Donald Trump, Jr. just put Kathy Griffin and Big Tech giant, Twitter, on notice. After Griffin responded to a Trump comment about diabetes by stating, “SYRINGE WITH NOTHING BUT AIR INSIDE IT WOULD DO THE TRICK,” the popular leftist comedian found herself in hot water as she was blasted across social media for her threatening comments. President Donald Trump’s son jumped in the mix early Wednesday morning.
Trump, Jr. not only took a shot at Griffin but also at Jack Dorsey, founder and CEO of Twitter. Trump, Jr. nailed Griffin by stating that “past their prime comedians (Griffin) who tweet stupid things should be banned on here.”
Also, he stated, “next time @twitter @jack (Dorsey) bans a conservative for saying something not PC, just remember they have no problem with Dems making death threats against @realDonaldTrump on their platform.”
I don’t think past their prime comedians who tweet stupid things should be banned on here, but next time @twitter @jack bans a conservative for saying something not PC, just remember they have no problem with Dems making death threats against @realDonaldTrump on their platform. https://t.co/pOd6GXbxhV

Griffin had previously embarrassed herself with her “syringe would do the trick” tweet. Surprisingly, Twitter actually took down the tweet for a violation. In Twitter’s terms of service, it states, “you may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people. We also prohibit the glorification of violence.” See below the image of Griffin’s threatening tweet.
After a conservative outlet, the Washington Examiner, responded with a tweet by saying that Griffin “advocates for someone to stab @realDonaldTrump with syringe full of air,” Griffin doubled-down on her viciousness with another tweet that stated, “I SURE DID F*CKER.”

Griffin and the Trump Family
Kathy Griffin had infamously exposed herself by holding up a severed head of Donald Trump in a video in 2017. The public backlash was difficult for Griffin to endure, and she eventually apologized for her actions. On a video, she said, “I sincerely apologize.” Also, she tweeted, “OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever! I’m merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.”
Not surprisingly, Griffin’s attack on Trump continued, which also included attacks on Trump’s family. Besides tweeting, “F*ck you, Melanie” to the President’s wife, she insulted Trump, Jr. in an interview to the New York Daily News.
In the interview, she said, “I sent out a tweet the other day that was real honest, saying I didn’t know what my future was with this f*cking son-of-a-b*tch (Donald Trump) coming after me and the clown car of as*holes. Not to mention the family with the grown sons, Eric and Don Jr….They’re all psychos.”
Her sickening behavior can be traced to the aftermath of Trump’s Presidential Election victory. Soon after the election, Griffin had an interview with Vulture, and voiced her desire to go after the President’s youngest son, Barron.
Griffin said, “It’s his turn. So I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.”
Donald Trump, Jr. and the Trump family have put Griffin on notice. However, don’t expect her to back down. Check her history.
