President Donald Trump opened up on Monday about how his 14 year-old son Barron is doing amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has the 14 year-old self-isolating in the White House.
“Well, Barron’s not so unhappy, OK? He’s not so unhappy. They said you can’t go to school and – I wouldn’t say he’s the – I wouldn’t say he sat up and complained about it,” Trump said during an interview with “Fox & Friends,” according to Daily Mail.
Trump went on to praise Barron’s school, St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, for implementing distance learning so effectively.
“But you know we’re working with the school, and the school gives lessons through the computers and through every other means they have,” Trump explained. “They have a lot of different means and all of those kids, where Barron goes, they’re learning.”
While Trump questioned “what can be better than being in school?” he also talked about how amazing it is that teleconferencing has allowed meetings to continue throughout this pandemic.
“I’ve done a lot of – I did a G20 and G7 by teleconference. Meetings that we would have met the leaders of countries and I did it by teleconference,” Trump said. “So it’s been – it’s been a great experience. And the thing that we just have to cherish is life.”
Barron celebrated his 14th birthday in quarantine on March 20, and his mother Melania Trump took to Twitter to honor him on that day, writing simply, “Happy Birthday BWT.”

This comes after actor Michael Rapaport launched a truly vile attack on Barron, calling for him to be exposed to coronavirus. In a disturbing video rant, Rapaport called on President Trump to throw his children out of quarantine, therefore exposing them to coronavirus.
“Why don’t you send your f***ing son, d**k stain Donald Trump Jr., big-toothed Eric Trump, little f***ing Barron, f***ing Ivanka, junkyard Jared… let them go out there and test the f***ing waters,” he said. “Let them see if sh*t is sweet. Let them take the cars, the trains, the buses, the Amtrak, let them play in the park. And if everything’s good after five days of them playing in the streets, we’ll all go back to [work].”

Because of the intolerance of the radical left, Barron has gone through more in the past four years than any child should go through. He deserves to be able to grow up in peace just like any other child does, so we hope that he is ignoring the noise from crazies like Rapaport and keeping his head up in quarantine.
If he is anything like his father, this shouldn’t be a problem for Barron.
