The president's beheading is not a shtick; it's sick.
Kathy Griffin's funny and rich, so why would she post the decapitated head of Trump? The move's what you'd expect an 11-year-old troll with an avatar of Selena Gomez to do. However, a grown woman with millions to her name? No. Obviously, people were disgusted, but, before their horror, they were shocked. Griffin's a comedian, not a sadist. "I crossed the line. I move the line. Then I cross it. I went way too far. The image is too disturbing," she says in her Twitter video.
She was holding a bloodied, bludgeoned Trump by the wisps of his weave. Even though she meant to make a comedic statement, the image just looks like a chilling reminder of how crazy Americans can be. Whether you're a Democrat or Republican (or other), you can agree that the U.S. is in the pits. Everybody's going mad, and the insanity is quickly broadcasted, which only creates an even bigger rift between opposing political factions.
Nobody's willing to meet in the middle anymore, because people think "the middle" no longer exists.
When celebrities go too extreme, tensions just build and build. The wall continues to grow and grow, which only makes the "Iron Curtain" of sorts that much harder to tear down.
Trump got elected not to the fault of Republicans or Democrats, but because of both. Fear's making them go crazy, and Griffin's latest stunt is a paragon of said crazy. However, there's still hope. Instead of shitting on Griffin or Trump, maybe everyone can just focus on what can be fixed, and not on who. Let Griffin's mistake be a lesson learned for everyone. No matter how much you hate someone's actions, try to understand their motive, and try to understand them.
You can't fight Democrats with Republicans, and you can't fight Republicans with Democrats. In other words, don't fight fire with fire, especially when there's water available.
