Kathy Griffin—the very one that posed with a faux decapitated head of President Trump— is furious that someone had the nerve to report her latest life-threatening comment about President Trump to the Secret Service.
How dare they lookout for the president’s safety.
In a tweet, the “comedian” flipped out after Washington Examiner editor Daniel Chaitin said Twitter was looking into Griffin’s threatening comment and whether it violated their platform’s policy. Chaitin also said his outlet’s own breaking news reporter Anthony Leonardi reported the comment to the Secret Service.
An update: Twitter tells @TonyDLeonardi they will "look into" whether the tweets by @kathygriffin violated their violent threats policy. He also reached out to Secret Service for comment. https://t.co/tLu74ffbjF

And, she wasn’t having it.
“Go f*** yourself,” she tweeted in response. “Do you wanna tussle with me, you f*****g amateur?”
At this point of Griffin’s career, she may be known more for threatening the president than anything she accomplished as a stand-up comedian. And, it should be noted her life-threatening comments directed at President Trump are far from comedic.
The Washington Examiner reports Griffin’s initial tweet was in violation of their terms of service, requiring her to delete it:
A Twitter spokeswoman confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Wednesday that Griffin’s initial tweet, advocating for somebody to plunge an air-filled syringe into Trump, violates company rules on abusive behavior.
“We’ve required the account owner to delete it before continuing back to Twitter,” the spokeswoman said in an email.
On Tuesday, Griffin tweeted about plunging a syringe “with nothing but air inside it” into Trump in reaction to a tweet from CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta that noted how the president pondered whether he should be given an insulin regimen at a White House diabetes event.
“It would do the trick,” she said, before adding, “F— TRUMP.”
“In medical procedures, air accidentally injected into the body’s bloodstream through syringes or IVs can cause air embolisms, which can be fatal,” the report adds.
Many people on Twitter criticized Griffin over the threat and her outrage once she found out she got reported (again) to Secret Service. Check it out, per Twitchy:
