Kathy Griffin Calls Bristol Palin Fat at USO Salute to Troops

Vulgarian Kathy Griffin on Friday called Bristol Palin fat during her opening monologue of the USO's Divas Salute to the Troops.

"She's the only contestant in the history of ["Dancing with the Stars"] to actually gain weight," said Griffin. "She's like the white Precious" (video follows courtesy MTV.com with commentary):

For those not getting the so-called "joke," "Precious" is the Academy Award-winning 2009 film about an obese, illiterate, sexually abused, black, sixteen-year-old girl from Harlem.

Nice reference for a political figure's daughter, wouldn't you agree?

Makes you seriously question why the USO and VH1 would consider letting this disgraceful woman host the show airing at 9PM Sunday evening.

Compounding matters, Radar Online reported Saturday that at one point, Griffin came on stage in a camouflage bikini. Yes, that's the kind of respect our troops want to be shown.

On a more positive note, guest performers according to Military.com included Katy Perry, Sugarland, Keri Hilson, Nicki Minaj, Paramore, and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals.

Hopefully our military members in attendance at Miramar's Marine Corps Air Station in San Diego, and watching all over the world, enjoyed the event despite Griffin's involvement.
