Whether one finds Griffin funny is irrelevant. This is a gift to trump, fox news, and every republican who was feeling queasy about defending their dear leader. It galvanizes them and allows them to ignore "the Russia thing", or worse, conflate this attack with a responsible journalist reporting on trump scandals. Who wants to bet Griffin and Maddow will be quickly up together on a RWNJ show, sharing the graphic while an idiot whines about conservative persecution?
The apology is useless and will be ignored. Instead of ranting about laughably obvious conspiracy theories, fox hosts can now crap on Griffin, CNN, and everyone who she has ever been photographed with in perpituity. But I guess she'll get a lot of attention for it. Good work.
