CNN Fires Controversial Comic Over Trump 'Severed Head' Photo Shoot That 11-Year-Old Barron Thought It Was Real - As Melania Questions Her Mental Health

CNN fires Kathy Griffin from New Year's Eve lineup
'CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year's Eve program,' the network's PR department tweeted. Trump's 11-year-old son Barron reportedly saw his father's decapitated head on television after news of the D-list celebrity's publicity stunt became news - and thought it was real. First lady Melania Trump said that '[a]s a mother, a wife, and a human being, that photo is very disturbing. When you consider some of the atrocities happening in the world today, a photo opportunity like this is simply wrong and makes you wonder about the mental health of the person who did it.'

CNN has fired Kathy Griffin from bo-hosting its New Year's Eve program with Anderson Cooper
The president lashed out at Kathy Griffin on Wednesday morning, saying she 'should be ashamed of herself' for posting video of the photo shoot on social media.
'My children, especially my 11 year old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!' Trump tweeted.
The Trumps' anger, and public pressure, became too much for CNN to withstand.
But one liberal politician has decided to stay with Griffin, refusing to cancel a joint appearance in July.
Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken told CNN 'Yes,' when asked if he plans on appearing with Griffin in his home state.
'I think she did the right thing,” Franken said of Griffin's eventual apology. 'I think asking for forgiveness and acknowledging that this, this was a horrible mistake.'
The Route 66 Casino near Albuquerque, New Mexico was less forgiving. 
'The performance by Kathy Griffin on July 22nd has been cancelled,' the company wrote on its Facebook page. 'Any guests that did purchase tickets will receive a full refund.'
President Trump weighed in Wednesday morning on Kathy Griffin's tasteless video – and he pronounced it 'sick'
