All Trump Kids Except Barron Lose Secret Service Protection and Now Barron Trends No. 1 on Twitter
As we reported yesterday, the adult Trump children lost their Secret Service protection on Tuesday. Most adult presidential family members lose Secret Service protection the day of the inauguration, but it can be extended on the order of the president, which – of course, Trump did. One can ask “Why?” Trump extended the protection. The answer is likely some combination of paranoia and renting rooms at Trump’s places. One thing we know, money was involved, or Trump wouldn’t have done it.
But Barron Trump is the exception and why not? We support continuing protection for a minor under the age of sixteen. We support it, even when it comes to the Trumps. Unlike adults, children can be easily distracted and don’t sense “Something is wrong,” quite as well as grown adults, though we can speculate on whether any of the adult Trump kids possess that sense. Still, we support it. Children are vulnerable and it wasn’t Barron’s choice to have his sperm do… “dad” run for president.
Somehow, the fact that Barron Trump still has his Secret Service protection caused Twitter to shake this morning and we’re not quite sure why. Perhaps it’s just because everyone wrote “Except Barron,” and that alone did it. But without regard to how it all came about, Twitter is very much having a discussion about Barron this morning. We want to reiterate, this is a kid and we don’t approve of this one below.
Don Jr.’s ex girlfriend is on Twitter. She wrote that Barron once threw his tray of food at a female attendant on their plane. It may already be too late to save him.

The second one is unfair. Perhaps it happened, but perhaps it’s also a story embellished terribly by an “ex” girlfriend (whatever that means because all we know is that Junior went from his wife to Kimberley) and perhaps this story occurred when Barron was two.

Some were far funnier:
Barron: "Dad, can you help me with my economics homework?"
Donald: "No, son. It wouldn't be right."
Barron: "I know, but will you try it anyway?"

I’m still actively rooting for Barron to become a progressive.

See above, we’re also rooting for Barron to be a Bernie/AOC Democrat. Really rebel, Barron! They don’t love you anyway (except mom).

Who thinks Barron is the only Trump kid who’ll grow up knowing Diaper Daddy is broke? pic.twitter.com/VEGDPmSQme

I don’t think his son Barron has committed any crimes, but that’s the exception.
I know Melanie will be upset that I’m talking about him. Sorry.

This is pretty good:
Point to one negative tweet about Barron. We’ll wait.
