Initially, it seemed a little weird to me that a kid in middle school would react like this. However, seeing what appears to be a crazy lady holding his dad’s severed head is probably not the most surreal thing to happen to the kid in the last year. His dad decided to run for President a little under two years ago, spoke to crowds of thousands, won the party’s nomination, and then got elected President. When he watches TV, there’s a non-trivial chance it’s about his dad and sometimes the people he may have briefly met because of his dad. He may have a different fantasy life than most because his reality is so strange, and often reflected on television.
