ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Kathy Griffin, the sometimes comedian who was just ousted from her sometime CNN hosting slot — and fired from New Year’s Eve broadcasting duties — after she posed for pictures while holding a faux bloodied head of President Donald Trump, may have apologized for her outrageous behavior.

But know what else she’s now doing? Griffin’s going victimhood.

She’s holding a press conference to explain all the mean ways the Trump family has treated her and to “explain the true motivation behind the image,” she said, through her attorney Lisa Bloom.

This is almost too rich for words.

In a video released Tuesday night, in the aftermath of the sparks that flew far and wide from her ridiculous political protest-slash-joke, Griffin said: “I’m a comic. I cross the line. I move the line and then I cross it. I went way too far.”

No duh to that.

But two days later, she’s singing a different tune.

Bloom tweeted an announcement of their Friday press conference.

“Proud to announce that I represent Kathy Griffin,” Bloom wrote.

And the details followed.

“Earlier this week, Ms. Griffin released a controversial photograph of herself posing with a faux-bloody mask of Donald Trump’s face,” the official press release read. “Ms. Griffin and Ms. Bloom will explain the true motivation behind the image, and respond to the bullying from the Trump family she has endured.”

What? Bullying from the Trump family?

Yes, first lady Melania Trump issued some scathing criticism against Griffin for the tasteless display. Her son, Barron, after all had reportedly seen the image on television and went into panic mode. And Trump himself tweeted of the offense his children had taken at seeing the picture — writing, too, that he believed Griffin’s apology was “phony.”

But bullying?

We’re to believe Griffin’s the victim?

This is classic left — classic liberal-minded thinking. Start the fire, and when the heat comes, scream loud enough to distract from the fact you were the one who brought the matches in the first place.
