(PoliticalLookout.com)- First Lady Melania Trump has been put in the position of having to defend her teenage son against leftists since 2016 now. Her young son, who is rarely seen in public, is a regular target for left-wing activists and even celebrities, with many making jibes at him because of their hatred for his father, the President of the United States.
Recently, First Lady Melania Trump took John Henson, a host on the Food Network, to task over “inappropriate and insensitive” comments he made about her young son.
“Sadly, we continue to see inappropriate and insensitive comments about the President’s son,” a representative of the First Lady said to The Hill on Tuesday. “As with every other administration, a minor child should be off-limits and allowed to grow up with no judgment or hate from strangers and the media,” Stephanie Grisham continued.
The statement comes after John Henson, the host Halloween Baking Championship, attacked Barron Trump on Father’s Day.
“I hope Barron gets to spend today with whoever his dad is,” Henson said.
Anyone who has seen a picture of Barron Trump can clearly tell that the president is his father. Not only do they look alike, but Barron towers in height over both his mother and father.
Then, after attacking Barron on Twitter, Henson went on to defend himself by claiming he was attacking the president instead. Sure…
With respect, I think you dissecting it is the issue. The joke was aimed at Trump and the mere mention of Barron’s name doesn’t mean it’s at his expense.
Although I respect your right to take issue with it.

“With respect, I think you dissecting it is the issue,” he said to somebody who made a point of his attack on young Barron. “The joke was aimed at Trump and the mere mention of Barron’s name doesn’t mean it’s at his expensive,” he said.
Barron Trump was also the target of a “joke” by actor Michael Rapaport recently. Well, not so much a joke, but a crass political point. Rappaport suggested President Trump should encourage Barron to go out and be exposed to the Chinese coronavirus.
