Leftists seem to think that they can regain the moral high ground after the Kathy Griffin debacle by attacking 11-year-old Barron Trump.
After Griffin was forced to apologize for her photo shoot in which she held up a mock decapitated head of Donald Trump, news emerged that Barron Trump thought the grisly scene may have been real.
“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!,” reports TMZ.
“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.”
As if this whole farce wasn’t a big enough own goal for the left, many of them responded to the story by attacking the 11-year-old son of the president.
Children’s author and Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings joked, “Barron Trump saw a very long necktie on a heap of expired deli meat in a dumpster. He thought it was his dad & his little heart is breaking.”

Presumably his publisher Simon & Schuster might be interested to learn that a creator of illustrated books for kids is making jokes about children seeing their Dad’s dead.
“I guess Barron Trump won’t be shown the Black Knight scene in The Search for the Holy Grail anytime soon,” joked the LA Times’ Steve Zeitchik. Within minutes, he deleted the tweet.
Despite being previously forced to apologize for bullying Barron over suggestions he was autistic, Rosie O’Donnell used the 11-year-old to go after his father’s “hatred”.
“If this is true (and it almost certainly isn’t), then Barron Trump is stupider than his idiot dad,” tweeted Sports Illustrated’s MLB editor Jon Tayler.

Feminist editor Danielle Campoamor used Barron to bash Trump over her claim he “bragged about sexually assaulting multiple women.”
If you think this is bad, wait until Barron Trump finds out his father bragged about sexually assaulting multiple women.

Her colleague Ej Dickson tweeted how she was, “Shocked that Barron Trump has spent enough time with his father to recognize his face in the first place.”

“If Barron Trump was traumatized so badly by the Kathy Griffin photo, wait until he finds out who his father is,” tweeted comedian Kristina Wong.

Others exploited the opportunity to engage in lame virtue-signalling.
Black kids worry about losing a parent to police brutality or getting shot in the st. themselves, so I'm not worried about Barron Trump rn.

His generation has to deal with the aftermath of climate change deniers like his father.#ParisAgreement

I wonder how upset Barron Trump will be when he realizes he'll have no breathable air or drinkable water in the future. #ParisAgreement

Both the Kathy Griffin photo-shoot and its aftermath prove once again that while the left complains all day about conservatives “lowering the tone,” they lower the tone to depths previously thought unimaginable at every available opportunity.
