On Sunday morning, President Donald Trump announced that was killed during a “daring and dangerous” raid by U.S. troops., the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS),
Later that same day, the president and and First Lady Melania Trump were greeted with a chorus of boos at Game 5 of the Nationals-Astros World Series in Washington, DC.
Given that the game was in D.C., a very liberal town, it comes as little surprise that the crowd might be hesitant to give Trump his due for scoring a major victory in the war against Islamic extremism, but to see the president’s critics zero in on Trump’s son, Barron, is something to behold.
(The young Trump has grown quite a bit since his father took office, towering well over 6 feet tall, even though he’s just 13 years old.)
So consumed in their hatred of the president, it wasn’t enough to see Trump booed on national television as some fans chanted “lock him up.” Many took to Twitter to continue the attack because Trump attended the World Series without Barron.
Never mind that the young boy may not be a baseball fan, or simply did not want to attend a game that started after 8 p.m. Barron Trump is seldom seen in the limelight and the family goes to great lengths to protect him from a liberal media that knows few limits in their quest to destroy his father.
Recall the fake severed Trump head drenched in blood — not exactly a warming image for a young boy to see of his father. Barron was 11 years old when comedian Kathy Griffin pulled that stunt.
There was no shortage of tweets looking to exploit Barron’s absence as a means to smear President Trump:
A Father not taking his son to a baseball game, let alone a World Series game, is perhaps the worst indictment of a “family man” I’ve ever heard.
I have a feeling Trump could have gotten Barron a ticket, if he got tickets for Scalise and Gaetz.

Wait, did Trump really not bring Barron to the game? Or his grandchildren?

People keep noting that Trump didn’t bring his teenage son to the World Series without considering the possibility that Barron doesn’t want to be seen in public with him.

If you were Barron would you want to go to a baseball game with Old Man Trump? @realDonaldTrump

Maybe if Barron had distracted everyone by storming the SCIF to disrupt the impeachment inquiry, Trump would have taken him to the ball game. pic.twitter.com/vSVXwXDdhi

Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, replied to the tweet from Anderson, a former Democratic candidate for Congress, to say that the president knew the liberal crowd would likely react as they did and did not want to subject young Barron to that.
Suffice it to say, Trump Jr. was livid.
This is the dumbest take ever! I mean f-ing stupid!!!
Maybe he knew that the scumbag lobbyists and liberal elite in the 94% leftist swamp of DC would behave exactly as they did and therefore shielded a child from that kind of behavior.
That’s great parenting moron! https://t.co/oeLqaR02Is

Not that there wasn’t support for Trump’s decision, as seen here:
Maybe Trump didn’t take Barron to the game because it’s not good for him. Maybe Barron doesn’t like crowds. Maybe Trump knows people will be booing him and doesn’t want to expose his kid to that. Maybe he’s protecting him. Going after Trump because Barron wasn’t there is gross.

If you were curious why the Left lost so badly in 2016, and will lose again next year, look no further than the Barron trend. Remember when they told us how kids were off limits? Yeah, that was cute.
