Kathy Griffin discussed her friendship with Stormy Daniels as she appeared on Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Griffin, 57, who was famously dropped from CNN’s 2017 New Year’s Eve broadcast over that controversial decapitated Donald Trump snap, told the host: “When I met her, Stormy came to see me on on my almost sold-out world tour, ‘Kathy Griffin: Laugh Your Head Off’ tour, and she came to see me in Boston and I snuck her in because obviously there’s safety issues.”
“We obviously hit it off, and when we met backstage I go ‘Hi Thelma, I’m Louise, let’s take this a******e down,'” she added of Daniels, who hit headlines after it was reported that she’d been paid $130,000 to keep quiet about an alleged affair with the president back in 2006.
Griffin went on, “We become friends obviously, God love her.”
Not ending the chat there, the comedienne continued: “She had consensual sex with the orange idiot. My theory is, being a porn girl she was like, ‘Look this’ll take five minutes, let’s get it over with.’ But, every time I would tease her about his actual man parts, she would just go ‘Urgh!’ So, of course we get along!”
Talking briefly about that infamous Trump snap, Griffin added: “The picture that was supposed to take me down ended up being the photo that lets me tour the world.”
