Anti-Trump former “comedian” Kathy Griffin claims she had to go to the hospital after suffering “UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms” that she claims were linked to COVID-19.

Griffin used the incident to slam President Trump. She claims once she was inside the ER, she couldn’t get tested for the virus due to “CDC restrictions” even though she was at a “major” hospital.

The 59-year-old former “star” blamed President Donald Trump and his Vice President Mike Pence for not making the tests available.

She posted a picture of herself with a “mask” on, as well as the “quarantined ICU room” in a tweet. She was responding to a tweet President Trump published that read:

Do you think President Joe Biden is doing a good job?

“Just reported that the United States has done far more “testing” than any other nation, by far! In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!”

Here’s what Kathy said:

“He’s lying. I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions. ”

However, internet sleuths detected some “funny business” with Griffin’s story and called her out on it:

“Why no oxygen? Pretty standard in such a serious respiratory condition.”

“So you are in a ward when you HAVENT tested positive. Ummmm.. something is off here”

“So the hospital put you in the COVID-19 ward without knowing you had COVID-19?”

“If you’re in the hospital and aren’t being tested it’s because the doctors see no need to test you.”

Other people simply pointed out her pettiness:

“Even on a hospital bed, you take the time out to hate on President Trump! Well… that’s certainly some commitment.”

“Kathy Griffin tries to be the Jussee Smollett of Wuhan COVID19.”

I wouldn’t it put it past this nutjob to be faking this for attention.

Either way, we hope Kathy gets better and also hope she finds a vaccine to help fight her raging case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
