Chelsea Clinton knows a thing or two about having to spend some of your formative years in the spotlight. That's why the former presidential daughter came to Barron Trump's defense in the wake of cruel criticism on social media. On Inauguration Day, social media users ruthlessly teased the 10-year-old for appearing terribly bored on his dad's big day. One "Saturday Night Live" writer even predicted he'll be the first "homeschool shooter" (despite the fact he wasn't homeschooled).
That's about the time that Clinton said back off.
Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid. Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids.— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) January 22, 2017
Rosie O'Donnell has also targeted Barron on Twitter, suggesting he suffers from autism. At least she apologized.
I mean, do we really need to ask people not to pick on an adolescent?
