On Wednesday, in a flurry of tweets, he called her subsequent apology "phony." He also mocked CNN for lacking the "moral and ethical standards" of Squatty Potty, the toilet stool company who fired Griffin before they did.In a statement, first lady Melania Trump said the incident makes one "wonder about the mental health of the person who did it."Bloom said that her client never imagined it could be misinterpreted as a threat of violence against Trump."That was never what she intended."In addition to losing her New Year's TV gig on CNN, an endorsement and several standup performances, Griffin has received "detailed, specific" death threats and is under investigation by the United States Secret Service, which her criminal attorney, Dmitry Gorin, expects will be resolved in her favor.Griffin's hands shook and her voice occasionally became choked as she discussed the emotional impact of the last week."He broke me and then i I was like 'No, this isn’t right'. Then it became a mob mentality pile-on."Bloom says her client is not in a fair fight."He’s not just Donald Trump, real estate developer, having a celebrity feud," she said.Kathy Griffin and civil-rights lawyer Lisa Bloom came for Donald Trump Friday."i’m not afraid of Trump," she said. I’ve dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole career."She spoke to reporters in order to address what they both view as a disproportionate response by the president and his family after she posed with a fake, severed Trump head for photographer Tyler Shields.

CNN fired her from her annual gig co-hosting its New Year's Eve broadcast with Anderson Cooper, her longtime pal, who declined to back her.
(They have since reconciled.)At a press conference a few days later, she was by turns defiant and contrite, and especially tearful about Cooper's public scolding of her stunt. CNN on May 31, 2017, fired the comedian from its annual New Year's Eve coverage.
Trump responded, saying the comedian should be ashamed of herself.
Kathy Griffin's Trump dustup is officially costing her money.
