(TNS) To be clear right off the bat, we don’t wish harm on anyone. After all, we’re not exactly a bunch of Leftists around here.

Because we prefer to fight our battles with truth and sometimes healthy skepticism and sarcasm, we have no need to be wishing people ill.

So with that in mind, it brings us no particular joy to report that unhinged Trump hater and former comedian Kathy Griffin has been hospitalized with what she claims are unbearable symptoms of COVID-19.

Griffin, 59, tweeted a picture of herself saying that she presented with “unbearably painful” symptoms of the virus to a hospital before landing in intensive care.

Even in supposedly unbearable condition, she still had the strength to tweet in response to a message from President Trump, in which he said, “Just reported that the United States has done far more ‘testing’ than any other nation, by far. In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!”

Griffin, who’s 99-year-old mother passed last week, posted one photo of herself with a mask on and one of her hospital room, though it was not clear where or when the photos were taken.

She claimed that she had been sent to a “COVID-19 isolation ward in a major hospital ER” from an urgent care facility she had visited.

And, of course, the tweet was an attack on the president.

“The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions,” she added, citing Vice President Mike Pence who leads the administration’s coronavirus response team.

According to the COVID Tracking Project website, nearly half a million Americans have been tested for the virus as of this writing.

As for Griffin, you recall that she complained about her career being over after she had herself photographed holding a mock decapitated head of the president — a photo that terribly upset the president’s youngest son, Barron.

So it should probably come as no surprise to her that many people responded to her claims with, um, derision and no small amount of harkening the Karma goddess.


If you’re a famous person with a successful entertainment career but you instead chose to throw it away by pulling a callous, disgusting stunt, your quest for understanding and mercy in your own hour of need is just going to fall on a lot of deaf ears.
