Keith Olbermann, sports and political commentator, is receiving backlash after using Barron in attack on President Trump. Olbermann has been very outspoken about his disapproval of our president since Trump started in office.
He hosts a political web show for GQ Magazine called, “The Resistance”, which relates to a common slogan for the left: “Resist”. His show did begin airing during the 2016 presidential election (September of 2016) and consistently targets the Trump administration.
On Tuesday July 25th, Trump tweeted in regards to his son-in-law Jared Kushner making a statement on not colluding with the Russians. He called this ongoing situation a “witch hunt” and appeared to imply that next, people will begin using his 11-year-old son, Barron, in attacks against him, his family, and the Trump administration.
He was right. Olbermann posted a screenshot of Trump’s tweet and said, “Have you actually ever MET Barron?”
He wasn’t the only one to use Barron in attacking Trump. Jules Suzdaltsev, video journalist and producer, also verbally attacked Trump by using his son.
In the past, many celebrities and well-known names have taken shots at Trump’s youngest son Barron, including comedian Kathy Griffin. Griffin was under fire after posting a controversial photo of her holding President Trump’s decapitated head. Following the outrage from the incident, Kathy isn't doing too well.

What do you think about this? When people don’t agree with his politics, they attack his parenting...does this seem right? Share your thoughts in our Facebook comments. Thank you!
