Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Wednesday, President Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump pointed out how “appalling” it was that no one stopped comedienne Kathy Griffin from posing in a picture holding what appeared to be the president’s severed head.
“It probably wasn’t just Kathy Griffin,” Lara Trump told host Sean Hannity. “She has many people around her. There was a photographer involved. I’m sure she has a publicist that works with her. There were a lot of people around that could have said, ‘You know what, this crosses a line.'”
As a result of the horrific photos, Griffin has faced widespread outrage, and on Wednesday, CNN announced that Griffin was being fired from her regular gig of co-hosting the network’s New Year’s Eve countdown show. She was also uninvited to perform at an event in Las Vegas in July.
“It tells you the society that we live in today and what some people deem acceptable,” said Lara, who is married to Eric Trump. “Had this happened to President Obama, I can only imagine what people would be saying right now.”
Ever since the businessman/entertainer announced that he would be running for president in the summer of 2015, his family has been subjected to intense hatred, threats and even attacks.
“I’d love to say that it gets easier. It doesn’t get easier, but we can handle it,” said Lara Trump, adding. “We’ve taken it for almost two years, and we understand that this is the world we live in and we’ve accepted it, in a way. But I think what is not acceptable is that people do things like what Kathy Griffin did, that there are people out there that would rather see our president fail rather than see our country succeed. And it’s very dangerous and we live in a very, very dangerous place right now and it’s very frightening to all of us.”
