Perhaps thinking Kathy Griffin couldn’t get much lower was premature.
The so-called comedian apparently accused White House chief of staff John Kelly of beating his wife in a tweet reacting to news about former White House staff secretary Rob Porter.
Porter announced his resignation Tuesday following allegations by two of his ex-wives accusing the former White House staffer of verbal and physical abuse while they were married to him. Porter denounced the “outrageous allegations,” stating they “are simply false.”

Griffin responded to a tweet accusing Kelly of turning a blind eye to Porter’s past.
Somebody might want to check how much under eye concealer make up John Kelly‘s wife wears. She will defend him to the death. Do not blame her. https://t.co/gMzEszSbXM

Basically in Hollywood exile since her disastrous decision to pose for a photo holding a fake bloody severed head of President Donald Trump last year, Griffin has been trying to make a comeback.
But accusing a retired Marine four-star general of wife battery with no evidence to back her claims did not earn Griffin any new fans on Twitter where she was torched for her comment.
When the fallout for this tasteless tweet sucks for you, whose fault (other than you) will it be this time?

A truly terrible thing to say or imply to anyone let alone John Kelly. Obviously you don’t learn from your mistakes. Your career is suffering and you are decreasing with each tweet, your reputation and your employability.

Not funny to make up what looks like claim of wife battery when there is no evidence to support .. It diminishes people taking real cases seriously . https://t.co/97zXzYDMq7

So…getting one very humiliating public trouncing wasn’t enough?

Really, Kathy?! REALLY?! I didn’t think you would stoop so low… I guess I thought wrong.

See, this is why nobody thinks you;re funny anymore. You just accused someone of domestic abuse based on his association with someone else and nothing more. You are a horrible person.
