Tyler Shields Defends Kathy Griffin Photo Of Beheaded Trump, Won't Censor Himself

President Donald Trump says celebrity Kathy Griffin "should be ashamed of herself" for appearing in a video holding what looked like Trump's bloody, severed head.

"If you step out into that spotlight and you are doing the insane things that [Trump is] doing", the actor continued, "we [comedians] are the last line of defense. The comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing". Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., whose district was in the map, Griffin tweeted, "Happy now Sarah?" Is there any possible chance that we might think a little more about what we say or in Griffin's case, what we depict ourselves doing?

What are your thoughts on Tyler Shields' refusal to apologize for the Kathy Griffin photos?

Kathy Griffin was sacked from co-hosting New Year's Eve on CNN with Anderson Cooper this year, and even though they're longtime friends, Anderson is totally okay with seeing her go.

Jim Carrey is one of the few who have come to Kathy Griffin's defense after her controversial decapitated Trump mannequin picture she posted on social media. But reports of what she said drew fire from many, including Catholic League President Bill Donohue, who called it a "vulgar, in-your-face brand of hate speech". "It wasn't amusing. I get it", she said, adding that she was seeking to have the images taken down from social media. "I'm a comic. I crossed the line, I went way too far". I moved the line, then I crossed it.

Iran will continue missile programme, says Rouhani
Rouhani won 57 percent of the vote and avoided a runoff in an election that saw unexpectedly high voter turnout. The resolution of the nuclear crisis is of crucial importance, as Iran needs the global sanctions to be lifted.

CNN did not make clear whether it was cutting its New Year's Eve deal with Griffin for just the upcoming 2017 broadcast or for good.

Later in the day, after we saw Nicole, she saw Kathy's video apology.

Reaction has been swift to condemn O'Donnell for citing Barron, just months after she apologized to First Lady Melania Trump for questioning whether the youngest Trump might be autistic.

A film director, Robby Starbuck, tweeted, "I always try to be polite to people on here but this is a bridge too far". "I think Trump made a mistake in responding to her because it elevated her and her disgusting antic to a level she doesn't deserve".
