Since Donald Trump won the election in November, liberals have made crystal clear just how much they hate him. While most of the hysteria surrounding Trump has been delusional, everyone has a right to their opinion. When you are about to become president of the United States, criticism comes with the territory.
Freedom of speech is important, and being able to publicly criticize our leaders is a feature of American democracy. However, most would agree that leaving a politician’s children out of it should go without saying. Liberals learned that lesson the hard way, having made themselves look petty after publicly shaming then 10-year-old Barron Trump on election night.
Thankfully, people seemed to back off the child after that pathetic November episode. But sadly, it appears not all liberals took that lesson to heart. After comedian Kathy Griffin posted a picture of herself holding a fake decapitated Trump head, Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings took to Twitter to mock Barron Trump for being traumatized by the image.
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

From the Washington Times:
Ken Jennings, the ‘Jeopardy!” champ who holds the longest winning streak for the game show, took to Twitter Wednesday to mock President Donald Trump’s 11-year-old son.“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,” wrote Mr. Jennings shortly before 2:30 p.m. Eastern time.
The tweet appears to be a reference to a report by TMZ.com that young Barron cried when he saw a photo of comedian Kathy Griffin holding what looked like the bloody, severed head of the nation’s 45th president.
Dislike the president all you want, but his 11-year-old son does not deserve this kind of treatment. Young children shouldn’t have to see images of their parent’s decapitated head, even if that parent is president.
While liberals claim Trump is to blame for the violence and hatred of our politics, they continue to prove it is they who advocate for violence in place of rational debate. Their hatred of this president runs so deep, they have lost the ability to empathize with an 11-year-old child. It appears that if the last name is Trump, liberals think it’s fair game.
There is no doubt that Griffin’s image crossed the line, even resulting in her being fired by CNN. Mocking an 11-year-old child crosses an even bigger line. We should all be better than that.
