Left-wing celebrity Rosie O’Donnell brought President-elect Donald Trump’s son into the fold on Tuesday, speculating that the 10-year-old is on the autism spectrum.
“Barron Trump Autistic?” asked O’Donnell. “[I]f so – what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic.”
The former comedian also attached a YouTube video analyzing Trump’s young son’s mannerism, linking them to autism.
Although O’Donnell contends she was simply raising awareness of the issue, and made it clear that there is no shame in autism, many on social media felt O’Donnell’s motivation for the tweet was soaked in malice, not concern, and that Barron should always be “off-limits.”
As noted by Fox News Insider, “O’Donnell was criticized in February after she joked at a comedy show that she’d rather have ‘autistic triplets’ than her hard-to-manage teenagers.”
It’s no secret that O’Donnell is no fan of the president-elect, or that he is no fan of her. The former “View” host has called Trump a “snake-oil salesman on Little House On The Prairie,” and an “ass.” Mr. Trump has called Rosie a “slob” and a “real loser,” and claimed she “ate like a pig” while attending his wedding to Marla Maples.
