Kathy Griffin ‘dons’ Trump mask and takes knee during LA show

Kathy Griffin dons a Trump mask and takes a knee as she returns to the stage after war with the president who she says is her ‘personal Harvey Weinstein’

Kathy Griffin feasted on her feud with Donald Trump as she boldly returned to the stage on Sunday night for her first stand-up show since their infamous falling out.

The star walked out on stage to a cheering 3,000 at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, proudly sporting a clean version of the bloody mask which sparked her feud with the president in May.

With her two middle fingers raised defiantly in the air, she then took a knee in protest against Trump, mimicking the hundreds of NFL players the president is now at war with over their on-the-field demonstrations.

Wearing the same blue pussybow dress in which she appeared in the controversial photograph with Trump’s bloodied, severed head, she then whipped off the mask to reveal her short hair, the result of her decision earlier this year to shave her head in support of her cancer-stricken sister.
