Losing Your Head & Finding #COVFEFE

Ok, so the Kathy Griffin severed head was in poor taste but let’s face it, every word and every action of DJT is crass and way worse than Griffin’s satirical photographic comment, perhaps an unsubtle nod to “giving head” before impeachment, perhaps not, perhaps just the birth of a visual image which has formed in the collective consciousness of all sane Americans and international allies who see him for what he is. 

May I also remind anyone with a short memory about the vile visual and verbal attacks on Obama, for the entire 8 years of his presidency? I won’t post the images of nooses or reminders of the racist language, the photoshopped tribal costume images or the questions raised over his nationality and right to hold office. I won’t. 

People need to climb down from that high horse of disapproval and see Griffin’s picture for what it is; freedom of expression, satirical art and critical commentary. 

There is so much more to worry ourselves about. Is no one concerned about the #covfefe shortage? I know I am and I don’t even know what covfefe is!
