TMZ is reporting that Barron Trump was traumatized by seeing Kathy Griffin holding what appeared to be his father’s bloody head. He is said to have started screaming for his mother, who had to assure him that his father was okay. Barron is only eleven and it must have been real bad for him.
Donald Trump said Kathy Griffin “should be ashamed of herself” after she posted a graphic image joking that she had beheaded him.
The comedian sparked outrage Tuesday after photos surfaced of her holding what appeared to be a bloody, decapitated version of the president’s head during a photo shoot. Though Griffin initially defended the photos, she later deleted her tweets and apologized for going “too far.”
On Twitter Wednesday, Trump said the gory image had affected his children.
“Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”
Barron Trump was watching television Tuesday at home with Melania when Kathy Griffin’s photo appeared on the screen, and his initial reaction was that something terrible happened to his father.
Trump family sources tell us Barron was in front of the TV watching a show when the news came on and he saw the bloody, beheaded image. We’re told he panicked and screamed, “Mommy, Mommy!”
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.”
President Trump blasted Griffin for posing with the head, saying, Barron was having a hard time dealing with it.
Griffin has apologized.
