After comedian Kathy Griffin received heavy backlash for posting a picture of herself posing with a mock decapitated head of Donald Trump, she quickly issued an apology. The following morning, Trump decided to give his own thoughts on what took place.

Trump on Griffin

It's no secret that Donald Trump and celebrities out in Hollywood don't see eye to eye. After making his candidacy for president official back in June 2015, many celebrities pushed back, especially after Trump referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." Over the last two years, Trump has engaged in a war of words with many high-profiled names out in Hollywood, including, but not limited to, Alec Baldwin and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Trump has routinely become the butt of a joke for comedians, from "Saturday Night Live," to Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show," to Bill Maher. One of Trump's loudest critics has been Kathy Griffin, who has amped up her criticism of the billionaire real estate mogul ever since his inauguration last January. On Tuesday, Griffin came under fire after posting images of a recent photo-shoot where she posed with a bloody mock decapitated head of Trump. The story quickly took over the headlines and was instantly trending on social media. Griffin apologized, admitting she went "too far," but that didn't stop Trump from giving his thoughts during a May 31 rant on Twitter.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump fired back at Kathy Griffin, going as far as accusing her of making life difficult for his 11-year-old son Barron Trump.

"Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!" As of press time, Griffin hasn't offered a response to the president's tweet, and it's unknown if she will do so.

Additional tweets

In addition to his post about Kathy Griffin, Donald Trump tackled other issues during his early morning tweetstorm.

Just after midnight, Trump sent out a bizarre tweet, using the term "covfefe" for an unknown reason. In an attempt to spin the message using humor, Trump tweeted, "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!"

In a follow-up message on Twitter, Donald Trump got serious and decided to blast Democrats over their reaction to the recent firing of James Comey as director of the FBI.

"So now it is reported that the Democrats, who have excoriated Carter Page about Russia, don't want him to testify," Trump wrote on Twitter. In the second part of his tweet, Trump added, "He blows away their case against him & now wants to clear his name by showing 'the false or misleading testimony by James Comey, John Brennan...' Witch Hunt!"

Moving forward

Whether it's issues with a celebrity critic like Kathy Griffin, or the growing Russian scandal, Donald Trump appears backed against the wall in the White House. After just five months in office, the pressure is mounting on the president, but he doesn't look to be giving up at any point in the near future.
