“One of the reasons I wanted to make the movie for real, is like, I want you to laugh more than anything, but but I really want you guys to know that what happened to me could happen to you,” Kathy told the audience, explaining how she was “put under a federal investigation by the Secret Service and U.S. Attorney’s office” in the wake of the incident.

“I was on the no-fly list for two months… Interrogated under oath,” Kathy continued. “And they were considering charging me with the crime of conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States, which holds a lifetime sentence.”

“So, one of the things I want you guys to know is — when you go to the airport, I’m sorry to say, they can take your phone. They can take your SIM card. They can take your passport. I filed two FOIAs. I still don’t know what was on my passport,” Kathy Griffin added. “Then I was put on what’s called the Interpol list.”
