"It's hurtful to me", Griffin said.
"The president, the first lady and the Secret Service have all made very clear their view on those thoughts", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.
Griffin addressed the backlash that followed the photo being published on Tuesday, telling reporters her career is over after she says the Trump family systematically "mobilized their armies" against her. I'm under a secret service investigation. they are using me as the shiny object so that no one is taking about this FBI investigation.
Republican Party spokesman Mike Reed called the press conference a desperate attempt to change the conversation.
"I'm not afraid of Donald Trump", Griffin stated, noting that she was really nervous.
However, she didn't seem cowed saying the President had gone after "the wrong red head". "Blood coming out of her wherever", Trump said then.
Kathy Griffin's attorney defended the woman by stating that comedians are allowed to be edgy. Despite the takedown, Kathy said, "I have to stand up".
But the focus of the presser was on the "bullying" Griffin has endured from the first family over the photo.
Bloom explained that Griffin never believed the photo could be thought of as a threat of violence.
Bloom, who represented Fox News contributor Wendy Walsh in her sexual harassment case against Bill O'Reilly, said that Griffin "has been vilified, getting death threats, fired from multiple jobs and had multiple events canceled".
The 56-year-old actress faced a lot of backlash on social media after she shared the picture, which was a part of her photoshoot with famed photographer Tyler Shields, on Twitter. "I'm going to be honest, he broke me", Griffin said, breaking into tears.
He says he takes seriously that Minnesotans were upset by her behavior, which he characterizes as "inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere" in the national discourse. While theaters and venues are dropping scheduled shows.
