Kathy Griffin Does the Unthinkable: She Brings Everyone Together — To Hate Her!

There’s no middle ground with President Trump.

Nobody says, “I kinda’ like him.” You either love him or you hate him. Voters cast millions of ballots in 2016 for Trump because they hated Hillary Clinton — and she got just as many from people who deeply detest Trump.

But we didn’t move on after the divisive election. There’s been no healing, no move toward reconciliation. More, we’re in this for years and years. Thanksgivings and Christmases are going to be nightmares until 2020 as battling family members square off in their respective camps. No quarter asked, none given. It’ll get worse before it gets better.

But all is not hopeless. Along came Kathy Griffin to help bridge the political chasm by uniting everyone — in hatred of her!

In case you’ve been under a rock and missed the wall to wall covfefe, Griffin released a photograph of herself holding the chopped off head of Trump. But this wasn’t some wacky little doll head, it was life size, covered in blood and looked very real, like something you’d see in Game of Thrones. So real that 11-year-old Barron Trump though it was his dad.

Liberals — even limousine liberals and those in the mainstream media — were among those who swiftly condemned the photo.

And there were plenty more. Yes, someone came along that is so so odious, so repugnant, that she actually made the two warring sides lower their weapons — then turn them toward her. The reaction from all (except the most hardcore liberals, who applauded the photo) was a refreshing reminder that there is a line, and that when someone crosses it, people will rise up in anger.

Of course, Griffin doesn’t really care. She wanted to be at the tip of the spear of the Trump haters, but she’s just set back their movement in ways no one thought possible. But tis will blow over, and while CNN fired her from her New Year’s Eve gig and other sponsors are bailing as well, she’ll be welcomed back into the liberal fold one day soon. It always happen, and will happen again.

But for a moment, a shining moment, Left and Right, conservative and liberal, stopped hating in each other so they could join together to hate Kathy Griffin. And that should give us all a glimmer of hope.
