President Donald Trump’s youngest son was reportedly troubled by an image of his father’s bloodied and disembodied head, but many aren’t feeling sorry for the child.

Barron Trump, 11, was watching television Wednesday, May 31, when he saw the video of comedian Kathy Griffin, who has since been let go by CNN, holding the faux head of the president. Trump family sources claimed Barron was “panicked” by it and screamed for his mother, first lady Melania Trump.

“He’s 11,” a source told TMZ. “He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.”

The first lady issued a statement saying the photo is “disturbing,” while President Trump slammed it on Twitter.

But the American public isn’t sympathetic toward Barron.

A few felt sorry for Barron.

Some made comparisons to what Black children have endured, including former President Barack Obama’s daughters.
