She says, "I made the film because I want everyone to know that if you had done it [posted the photo of her holding Trump's severed head] or if somebody's 13-year-old kid had done it and put it up online, you didn't break the law, you didn't violate the first amendment, you shouldn't have been put under a federal investigation or on the No Fly List like a terrorist, or the INTERPOL list like I was."As we move into the 2020 election, Kathy Griffin wants people to be aware of the power of their vote.
