The left is so filled with hate that even children are not off limits for their attacks on Trump and now a liberal writer has been caught happily tweeting that 11-year-old Barron Trump is a now an open target for his attacks to take down the president.
As the imbroglio continues over purported “comic” Kathy Griffin’s much derided photo of herself holding the severed head of the president, liberal writer Gregg Easterbrook jumped to his Twitter today excited that he can now attack a child in his effort to destroy Trump.
The story starts with so-called “comedian” Griffin who sparked outrage across the country Tuesday afternoon when she posted a photo showing herself holding the bloody, severed head of President Trump making herself look just like an ISIS terrorist.
Griffin’s photo sparked a backlash that continues to affect her livelihood. She lost at least one sponsor and just today CNN fired her from its annual New Year’s Eve show she had co-hosted for several years with CNN host Anderson Cooper.
But there have been other effects from the story. As the media picked up the tale, Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron, 11, became terrified when the photo of Griffin holding the bloody, severed head of his father appeared on TV.
As any father would, Trump slammed Griffin for her “funny” photo because it scared his son.
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

But Easterbrook, a writer for such leftist rags as The New Republic and The Atlantic Monthly, reacted with glee to the president’s attempt to protect his son.
The leftist writer took to Twitter to announce his happiness that since Trump mentioned his son we can now attack the boy. (H/T WeaselZippers.us)
it was offensive & tasteless. But now that Trump has put his own boy into play let's not hear "my child should be an off limits subject" https://t.co/XDU2rDopz3

That’s right, because Trump is a good father who was upset that his little boy was scared by a photo that seemed to depict his father’s murder, libs like Easterbrook are now wringing their hands in anticipation of using the child as just another tool to attack our president.
I thought liberals were always interested in “helping the children”?
And over the last eight years didn’t we endlessly hear the left warning us not to attack President Obama’s daughters?
Now we have leftists like Easterbrook gleefully advocating for people to attack a president’s 11-year-old son.
