Comedian Kathy Griffin attacked fellow comic Kevin Hart for not condemning President Trump in his routine in an interview with USA Today last week.

“I do feel like this is such an anxiety-ridden time for everyone that there is a thirst for all kinds of comedy,” Griffin stated.

“And look, if you want to not hear about Trump at all, go see Kevin Hart,” she continued. “He doesn’t even mention Trump. I personally think that’s a pussy move because he’s a black man. But I guess he’s selling more tickets than I ever will.”

USA Today did not publish Griffin’s comments about Hart, although they confirmed she said them to The Washington Free Beacon.

Griffin is attempting to relaunch her career after the disastrous turn it took last year when she posted a photo holding Trump’s decapitated bloody head. CNN fired her for the picture. Prior to the photo she had been very critical of the president and has continued to be so since being let go.

The interview focused on Griffin’s “Laugh Your Head Off” comedy tour, which is scheduled to begin later this week. The name of her show is a reference to that photo. (RELATED: ‘They’re All Psychos’ — Kathy Griffin Attacks The Trump Family)
