Kathy Griffin Tweets Picture Of Herself With The Man At Center Of Donald Trump Jr. Russia Meeting

Perhaps no one among us has ever taken the classic Chumbawumba lyrics “I get knocked down, but I get up again, you’re never gonna keep me down” more to heart than Kathy Griffin. The comedian posted a picture to Twitter Monday of herself and Rob Goldstone, the unlikely British music publicist who has been named as a primary player in setting up Donald Trump Jr.’s Russian meeting.

The tweet raises questions, namely why, Kathy, at such a sensitive moment in your ravaged career, would you invite still further attention from America’s vengeful head of State and his henchmen?

Is it to prove to our country that you won’t be bullied by the president? Is it because you actually think this is a funny joke?

Or is it, as I suspect, because you know you look good in the photo? Because you do, you really do.

The Twitter responses to the photograph ranged from enthusiastic to admonishing to just plain mean.

And, of course:

We may never know.
