I'm disgusted, and not because of something newly minted President Trump has done - though I've already got a nice long list of complaints against him - but because of what some creeps have said about someone who has nothing to do with what The Donald has, is and will do. I'm talking about Barron Trump.
Ugh. Y'know, I really don't like having to defend anything or anyone Trump, especially so soon after the inauguration but some people don't know how to 'people' properly. Ever since Election Day, unqualified fools have made idiotic, and flat out cruel, remarks about a ten year old boy simply because his father shares a few too many traits with a certain historical mustachioed maniac.
Barron Trump is NOT his father. He is NOT the barer of his father's (many) sins. He is a child who has ZERO say in what the evil-sprouting Orange One says and does. To go after a ten year old boy is to bully a child and when you do that you lose all credibility and respect. Did you like it when Donald mocked a disabled reporter? No? Well guess what? If you attack a ten year old boy you are not better.
There are people, right now, online claiming a ten year old boy is a future mass murderer. Why? They think it's funny? It's not. School shootings are a serious matter that brings this country to a screeching halt every time they happen. And to announce that you've spotted a future shooter is beyond distasteful. He a ten year old freaking boy who has done nothing to earn such heartlessness.
Hey, remember that rumor flying around that the youngest Trump is autistic? Yeah, I've got a few issues with that one. First, it's a stupid opinion from unqualified baboons based on how he looks. Basically, it came down to he looks wierd... he must be autistic! Okay. So the implication is autistic kids all look weird. That's cool; let's lump a whole group and get all negative about their appearances. Great for the ego, really. I'm Barron loved hearing how he looked like there was something wrong with his brain. Nice way to welcome a ten year old boy to the White House. Second, the ridiculous claim makes it sound like autistic people are somehow less than the rest of us. Again, bet they just adored hearing that. Way to go. Great way to show you care. And let's not forget that if he is autistic, it doesn't freaking matter even though it became such a huge buzz phrase.
Stop talking about him like he's a grown folk politician out for your Medicare; he's not. He has nothing to do with what happens in the Oval Office, He is a ten year old boy who has been dragged into a life and light he might not even want. Attack his father's attitude and policies and tantrums all you want; as the leader of the free world, he should be held accountable. But Barron Trump - a ten year old boy - should be left alone because as we all know, children of politicians are off limits. Y'all do well to remember that. I don't want to have to defend another Trump but if the bullying continues, I'll be back and yellin' at y'all again. And if you have trouble being a not-jerk when is comes to the First Kid, keep Hillary Clinton's words in mind: There's no such thing as other people's children.
