What did Barron Trump see, and when did he see it? Those are among the fallout questions after Kathy Griffin was fired from her CNN New Year’s Eve gig for holding up a “beheaded” Donald Trump.
Her apologies notwithstanding, Kathy Griffin’s act incited a debate over what the president’s 11-year-old son saw and his reaction to it.
TMZ quotes a “family source” as saying Barron was watching TV at home Tuesday with mom Melania when the photo appeared on the screen, “and his initial reaction was that something terrible happened to his father.”
“We’re told he panicked and screamed, ‘Mommy, Mommy!’” TMZ said.
As it was put to us: “He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.”
Trump tweet-attacked Griffin, saying Barron was having a hard time dealing with it.
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!
