Trump says comic should be ashamed for severed head video

President Trump says Kathy Griffin "should be ashamed of herself" for a photo shoot in which she held up a severed head resembling the president.

CNN initially called it "disgusting and offensive".

The statement refers to Griffin's apology which came late Tuesday afternoon, in which she explained that she had finally seen social media reaction to the photo.

As part of a duo with Anderson Cooper, Kathy Griffin has been reporting on New Year's Eve since 2007. Trump said that while all of his children are struggling with the bloody imagery, it's particularly having an impact on the couple's 11-year-old son, Barron. We're told he panicked and screamed, "Mommy, Mommy!" He declined to elaborate.

CNN did not make clear whether it was cutting its New Year's Eve deal with Griffin for just the upcoming 2017 broadcast or for good.

A New Mexico casino has also canceled a performance by Griffin, who was scheduled to perform at Route 66 Casino, operated by Laguna Pueblo, on July 22. Management of the Laguna Pueblo tribe-operated establishment made a decision to cancel a one-night appearance by Griffin scheduled for July 22, a spokesman said. "The image is way too disturbing".

Griffin tweeted in a graphic video post, "I caption this "there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his.wherever" Also @tylershields great Photog/film maker". I will continue. I ask your forgiveness.

"I won't give away what we're doing but Tyler and I are not afraid to do images that make noise", she says in the video clip, in which she praises Shields for making her look like she's 15. She originally described the project with photographer Tyler Shields as an "artsy fartsy statement" mocking the commander in chief.

The image was revealed by TMZ.

The daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sat down with Whoopi Goldberg on "The View" Wednesday morning to discuss the disturbing subject. "It is never amusing to joke about killing a president".

"CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program", its communications division announced on Twitter.

Speaking with MSNBC's Chris Matthews about Trump's first address to a joint session of Congress, she said "he just says one hateful thing after the other".
