Kathy Griffin Vs. Sarah Palin: LGBT’s Are People You Don’t Care About

Who is really bullying who here?

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.”

Burn.

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?

  • I adore Kathy! I saw her live here in San Francisco a few months ago, and she was wonderful then, just as much as she is now. Sarah Palin needs to realize that Kathy doesn’t give a piss what anyone says about her– especially some washed-up politician like Palin– but she won’t let anyone mess with the gays. <3

  • Been a total of Kathy since her appearance on Bill Maher. 🙂 She had me at the CF jokes. Nice to see her standing up for what she believes.

  • Travis Owen

    Kathy always comes out on top! You go girl!

  • Joselerio Montoya

    Kathy wins the cake all the time, I don’t see Palin sticking up for whats right.

  • Ashley Valencia

    Griffin will definitely come out on top and of course I agree with her assertion.

  • I may not like Kathy’s comedy, but, I think I just earned some more respect for her. Kudos!

    The show in Alaska she talks about at the end there (the one in Anchorage), I was there. She walked on-stage with Levi Johnson and told us about inviting Sarah Palin. I love that woman.
