The last time we checked in on Kathy Griffin, she was still playing the victim in the incident where she posed for a photo, ISIS-style, with a prop of President Trump’s bloody, severed head. Trump, you see, drew attention to the stunt to distract from “his bad news of the day,” possibly James Comey’s firing.

That was late December, and now Griffin’s on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter telling the same story again. Writer Seth Abramovitch notes that the “comic in exile” is to be found either arriving for lunch in a glittering black Maserati or holed up in her Bel Air mansion, depending on when you catch her. (“Over these past eight months, Griffin’s fuck-you house has become her fuck-you fortress. Or perhaps her fuck-you prison,” Abramovitch writes.)

The interview is available online, but journalist Yashar Ali pulled a quote from the piece that we think demands a fact-check.

America’s conscience, Jimmy Kimmel, has even offered Griffin a spot on his show whenever she feels like talking. But what’s this about her being one of the funniest people in the world?

Where’s the Hollywood Reporter piece on the rodeo clown who was destroyed for wearing an Obama mask? Is he in exile in his mansion too?

“When you’re a woman,” Griffin says, “you get one fuckup, and it’s over. When you’re a guy, you get chance after chance after chance.”
