Kathy Griffin didn’t hold back while speaking about President Trump during her Monday appearance on ABC’s The View.
The comedian, 57, unleashed a profanity-laced rant and announced she was withdrawing an apology she issued last year regarding her infamous Trump beheading photo shoot with photographer Tyler Shields.
‘Yeah, I take the apology back,’ she said on the morning talk show. ‘F*** him… and Don Jr. and Eric, or as I call them Eddie Munster and Date Rape.’
Griffin went on: ‘I’m not holding back on this family… this president is different and I have been through the mill and so now I’m back on the road. I sold out Carnegie Hall in less than 24 hours.’
The outspoken comedian pointed out her First Amendment rights as well as her initial reason for apologizing about the tasteless shoot.
Griffin mentioned her sorrow toward the family of The Wall Street Journal reporter, Daniel Pearl, who was beheaded in Pakistan by terrorist Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh back in July 2002.

‘I thought of literally Daniel Pearl’s mother and so I thought, OK, obviously not very many people literally witnessed that horrendous event, but when I thought of her I thought, OK, apologize,’ Griffin said.
She further expressed concern about her own family and their safety.
