No, This is Not Art. It's an Obscenity.

The photographer behind the grisly photo of Kathy Griffin raising a blood-splattered replica of President Trump's detached head has defended the controversial image as "art."
No, I am not posting the photo. Go look at that article or this one.

That's fucking disgusting.

It's not art.

It's not satire.

Or irony.

It's an obscenity.

If there is any justice in this world, that so-called photographer will change his name and then end up trying to sell family portrait sessions at a discount store in Yuma.[1] And Kathy Griffith, well, hopefully her next show wouldn't fill a coffeeshop.

UPDATE: Griffith has apologized, says she went "too far". No fucking shit.
[1] I'm not naming the photographer. His name should only be a curse word amongst civilized peoples.

However, it doesn't meet the Constitutional definition of treason which was claimed on Facebook. This showed up just above a post opposing removal of Confederate memorials as erasing American history.

Kathy Griffin could have avoided all this if she had been truly familiar with Caravaggio.

Did the Secret Service look into the shooting ranges that were selling targets with Obamas face on them ?

I find Kathy Griffin mostly a bore and I'm being kind. Why she is on ABC's "New Year's Eve" shit-show (or any program) with Anderson Cooper is beyond me.

That said, if you are a fan of Kathy Griffin you have TO LOOK FOR her. Actively LOOK for her because she is relatively obscure. Her time has long since passed. No one under the age of ...35(?) seeks her out. And Barron Trump is well-under that age; i.e., he never saw that image and the outrage by his parents is all manufactured.
