Kathy Griffin Returns To Comedy Stage Wearing Trump Mask

Kathy Griffin has donned the Donald once again.

In her return to comedy Sunday night, Griffin took the stage sporting a Donald Trump mask and flipping the bird.

The comedian's career was rocked earlier this summer after a photo featuring her holding a fake, bloodied and severed Donald Trump head went viral.

She was sacked from her New Year's Eve gig at CNN, condemned by a bevy of celebrities — including pal Anderson Cooper — and had multiple stand-up gigs axed in the wake of the backlash.

Hollywood women must give Weinstein the Trump treatment

But it seems the Donald drama didn't get to her. Performing at a charity event and for the first time since the controversy, Griffin seemed to embrace it, and emerged on stage waving her two middle fingers in the air while wearing the (blood-free) Trump mask in a dress that appeared very similar to the one in the original photo.

Comedians who have gone too far

Griffin — who referred to herself Sunday as a "comedy fugitive" — has remained unremorseful, despite scathing criticisms from Hollywood and the White House, including Trump himself.

Following an initial tearful apology, she later appeared to take it back, saying on an Australian talk show that Trump's policies should be getting more attention than her silly photo.

"Stop acting like my little picture is more important than talking about the actual atrocities that the President of the United States is committing," she said after referring to Trump as a "fool."

Meanwhile, Griffin also lashed out at Harvey Weinstein Sunday night, calling him a "rapist." The famed film producer was the subject of a bombshell New York Times expose published last week that claimed he has been sexually harassing women in the industry for decades.

Hollywood stars accused of sexual harassment and assault

"The Weinstein thing is just f--king unbelievable but I'm not afraid to say anything because I don't appear in movies ever and no one will ever put me in one," she said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "That guy seems to be what's called a rapist. I'm using it as a broad term. There's a lot of them and they are everywhere. So it's time we started to f--king look out for each other because this s--t has been going on for way too long."

Griffin joins Meryl Streep and Dame Judi Dench, among others, who have condemned Weinstein in the wake of the disturbing allegations.
