    They did.
    Admittedly, nobody as pathetic as Kathy Griffin did a stunt like this, but there were probably dozens of incidents.

    Can you post some incidents that are even close that was/were done towards Obama?

    "Our number one priority is to see this president fail."

    Sorry, but the majority leader of the senate carries a hell of a lot more weight and influence than some, apparently washed up comedian I never heard of, doing a stupid publicity stunt that's been widely condemned. But keep going on with your faux outrage. Has Trump officially spoken about his outrage over the Portland stabbing that resulted in two deaths? Brilliant leadership right there.

    Nobody as famous as Kathy Griffin, of course, but that's not saying much because she's essentially famous for trying to be famous and failing.

    I won't be engaging this topic for long because she is a hack and doesn't deserve the attention this has drawn.  Her political opinions are amateur and her comedy is even worse.

    I agree with you that this was not good and she is should be ashamed just like alot of people should have been ashamed about the birther movement.  which one was worse?

    She's an "edgy" comedian, apparently. Edgy comedians talk about this kind of stuff all the time and no one pays much attention to them, because they're just comedians. This stunt was gross and excessive and not even funny. 

    And in a quick scan online I don't see anyone lauding this. It's not like this has widespread approval. Not like, say, politicians who assault reporters and get all sorts of kudos for it.

    Hopefully they would have received condemnation from everyone, no matter the political leanings. It was wrong and that's why she has apologized...more than certain presidents have done. I repeat myself here.

    Right? This story was on the morning news in Canada and I'm sure in many other countries around the world. I don't think the incident is being taken particularly lightly, lol. I'm not sure what kind of outrage people are looking for here. Would they like everyone to riot in the streets about it or what? As far as I can tell, there is more outrage about this than there ever was about Obama effigies, simply because the person who did it is "famous".

    This is so wrong. It's awful. Trump's tweet is pretty awful as well if he mentions his son being upset just to get attention and his son has never seen it (that's my thoughts, so it certainly might not be true). Everyone should be losing their shit over this. I'm not into the the whole "fire that person" etc crap that many seem to jump on whenever someone makes a mistake. But in this case, I do think she should be more accountable then just say "sorry". It's a legit threat against a sitting president. If other people's comments matter and they should be accountable for the idiots that mimic them or take it to the next level (and they should)....then she certainly should be held accountable as well. No - the motivation does matter some...so in my opinion a picture of a hanging Obama is still worse than this.
