Effigies and the Fact that Kathy Griffin Isn’t Unique

Recently, I was faced with an outraged statement from one of my family members. They were very upset that Kathy Griffin used a dummy head modeled after President Trump. I mentioned that there were public lynchings of dummies of President Obama. The relative stated that they had never seen those effigies.

Here are some fucking links:

So there you have it. President Trump is getting similar treatment to what President Obama experienced. I might post more if I find them.
