Kathy Griffin Warns Sarah Huckabee Sanders: ‘B—, Do Not Come for Me’

“I’ll tell her where the f—ing apology is,” comedian says of White House press secretary

Kathy Griffin had some stern words for White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday, after Sanders invoked Griffin’s name during a press briefing.

Griffin, who suffered considerable fallout last year after posing for photographs with an object that resembled the severed head of President Donald Trump, responded to the mention via Twitter, saying, “B—, do not come for me.”

“B—-, do not come for me. I did not call you,” Griffin wrote in a tweet containing a snippet of the briefing that mentioned her.

Griffin had another bit of advice for Sanders.

“And for f—s sake, take a cold reading class, maybe you won’t stumble so much,” Griffin added.

Griffin’s name came up in response to a question about the cancellation of “Roseanne” Tuesday, after series star Roseanne Barr made an offensive comment on Twitter. Specifically, Sanders addressed Trump’s response to the situation, in which Trump said that he hadn’t received an apology “for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC,” which aired “Roseanne.”

“He’s simply pointing out the bias. The President is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media, saying that the most horrible things about this President — and nobody addresses it. Where was Bob Iger’s apology to the White House staff for Jemele Hill calling the President and anyone associated with him a white supremacist; to Christians around the world for Joy Behar calling Christianity a mental illness?” Sanders said during the briefing.

“Where was the apology for Kathy Griffin going on a profane rant against the President on ‘The View’ after a photo showed her holding President Trump’s decapitated head? And where was the apology from Bob Iger for ESPN hiring Keith Olbermann after his numerous expletive-laced tweets attacking the President as a Nazi, and even expanding Olbermann’s role after that attack against the President’s family?”

In a subsequent tweet, Griffin declared, “I’ll tell her where the f—ing apology is.”

Barr’s successful “Roseanne” revival, which had previously been renewed for a second season, was canceled by ABC on Tuesday after Barr insulted former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, suggesting that Jarrett is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes.”

Barr subsequently apologized, but the apology failed to save her show, which was given the ax by ABC.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement to TheWrap on Tuesday.

Later Tuesday, Barr attempted to explain that she was “ambien tweeting” at 2 a.m. “Guys I did something unforgiveable [sic] so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible,” she wrote.
