A video clip from President Donald Trump’s inauguration showing 10-year-old Barron refusing to hold his mother’s hand is making the rounds on various liberal media outlets.
The video was taken during President Trump’s inaugural parade on January 20th. As the president walks down the street holding wife Melania’s hand, Barron can be seen pulling his own hand away as his mother attempts to grab hold of it.
The 18-second video was uploaded to YouTube on January 20th and has since been viewed nearly 800,000 times.
Other images from the inauguration show Barron yawning while his father is being sworn in as president, according to The Sun. He was also seen yawning during Trump’s victory speech on election night.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Yes, you read all of that correctly. The liberal media is making much ado about nothing over a 10-year-old boy not wanting to hold his mothers hand in public. What 10-year-old boy would want to be seen holding his mother’s hand in front of the entire world? At that age you want to be ‘big’, you want to look grown up. Holding your mother’s as tens of millions of people are watching you is embarrassing for any young boy. Then for the liberal media to make a big deal of young Barron being so exhausted from the inaugural events that he could be seen yawning during his dad’s speech?
This is the level of ridiculousness the liberal media has become known for. This is the kind of nonsense that we have all come to expect. They ignore legitimate news such as Hillary stealing the Democratic primary from her fellow candidate, Bernie Sanders. But, they fabricate nonsense like this out of thin air and then have the audacity to cry foul when they are accused of being fake news.
Recently, “Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich was suspended indefinitely from the sketch comedy program after making what she later called an “offensive” joke about Barron on Twitter.
“Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter,” Rich tweeted, according to The New York Times.
Rich deleted the tweet and deactivated her account after receiving backlash from fellow Twitter users. She later reactivated her account and posted an apology.
“I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet,” she wrote on Jan. 23. “I deeply regret my actions & offensive words. It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry.”
On January 24th, the White House published a statement asking that Barron’s privacy be respected.
“It is a longstanding tradition that the children of Presidents are afforded the opportunity to grow up outside of the political spotlight,” the statement said, according to Variety. “The White House fully expects this tradition to continue. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.”
The statement echoes a tweet from Chelsea Clinton:
