Photos of Barron Trump, son of former President Donald Trump and Melania Trump, have gone viral as they depict just how much the young man has grown since being thrust into the spotlight at the presidential Inauguration in 2017.
Many are surprised at the height of the 16-year-old young man, which the New York Post notes is “6 feet 7.”
On Father’s Day, Barron posted a touching picture of him being held by his father.
The Western Journal noted that “some leftists took the opportunity to insult the minor for his physical appearance.”
A Twitter account with the handle @TheBarronTrump1 posted a picture showing Barron, wearing a suit and a pink tie, towering over a woman. The photo had garnered over 35,000 likes as of Tuesday.
Sadly, some on the left decided to use the moment to mock young Barron Trump and his family.
“Barron Trump keeps growing in an effort to get further away from his dad,” one user mocked.
Another Twitter user, a coward who goes by the name Anonymous Charles, declared he had no reservations regarding insulting a minor for no reason other than his family name.
“Barron Trump is a pre-scumbag. He’s not off limits, since Chelsea Clinton and Sasha and Malia Obama weren’t off limits. How do I know he’s a pre-scumbag? Easy – mom’s a tone-deaf mail-order bride, dad’s a scumbag soon to be in jail, and none of the other kids are decent humans.”
USA Today, reporting on the presidential Inauguration in January 2017, noted how Barron Trump was the subject of “inappropriate and disheartening attacks from the left,” calling out “Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich for tweeting that Barron would be “this country’s first homeschool shooter.”
The Western Journal reports that Rich was suspended after the tweet, but she returned to the show later that year according to TV Guide.
