Kinda disgusting comments. It's cool because she's a lib. Fellow libs will give her a pass.

Kathy Griffin rips black comedian for not criticizing Trump: ‘A p***y move’ since ‘he’s a black man’

Kathy Griffin took a brief respite from excoriating President Donald Trump to target somebody new: Fellow comedian Kevin Hart.

In an interview with USA Today this week, Griffin ripped Hart for avoiding Trump jokes during his stand-up routines. And she even brought up Hart’s race in relation to her gripe.

“Look, if you want to not hear about Trump at all, go see Kevin Hart. He doesn’t even mention Trump. I, personally, think that’s a p***y move, because he’s a black man,” Griffin told the paper, according to PhillyVoice. “But I guess he’s selling more tickets than I ever will.”

How did Hart respond?
While Hart as of Friday hasn’t addressed Griffin’s slight on Twitter, a source close to Hart told Fox News he has no plans to start bashing Trump because so many comedians do it and audiences want to hear other jokes.


“Kathy is the last person on Kevin’s mind, believe me,” the source told Fox News. “Everyone has something to say about Donald Trump, and that’s the reason Kevin isn’t speaking on him. Kevin honestly feels the Trump bits are overused and knows that people are tired of the political banter from comedians.”

The source also said, “Going after people isn’t Kevin’s style, and he isn’t into telling people what they should or shouldn’t think about the president. Kevin would much rather stick to what he already does well, and that’s telling jokes that resonate with people on a personal level.”

What’s been the reaction to Griffin ripping Hart?

If the comments on the PhillyVoice piece are any indication, folks aren’t too happy with Griffin’s statement on Hart. Some even called her actions racist:

“Classic liberal racism: ‘We know what’s best for YOU PEOPLE…now shut up and vote for us.'”

“Where would anyone be without the likes of C-list Griffin to tell them what ‘black people should do.'”

“Another white lefty who knows what’s best for everyone, especially black people. Black people should all thank Kathy Griffin for giving them the white advice they so desperately crave.”

“Of course a pasty white feckless c**t like Griffin should be telling a black man what he can and cannot talk about. There’s nothing racist about that at all.”

Here’s a Fox News Business panel discussing Griffin’s comments about Hart:

So Kevin has the customers' interests at Hart, but Kathy demands Kevin change to, what she considers, is "required"...

I don't know Kevin Hart's politics and don't really care too. The man is a comedian and a pretty funny one at that. I appreciate comedians, actors, etc. that do their craft and leave politics out of it. Kevin Hart appears to be one of those with integrity.

Mrs. Griffin is just a butt hurt, leftist no-nothing with no talent. It is pretty lazy to continue to attack the president without ever having to offer useful suggestions as to directions they should take.

Maybe that should tell you something Kathy.
