Hey Grown Ups, Quit Bullying Barron Trump: Chelsea Clinton Takes a Stand

No matter where you stand politically, I would PRAY that we could agree on one thing: bullying is not cool. And let’s take that a step further: ADULTS bullying and insulting CHILDREN is reprehensible, no matter who their parents are.

During and at the events surrounding Donald Trump’s inauguration as 45th President of the United States on Friday, adults on social media began saying some pretty mean things (and made some unkind memes and GIFs) about Trump’s 10-year-old son, Barron. He was mocked for his facial expressions, for appearing “bored,” for giving his mom a hard time about a “high five” she tried to get from him (umm, my kids do this frequently when they think their mom is uncool.) And, finally, he was simply derided for being Donald Trump’s son, a fact he certainly cannot help.

The straw that broke the camel’s (and nearly the Internet’s) back when it came to Barron-bullying was this tweet from Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich (it has since been deleted):



Rich’s tweet caused such a furor, that former first kid Chelsea Clinton eventually spoke out in Barron’s defense, saying on Facebook (and adding in a political opinion as well):

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.
