Kathy Griffin is ready to kick off her American comeback tour — and her first stop is in ‘Trump’s backyard’

For the first time since her photo stunt with a bloody replica of President Trump’s head, Kathy Griffin is ready for a comeback.

And she is kicking off her attempted career revival with a U.S. tour which is to include a stop in Trump’s “backyard.”

Breaking the news on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday, the so-called comedian made a “small, victorious announcement.”

“I’m dipping my toes into touring again,” she said, adding that “even though the Trumps and nobody wants me to work again,” she said, she had booked two shows earlier in the day.

“I’m going to do a show at Carnegie Hall in New York, and I’m also going to go right to Trump’s backyard and do a show at the Kennedy Center,” she said, referring to the venue located in Washington, D.C.

Griffin whined last year that the infamous photo of her holding a fake severed Trump head and its ensuing controversy crashed her career as she was “fully in the middle of a blacklist, a Hollywood blacklist.” And while the backlash was from all sides of the political divide, Griffin blamed the president and his supporters for the fallout.

“They’re psychos!” she said. “They’re nuts!”

She recounted her version of the experience on Maher’s show Friday.

Griffin claimed Donald Trump Jr. wanted to see her decimated after the photo. “I’m not decimated,” she declared, flipping the bird defiantly.

Her bitterness continued when she attacked her fellow celebrities at the 2018 Writers Guild Awards where she unleashed a vulgar rant against them for not having her back during the controversy.

She told Maher’s audience on Friday that it “sucked” getting fired from CNN’s New Year’s Eve program which she had co-hosted with Anderson Cooper.

“I got canned from CNN, which sucked because I was never a CNN employee. I only worked there one night a week, but they made this sweeping statement,” she told Maher.

Cooper had tweeted that he was “appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”

Apparently Griffin, like her liberal friends, is also still in denial about the 2016 presidential election.

It remains to be seen how successful the comeback tour will be for the 57-year-old actress. But her Clinton photo tweet got her plenty of attention on Twitter.
