Comedians Sound Off About Severed Donald Trump Head Stunt

Jun 1, 2017  •  Post A Comment

More celebrities have worked their way into the conversation about Kathy Griffin’s poorly received “severed head” stunt targeting Donald Trump.

Jim Carrey, asked by ET about when comedians cross the line, appeared to defend the outrageous act. Appearing at the premiere of the new Showtime comedy “I’m Dying Up Here,” Carrey said: “I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times — because that line is not real.”

Carrey added: “If you step out into that spotlight and you’re doing the crazy things that [Trump is] doing … we’re the last line of defense. And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing. … It’s impossible to get away from it.”

Rosie O’Donnell, meanwhile, got into it on Twitter with a user who said her heart was broken because of the TMZ report about Barron Trump thinking something had happened to his father. O’Donnell has a long history of clashes with Donald Trump.

A report on TheBlaze says O’Donnell “reframed the argument to attack President Trump, wondering if Barron saw reports on the two men stabbed to death and another wounded on a Portland, Oregon, train after coming to the defense of Muslim females getting insulted and berated by another passenger. O’Donnell then wrote that such ‘hatred’ has been ‘promoted by his father.’”

  1. More examples of how the entertainment industry protects its own at all cost, never truly self-examines taste and flat doesn’t get it.

    • Explain how they protected her. They shared their opinions, but nobody actually did something to repeal CNN’s decision to fire her. Your knee-jerk reaction says more about you than it does them. I don’t even think you actually read this article. I think you skimmed it or just read the headline. Low information voters are responsible for our current pickle. I count you among them, no doubt.

  2. I love “A” lister Kathy’s recent campaign with the “Head” …

    1- There is no crime if there is no living brain tissue in the head as true with Trump.

    2- It would be an amazing way to launch a new “Headless Horseman” TV series with Trump as the star.

    3- Since Trumped just screwed everyone on the Paris Treaty issue … in true French tradition, it would be amazing to bring back the Guillotine.

    Anyway, although I jest most of the time, there needs to be a countrywide response against the cockroach working the White House …

  3. I wonder how this would have gone over if Hollywood Republican Tim Allen was holding up a severed head of Hillary Clinton. Me thinks not well with the Hollywood crowd.

  4. Paris Accord has nothing to do with this. Even Kathy Griffin doesn’t claim that. And Trump cannot be blamed for every crime that happens around the country.

  5. All too often in AJC comment, if someone does not agree with the comments of someone else, they attack the person instead of the person’s ideas or comments. This really makes their comments shallow and ultimately, easily ignored. It’s a tactic used by those that don’t have any intelligent things to say in the argument, so they resort to attacking the other person. No matter what your political persuasion, don’t hide behind the anonymity of the internet to attack another person, attack their ideas. Unless, of course, you don’t consider yourself intelligent enough to debate ideas but must resort to name calling like you did when you were a child. Whenever you debate or comment, attack the other person’s ideas or comments, don’t attack the other person. Disagree without being disagreeable. And this goes for all political persuasions, left and right. Be civil.
