In a surprise to absolutely nobody, liberal elites have taken their disdain for President-elect Donald Trump and used it to start attacking his 10-year-old son, Barron.

When Barack Obama was running for president in 2008, he stated emphatically that politicians’ families should be “off limits.”

That advice is no longer being heeded it seems, beginning with liberal Hollywood loon, Rosie O’Donnell, who is pushing stories that young Barron Trump is autistic.


Critics were quick to respond …


Via RedState:

There are so many things wrong with this entire subject that it’s difficult to even know where to begin.

The most important thing to remember here is that Barron Trump is a 10-year-old boy who did not ask to be in the spotlight, and that any medical or psychological diagnoses he has or doesn’t have are solely his family’s business. No one else’s.

Beyond that, how can one possibly diagnose autism from the examples in the video? They are all from public appearances in situations that would be stressful for any child. He’s a boy having to wear a suit for hours (any male RedState writer will tell you how tortuous that is) and he’s not gladhanding and smiling for the cameras like a politician would. Ooh, and on election night he was standing on stage falling asleep at 3 a.m. And your point is?

Further, what gives any of these people the right to speculate about someone else’s child? There has always been a tendency in society to virtually parent other people’s kids, but social media has taken it to a whole new disturbing level.

Can you imagine for just one second if anyone – ANYONE – had suggested that one of the Obama children were autistic? Would that person be employed anywhere in the United States right now?

Maybe ask former GOP staffer, Elizabeth Lauten, who was forced to resign amidst remarks that Malia and Sasha Obama had not dressed appropriately for an official Thanksgiving ceremony.

It’s only Democrats’ kids who are off limits it appears.

Barron Trump is fair game.

Just like Ted Cruz’ daughters. Mitt Romney’s grandson. Sarah Palin’s son. Palin’s daughter. George Bush’s daughters.

Well, you get the point.

It’s only funny and acceptable when liberals attack the children of those they disagree with ideologically.
