A few years ago, there was a show, Mrs. Eastwood and Company that starred Clint Eastwood’s wife (at the time) Dina and their two daughters Francesca and Morgan. It was a trainwreck of a show. Dina had this weird band she was representing and they were living in the house for filming. It was all very odd and fascinating. Francesca was dating a guy named Tyler Shields who was a photographer. More specifically, Tyler was a shock photographer. He was a really creepy guy. On the show he did a shoot with Francesa where she poured gasoline on a $100,000 Birkin bag and lit it on fire. Both Francesca and Tyler received death threats for that. Tyler has continued to shoot very controversial things.
Tyler it seems has hooked up with Kathy Griffin, a comedian who also likes to do things for shock value. I am a fan of Kathy Griffin. I loved her strong black woman comedy routine. I loved Life on the D List. She’s funny. These photos and videos are not funny.
UPDATED. Kathy has taken down the image and issued the above apology.
But what she has done now with this Tyler idiot is not funny and it may well be the end of her career. There are groups of people on the liberal left that are beyond distraught over the current president. I get it. He is saying and doing a lot of disturbing things. My anxiety goes through the roof each day when I check with the news to see what new dangers were are facing. Times are scary for people of all political backgrounds.
But we are all on the same pilotless plane together. I’m going to need to see less histrionics and more calm leadership. I need fewer people thrashing about in their seats screaming that we are all going to die and more stoic flight attendants pretending like things are going to be okay. Most importantly, I need a Captain Sully to appear from somewhere on the plane and make an emergency landing.
Today Kathy and and Tyler are the screaming lunatics on either side of me in a middle seat on a plane without a pilot. This is not helping.
It’s a shame because we could all use some of Kathy’s hilarious humor these days. That would help.
Those are my thoughts. What are yours?
