Kathy Griffin, 59, is rushed to the ER with chest pains but says she is not allowed to get tested for COVID-19 before blaming Donald Trump

Comedienne Kathy Griffin said she had to go to the hospital after suffering ‘UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms’ that seemed to be linked to COVID-19.

But once inside the ER, the My Life On The D-List star said she could not get tested for the virus due to CDC restrictions even though she was at a ‘major’ hospital.

And the 59-year-old star blamed President Donald Trump and his Vice President Mike Pence for not making the tests available.

She took to social media to get her point across. The stand-up also shared a photo of herself in the hospital. She wore a mask and was under quarantine.

Griffin explained that even though her symptoms were serious, she was considered not eligible for the test.

Kathy also shared a grab of Trump’s tweet from Wednesday. 

‘Just reported that the United States has done far more “testing” than any other nation, by far!’ said Trump.

‘In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!’

Kathy said that the President was ‘lying.’

Griffin explained: ‘I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. 

‘The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions.’

She has lashed out at Trump before. In 2017 she posted a video of herself to Instagram where she was holding a mask made to look like the severed, bloody head of Trump.

‘I caption this “there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his…wherever,”‘ she said.

The shoot was from photographer Tyler Shields. 

Griffin later took down the image, and apologized publicly. CNN fired her from its New Year’s Eve broadcast with Anderson Cooper because of it.
