KEY POINTS

  • President Donald Trump just delivered his State of the Union address
  • Donald Trump's son Barron missing during SOTU
  • Netizens ask where Barron Trump is

President Donald Trump and Melania Trump’s son Barron was missing during his father’s SOTU.

On Tuesday, the POTUS and FLOTUS joined forces for the president’s State of the Union Address. However, their 13-year-old son was noticeably missing at the event, which prompted many to ask where Barron was and why he wasn’t present there.

“Why wasn't youngest #BarronTrump at the #SOTU ?” @cosmicfirepeace asked.

“They have to lock him up in the basement after the sun goes down?” @georgezab responded.

“Barron Trump isn’t at the #SOTU because he’s streaming Minecraft,” @dadkisser4life added.

“BARRON TRUMP ABSENT last night. Maybe mom M protecting her handsome 13 yr old?” @BeauxMot opined.

This is not the first time Barron did not attend the POTUS’ SOTU address. In 2018, Barron was also not present and many even joked that he was being replaced by another kid named Joshua Trump who had been bullied over his name.

“TMZ is reporting that Barron Trump was traumatized by news of the #SOTU invitation list after believing he had been replaced by Joshua Trump as the President's youngest son,” @BoobyJargon wrote.

In 2019, the first lady invited Joshua, a 6th grade student in Wilmington, Delaware, after he was being bullied simply because his family name is “Trump.” Melania’s Be Best initiative is campaigning for anti-bullying, so the FLOTUS helped Joshua.

“Barron Trump has been replaced. #SOTU #StateOfOurUnion,” @vodkasnowflake commented.

However, Barron’s absence at the SOTU 2019 only prompted the critics to speculate about the worst scenarios. One said that “ Barron has died.” Another said that the boy who was with Melania instead of Barron was Trump’s child with Stormy Daniels and the FLOTUS either didn’t notice or didn’t care at all.  

In related news, last week Trump and Melania were spotted leaving the White House to catch a flight to Florida. However, many also observed that their son was not with them at the time, but he was with his parents at the Super Bowl.
