Keith Olbermann says that a photo of comedian Kathy Griffin posing with a fake decapitated head resembling President Trump is “way too much.”

“Nope,” Olbermann, who hosts a political web series for GQ, tweeted Tuesday. “Too much. By a very long distance, way too much.”

{mosads}Griffin earlier Tuesday defended posing for photographer Tyler Shields with a gory, severed head resembling Trump.

“I caption this ‘there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his…wherever,” she tweeted, referencing Trump’s campaign trail comments about former Fox News host Megyn Kelly.

“OBVIOUSLY, I do not condone ANY violence by my fans or others to anyone, ever!” Griffin added in a second tweet. “I’m merely mocking the Mocker in Chief.”

“Kathy Griffin” began trending on Twitter Tuesday after TMZ obtained the photo of her posing with a mock Trump head.

“Tyler and I are not afraid to do images that make noise,” she said in a behind-the-scenes video of the photo shoot.

“We have to move to Mexico today because we’re going to go to prison,” Griffin quips to Shields in the clip.

Griffin is a vocal critic of Trump, calling him “an idiot” and “so embarrassing” during a March interview with MSNBC.

Olbermann, who has worked at ESPN and MSNBC, frequently attacks Trump on “The Resistance,” his online video series.

In January, he called for Trump’s resignation less than a week after the inauguration.

“It’s time for Donald Trump to resign as president,” said Olbermann, warning his administration could mean “the end of civilization.”

“This man is not of sound mind,” Olbermann said.
