Kathy Griffin Wore a Trump Mask Onstage and Read a Scathing Letter to Anderson Cooper (Video)

Kathy Griffin took center stage as the opening act at the annual Aid for AIDS fundraiser “Best in Drag Show” at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The comedian came out on stage wearing a Donald Trump mask with both middle fingers raised high to the audience filled with mostly gay men.

“Hello gays! It’s me, Kathy Griffin, a genuine comedy fugitive,” proclaimed Griffin to the sold-out theater, which was filled almost entirely with gay men. “Can you handle it?”

During her set, Griffin brought up the Harvey Weinstein scandal, calling the now-former Hollywood exec a “rapist.”

“The Weinstein thing is just fucking unbelievable but I’m not afraid to say anything because I don’t appear in movies ever and no one will ever put me in one,” she said according to The Hollywood Reporter. “That guy seems to be what’s called a rapist. I’m using it as a broad term. There’s a lot of them and they are everywhere. So it’s time we started to fucking look out for each other because this shit has been going on for way too long.”

Griffin also brought up her ex-best friend Anderson Cooper, who she cut all ties with after he failed to support her after the backlash she received regarding that headless Trump photo she posted on social media. 

“I’m going to leave you with a cup of tea, honey. This is a cup of gay tea that is fucking scandalous and it involves Anderson Cooper,” Griffin said. “For some reason this gay sent me a letter and sent a copy to Anderson. It’s so heinous and so over-the-top horrible that I admit it made me laugh out loud.”

“Dear Anderson, from one homo to another, you’re a fickle faggot. Really? Not supporting and backing Kathy Griffin after she had your back for years. Even to talk about your cock-sucking in her comedy back when you were still a closeted queen. And another thing, Anderson: Homo rule 101, you always back your fag hag.”
