i wonder if the head looked more fake than it already did would the fake outrage be the same?
You're pretty good about putting words in people's mouths. I didn't say that. I noted the obvious difference in imagery, and I subtly referred to the fact that the Obamas wisely sheltered their kids from that sort of stuff. I'm not so sure they saw that because I don't think their parents afforded them the opportunity to. I'm not arguing some of your points other than the lack of relevance.

This is different. Stuff is getting out of hand.
No, it's not different. To say that Barron's trauma is more important, relevant or serious than the trauma that Malia and Sasha went through, with all the violent and disgusting things that were done their parents image is blatant hypocrisy.
Did Barron really see it? I don't know, he seems pretty sheltered. Anyway, by the way his father brags about how "cyber" savvy Barron is, you'd think, especially with his fancy private education, that he'd know the difference between political satire and reality......you know, being the president's kid and all! You'd think his parents would have prepped him for this kind of stuff.
And remember, the only reason we're talking about Barron Trump, and not Kathy Griffin, is because his parents trotted him out in the spotlight so that they could use him to push their very well known agenda to silence free speech.
The anti-Trump sentiment is different.

Come on. There is no comparison of the images of the Obamas to that GoT/ISIS # Griffin was peddling.
how many members of the fake outrage here in this 34 page thread love game of thrones?
just take a stab

Something stinks here, and it's not just Kathy (she's an established pile of s# already)
His reaction just doesn't add up too good unless he's got something cognitive going on we don't know about (autistic or whatever the going theory is lately) And to beat the what-iffers to the point, no, if someone pulled that with a mock-up of one of my parents' heads at 11, I wouldn't have fallen for it being anything other than weird, because I wasn't that oblivious at 11. (I also wasn't calling my mom "mommy" at 11, either, stopped doing that in kindergarten)
How the hell would he think it's his dad's actual head if they're supposedly in touch with ol' Don anyway, doesn't he bother to make the time to regularly call home or Skype or something? It kind of makes you wonder.
I was doing Halloween costumes gorier than that prop head at his age, WTF kind of bubble are they keeping him in if he's average in the membrane to flip his ish? Has he never seen a horror flick? Never sneak-played a friend's gory video game? Never dressed up for Halloween? Never ventured out for it? God forbid he see's that gross pig-Don picture over in the jokes thread, he'd be liable to assume someone spliced his head on there.
And no, it's not Baron's fault in any way. It's the fault of helicopter parenting keeping him bubble-wrapped in some delusion that he'll never encounter the mean, the weird, and the vile. This is what happens to the overly-sheltered kids, they end up not being able to handle one iota of anything.
Something just doesn't smell right about this. Either he's got issues they haven't disclosed (in which case, being unable to tell the difference between prop & dad's head is more explainable) or Mel's blowing it very out of proportion.
