Kathy Griffin Cracks About Wasilla & Crystal Meth, Fights w/ Mom Who Loves Palin, O’Reilly, FNC

Appearing as a guest on Tuesday’s The View on ABC to promote her My Life on the D List show on Bravo! -- left-wing comedian Kathy Griffin took a shot at Sarah Palin by recalling her visit to Wasilla, Alaska – where Palin was once mayor – and by mocking the town by linking it to crystal meth: "I wanted to, you know, see what it's really like because when Sarah Palin was telling us that she should run the whole country the way she runs Wasilla, I just had to go for myself. And if you like crystal meth, you're gonna like Wasilla."

Griffin went on to admit that her mother – who sometimes takes part in her show on Bravo!, is a fan of Palin, Bill O’Reilly and Fox News. Griffin: "My mother, of course, loves her, and my mother loves Fox News and she loves Bill O'Reilly, and we get into big fights about it. She calls Bill O'Reilly her boyfriend because she's crazy."

She then imitated her mother: "‘Stop being so hard on my boyfriend, Bill O’Reilly, Kathleen, for crying out loud. He’s Irish, for crying out loud.’ She loves Bill O’Reilly."

Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Tuesday, June 15, The View on ABC:

KATHY GRIFFIN: I actually went to Wasilla, Alaska, because I played in Anchorage-

KASSIE DEPAIVA, GUEST CO-HOST: Who lives there?

GRIFFIN: My lover, Levi Johnston. Why? (AUDIENCE LAUGHTER) Are you suggesting that’s a relationship based on publicity?

DEPAIVA: I’m not sure. I want you to tell me.

GRIFFIN: All right, there’s a little age difference because, you know, he’s 19 and I’m 25 and a half. But, yes, I went to Wasilla, or "The Silla," as he calls it, and I wanted to, you know, see what it’s really like because when Sarah Palin was telling us that she should run the whole country the way she runs Wasilla, I just had to go for myself. And if you like crystal meth, you’re gonna like Wasilla.

...

JOY BEHAR: I don’t think she likes you.

GRIFFIN: I don’t think she’s a fan, although I did-

DEPAIVA: You don’t know? Unlike your mother.

GRIFFIN: You never know. She probably would like my mother. My mother, of course, loves her, and my mother loves Fox News and she loves Bill O’Reilly, and we get into big fights about it. She calls Bill O’Reilly her boyfriend because she’s crazy. (AUDIENCE LAUGHTER)

SHERRI SHEPHERD: So, speaking of, when you say, going back to the Sarah Palin not liking you-

GRIFFIN, IMITATING HER MOTHER: "Stop being so hard on my boyfriend, Bill O’Reilly, Kathleen, for crying out loud. He’s Irish, for crying out loud." She loves Bill O’Reilly.

BEHAR: Because he’s Irish.

GRIFFIN: Yeah, but also she’s crazy.
