Kathy Griffin may regret getting fired from CNN, but Judge Jeanine’s tongue-lashing will burn a lot longer

Kathy Griffin’s horrific Trump-head stunt has managed to provoke the ire of all of the right and even a few on the left. It drew strong reactions all across the political spectrum, from Chelsea Clinton to President Trump, and has even cost her the sharp condemnation of Anderson Cooper and a spot beside him on CNN’s New Year’s Eve show.

But what Griffin probably should be regretting most is the tongue lashing she got when her folly came to the attention of one Judge Jeanine Pirro.

That’s right, you don’t tick off the Judge and escape unscathed, and that’s exactly what Griffin did, and no, she certainly didn’t escape.

First, the ‘apology:’

And now, Pirro’s response, which at the time of this writing had gone viral on Facebook with almost 4 million views (we’ll post the Twitter version here for a better view).

After astutely noting that the first thing that came out of Griffin’s mouth wasn’t regret for the stunt itself but the strong “reactions” she got in response, Pirro launched into her rebuttal:

“That tells me that you’re more concerned about you, your career, and your image than you are about what you’ve actually put out in the public sphere,” Pirro said. “What you’ve done is try to normalize beheadings, and to suggest that a beheaded head should be that of the commander-in-chief is sick. You liberals have gone so far left, so far out-of-bounds, so far beyond what anybody finds funny or acceptable. Even Don Rickles wouldn’t do something like that. You are pathetic, and you are causing harm not just to the nation but to the first family and to an 11-year-old boy. Shame on you!

On Griffin’s firing from CNN, TMZ caught up with the Judge to ask her if she felt like the punishment fit the crime. “I think it’s appropriate,” Pirro told TMZ. “I think trying to normalize beheadings is the sickest I’ve ever heard of. And to do it to the commander-in-chief. If that were the reverse, if it were another president, that person would be indicted!”

Pirro’s tweet drew plenty of agreement:
