Kathy Griffin FINALLY gets a new gig, and yes, it’ll be anti-Trump related

Kathy Griffin’s long stint with unemployment is shockingly over. What isn’t so shocking is her new job description.

The comedian who fell from public grace for her gory photo with a fake Donald Trump head last year tweeted on Thursday that she’ll be joining the cast of Comedy Central’s White House parody “The President Show,” playing the role of Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway.

Griffin’s first appearance on the program will be a on a Tuesday special titled “Make America Great-a-Thon: A President Show Special,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The episode will feature President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence (played by Anthony Atamanuik and Peter Grosz respectively) as they try to raise money for projects the president can’t afford, including the Wall and a settlement for porn star Stormy Daniels.

It will be the first time Griffin is back on screens since last May’s controversy, which cost her a job hosting CNN’s annual New Year’s Eve coverage.

“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was B.S., the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and I lost everybody,” Griffin said in August. “Like, I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends, Debra Messing from ‘Will and Grace,’ tweeting against me. I mean, I lost everybody.”

She claimed the pushback made it difficult to find work and even put her in danger of physical harm.

“I wish I could tour in the U.S. without getting shot. I know I can’t,” Griffin told Politico in December.

The comedian exclaimed she “can’t wait” to play her new role.
