(ThePatriotSource.com)- Far-left sort-of comedienne Kathy Griffin celebrated the results of the 2020 presidential election – or the results so far, anyway – by reposting an image of her holding a mocked-up, bloodied and severed head of President Donald Trump.
The image, which she first posted in May 2017, caused a huge backlash online and meant she struggled to find work as a professional comedienne. Now, as the results seem to suggest that Democratic presidential candidate may have won a majority of the electoral college votes, Griffin appeared emboldened and reposted the photograph on Twitter.

Incredibly, the photograph was not censored by Twitter, despite very clearly inciting or celebrating political violence.
While the photograph attracted criticism from anti-Trump leftists back in 2017 – including from Chelsea Clinton and Keith Olbermann – this time around Griffin drew plenty of support.
“I never had a problem with this,” one user said, attracting hundreds of likes.
I never had a problem with this.

The tone appears to have changed significantly since Griffin first published the photograph. During a press conference with criminal defense attorney Dmitry Gorin, who represented Griffin, the publishing of the photograph was defended as Griffin exercising her First Amendment rights.
“I don’t think I will have a career after this,” Griffin said while crying. “I’m going to be honest. He broke me.”
Griffin also tried to place the blame on President Donald Trump, saying, “He’s a bully. I’ve dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole life, my whole career.”
The reposting of the photo took place on November 3, one day after the election, when Joe Biden started to benefit from mysterious dumps of ballots from counties across several battleground states, all of which were cast for him in some cases.
The decision appears to be timed intentionally to taunt President Donald Trump. And, while it has not been censored by the social media platform, a significant portion of posts made by the president and his campaign team have been censored as “misinformation.”
Are anti-Trump activists now emboldened to be more extreme than ever?
