11-year-old Barron Trump reportedly thought his father's head was really severed by comedienne Kathy Griffin.
Barron was allegedly so traumatized by what he saw that he called for his mother. "He's 11. He doesn't know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad," the source said.
President Trump lashed out at the 56-year-old comedienne on Twitter.com.
"My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!" Trump tweeted.
Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!

Griffin has since apologized in a press release and on Twitter.com. But it was too little, too late.
CNN sacked her as co-host of the network's New Year's Eve coverage. And Anderson Cooper called her "disgusting" and appalling.
Las Vegas hotels and venues canceled Griffin's shows, and a manager for the Mirage Hotel said she is not welcome back even as a guest.
