"A Bunch Of Old White Guys Are Trying To Silence Me"
Kathy Griffin accused President Donald Trump and his family of launching a campaign to destroy her life in response to the image she posted earlier this week in which she appeared to be holding the commander-in-chief's severed head.
The comedian broke down in tears as she detailed the torrent of abuse she has been receiving online, and the constant death threats which she described as detailed and specific. She stated however that she will not back down from this fight, saying: 'I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He is a bully.'
Later in the interview Griffin said that her career was likely now over as a result of this incident and that President Trump had 'broke' her, moments after she declared: 'There's a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me!' Her lawyer Lisa Bloom also suggested at one point during the press conference that despite reports, Barron was likely not that upset after seeing the image of Griffin with the decapitated head.

Another quote from Ms. Griffin:
"“If you don’t stand up, you get run over,” she added. “What’s happening to me has never happened ever in the history of this great country. Which is that a sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the First Lady are personally, I feel, personally trying to ruin my life forever.”
