No one questions the tragic fate of James Foley and Steven Sotloff -- ISIS brutally, publicly beheaded the captured Americans in Iraq, photos shown across the internet to provoke fear and intimidate enemies of this stone age insanity that publicizes prisoners of war beheaded -- the lucidity of crazed comedian Kathy Griffin is in question -- as she mocked this brutal reality in a posting of a faux beheaded President Trump is in question..... does Griffin not have any regard for the brutal truth?

Griffin apparently thought she would be funny, holding the fake blood-soaked head of the American president -- yet, no one is laughing. All venues of her upcoming shows have canceled, even Anderson Cooper -- CNN journalist slammed his New Year's Eve co-host, ​"For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.​" CNN network, strong critic of the president, fired her from the New Year's Eve telecast.

The Karmic Wheel went bust for Griffin -- the media punishment fits the high volume crime.... the image hurt her reputation. Really, it's that simple -- there are limits, lines were crossed.

Griffin was dropped as spokeswoman for footstool maker Squatty Potty, one of the highly successful pitches on Shark Tank. Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque, NM canceled a July performance, the Center for the Arts in Grass Valley, Nev., and Uptown Theatre in Napa canceled two June shows. Her Nov. 2 appearance at St. George Theatre in Staten Island and Nov. 3 show at the State Theatre in NJ were also cancelled.

Even Democratic Senator Al Franken, a former comedian, said that "it would be best" for Griffin not to attend a book event that the liberal senator had scheduled on July 7 at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills. "I believe what Kathy Griffin did was inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere in our national discourse. I consider her a friend, and I'm glad she realized she crossed the line and apologized," the former comedian told Politico.

"After hearing from many Minnesotans who were rightfully offended, I've come to the conclusion that it would be best for her not to participate in the event we had previously scheduled," said Franken. "I understand why Minnesotans were upset by this, and I take that very seriously."

At a news conference, Griffin said the "absurdist" art went over the top. She acknowledged it was a "bad joke" and confirmed she is being investigated by the Secret Service. The 56-year-old then stated that "everybody turn on me" and that Trump mobilized America to ruin her career.

"I don't think I will have a career after this. I'm going to be honest. He broke me. And this isn't right. I apologized because that was the right thing to do, and I meant it," she said, adding, "There's a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me, and I'm just here to say that's wrong. You don't have to like me, but you shouldn't silence a comic."

Yes, the Karmic Media Wheel goes round for Grffin, time to silence Griffin. Really, it's that simple -- there are limits, lines were crossed.
