Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., condemned Kathy Griffin's acts following her Tuesday posting of a photo depicting herself holding a faux decapitated President Trump head, despite her financial support of his campaigns.
"Sen. Franken thinks Kathy Griffin is a talented comedian and respects her right to free speech, but believes this image was inappropriate and not the kind of thing that should be part of our national discourse," Michael Dale Stein, spokesperson for Franken told Politico.
Griffin has donated thousands of dollars to Franken and other Democrats political campaigns, according to FEC reports.
Franken had planned to attend an event that will feature Griffin on July 7 in Beverly Hills promoting his new book: Al Franken: Giant of the Senate. It is now unclear whether that event will take place.
