In Defense of Trump’s Son’s Freakout


There’s a story that Barron Trump saw an image of the Kathy Griffith severed head photo shoot, and ran to his mother believing that his father had just been assassinated.

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.
