President Trump calls Kathy Griffin beheading photo ‘sick’

President Trump can’t get his head around Kathy Griffin’s controversial photo shoot.

Trump on Wednesday morning took a stab at the comic for posing with a fake, bloody rendering of his severed head in a photo that has already launched a Secret Service probe.

“Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!” Trump wrote.

It is his first comment about the photoshoot from the previous day that drew universal disgust, even from Griffin’s famous friends, such as CNN New Year’s Eve co-host Anderson Cooper. Squatty Potty, a toilet stool company, also suspended an ad campaign featuring the comic.

The Secret Service hinted on Twitter that it saw the photo as a threat of the “highest priority,” and TMZ reported Wednesday the agency opened an investigation into “the circumstances surrounding the photo shoot.” Agents are expected to talk to Griffin and the photographer, Tyler Shields.

Griffin apologized for the bloody pic Tuesday night, saying she “went too far.”

“The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn’t funny. I get it,” she said in a statement.

Shields told the Daily News the beheading photo was “art” and he would “never want anyone to be killed.”
