Kathy Griffin accuses CNN of a double standard after firing her and keeping Jeffrey Toobin

When Ana Navarro asked Griffin on The View her thoughts on Republican Rep. Paul Gosar tweeting an anime video showing him killing Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and targeting President Joe Biden, Griffin did not directly answer the question. "I think there’s another conversation that we’re not ready to have yet in this country, unfortunately," Griffin said, per Mediaite. "We’re hopefully making some strides, finally, with race. We’re having conversations, at least. But I think that we haven’t really talked about the level of misogyny and ageism that went along with all of that.

But then for me to watch Jeffrey Toobin talking about woman’s choice after he masturbated on a Zoom call, which I know sounds funny but maybe it wasn’t so funny for the other ladies who worked at The Atlantic that had to see that."
