Barron Trump reportedly thought the photo of Kathy Griffin holding up a mock severed head of his father Donald Trump was real.
According to TMZ Trump family sources told them: “Barron Trump was watching television Tuesday at home with his mother Melania Trump when Kathy Griffin’s photo appeared on the screen, and his initial reaction was that something terrible happened to his father.”
TMZ sources claim Barron panicked at the sight of the images and screamed “Mommy, Mommy!”
President Trump trashed Kathy Griffin’s tasteless publicity stunt early this morning in a Tweet:
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!
