Liberal comedian Kathy Griffin found herself in headlines once again as she taunted White House Pres Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders with a profane insult to her name.
While speaking at Politicon, Griffin referred to Sanders as “Sarah F**kabee” while sitting next to Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who represents adult film star Stormy Daniels.
The moment was caught on camera and met with a slight applause from a few audience members. Griffin was asked if she ever regrets what she said about President Donald Trump or members of his administration, and her answer appears to show she does not regret anything.

This is not the first time that Griffin has vocally gone after Sanders.
In May, the comedian got angry after Sanders mentioned Griffin during a press briefing. This warning was posted on Twitter and not said out loud, in person, like the video above.
Here’s what SF Gate reported at the time:
“Kathy Griffin had some stern words for White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday, after Sanders invoked Griffin’s name during a press briefing.
Griffin, who suffered considerable fallout last year after posing for photographs with an object that resembled the severed head of President Trump, responded to the mention via Twitter, saying, “B***h, do not come for me.”
Griffin’s deplorable stunt backfired, as she was dropped by CNN and Squatty Potty, but she continued going on a comedy tour.
Many people aren’t sure when entertainers decided to get mixed-up in politics, but it’s a known fact that a lot of people would like Hollywood much better without the unnecessary side order of politics.
Kathy posted this video on Monday via Twitter, and many who oppose her views found the video appalling.
We’re down to the last four shows on my world tour!
Watch the video to find out which cities are left!
