One of the bigger thorns in Donald Trump’s side over the last five years released some bad personal news today.
Comedian Kathy Griffin, she of the severed Trump head stunt, announced that she has been diagnosed with lung cancer.
Although Griffin has never smoked, she revealed a bit of a dark past that may have contributed to her current diagnosis.
Griffin’s little stunt against Donald Trump started a tailspin from which she has yet to recover.
After posting a picture with a fake severed Donald Trump head, Griffin came under some serious fire.
Initially, Griffin apologized for the stunt, then took it back, more than likely to get some headlines for her 2017 “Laugh Your Head Off” tour.
As her career spiraled, so did her personal life, admitting that she became addicted to pills.
This was an addiction that led her down a road to attempted suicide.
She stated, “I thought, ‘Well, I don’t even drink… Big deal, I take a couple pills now and again, who doesn’t?’
“Also, my age was a big part of it. I mean, who bottoms out and tries to take their life at 59? It’s almost a joke, right, and by the way, someday, this will all be comedy.
“Trust me… I was laughing to stay alive. And what I found is I felt like if I can’t make others laugh, then there’s no purpose for me to live. There’s no reason for me to live.”
She later added, “I just felt there was impending doom.
“I was already starting to think … it was time for me to go. And I was certainly being told by an awful lotta people it’s time for me to go.”
Griffin felt as though she had turned a corner, but now she is facing down a battle with cancer…

It will be interesting to see the reaction online to her announcement, as I would suspect that Trump’s diehard supporters will never find a soft spot for Griffin after what she has done and said.
