Kathy Griffin trades barbs with Tomi Lahren – who dressed as comedian for Halloween (Photo)

So much for keeping politically-charged ire out of Halloween this year. Kathy Griffin is firing back at conservative pundit Tomi Lahren after Lahren decided to dress up as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” for Halloween.

Lahren on Wednesday morning posted a photo of her recreating Griffin’s notorious photo, in which she held a bloody mask of Donald Trump as though he were decapitated. Lahren wore a bright red wig to portray Griffin’s hair and held a crazed clown mask.

“Gosh you are just so original @TomiLahren! I thought images like this one incite violence,” Griffin said in response to Lahren’s photo. “At least that’s what you and your colleagues at @FoxNews have told me for the past year and a half.”

Griffin went on, saying that she would gladly return the favor to Lahren this Halloween if she weren’t on tour.

“I’m busy on tour right now or I’d dress up as you: a dumb, racist, and talentless hack,” Griffin tweeted Wednesday.

Did you miss the debut of The Snowflake Awards? Don't worry because they are streaming on my official FB page NOW! This extended edition includes our bloopers because unlike Snowflakes, we can laugh at ourselves! The Snowflake Awards was established to honor notable hypersensitive citizens, those who, when subjected to the slightest pressures of life, begin to melt! For too long the entertaining societal contributions of these delicate celebrities were overlooked! Sadly, we were content to take them seriously instead of recognizing their greatest gift; a never-ending goldmine of mock-able material that helps us realize how wonderful our lives are! No more. @docthompsonshow and I take on pop culture elitism and hypocrisy like you’ve never seen before! Visit https://dnc-trophy.myshopify.com/collections/all to get your commemorative Snowflake Awards tshirt! #TeamTomi #TheFlakies #snowflakes #SnowflakeAwards
After last night's speech it's safe to say OUR President Trump is indeed Making America Great Again. The radical notion Americans come first in our own damn country (established November 8th, 2016). I'll be on with @seanhannity tonight to discuss the speech! P.S. The hat is from @drunkamerica and it's my new favorite! #TeamTomi #godblessamerica #drunkAmerica
Will be signing this bad boy for auction after tonight's @allenamericans @rapidcityrush game! Proceeds to benefit Folds of America-the mission: provide educational scholarships to the spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service-members. #TeamTomi #AllenAmericans #foldsofAmerica #honorthem #godblessamerica #hockey
That crazy and radical notion Americans and American safety take priority over feelings. #TeamTomi #AmericaFirst #AboutTime #mark19apparel
Life goes on and while it does, our brave men and women are overseas making a sacrifice so we don't have to. Remember Everyone Deployed. These kickass leggings are made by veteran owned and operated @mark19apparel #TeamTomi #RED #supportthetroops #Mark19 #leggingsarepants
We lost some fantastic and admirable celebrities in 2016 but what about our LEOs, first responders and service members? They sacrificed for us, for our country, our safety and our freedom. Here's to them. Home of the free because of the brave. #TeamTomi #backtheblue #godblessamerica #brookeandarrow #hartsandpearls #MAGA #USA #Merica
They call me "savage" but you can call me whatever you like. Just know I'm fearless, fiercely patriotic, and I don't back down. New Final Thoughts posted. #TeamTomi #fearless #bulletsandbombshells #tacticalshit
Don't forget to catch me with @trevornoah on @comedycentral @thedailyshow at 11pmET tonight!! #TeamTomi #DailyShow #trevornoah #NYC #latenightthoughts #comedycentral
It was "Bring your Favorite Sign to Work Day" here @theblazetv and I thought maybe considering last night, this one would do. My Victory Final Thoughts are posted now! "We said 'screw your way, we're gonna do it our way.'" #TeamTomi #MAGA #PresidentTrump #AmericaFirst #election2016 #finalthoughts
I stand by Don because he doesn't back down. I respect that. Wouldn't it be nice if America stopped backing down and started doubling down like DJT? Sorry, I'm not the type of woman to sit in the corner and cry over spilled milk and the "p" word. Final thoughts on #trumptapes posted now. #TeamTomi #MAGA #standup #election2016 #neverhillary
Rocking that @hartsandpearls red, white, and blue headband! Some extra love for Old Glory today just to remind Hillary that the deplorables have left her basket and we ready to take November! #TeamTomi #hartsandpearls #camo #redwhiteandblue #maga
Live. Speak. Stand. Run. Carry with Confidence. Ladies, chances are your assailant is gonna be bigger, stronger and faster and that’s why you have @alexoathletica for your gun, your mace, or even your phone. Yeah, you’ve got it covered. #TeamTomi #alexoathletica #NotYourAverageGunGirl

Lahren replied to Griffin, saying how she should’ve amended her Halloween costume, which Griffin in turn retweeted.

“You’re right Kathy, if I was trying to impersonate you I should have worn the clown mask instead,” Lahren said. “That’s my bad! Happy Halloween!”

The photo in question brought the comedian and former reality TV star’s career to a screeching halt, but Griffin has been staging a comeback as she remains very vocal on Twitter, despite often being a target of many on the right.

Lahren and Griffin have feuded frequently in the past. Lahren previously sent one tweet saying, “Truth is the new hate speech,” which Griffin quote tweeted with the caption, “Dumb is the new smart.”

Griffin also previously said she had received an interview request from Lahren’s camp, an opportunity she didn’t exactly welcome with open arms.

“Dear @TomiLahren, You and your network told me my career was over and that I was irrelevant,” Griffin responded. “Now you want to interview me. Not only do I not want to waste my time with you, I’m too busy selling out shows on my US tour.”

Happy Halloween! 🎃 . Tomatillo Salsa 1 almost full gallon size bag of tomatillos (from my garden🤗). 3 cloves of garlic, trimmed but not peeled 2 whole jalapeños (or more if you want more spice) 2 or 3 limes Salt Olive oil 1 or 2 ripe avocados . 1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with tin foil. 2. Remove husks from tomatillos. Rinse and dry. Place on baking sheet. 3. Drizzle and coat with olive oil. 4. Add whole jalapeños and garlic to baking sheet. 5. Bake for about 30 minutes. You want the tomatillos softened, but not bursting. Jalapeños and garlic should be soft, as well. 6. Pull stems off jalapeños. Squeeze garlic from its shell. 7. Transfer everything to blender. Squeeze in lime juice and add a little salt. 8. Blend until smooth (leave the lid off a bit and cover with a towel to let the steam escape). 9. Transfer to bowl and let cool. 10. Refrigerate. 11. Add more salt to taste. Add diced avocado. 12. Cast a spell. Yum.
