Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, whose daughter was once a target of ridicule by Kathy Griffin, turned the tables and ridiculed Griffin’s claims of being a victim after Griffin’s publicity stunt gave the comedian more negative publicity than she could have ever imagined.
In 2011, Griffin made a New Year’s resolution that touched on the Palin family.
“I’ve already gone for Sarah, Todd and Bristol obviously,” Griffin said. “But I think it’s Willow’s year to go down. In 2011, I want to offend a new Palin.”
With Griffin already under fire for the photo in which she held a prop resembling the severed head of President Donald Trump, Palin decided the time had come to add her voice to the national clamor against Griffin.
“Kathy Griffin has mercilessly attacked children for years,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page.

“When this ‘celebrity’ (who ‘celebrates her, btw?) traveled all the way to Wasilla and actually knocked on my home’s door to personally humiliate my kids again, I knew she was deranged,” Palin wrote.
Griffin had left a note that read, “Dear Palins who are 18 years old or older (mostly Sarah). I’m doing a funny comedy show on Friday night at the Anchorage Performing Arts Centre. Come see me. I’ll even comp you or at least a two-for. xoxo, Kathy Griffin.”
“You can’t do nicer than that,” Griffin said in a 2010 show, which came not long after Griffin had been poking fun at Bristol Palin about her weight.
However, Palin said there was never anything nice about Griffin.
“The liberal ‘star’ had attacked my teenage daughters for so long — first Bristol then, inexplicably, giddily announced she would ‘go directly after Willow Palin’ despite Willow’s young age and innocence in doing anything to earn the wrath of this attacker,” Palin wrote.
Palin then turned her wrath on the comedian.
“And today Kathy claims SHE is the victim! Kathy’s crocodile tears at her publicity-seeking press conference today mean nothing to mothers who’ve witnessed the ramifications her sick acts have had on precious children,” she posted.
“So, on behalf of Melania Trump and other mothers who’ve tried to protect our children from Kathy’s soulless vile attacks, I’ll bite my tongue in print and not say what I’d actually tell her to her face,” Palin wrote.
But there was something more to come.
“I’ll keep it civil and merely tell her after her ridiculous self-serving statements today: Suck it. Up. Cupcake,” Palin wrote.
