When “comedian” Kathy Griffin posed with a severed head of former President Donald Trump, many on the left saw it as a harmless joke but us sane people didn’t. However, it seems like the joke is on her, as she just announced some trumped up diagnoses to get attention.
In a dramatic reveal, the comedian Kathy Griffin recently announced on TikTok that she has been diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A real disorder that many brave men and women in uniform suffer from for enduring horrid things while defending our country. What could Hollywood Griffin possibly experience that could cause such a serious diagnosis?
Kathy Griffin, a self-proclaimed Trump hater for likes, once thought it would be funny to post a photo of herself holding a severed head of the former president. The photo caused uproar and was widely criticized by people of all political persuasions.
While she might have expected some backlash, the comedian jokingly implied in her announcement that it might have something to do with Trump. This led to what is described as an “extreme” case of PTSD.
Let’s first describe PTSD for a better understanding, PTSD is a mental health disorder that can occur after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. The symptoms can include flashbacks to the event, nightmares, negative thoughts, and anxiety.
While PTSD is common among people who have experienced physical or sexual assault, war veterans, and others who have experienced significant trauma, it is highly unusual for someone to develop the condition after being a social media troll.

The next step for her is to seek professional help by trying eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR). At least we can all agree on the seeking professional help part.
The Cleveland Clinic describes this method as involving moving your eyes in specific ways while you process traumatizing memories. The goal of EMDR is to help you heal from trauma and other distressing life experiences.”
Perhaps her PTSD stems more from the time she was banned on Twitter by the greatest troll of time, Elon Musk. That makes more sense than the bogus reason she’s giving us.
When Musk responded to Griffin’s ban, he joked that her offense was “impersonating a comedian,” but then he added she could have her account back — if she paid the new $8 Twitter Blue monthly fee to be verified.
The twitter ban is the only justification for her PTSD, nothing else. Kathy Griffin has been nothing but nasty to republicans since Trump came down from the escalator in 2015 and she expects people to believe she has PTSD from nothing? We may not know what goes on in her private life but we sure do know what goes on in her public life. If it is indeed a real diagnosis, she might as well have seen the same Canadian doctor who diagnosed some woman with climate change.
