For six years she has been shocking audiences across America as they prepare to ring in the new year. But this year, Kathy Griffin really surpassed herself during CNN´s live New Year´s Eve broadcast when she simulated oral sex on co-host Anderson Cooper as well as making jokes about his ´sack´.Even when Cooper had to take a minute from the upbeat, lighthearted show for some serious news on the fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington, Griffin told him it should be called ´the fisting cliff´.Viewers continued to be shocked and appalled
Any celeb who depends on shock value to stay relevant has no talent. Madonna comes to mind. Kathy Griffin belongs in that group as well. Besides her shock schlock is the fact she´s a fave of the gay crowd. I´ve met many decent gay people, though, and I hope they´ve had enough of her.
The irony of this vulgar CNN show is that the openly gay Anderson Cooper was the first to apply the "tea bagger" homosexual slur to millions of patriotic Americans, but was upset by Griffith´s attempted on-air tea bagging of him.
Perhaps Fox should pair Anderson with Griffith on her new TV show, but as a remake of the Odd Couple.
Don´t watch them anymore ever, so I do appreciate the reports on this stuff and the guy who replaced Larry King. They knew exactly what they were getting when they hired her so I promise you nobody at CNN was stunned. If they were they´re stupid.
If Cooper was a "real man" he would have her arrested for sexual assault. That is after he knocked her head off. Just an opinion of mine BUT I have never seen a woman "comedian" who is funny. Lots of men "comedians" are not funny either BUT I do remember some funny men. Lucy was not funny either.
Stuff like this that damages our childrens minds. Makes me wonder how come congress will want to ban guns that kill but wont ban this sort of behavior that kills our childrens minds once they view it mistakingly. No more CNN for me...this takes the cake.
Griffin is the female version of Andy Dick. Only someone with psychological problems would do something so stupid. Insulting the entire country, especially with children watching, is never a good idea. Perhaps this is one reason, among many others, as to why CNN`s ratings are `below the belt`.
Anyone who is ´stunned´ by anything on CNN, hasn´t been paying attention since the moment CNN decided that thousands of Iraqis being tortured, raped and murdered, was less important than CNN keeping an office close to Sadamn and Sons. CNN is the face of Ted Turner´s twisted mind and this kind of behavior is normal for them. Sheeple who think they are actually getting unfiltered facts about what is happening in the world, deserve this. The level of media culture has dropped to the point that Griffin is actually considered an ´entertainer,´ by many viewers.
I am so disgusted that this kind of junk is allowed on TV these days. In the old days, they had standards. Okay, so it was a little silly that married couples had to have separate twin beds and couldn´t say the word "pregnant". But I would take those silly standards any day over the "anything goes" mentality we have now. Sickening. It was incrementalism...oh, a little this is okay...a little that is okay... now, anything is okay--no matter how disgusting, crude and repulsive. Oh, but don´t you dare make a cute ethnic joke as you may offend somebody who has no sense of humor!! ugh...
This Christmas Santa gave me a collection of the old Carol Burnett shows from the 70´s. What a difference between then and now. There is some double meaning stuff, but nothing that children couldn´t watch. Very funny!
Well, what in the world did anyone expect? The lewdness, lies and disgusting behavior of just about everyone in front of the cameras at CNN should tell you the kind of audience which watches that view of insanity.
Write Bravo & tell them Kathy is using gays to self promote. They gave her a show last year & I wrote to say I would never watch... then they renewed her for a new season. Her guests are mostly friends & even they are disgusted. In the promo, she spreads her legs like the pig she is.
I have nothing but pity for Kathy Griffin and her hapless viewers. But Anderson Cooper´s stock has gone up in my book since I saw him on a list of celebrity Republicans today - even if people will say he isn´t really a Republican. Of course.. they inexplicably listed Bill Maher, too, so - not much of a list, eh? Still, he isn´t nearly as bad as most of his cohorts.
I am surprised that there aren´t more people on Ldot that are totally outraged by this. CNN has sponsors, I believe there are decency standards set by the FCC.."I´m not surprised" just doesn´t cut it with me. UGH. Boycott the sponsors!
Filthy Godless liberal morons permeate our entertainment industry, as well as academia and the media...Who do you think voted for that Godless Kenyan foreign exchange student? Who do you think makes up the vast majority of the DemocRAT party? Who do you think are called "progressives" or "liberals"? THEM!
Ask Ted Turner if he´s proud, he´ll probably say yes! Morons! Half of our country needs to burn in hell, seriously burn in hell.
I think Kathy Griffin´s popularity is over-hyped by the Daily Mail because the Daily Mail trades in almost the same type of tacky behavior as what she does. Also, how can one take a newspaper seriously if it sells the things it decries?
It was a cheap stunt by a mind-stunted Comedian.... But she is in good company, as CNN is perpetually on its knees in front of the Democrat Regime of BHO... She was just proclaiming the obvious to the community of presstitutes.
Kathy Griffin has zero talent. As such, she tried her make her dollar the only way she could think of. Nothing funny or talented about that her. As for Anderson Cooper, he should ask for an apology or else go get a job in porn. Worthless trash, the lot of them.
Despite my evangelical faith and political affiliation, I´ve always gotten a kick from Ms. Griffith. She has been my guilt pleasure until last night. Simulating an act of sodomy on a homosexual is tasteless, vulgar and a sin. I pray for her Godless soul. May she be stoned to death with vagasil rhinestones !
Kathy Griffin is a no talent pig, who should reserve her behavior for a pornographic nightclub. Her behavior on national television network was appalling and anyone who has her on their show again deserves to be boycotted.
Earlier this week, Onyango "Omar" Obama, uncle to Barack, said in a deportation hearing that he stayed with his nephew in Cambridge in the 1980s. The White House had to that point said that the president had never actually met Omar, who was arrested for drunk driving in 2011. Now, two years after the arrest brought denials of any sort of relationship from the White House, the president is admitting that, yes, he briefly lived with his uncle Omar before heading to Harvard Law School in the ´80s. "The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law
Technicians in the Washington area raced up to a month-end deadline set by the Obama administration to make the troubled federal insurance website work for a majority of users, but officials acknowledged they still faced a raft of problems that could take weeks or more to fix. By Saturday evening, technicians completed a major hardware upgrade, adding computing, storage and database capacity to their data center, said one person familiar with the situation. "There was a big install and it worked," the person said. Contractors believe the upgrades will improve the system´s performance and let it handle more visitors, but the person
The once-sleepy town of Williston sits on the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers in the US state of North Dakota. Five years ago, Williston had a population of 12,000 and was slowly dying on its feet – an agricultural hub marked out from the plains only by the grain silos that stand silhouetted against the big North Dakota skies. The fall-out from a brief oil boom in the mid-1980s had left the town with sky-high debts and a main street filled with empty shops and peeling facades. Young people looking for jobs skipped town at the first opportunity. Today, Williston is
The CIA used a secret base at Guantanamo Bay nicknamed ´Penny Lane´ to turn some of al-Qaeda´s most dangerous terrorists into double agents, US officials have admitted.Inmates languishing under Guantanamo Bay´s harsh regime were offered cash rewards, "hotel" style rooms and even pornography if they agreed to help the CIA track down and kill fellow al-Qaeda operatives. Instead of Guantanamo´s spartan cells, they would be transferred to cottages equipped with private kitchens, showers and televisions, as well as their own patio. A handful then signed agreements to work for the CIA, under which they were released and told to hook up once
DALLAS - A winter storm system blamed for at least 10 fatal accidents in the West and Texas threatens to dampen the Thanksgiving holiday for millions of Americans traveling this week.Nearly 300 American Airlines and American Eagle flights were canceled in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Monday due to the weather, spokeswoman Laura Masvidal said, mirroring disruptions at the air hub a day earlier. Some of the country´s busiest airports - New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and Charlotte, N.C. - could see big delays. Icy roads led to hundreds of accidents and at least 10 deaths, half
As he climbed the political heap, a young Barack Obama roused audiences with promises to unite the nation. He was a Senate candidate in 2004 when he told the Democratic national convention, “There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is a United States of America.” In 2007, he declared early in his presidential run that “I don’t want to pit red America against blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.” A year later, after he won the Iowa caucus, he promised, “We are not a collection of red states and blue
Remember President Barack Obama´s mother? Though the airwaves currently echo with his vow "If you like your plan . . ." I keep remembering Obama´s account of his mother being denied coverage by her insurance company as she lay dying of cancer.The moving and infuriating story was a staple on the 2008 campaign trail. His mother had insurance, he explained, but when she came down with cancer, her insurance company claimed her disease was a "pre-existing condition" and refused to pay for her treatment. In a debate with Sen. John McCain, Obama said: "For my mother to die of cancer
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
