No, I don't hate Kathy Griffin. Far from it. And she had the right to do what she did - but wasn't very... smart about it. Ms. Griffin isn't a satirist and made herself the center of the story, inevitably. Not what a satirist does. Maybe she wasn't doing satire; I really have no idea what the point was other than saying, "I hate Trump," which is fine. But so what and why? The photo she made doesn't even vaguely suggest an answer. That the Secret Service is all over her now is ridiculous.
Anyway, as I have no publisher or money to self-publish Retro-Intro-Spectacular, I'm writing an essay, first pass, on satire, what it is, isn't, and a how-to primer. I'll post the link when I get that done. Assuming you wish to read such.
This is an illustration to show how Ms. Griffin might have done this as satire. It's nothing great, but it is more effective. I get Secret Service for this, bastards can talk tothe ACLU.
