KEY POINTS

  • Donald Trump didn't include son Barron Trump as part of his whole family
  • Barron Trump sparked pity from netizens after he was left out of Donald Trump's speech
  • The POTUS didn't also mention his sons, Tiffany Trump and Melania Trump 

Barron Trump recently sparked pity after his dad, Donald Trump, made a bizarre comment about him during his White House speech.

After it was announced that the POTUS has been acquitted from being impeached, he addressed his family by apologizing to them.

“I want to apologize to my family for having them have to go through a phony, rotten deal by some very evil and sick people. And Ivanka is here, and my sons, and my whole family. And that includes Barron. He’s up there, he’s a young boy. Stand up, honey. Ivanka, thank you, honey,” he said.

Trump’s statement made it seem as though Barron isn’t a part of his family because the 13-year-old was mentioned after his older half-sister, Ivanka Trump. It is also important to note that the POTUS didn’t mention his three other children, Don Jr., Eric, and Tiffany, as well as his wife, Melania Trump.

However, it seems that the public’s sympathy was directed at Barron, who didn’t join his family during the State of the Union address. However, all four of his half-siblings were there.

On Twitter, some critics slammed Trump for forgetting to include Barron as a party of his whole family.

“He’s so [expletive] weird. Why wouldn’t Barron be included in my ‘whole family?’” Twitter user @BrendaJeanCDN said.

“So kind of him to include Barron as a member of his whole family… why wouldn’t be automatically be included?” Twitter user @JonLaird87 said.

“Trump namechecks Ivanka – but not Melania – and, as an afterthought, includes Barron as part of his ‘whole family,’” Twitter user @dcpoll said.

Meanwhile, some netizens also felt bad for Melania’s young son.

“Can anyone imagine what life has been like for Barron Trump in the last three years? Can you imagine what other kids may have said to him; what he’s read online? Can you imagine for three years having to read lies calling your dad a traitor? Did the left once care? No,” Twitter user @supersleuthgrl said.

“Barron, unfortunately, had to grow up surrounded by this deranged convulsive mess the Democrats throw around like a baboon throws their excrement at onlookers. He’s a young man now and knows full well what Democrats/deep state are attempting to do to his dad,” Twitter user @BlackIrishl said.
