Comedian Kathy Griffin is at it again. This time, she tried telling angel moms that President Donald Trump didn’t care about their children dying at the hands of undocumented immigrants.
Griffin claimed that Trump used those mothers as tools for “propaganda.”
She was referring to the same press conference where angel mom Sabine Durden expressed her grief over losing her son and indicated that Trump’s campaign announcement dissuaded her from taking her own life.
Message to the parents who are on stage with Trump at this press conference…I am so sorry for your loss..but the man you're standing with (Trump) could give two shits…he's using you for propaganda.

“I brought my son. This is what I have left, his ashes. I wear his ashes in a locket, this is how I hug my son…All politicians. I don't care what side you are, you don't want your children in a casket or urn. So get it together for God's sake.” — Sabine Durden, Angel mom pic.twitter.com/waYvjNC64c

“But President Trump coming down that escalator that day and talking about illegal immigration stopped me in my track[s],” she said.
When Fox News host Laura Ingraham asked Durden about Griffin’s comments, she had a scathing response.
“[Griffin] needs to go [to] a stage somewhere in little back alley and entertain the two people that are still following her,” Durden told Ingraham on Friday.
Durden also said that Griffin had no “soul.”
“She has no soul. She has no heart. And I pray to God she never knows this feeling,” Durden said.
Griffin’s comments came at a time of intense debate surrounding immigration, especially after Trump’s administration separated migrant families at the southern border.
While celebrities and other media figures harped on the plight of migrant children, some argued the media didn’t focus enough on victims of undocumented immigration.
Angel mom Agnes Gibboney told Fox News on Friday what she thought “separation of a family really is”:
“The media doesn’t report truthfully what separation of families really is. But I would like to show everybody what real separation of families is. This is — what separates my son and myself is a coffin and six feet of dirt. How is that for real separation of families.”
