Comedian Kathy Griffin is starring in a new photo shoot that features her holding the bloody, decapitated head of a figure that resembles President Donald Trump.
The shoot, documented by TMZ, was with famed photographer Tyler Shields, known for creating edgy photographs.
“Tyler and I are not afraid to do images that make noise,” said Griffin in a video posted by TMZ.
“First, I’m an artist,” she explains, as she is shown holding the gory image of the Trump lookalike near her own head.
Then she clowns with Shields about the possibility of her going to federal prison for her provocative posing and the immediate need to move south of the border.
“We have to move to Mexico today because we’re gonna go to prison. Federal prison. … Because we’re not surviving this, OK?”

TMZ also posted an online poll to gauge reaction to Griffin’s photo. With about 40,000 respondents, 72 percent say the photo goes “too far,” with 28 percent indicating it’s “fair game.”
Griffin is no stranger to controversy, and certainly no fan of Trump.
Following the president’s address to Congress in March, she told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews she didn’t enjoy having to “watch this idiot for an hour and nine minutes” say “one hateful thing after another.”
“I’m a big resister and I don’t believe in compromise with this president. I also think he’s crazy, I think he’s mentally ill. He’s also an idiot.”

As WND reported in 2007, Griffin used her appearance on the Emmy awards program to tell Jesus to “suck it” and to claim full credit for the honor for herself.
At the 59th annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards, she was honored for having the Outstanding Reality Program “My Life on the D-List,” overtaking ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” after several attempts.
“I guess hell froze over,” Griffin announced. “A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this. He had nothing to do with this. … Suck it, Jesus! This award is my god now.”
Griffin also kissed the crotch of CNN’s Anderson Cooper during a live New Year’s Eve broadcast as 2012 was becoming 2013.
