Kathy Griffin and Lawrence O’Donnell chatted last night about Sarah Palin calling Griffin a bully and has-been, along with taunting the comedian to “Come up to Alaska” earlier in the week. Griffin points out that as a lifetime achievement award recipient from the anti-gay bullying organization, The Trevor Project, she knows a thing or two about real bullying, and has spent much of her life working against it.
Like for example when she called out Sarah’s daughter, Willow, for calling a classmate a “faggot” on Facebook for all the world to see. Yes, bullying like that. Griffin says, “When you’re 16, you know you’re not supposed to use that word. That’s a word that you really do kind of tie into bullying, especially in the LGBT community – a community, I think, that she doesn’t care about.”
Kathy deftly handles Palin’s graceless taunting, and points out that the only one of them that should be labeled a has-been is Palin herself. The former governor quit halfway through her term to become a paid correspondent on Fox News and a reality television star on The Discovery Channel.
Bravo, Kathy. You go girl.
We hardly need to ask, but who do you think came out on top: Palin or Griffin?
