Barron Trump was casually going along with his day until he found out about Kathy Griffin’s disturbing joke on television. Baron actually thought that the photoshoot with the comedian was real as the picture itself was so realistic and given that decapitations are very common in today’s society, who could blame him? The eleven-year old’s mother Melania Trump was disgusted by the image as she had the following to say,” As a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing.” Melania thought the picture was so disturbing that she actually questioned the mental health of the comedian herself as she couldn’t believe Griffin could go through with something like this. Here is what she had to say about Griffin,” This is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.”
Sources who are actually quite close with the Trump family commented on how Barron was dealing with the whole situation. This is what these sources had to say,” He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.” This source and Melania aren’t the only people speaking against this photoshoot as the President of the United States had something to say about the ordeal as well. Trump tweeted that guilty Griffin,” Should be ashamed of herself,” Donald also made a comment about how his children were coping after this gory photoshoot. Donald tweeted the following about his kids,” ‘My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!’ “
Griffin realised that she made a gigantic mistake and she released a video on Twitter to say how sorry she truly was about the photos. Here is a quote from her apology in the video,” I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong.” I should note that some people think that this apology is not enough as Griffin has actually received hate from both ends of the political sphere. What I mean by this is that both Democrats and Trump supporters are attacking the comedian about her violent Trump photoshoot that she released on social media. I should also note that Griffin’s co-worker and friend Anderson Cooper said that he was, “Appalled,” in regards to the photo with Griffin holding Trump’s head. It is worth mentioning that Griffin has now actually been fired from hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve special as the broadcasting company don’t want anything to do with this whole controversy.
To conclude, Griffin created herself a media nightmare when she decided to post those disturbing pictures on the internet as it has already cost her jobs and now maybe a friendship with her longtime friend Anderson Cooper. I believe it is safe to say that the Secret Service will be keeping an eye on Griffin for a while. This is because they take things like this very seriously, after all, she is holding the decapitated head of the President.
