Melania Trump Threatens to Sue Over Barron Autism Video Accusations

Melania Trump is threatening a lawsuit over the YouTube video that questions if Barron Trump, her 10-year-old son with Donald Trump, is autistic.

In a letter obtained by TMZ, her lawyer Charles J. Harder wrote, “The video allegedly seeks to ‘stop the bullying’ of Barron Trump. Not true … The video did instigate further bullying by Rosie O’Donnell and others.”

Rosie perpetuated the autism rumor by tweeting and weighing in on if Barron could be autistic. Rosie later wrote a poem to explain why she shared the video.

The footage in the video shows Barron at events very late on the campaign trail, and Melania and her lawyer insist this is all normal behavior for a 10-year-old to exhibit. There is also footage of Barron clapping without putting his hands together.

Melania and her lawyer are insisting the person who posted the YouTube video take it down and apologize.

    Her son looks retarded and he is Donald Trump’s son so that would make perfect sense. Like every other lawsuit I am sure she will lose this one.

    What it a crass comment by Rosie, yes. As someone with Aspergers, I call bullshit on her good intentions, but suing over this. What in the actual fuck?

    I guess there are absolutely no limits to how low some leftists can go…..

    Rosie is the biggest loser on the planet.

    I agree Rosie should have kept her mouth shut. Just like she requested when she and her daughter were having problems.

    But what the hell is up with Pres elect and first lady elect need to sue. Exactly how can she sue? Seems to me the billionaire and his wife just what to scare people (by having to spent lots of money to fight the suit) into backing off them and their family.

    While we shouldn’t talk about other people’s children, since when was having Autism bad? It’s not like he was called a terrorist or rapist. Having autism is out of one’s control and cannot be helped. There is no shame in having autism, just as there’s no shame in having brown hair. To stigmatize autism into something negative is harmful and that’s exactly what Melania is doing.

  • GroundControl500

    Exactly. Discussing whether someone exhibits autistic-like behavior is in no way defamatory. I suppose someone like Trump would think it is an insult but then he would think in such a shameful way.

    Angel, you hit the nail on the head. Melania is just prepetrating the notion that those with developmental challenges are shameful. She’s as idiotic as her husband.

    I’m pretty sure when you live in a glass house built from your husband’s DECADES of bullying, you shouldn’t throw stones. Or lawsuits.

    And PS … Melania, for the love of God, learn the definition of bullying. Because all this, especially after that Youtuber’s statement, IS NOT BULLYING! Go on twitter and check out @realDonaldJTrump if you want to read God’s honest, gut wrenching, pull your hair out, bullying. I can literally feel the hateful, lying, crazy mean energy from that account through my phone. Someone should really put a California 5150 hold on him, he’s liable to hurt someone(s) with his deranged, deceitful, lying paranoia and mean hateful bullying. Thankfully he’s not in a position of power or near nuclear codes. ……..oh wait.

    We’re so screwed.
