A panicked Barron Trump thought it was his dad in Griffin’s hideously barbaric photo.
The cruel effect on the president’s 11-year-old son of the fake picture of psycho Kathy Griffin holding Trump’s severed head is almost beyond belief.
The image showed Griffin raising Trump’s head covered with fake blood during a photo shoot with infamous photographer Tyler Shields.
The never-funny “comedian” is paying for it now — big time. The burgeoning backlash has ruined her so-called career, made her the target of hate by even Democrats and Trump-haters and placed her very life in jeopardy.
In the still unfolding story the U.S. Secret Service is investigating her action as a possible “threat” to the President of the United States, a crime that could send her to jail for years.
The Clinton-loving CNN network has fired her as the crude, embarrassing co-host of its New Year’s Eve celebration from Times Square.
And CNN, which was already having revenue problems, is also paying for what she did, as advertisers quit the network in increasing numbers.
But the most damaging effect was on young Barron Trump. When he saw the image on TV, he panicked and screamed, “Mommy, mommy!” A person close to the Trump family said: “He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.”
Barron’s mother, First lady Melania, posted on line:
When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.
The president lashed out at Griffin on Wednesday morning in an email:
Griffin later tweeted and apology, but it rang hollow, since during the photo shoot, which was posted on her official website, she said: ‘Tyler and I are not afraid to make images that make noise.”
Noise doesn’t begin to cover the trouble she’s in.
