PR stunt today attempts to turn tables as pendulum swung against her.. CNN fired her. And the President questioned her mental health.
“That apology absolutely stands,” Griffin said at the packed morning news conference held at her attorney’s office in Woodland Hills. “I apologized because it was the right thing to do and I meant it.”
“Then I saw the tide turning,” she continued, adding that she has received death threats. “I saw what was happening. It was a mob mentality pile-on.”
Public outrage over the photo was immediate on Tuesday, and Griffin apologized soon after, but the damage had already been done.
President Trump and family speculated on Twitter about Griffin’s mental health, saying that she should be ashamed and calling for CNN to fire her from her New Year’s Eve hosting gig, which the cable news network did.
