Apparently posing with a fake decapitated, bloody head of President Trump wasn’t far enough for comedian Kathy Griffin, who is at it again – this time accusing “Trump folks” of being “psychos” and telling the world America has “a Nazi in the Oval Office.”
“I’m going to call [Trump] a moron and a Nazi,” Griffin said during a Tuesday evening interview with the Australian talk show, “The Project.” “Americans are skittish about calling him a Nazi, but he is one. There’s a Nazi in the Oval Office.”
After comparing the sitting U.S. president to genocidal maniacs who killed more than six million Jews, Griffin insisted Americans must “get rid of him soon.”
“He’s a big liar and everybody should get rid of him soon,” she said, adding, “Not violently. Vote him out.”
As WND reported, Griffin sparked public outrage in May when she posed in a bloody photo shoot with a mock head of a decapitated President Trump.
See TMZ video of the photo shoot:
Amid the firestorm, CNN, which has featured Griffin in its New Year’s Eve broadcasts for a decade, fired her.
Even CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who has co-hosted with Griffin, expressed his personal shock, tweeting: “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”
The stunt even caused the Secret Service to launch a probe into the incident.
At the time, Griffin apologized and begged for forgiveness. But in August, she said she’s not longer sorry for her actions and that anger against her was “ridiculous” and overblown.

Now she’s attacking President Trump.
“I’m scared of that guy,” she told “The Project.” “I was under a two-month federal investigation for taking a picture of a mask.
“I’m excommunicated from my own country doing a world tour.”
She accused the president of using her “as a shiny object” to divert the world’s attention away from the investigation into his alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Griffin says Trump and his sons “came after [her] super hard” and caused people to threaten her life after the photo was published.
“They go on television saying, ‘We don’t want to hurt Kathy Griffin’s career; we want to decimate her,'” she said. “These Trump folks self-identify as deplorable. They’re psychos. They’re nuts. I’m here to apologize. I’m sorry we’ve put this guy on everybody else’s lap.
“I don’t know what’s happening in my own country.”
After ripping into President Trump and his family, Griffin weighed in on the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein, the famous producer facing sexual misconduct allegations.
“I sat next to Harvey Weinstein,” she said. “I’m not hot enough for him to sexually assault. That’s his mindset.”
Griffin continued: “I remember him saying to me, bragging about the wife who worked for a clothing company … ‘Maybe my wife could dress you some time for the Emmys,’ [and] I remember thinking: ‘I wonder if [that’s] one of the ways he got young actors.'”
The comedian said Weinstein’s scandal is “not one single case” and that sexual assault is “an epidemic” in Hollywood.
“My sort of experience is career-ending abuse … I can’t tell you how many … network and studio heads have to go down,” she said. “But the white middle-aged guys and older guys who are running every network and studio in the United States, they all behave this way. And everyone covers for them.”
As WND has reported, Griffin is no stranger to controversy, and certainly no fan of Trump.
Following the president’s address to Congress in March, she told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews she didn’t enjoy having to “watch this idiot for an hour and nine minutes” say “one hateful thing after another.”
“I’m a big resister and I don’t believe in compromise with this president. I also think he’s crazy, I think he’s mentally ill. He’s also an idiot.”
As WND reported in 2007, Griffin used her appearance on the Emmy awards program to tell Jesus to “suck it” and to claim full credit for the honor for herself.
At the 59th annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards, she was honored for having the Outstanding Reality Program “My Life on the D-List,” overtaking ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” after several attempts.
“I guess hell froze over,” Griffin announced. “A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this. He had nothing to do with this. … Suck it, Jesus! This award is my god now.”
Griffin also kissed the crotch of Anderson Cooper during a live New Year’s Eve broadcast as 2012 was becoming 2013.
