First Lady Melania Trump thanked Chelsea Clinton on Tuesday. The former first daughter delivered a plea to the media to keep Donald and Melania’s son, Barron, out of negative coverage in the press. Melania tweeted:
“Thank you, Chelsea Clinton – so important to support all of our children in being themselves!”#StopChildhoodBullying
Chelsea Clinton is the only child of Bill and Hillary Clinton. She defended President Trump’s son by arguing that he should be left alone. The Daily Caller had previously criticized Barron for his casual dress while boarding Air Force One on Sunday.
Chelsea Clinton wrote on Twitter: “It’s high time the media and everyone leave Barron Trump alone and let him have the private childhood he deserves.” Hours later, Clinton posted another tweet actually shaming those who criticized the president’s son:
“Barron is A KID. No child should be talked about in the below manner-in real life or online. And for an adult to do so? For shame.”
This was not the first time that Chelsea Clinton defended the president’s youngest son. In January, after social media users began criticizing the appearance of Barron at the president’s inauguration ceremony, Clinton tweeted, “Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid. Standing up for every child also means opposing POTUS policies that hurt kids.”
What do you think about Chelsea Clinton’s defense of Barron Trump? What do you think about Melania Trump’s expression of gratitude?
