Rosie O’Donnell and Barron
Surprised about any of this? Not if you were carefully paying attention to my comments!
Back in February, more than nine months ago, I wrote in a comment:
Actually I have word that Trump’s youngest son has some sort of developmental or learning disability.
People who follow my blog knew about this nine months before the rest of the world! However, unlike Rosie, I was more circumspect in naming whatever he has, and I’m not 100% sure it’s a “spectrum” thing just because I’ve heard second-hand accounts from parents at his school making their own armchair diagnoses (although after watching the video, I think it probably is a “spectrum” thing). What I did hear, all rumors that I can’t confirm, is that he has no friends at school and his academic performance is below par compared to the other children at that school.
Not that there’s anything wrong with having Asperger’s syndrome, if that’s what he has. I dislike it when commenters use “autistic” or “aspergery” as an insult.

I didn’t read the article but I read a few like it. It’s pure & utter horseshit. Shame on you for calling attention to this, Lion. The kid yawned after a boring speech. He’s a normal boy. If he’s into solitary pursuits it’s because his upbringing is so weird.
That cat appears to already be out of the bag, which is why I am blogging about it today. It doesn’t appear to be “pure & utter horseshit.” It also helps to explain why Melania is staying with Barron in Trump Tower and not moving to the White House.
At least we should credit the mainstream Trump-hating media for keeping Trump’s kid’s problems private for such a long time.
