Chelsea Clinton Defends Barron Trump's Right to Just Be a Kid

Chelsea Clinton is speaking out to defend President Trump‘s 10-year-old son Barron Trump from critics and to let people know he deserves to just be a child.

The 36-year-old former First Daughter was just 12-years-old when her dad Bill Clinton became president in 1993, so she definitely understands what Barron is going through right now.

While Chelsea is sticking up for Barron, she doesn’t have the same stance for the president.

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,” she tweeted on Sunday morning (January 22).

Chelsea‘s tweet comes after Barron has been hit with lots of cyberbullying following his appearance at the presidential inauguration a few days ago.

    I agree. As much as I detest his father, I can’t pick on a 10 year old. Even his wife I feel bad for. Now those 2 older sons, yucky, yuck!

  • onlywatching

    agreed. it’s not his fault :(

    People are especially mean because they have this platform called social media. Chelsea and the others were lucky to be in the White House without the extra noise

  • Katrina

    yeah I guess Chelsea, definitely, and the Bush twins sort of, escaped the rise of social media, mostly, but the Obama girls… we didn’t hear too much, did we? Thankfully. They are children! Leave this kid alone, he’s a passenger on this trip.

  • Katrina

    we watched the Inauguration at work, and noticed his fidgeting and looks away to the heavens. All our gang thought was, poor kid, how do you process all of this, you’re 10. (is he 10?)

    I recall when Chelsea came to the White House at such an awkward age. We women all remember the age of no waist line. Unruly very, very curly hair, maybe braces. I felt sorry for her. The detractors I heard of were females who should have known better. I heard women at work make snide remarks. Glad I didn’t participate. And I feel certain when Chelsea sees her pictures back then she sees them in a bittersweet way. So, let’s give Barron a break he deserves or I will start googling old pictures of Chelsea at that age in the White House just to be as cruel as you all are.

    come on that kid is 10 years old! if you hate trump, go ahead, but leave that kid alone!

    The Bush twins had a song about them in 2010.

    DISCLAIMER: I am amongst the plethora of vocal citizens who are disgusted by Donald Trump — and long before he stumbled onto the campaign trail. However, on the other side of that saga, we have this issue with his son…

    The pathetic dialogue on these forums, by what must be the Lowest Common Denominators of so-called “Americans” amongst us, truly exhibits the growing insensitivity and gross verbal abuse patterns in our society.

    So surely these cowardly, extremely negative and hurtful remarks (by anyone) towards a child ought not be a surprise. Nonetheless, this sort of behavior suggests to the world outside our borders what a sorry bunch the lesser educated (or the merely disturbed) in our society have become.

    This does not fare well for any society when its citizens post such treasonous speech as we see in these forums… and the publicly poisonous arrows thrown at defenseless, innocent 10 year-olds.

    One has to ask themselves… what kind of desperate adult uses their media spotlight and/or celebrity to demean and degrade a child on a national level??

    If our society cannot save itself, from itself, who or what will?

    Social Media is a disgrace. No one would have the nerve to speak to a child that way in person. Its just an outlet for vile people to get away with how they really think. Shows you what people are really made of in this day & age.

    I’m glad she said something. The way that these celebrities have been attacking and making fun of Barron, well, it’s just disgusting. Republicans never went after Sasha and Malia. It’s going to be hard enough for Barron because, unfortunately, he’s going to be going to schools where the parents probably will not want their children to associate with him (because, that’s how Democrats are). But, it’s always been the case that children of Democrats are off limits, but children of Republicans are fair game. Look at the difference in how even Chelsea and Ivanka have been treated. Both these young women have fathers with horrible histories with women, but yet Ivanka is harassed for it while Chelsea has remained unscathed/protected.

    To be clear, you do know that Chelsea Clinton was the First Kid during her father’s presidency BEFORE social media became a thing, right? Hell, the Internet was barely a thing at that time. People were nasty to her when she was a kid and her family even back in that day & age, primarily through right-wing hate-radio and right-wing hate-rags.

    In this day & age, it’s just easier for assholes to spew shit without repercussions or consequences; they’ve never needed the Internet or social media to be deplorable.
