Just when you think that liberal Democrats can’t go any lower than the level of pond scum, they find a way to sink into the abyss. It wasn’t disgusting enough for one of their heroes to take photographs with a realistic severed “head” of President Trump, they were so outraged by the backlash that they felt the need to attack the president’s 11-year-old son just to “get back at” conservatives.
You’ve undoubtedly seen the Kathy Griffin photos already. Not to give her any credit, but at least she had the sense to quickly apologize for her tasteless actions. We imagine she did so to save her borderline career and not out of any genuine remorse, but at least she didn’t make the tragic mistake of digging her heels in and defending those wretched pictures.
Well, she hadn’t as of midday Thursday, in any case. Knowing Griffin, we’re sure her show of contrition won’t last forever. After all, she was “just mocking” the president. And we’re all familiar with the time-honored satire of holding up a political enemy’s severed, bloody head. When HASN’T that gotten a gut-busting reaction??
Trump, who has managed to avoid getting into it with any of his Hollywood detractors for quite a while, couldn’t stand by in silence when he saw how the photos had affected his son. “Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself,” he tweeted. “My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!”
On Thursday, a source close to the Trump family confirmed what the president said. From TMZ:
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.”
If you’ve seen the pictures, the head more than just resembles his dad. It was deliberately made to be as realistic as possible, and there is certainly nothing in Griffin’s expression or the overall tone of the pictures to suggest that any of this was meant as a joke. And with the kind of chaotic atmosphere that Trump hatred has engendered on the left, we’re not surprised that Barron was shocked by the images. Don’t think for a moment that he’s not aware that there are plenty of psychotic liberals who would LOVE to see Griffin’s photographs made into reality.
And so here are a few of Griffin’s pathetic defenders who just CAN’T STAND that feeling of “Hmm, maybe I’m on the wrong side this time…” And so they had to go out on social media and make sure of it.
People like Sports Illustrated’s Jon Tayler, who said, “If this is true (and it almost certainly isn’t), then Barron Trump is stupider than his idiot dad.”
People like comedian Kristina Wong, who said, “If Barron Trump was traumatized so badly by the Kathy Griffin photo, wait until he finds out who his father is.”
People like Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings, who said, “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.”
These people are soulless, and we can only temper our disgust with the knowledge that – if this is what they consider “funny” – their lives are already miserable enough to constitute all the punishment they could ever deserve.
