Rosie O’Donnell created a social media storm by posting a YouTube video suggesting that Donald Trump’s youngest son Barron, age 10, is autistic. As the saying goes, if it weren’t for low-class, she’d have no class at all.
“Barron Trump Autistic?” she tweeted.’
“[I]f so, what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic,”
Warning: Parts of this video are disturbing, hateful and graphic. Viewer discretion is advised.

The ongoing feud between the actress/comedienne and the president-elect got white-hot to the point where O’Donnell became unhinged in an all-cap Twitter rant after Trump won the November 8 election.
But up until now she kept family out of it — no more. Perhaps she became emboldened when the left began attacking other family members — especially wife Melania. Whatever the cause, people were appalled.
Is Rosie O’Donnell really going after Barron Trump? That’s low even for her. Attacking children bc you don’t like their parent(s) is wrong.

@USRealityCheck Here’s the deal. Barron is 10yrs old. He’s 5’11” so folks think he’s lots older. Remember how u acted at 10? He’s polite

And one might factor in that 10-year-olds tend to get a little fidgety when they’re presented on stage at 3 A.M., as he was when his father announced that he had won the general election.
The parents of special needs kids weren’t at all amused either.

This isn’t the first time O’Donnell broached the subject of autism in an offensive manner. She recently quipped onstage that that as a parent, her teenagers were so difficult that she’d trade them in for autistic triplets in an instant. That earned her the wrath of the National Autism Association.
