Trump Jr. Slams Kathy Griffin for Claiming Victimhood: ‘She Deserves Everything That’s Coming to Her’

Donald Trump's eldest son slammed Kathy Griffin for claiming victimhood after the backlash to her controversial photo holding a decapitated head of President Trump, saying she deserves whatever she gets.

"To run and claim victimhood, she deserves everything that's coming to her," Donald Trump, Jr., said Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Griffin initially apologized for posing with the disturbing image, and CNN dropped her from her annual New Year's Eve special alongside Anderson Cooper.

However, she reversed course with a Friday press conference alongside civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom, where she tearfully said the Trump family was bullying her and "broke" her. Griffin's erratic demeanor was widely panned; USA Today said it was a "D-list" showing, and Salon called it "mad" and "looping."

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump released statements condemning Griffin's photo stunt, saying it cruelly affected their young son, Barron.

Trump, Jr., said his family's reaction to the controversy was appropriate.

"Naturally, I was pretty disgusted," he said." "Everyone who's watching right now saw what happened. They saw my father's response. They saw the First Lady's response about her son and how it affected him. They saw my response. I don't think we've ever been so measured, perhaps, on a relative basis."

Trump, Jr., tweeted last week that Griffin was a "victim of her own ignorance" and mocked her "fake apology."
