    This is disturbing…

    Mike Sington, a retired NBCUniversal senior executive who is now better known for his pro-liberal social media posts, commemorated Barron Trump’s 18th birthday on Wednesday with a sickening post on X. 

    “Barron Trump turns 18 today. He’s fair game now,” Sington wrote, sharing an image of him with his father. 

    Critics quickly attacked Sington for targeting Barron, who has largely stayed out of the public eye during and after the Trump presidency. 

    Sington deleted the post and walked back the comment but stopped short of offering an apology. 

    “I posted he was ‘fair game’ now, meaning, as an adult, he’s ‘fair game’ for criticism from the press,” Sington told Newsweek in a statement. “Someone pointed out to me ‘fair game’ could mean fair game to be harmed. I don’t wish physical harm on anyone, so I took it down. I listen to the comments and criticism I receive.”

    The former NBC executive has repeatedly commented on the former President’s family as Trump navigates multiple high profile lawsuits.
