‘Jeopardy’ Champion Ken Jennings Joins in on the Barron Trump Bullying

What Kathy Griffin spawned — so sad, so desperate

One “Jeopardy!” champion and best-selling children’s book author is facing heat after mocking President Trump’s 11-year-old son Barron over the controversial photo of Kathy Griffin holding a bloodied mask of the 70-year-old.

Ken Jennings posted a tweet Wednesday that appeared to reference a report by TMZ that alleged Barron was watching television at home when he saw the graphic image on the screen, prompting him to believe the beheading was real:

Barron’s older half-brother, Donald Trump Jr., spotted the tweet and immediately retaliated:

Jennings quickly responded:

Do you respect the office of the president?

Trump Jr. then called out book publisher Simon & Schuster over the shocking comments:

Griffin’s photo shoot with photographer Tyler Shields immediately sparked outrage, resulting in CNN dropping the 56-old-comedian from hosting its annual New Year’s Eve show.

Squatty Potty also eliminated its contract with the spokeswoman, and the USO announced it was no longer involved with Griffin.
