It has long been an unspoken agreement among politicians not to slander each other’s children during political campaigns. Of course some have not followed those rules and left themselves open for attacks from other politicians and media. The public doesn’t seem to favorably view anyone willing to attack an innocent child.
Besides just campaigns, the children of politicians’ in office are considered to be off limits as well. From the President to local government officials, children are kept out of the political scene. Until recently that has been the general rule. The liberals have pulled off the gloves and the thrown whatever morals they had out the window. Apparentlyhysteria has made the left go crazier than usual and they have begun attacking the 10-year-old son of President Trump, Barron.
The public does not have much information about Barron; he is kept understandably sheltered by his parents. Even before politics, Donald and Melania were high profile enough to protect their children from constant exposure until the kids reached adulthood.
Since little is known factually about the boy, the media, celebrities, and the public have gone wild speculating about “what is wrong with Barron Trump.” It is unclear where it all started but leading up to, during, and after the inauguration, people had a field day making up stories about Trump’s son and most of them were completely inappropriate.
An incident took place in November when long-time rival of Donald Trump, Rosie O’Donnell decided to attack the child on social media. She was certainly not the only one.
Barron was suddenly in the spotlight more than he had ever been. He was suddenly on stage, late at night, in front of millions. He acted as most 10-year-olds would. He was often seen yawning, or looking bored. He moved around a lot. People began accusing him of being ungrateful and rude. O’Donnell decided to “defend” Barron by reposting a YouTube video claiming that is obvious that the child was autistic.
It is incredible that anyone but a doctor would try to claim they could know that but O’Donnell and the maker of the video did. Neither has ever met the boy, just examined his behavior under extraordinary circumstances and came to her own conclusions.
Understandably, Melania and Donald were not happy. James Hunter is the one who made the video. He has since taken the video down and issued this statement:
“It was incredibly irresponsible of me to diagnose Barron Trump using a selection of misleading videos. I can understand if you might not want to accept my apology, but please know I didn’t mean to hurt anyone with my video. As someone who was diagnosed at age 5 and has gone through bullying myself, I would NEVER do something like that. I made this because I truly believed Barron was on the spectrum, and I wanted people to stop bullying him over his ‘weird’ behavior and explain to them that it might actually be due to a condition.”
Whether this apology and explanation to true, it doesn’t erase the damage done. Before the video was taken down it had over 3.2 million views. Copies of the video are still available on YouTube. Watching it shows a normal looking boy in very abnormal situations. Let the kid be a kid.
Melania Trump has threatened to sue O’Donnell and Hunter. Whether she will or not remains to be seen. Unfortunately, that was just the beginning for Barron.
After the inauguration, the liberals went crazy on social media. Some of their comments were disgusting and their names are posted here so they get the credit they deserve.
“Barron is going to pump off in every White House bathroom.”- Dean Gulberry
“Barron Trump counting the minutes until he climbs a clock tower with an assault rifle.” – John Niven
“Are the #bookies taking #bets on Barron Trump to get a serious drug addiction and to die (including assassination) in office.” – Asher James
“Barron Trump will be mutilating cats on the white house lawn in like two weeks.” – Joe Mande
In one of the most disturbing of all tweets, Katie Rich wrote, “Barron will be this country’s first home-school shooter.” Rich is a writer for Saturday Night Live and apparently thinks calling an innocent 10-year-old a mass murderer passes for humor.
She deleted the tweet after about 3 hours. It was a tweet she never would have dared to make about Obama or Clinton’s children. Happily, Rich has since been suspended from her job on SNL. Apparently even NBC knows when someone has gone too far.
A petition on Change.org calling for NBC to fire the writer probably didn’t hurt either. It had garnered more than 500 signatures by Saturday morning. Rich’s Wikipedia page was briefly vandalized as well to describe her as a “talentless hack that bullies 10 year olds.”
The liberals have shown that they will go as low as it takes to find somewhere to strike at President Trump. He has proven he can rise above so they went after his son.
One journalist from Toronto, Lorrie Goldstein, tweeted her own comment about Rich’s behavior but it is appropriate for the liberals in general, “If you look way, way, up, you can almost see the low road.”
