Kathy Griffin: My Life on the PTSD-List, getting blacklisted by Hollywood, and starting a new chapter of her career
Kathy Griffin has been doing stand-up for decades, but it hasn’t always been a smooth road. In 2017, she posted a photo of herself with a bloody mask of Donald Trump, which launched a massive controversy, a Department of Justice investigation, and fears about the future of her career. Things only got worse after that. Kathy’s mother died, her sister died, she lost half of her left lung to cancer, she got divorced, and she was diagnosed with PTSD. Now, after six years, she’s finally embarking on a new tour called “My Life on the PTSD-List.” Kathy joins Tom to talk about this new chapter of her career, the intense backlash she faced, and whether Trump is still part of her material.
