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, TMZ reports.
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.”
Melania called out Kathy, saying what she did was disturbing, wrong and “makes you wonder about [her] mental health.”
President Trump also blasted Griffin for posing with the head, 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!

Griffin has apologized but it is clear she is NOT apologizing to President Trump and his family or she would have done so.
I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong. pic.twitter.com/LBKvqf9xFB

CNN has since fired Griffin but not because they feel sympathy for the Trump family, no doubt it is because they have been overwhelmed with phone calls, Tweets and Facebook posts calling for her to be boycotted.
