Well that crossed a couple of lines

Post by nafod » Wed May 31, 2017 4:42 pm

Trump family sources tell us Barron was in front of the TV watching a show when the news came on and he saw the bloody, beheaded image. We're told he panicked and screamed, "Mommy, Mommy!"

As it was put to us, "He's 11. He doesn't know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad."

Melania called out Kathy, saying what she did was disturbing, wrong and "makes you wonder about [her] mental health."
I didn't even feel like posting the picture here.

A picture of a headless Kathy Griffin holding her own bloody head, career bleeding out of the neck, would be ironic right about now.

Completely despicable.

And yet...

Why lie? The odds of Barron seeing it on TV are ~0%. Even if he did, kids his age don't get panicked and call for mommy. They go from a 100% win position to people rolling their eyes at the obvious lies.

I agree with your skepticism, Troy. The story sounds convenient.

Barron Trump might be spoiled enough to find a way to watch that kind of shit. How much spending money do you think he gets and how much supervision do you think he receives?

Maybe he was on the web at the same time as he was watching TV much like I'm doing right now. Or, perhaps surfing the web on a monitor. Would a parent of Melania's age immediately know the difference? Many kids watch almost everything on the web now. The only story that matters is that we saw a new level of hatred and a young boy saw something done by lefty Hollywood people disturbing enough to cause emotional damage in a child.

The good news is that many libs condemned such deranged vileness.

Not a new level, if you consider the knife attack in Portland or Dylan Roof or etc

And how about Ted Nugent saying Obama admin heads should be cut off. He got to be an honored guess at the White House. What, words don't count?

I am sure Hannity had a special episode condemning Nugent.

To be clear, if Barron saw that, I'd think exactly "poor Barron Trump." But he didn't. If he did, he wouldn't have panicked and yelled "Mommy Mommy!" And if he had, it wouldn't be told anonymously.

Griffin still fucked up huge and deserves worse than the right's treatment of Ted Nugent.

and nooses?

which, as you know, were widely used and are still used as a threaten. ask rep clyburn of s.c.

we can't have a rational conversation about griffin without context. we could go back to a presidential candidate calling mexicans rapists, if we want to understand the tone of the current verbal warfare.

as for barron: if the president has a jot of concern about what his impressionable son hears and learns, he (the pres) would modify his behavior. that's not gonna happen. he'd rather whine.

that's my point.

i get there by a different route from yours, because i see so much selective condemnation.

and because i don't see it from our elected leaders, alas.

To be fair, Barron seems to be a little introverted and may have been overwhelmed by the imagery if he saw the pictures, which makes the claimed reaction more plausible. Couple that with the fact that I was caught packing a knife in my schoolbag to "show" some older skank who just talked some teenage shit to my father when I was at Barron's age.. all I can say is that I feel for the lil' guy.

You and Timmy are right, of coarse, but it's all politics all the time in a massive battle for POWER. It's essentially 1850 redux and both sides are convinced they're the party of righteousness while being egged on by a media & lobbying complex whose existence depends on outrage. As good warrior sheep we respond as programmed.

She's past the point of even being worth facefucking to drown her in cum, and it was dumb, but she also has the right.

It would have been funny if she just held up a toupe and gave a guilty but happy look but she's sucked for more than 2 decades and I don;t mean sucked clit.

Gwar beheaded George Bush and buttfucked Bill Clinton on stage, it was awesome! Bill can take a rough fucking!

Baron Trump is old the fuck enough to know that he will see and hear a lot of shit about his dad for the rest of his life. He can fucking deal and I am sure he can.

Third rate talent seeking attention. No one could seriously take Griffin as a threat to Trump, any more than Madonna's comment about blowing up the White House.

Have to disagree there. Schumer is very uneven, but she's funnier than Kathy Griffin.

I mean, at her peak she's funnier than Griffin. Schumer is uneven and she tries a lot of different shit: when she bombs, she's really terrible.
