Kathy Griffin Blasts President Trump From Hospital Bed: "He's Lying" About Coronavirus Testing

Rae Batchelor 26 Mar 2020

Comedian Kathy Griffin has just fired back against President Donald Trump's recent claims on Twitter regarding the coronavirus pandemic and the United States' reaction towards it.

Information about the coronavirus pandemic is rapidly changing and Diply is committed to providing the most recent data as it becomes available. Some of the information in this story may have changed since publication, and we encourage readers to use online resources from CDC and WHO to stay up to date on the latest information surrounding COVID-19.

Kathy has been documenting her temperatures for weeks now.

She warned fans to stay home and practice social distancing.

"This may seem extreme to some of you. And I am not going on Information I’m gathering from Facebook and other social media, we are not leaving the house and my employees are not entering the house nor is anyone else for at least the next two weeks. In fact one of my full-time employees gets an entire floor of my house, as he is willing to be proactive in this way full-time night and day as well. In fact when we interact with him, we stand about 20 feet apart from each other. Trying to keep a sense of humor about that whole scene," she wrote.

On day two of social distancing, she shared that she was asymptomatic and "feeling fine".

Sadly, Kathy lost her mother a few days later, and she stopped sharing her temperature.

In 2017, Kathy infamously posed for a picture holding what was made to look like the severed head of Donald Trump, which many, including the President, found incredibly distasteful and inappropriate.
