Kathy Griffin slammed Donald Trump again on Thursday. In a new tweet, the comedienne said the president “likes to punch down” other people, but argued that his proposed healthcare bill could cause millions of Americans to lose health insurance.

“POTUS likes to punch down,” Griffin wrote. “Whether it’s anchors, US Attorneys, or standup comics. Meanwhile, millions are about to lose health insurance.” The comedienne is seemingly referring to a report earlier this week from the Congressional Budget Office, indicating that 22 million people would lose health care under the current version of Trumpcare. As for the “anchors” mentioned in Griffin’s tweet, she’s presumably talking about “Morning Joe” co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.

As Gossip Cop reported, Trump slammed Brzezinski and Scarborough on Twitter earlier Thursday after they criticized him on their MSNBC show. The president wrote, “I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

Of course, Griffin’s latest tweet comes on the heels of the controversy surrounding her photo of Trump’s fake decapitated head. As Gossip Cop reported earlier this week, Griffin tweeted about being under federal investigation over the image, before calling out TMZ for often publishing pro-Trump articles. The website was the first to report on Griffin’s beheading picture last month, and also wrote an exclusive follow-up story saying the president’s 11-year-old son Barron was traumatized by the picture. Despite receiving a ton of backlash and losing jobs over the controversial photo, Griffin has continued to express her disdain for Trump, as is evident by her latest tweet.
