3. I think there's trouble on the board room

Melania did not want trump to run for president. She didn't want to give a speech. I'm betting that dickhead got her to go along with using one of his imaginary friends to write the speech. Then the campaign tried to throw her under the bus and the bucket of rancid potato salad of a husband didn't defend her. Young Barron only has a fleeting relationship with his corn stalk embellished father. The little prince has to watch his cheesey poof infested father fawn and feel up the more important kids.

6. Leave the kid out of this....

Kids are off limits in campaigns.

There's enough about Trump to critique without having to bring young Barron into the narrative.

IMO.

8. You are correct re children underage. However, those adult kids of

Donald's give me the creeps.
They're always hanging around just over his shoulder.
Especially Eric and Donald Jr.

10. Well they're adults actively participating in the campaign

So I'd say their actions are fair game for critique.

And IMO they give off as untrustworthy a vibe as their dad does.

20. as for this thread, no one here is criticizing Barron

the shrug-off reflects on Donald. I think Barron probably resents how his father treats his mother.

22. more likely that his dad is not really a big part of his life so that type of affection

 

is not something he usually gets so it was odd to him.

23. You're advocating trolling on a 10 year old?

I'm at a loss here...

Don the Con is ripe with fruit for political critique. I still say leave the comments about the kid out of it.

What if Barron is slightly autistic and doesn't want to be touched for that reason? There could be many reasons for his reactions to his father's touch.

Personal ethics and basic humanity should prevail.

25. Nothing of the sort. I'm referring to DUers being free to comment on whatever without being

shamed.

26. No, if you say or do something shameful

(like trashing a 10 year old child publically) you will get shamed. Or hidden. Or both. Not saying this particular comment rose to that, but there actually rules on DU and some things are out of bounds.

29. couldn't agree more, but here's what trumpkin has to say about being a father

in which he states the he's "not gonna do anything to take care of them," he'll just ''supply the funds and she'll take care of the kids''

from this EXCELLENT collections of many of trumpkin's myriad ignorant, sexist, racist comments, lots of them recorded for your listening pleasure...this is an invaluable source. keep this link:

https://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/donald-trump-said-a-lot-of-gross-things-about-women-on-howar?utm_term=.yrl04zOjl#.uh9519vk2

you won't beLIEVE some of the stuff he says on this page. what a goldmine for the dems. I hope they have it. do they have some sort of trump clearinghouse? if not, they should have some way to accept links like these, from which to cull seriously damaging clips from the mouth of the madman himself

11. Have a feeling he is going to grow up

to be a shithead, just like dear ole dad. He has his own floor at T Tower. Does he get any affection?

12. Barron looked like he did not want to be there

when the family came out after the speech. It really makes you wonder what his home life is like.

18. I remember that.

Look at how the adult Romneys were reacting. They were charmed by that moment, too. They knew what kind of man Romney was running against. Too bad they didn't have the decency to admit it.

21. i think that was one of those moments when they really realized what they were up against

 

and it wasn't about Obama's talent as a politician as much as just the type of person he is and how that naturally connects with others even without things like the speeches.

17. He's just a kid. We ought to leave him alone.

I don't care who his father is, or how rich his family is. Until he hits adulthood, he should be OFF LIMITS.

I remember when Rush Limbaugh put up a picture of Chelsea Clinton as the "White House dog." One of my 3 college roommates used to watch Limbaugh's show and I saw it. If I had the ability to jump through the screen, wrap my hands around his neck, and choke that fucker to death, I would have done it at that moment. God, I was so angry, because kids should be off limits. I've wanted to do the same thing to trolls who have said nasty things about Sasha and Malia.

While this thread has not risen to that level, I don't think we should be in the habit of targeting Barron for any reason. I feel bad for the kid. That should have been a really exciting moment for him and something was obviously disturbing him.

19. No one is targeting him in this thread

I feel bad for him for multiple reasons, think there's a good chance he won't grow up to be an asshole - I think he probably sees very clearly and resents how his father treats his mother. The shrug-off of Donald is a comment on Donald, not Barron.

He's a ten yr old kid.

30. He is 10 right?

I hate Trump more than anything in this world, but let's leave this little boy out of it. At that age they look that way every time you take them somewhere they don't want to go.
