Melania Trump is not publicly considering suing Rosie O’Donnell for calling Barron Trump autistic, but she does want the video taken down and she wants an apology. The threat of a lawsuit is definitely out there though and I don’t doubt that Melania would do just that if Rosie doesn’t back off. I don’t blame her in the least. Donald Trump hasn’t even taken office and the likes of O’Donnell are smearing his children, especially their youngest son. In two videos, both James Hunter and Rosie O’Donnell are claiming that the way Barron Trump was clapping and his distraction and yawning are signs of autism. Give me a freaking break. The boy is 10 years-old… I’ve seen tons of kids clap like that when they are tired. He had been clapping all night for his dad and he looks tuckered out. It’s vile and evil to smear a child like this, especially if he is the little boy of the President of the United States. Shame on O’Donnell.
The guy that made the video will be removing it. Hunter said he made it to defend Barron from bullies online. Instead, what he did was cement the skewed idea that Barron suffers from autism, which I highly doubt. Of course, O’Donnell seized on it. Her child was diagnosed with autism and Rosie is trying to make this all about herself, regardless of how it hurts the Trump family or how it stigmatizes Barron. Melania has hired a lawyer who asked Hunter to take the video down and he has agreed.
From the Daily Mail:
A YouTuber who faced a legal threat from Melania Trump over a video which claimed her son Barron could be autistic has vowed to remove the clip.
James Hunter created the video in an effort to stop people bullying ten-year-old Barron Trump online.
Hunter, who is on the autism spectrum himself, wanted to highlight the issue, however, Trump and his wife Melania threatened to sue Hunter claiming the youngster is not autistic.
Speaking to Gossip Cop, Hunter said he did not want to cause any hurt to the Trump family. Instead he wanted to raise the profile of the ‘autism epidemic’.
He said: ‘I’m honestly kinda scared right now. The only reason I made the video is because I saw how much social media was bullying Barron Trump, and I wanted it to stop. I’d be really sad if I’ve made the situation worse, but I never could’ve imagined that the video would get so much press.
‘I was just sending it privately to people who were bullying him to explain to them that Barron might be autistic, and that’s it isn’t okay to bully him for it, because I know what it’s like to be bullied for being autistic. But then Rosie O’Donnell shared it and it blew up.
‘I myself am on the spectrum, and I honestly just wanted to bring light to the autism epidemic. I have a lot of respect for Melania Trump. I believe she’s a very smart and I’ll think she’ll be a great First Lady.’
Rosie O’Donnell herself is acting as a bully here. It’s just vicious even for the likes of her. Many parents of autistic children themselves slammed O’Donnell for putting out a lie in an effort to hurt the new First Family. O’Donnell is claiming she was just trying to help Barron. Right. No one believes that for a second. O’Donnell shared the video of Trump’s son on Twitter last week with the caption: “Barron Trump Autistic? if so – what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic.” She knew that would hurt the Trump family, that’s why she pounced on it.
People complain that Donald Trump called O’Donnell a ‘fat pig’, a ‘slob’ and a ‘total degenerate’. But they never ever bring up how O’Donnell has treated Trump. This is just one example of that. There was nothing innocent about this or caring. This is who Rosie O’Donnell is. She’s vindictive and just plain old mean. O’Donnell needs to leave Barron out of her political feud with Trump. Anyone who would go after a little boy like this is just rotten inside and to the core.
