Kathy Griffin is at it again. The comedian continued her criticism against the Trump administration on Twitter. Her newest target was political consultant Kellyanne Conway.

Griffin has long been a critic of Donald Trump’s presidency. In 2017, Griffin posted a picture of her holding a mask of President Trump with fake blood. Griffin said the stunt was satire, but the public criticized her actions.

In a tweet, Griffin wrote: “How’s that ‘taking time off to be a better mom’ thing going?” Conway had announced earlier this week that she was leaving her role as counselor to the Trump administration to devote her time to her children, according to The Washington Post.

In the tweet, Griffin also linked an article featuring Conway. In the article, Conway was asked about Kenosha, Wisconsin, the on-going site of several nights of protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake. A CNN reporter asked, ““Is the president calling on his supporters in Kenosha, people like Kyle Rittenhouse, to stop the violence?”

Rittenhouse was arrested for killing two and injuring a third Tuesday night in Kenosha. He’s to appear in court Friday for extradition back to Wisconsin, according to USA TODAY.

“The president wants everybody to stop the violence,” Conway said in response. “And I know you’re trying to conflate that individual with President Trump and you really shouldn’t do that. Just like CNN shouldn’t have had a chyron last night that said ‘mostly peaceful protests’ with fire in the background. So, that’s pretty offensive, Joe.”

Kathy Griffin also went after First Lady Melania Trump.

Griffin didn’t mince words when it came to her feelings. In response to the First Lady’s Republican National Convention speech, Griffin posted a profanity-laced tweet Tuesday. On Twitter, she wrote: “Seriously, f— this b—-.”

In Melania Trump’s 25-minute keynote speech, she addressed the protests against police brutality and racial inequality. She called for an end to the looting and violence.

“It is a harsh reality that we are not proud of parts of our history,” Trump also said. “Stop the violence and looting being done in the name of justice.”

In response to the tweet about Trump, Griffin received a vocal reaction online.
