Kathy Griffin calls Bristol Palin fat at USO event, and soldiers boo her

Comedian Kathy Griffin wasn’t so popular with the troops during her USO Diva’s Salute stand-up act on Sunday, when she poked fun at Bristol Palin’s weight.

“[Bristol Palin] is the only contestant in the history of ["Dancing with the Stars"] to actually gain weight.”

Following a chorus of boos, Griffin went on to say, “No, come on, come on. She gained, like, 30 pounds a week. I swear to God, it was fantastic. She’s like the white ‘Precious,’” referring to the obese African-American character in the eponymous 2009 film.

When the booing continued, Griffin shouted, “You can boo louder than that! Come on, boo me! I love it! I love it! War is Hell, war is Hell!”

This isn’t the first shot Griffin has taken at the Palin family. In 2009, Griffin made jokes about Sarah Palin’s infant Trig, who was born with Down Syndrome. Kathy Griffin justified calling Trig Palin a “retard baby” via Twitter:

“When I say her ‘retarded baby,’ I am quoting HER! Sarah Palin said it about her youngest! Jeez, don’t you guys watch ‘The Insider’? XP, K.”

The video of Griffin’s recent USO performance can be found here.

    Here is simply another reason to totally LOVE our Military. She has been told many times just keep one in her mouth all of the time and she will be tolerated.

    The best part of Kathy Griffin ran down the crack of her momma’s arse and became a brown stain on the mattress.

    Seems the only funny thing about “comedienne” Kathy Griffin is how she sees fit to try trashing a successful mother of 5 who became involved, ran for city council, rose to become a successful two-term mayor of a town, and then became a governor of a state, while ole Kathy has accomplished exactly the square root of F_^& all in her life.

    This coming from a pig who has spent thousands trying to not be so ugly and she is just as butt ass ugly as ever. Was it Churchill who said to a woman who called him fat ” I can lose weight but madame you are ugly and you can’t do much for your ugly face”. Thanks to our servicemen for letting her know how not funny she is. She and bill maher ought to get together.Two hideous and lame A-holes.

    Is kathy Griffin the stand up comic that used to be funny? Naw….couldn’t be her.

      I think, “Had a few funny moments,” is a more correct statement.

      The problem here is that everyone in the entertainment business who finds themselves in front of a large audience seems to think they are the only individuals who know anything about politics, what the people want or need, etc. So they try to “enlighten” us with their wisdom.

      If only those people would heed President Lincoln’s immortal words, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

      Kathy, we hear you LOUD AND CLEAR, if you get my meaning.

    Since Griffin is a favorite performer for the gay community we should assume she was there to entertain the gay troops and went through the wrong door.
