Trump Jr. Invokes Brother Barron While Taking Shot at Biden
Children of United States Presidents often have a difficult time while their parent is in office. Donald Trump has a pretty wide range of children. His oldest son, Donald Jr. is 42, while his youngest child, Barron is only 14.
The media goes out of its way to protect teenagers like Barron Trump. Any attempt to use the youngster as a political foil is quickly condemned. That did not stop his older brother, Donald Jr., from using Barron to make a job about Joe Biden.
Trump Jr. first shared a post from the Conservative news site, The Daily Caller. The site had published a poll where only 54% of respondents felt Joe Biden was capable of debating Donald Trump. The poll was conducted by Republican favorite Rasmussen.
The President’s son joked, “In all fairness, Joe Biden is not capable of debating Barron Trump, let alone Donald Trump.”
I thought Barron was off limits, brah. https://t.co/VmSUiUmY0N

Writer Amee Vanderpool quickly responded to the hypocrisy. “I thought Barron was off-limits, brah,” she replied.
Barron’s mother, Melania, has made it quite clear that she does not want him to be used politically. After a judge named Pamela Karlan mentioned Barron in a decision, the First Lady tweeted, “A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”
Strategist Jon Cooper replied, “You never gave a damn about any children except your own, and now it’s clear you’re willing to let the White House use Barron to try to score political points.”
Two points, Melania:
1) You obviously didn’t write a single word of this tweet.
2) You never gave a damn about any children except your own, and now it’s clear you’re willing to let the White House use Barron to try to score political points.
You’re as self-serving as Donald.
