Donald Trump and family are trying to ruin my career: Kathy

She said one of the worst parts of the conference was when Griffin lied and said that she would never hurt a child, in reference to Trump's tweet that his 11-year-old son, Barron, is "having a hard time with this". "The President, his grown children and the First Lady are trying to ruin my life forever", Griffin said, calling Trump "a bully".

At a rambling press conference on Friday, Griffin tearfully predicted her career was over and said Mr Trump "broke me".

Griffin said the photo was meant to mock Trump's comments during the presidential campaign, when he told CNN that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her - wherever" when she moderated a 2015 presidential debate.

But Griffin said she feels personally attacked by the president and his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who lashed out at the comedian on Twitter, tagging Griffin's employers in a series of posts and insisting that she be fired.

In addition to her canceled tour dates, Griffin has also been fired from her gig co-hosting CNN's New Year's Eve special with Anderson Cooper. "I love what do, I love making people laugh more than anything in the world".

Bloom continued, "Kathy never imagined it could be misinterpreted as a threat of violence against Trump".

The photo, featuring the president's ketchup-bloodied likeness, Griffin explained, was inspired by Trump's comments about Megyn Kelly during the presidential campaign.

Backlash against Griffin continues to grow with at least four theatres announcing Thursday that they had cancelled her performances.

The 56-year-old comedian said those statements prompted her to pose with the Trump severed head, which was a mask mounted on a Styrofoam wig mold.

"I'm not afraid of Trump", she said.

"Kathy Griffin's career was long over before she attempted to make a disgusting joke about decapitating the President", Mr Reed said.

Griffin has just retained celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom, who tweeted that she'll appear later today with her new client at a press conference. Carrey said that Griffin should have held up a "severed leg as well", and said that comedians have a responsibility to push boundaries. Toilet footstool creator Squatty Potty also dumped her endorsement deal.

Griffin initially apologized for the photo after it received widespread criticism across the political spectrum, saying she had "moved the line" and then "crossed it". While theaters and venues are dropping scheduled shows.
