments may have been more offensive than that of Kathy Griffin when she responded, on Twitter, to the president’s condolences at the senator’s passing.
The vulgar language is present in the original tweet. It’s been redacted here.
In another, less caustic post, she used the opportunity to post yet another insult directed at the president.
Couldn’t disagree more with Senator McCain on policy but there’s no denying he was a hero who served our country admirably. He deserved so much better in his final years…the bullying by Trump and his supporters was awful.

Here’s the rub with Kathy Griffin. She’s a loudmouth, yes. She’s bombastic and a unabashedly liberal. But she also seems to have a short memory.
It would seem that Griffin wasn’t the fan of John McCain that she professes in her above tweets. How embarrassing. The Twitter population reminds her at the most opportune time.
The internet is an amazing thing. Nothing ever really goes away for good. And Kathy Griffin is about to be reminded of that fact.
She was certainly vocal in her distaste for McCain when he chose Sarah Palin as a running mate.
Maybe we aren’t the only ones who think Griffin is far off into left field with her comments.
It’s so very sad that an event such as anyone’s death — much less a hero like McCain’s — can elicit such harsh and vulgar reactions from anyone in the public eye.
What is undeniable here is Griffin is behaving like a hypocrite.
Opportunistic doesn’t even begin to describe how she pounced on this so shortly after McCain’s death. It appears she is exploiting the unfortunate circumstances of a senator’s passing to get some additional media attention.
And she seems to have no shame in doing so.
