Suprise! Kathy Griffin No Longer Sorry for ‘Beheading’ Trump 
ENTERTAINMENT- In a move that surprised few, Kathy Griffin said she is no longer sorry for the photo of her holding up a severed dummy head of Donald Trump. 
The only thing surprising is that she had to go to the other end of the planet to make the comments. Griffin went on a tirade about Trump and the outrage over the photo on an Australian TV show.

“You’re full of crap,” Griffin said of her critics during the Aussie morning show. “Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the president of the United States is committing.” 
Apparently Griffin had a change of heart AFTER the Secret Service concluded its investigation into the photo.

"We have never closed our doors. We will continue to be a distribution center for those in need," said a church spokesman.

Social media lit up this morning with tweets and news reports claiming Osteen shuttered the Houston church and would not accept flood refugees.
