Kathy Griffin tweeted that she’s attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner at the Washington Hilton. Well, she would have if the righteous anger of the children hadn’t READ THE COUNTRY YESTERDAY and BURNED WASHINGTON DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH THEIR FIERY PROTESTS AND SPEECHES. Is the Hilton even standing anymore? Someone check.
To recap, Kathy didn’t read the room last year before she did a photo shoot in which she held a bloody Trump mask aloft like she’d chopped off his head. Things immediately went Sour Patch Kids for Kathleen. She lost deals and venues canceled her shows. The bosses at CNN fired her from their annual NYE stint opposite Anderson Cooper, who also dropped her like a red-headed dirty diaper. She eventually held a tearful press conference where she claimed to have received death threats and *ouch* apologized to Trump. (She later took her apology back.)
All that’s in the past now. Kathy’s ready to mix it up once more! She’s back on people’s invite lists again!

Kathy’s hosts are LGBTQ newspapers the Washington Blade and the Los Angeles Blade. So, if Trump attends this year (he skipped last year because it’s a jokey event and he’s utterly humorless and hates any media outlet that’s not Fox News), they might run into each other at the buffet!
It’s still a mystery as to how she made it on the list for a Washington event that Trump might attend. Maybe someone from the Secret Service okayed her? Kathy claims that the President’s security squad figured out she wasn’t planning to actually Squeaky Fromme the President and cleared her last July. Perhaps Ted, the agent who guards the President’s wig at night, thought she was funny and did her a solid?
