Kathy Griffin made her splashy debut as Counselor to the President of america Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday evening’s The President Present particular on Comedy Central, and one might argue that that is the function she was born to play. Not that Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne is something to smell at, however Griffin appears to own a sure deranged je ne sais quoi that simply can’t be matched.
As right-hand lady to Anthony Atamanuik’s Trump, wearing her festively patriotic inauguration day garb, the character boasts that Kellyanne has no conscience, noting that “you may toss out the names of the worst folks in historical past and he or she’ll fortunately defend them.” For instance, within the above clip, Atamanuik pitched Griffin disgraced former stockbroker Bernie Madoff, who stole actually billions of from his purchasers.
Griffin’s Kellyanne was more than pleased to oblige:
“Did Bernie Madoff’s buyers go bankrupt? Yeah. However I discover it fascinating the media used the phrases ‘pyramid scheme.’ Frankly, that’s antisemitic once you cinsider the horrible struggling of the Jewish folks in Egypt on the time of the pharaoh. So, this so-called chapter is definitely an ethical one in your half, Wolf.”
Subsequent, Griffin tackled serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, who she defended with the argument that “everyone wants meals to outlive,” referring to him as a foodie and “salt of the earth, a flesh of the human form of man.”
Griffin is presently seeing an upswing in her profession after she was met with controversy over a 2017 picture shoot by which she held up a pretend bloody, decapitated Trump head that received her chastised from either side of the political aisle and fired from CNN. She has since joked that she’d “do Mike Pence” as a substitute, but it surely looks like this could be a bit safer outlet for her satire.
