Democrat Tim Crone wrote on Facebook late Wednesday that he endorsed comedian Kathy Griffin’s posting of the Trump image and called the Native American-owned Route 66 Casino a “loser, redneck” venue for canceling an upcoming Griffin show over the video.

Griffin, who helped with CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage, has apologized, saying that the brief video was “too disturbing” and wasn’t funny.
