Melania Trump will surely have a lot more to do, now that she carries the title of the First Lady of The United States. But before everything else, she has the most important role of her life – being a mother. So, her first job will always be to protect her son, Barron Trump.
He’s only 10 years old, and already has the weight of the world on his slender shoulders.
Despite being just an innocent little boy who haven’t even finished elementary school, he has been subjected to public ridicule so intense that would crush even an adult.
During the inauguration ceremony of his father, President Trump, “Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich tweeted the sickest “joke” ever —“Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.” She apologized, took the message down, and was suspended indefinitely from the TV show, but the potential psychological harm on an innocent minor cannot be taken back.
Barron and his mother, Melania, are still living in family’s penthouse triplex atop Trump Tower in Manhattan. Despite evil assumptions and speculations, it was announced that the First Lady is hiring staffers in anticipation of moving to the nation’s capital, after ensuring that her son’s education isn’t disrupted.
When Barack Obama was President of the United States, he made it clear that his daughters Sasha and Malia are off limits, and all Americans respected that. However, now that we have a Republican President again, it somehow became OK to target innocent children and use them to make fun of something else. And Barron is in the middle of all this – as an innocent victim of some sort of ‘double standards’.
Barron is exponentially vulnerable, not only for being target of angry liberals. After moving into the White House, he’s to be the first male child to live in the presidential digs since John F. Kennedy Jr. in the early 1960s. Despite decades of feminism and supposed advances in gender equality, societal expectations for boys still outdistance those for the girls, reports New York Post.
“The culture expects a boy to be strong, brave courageous, always to be able to fix things and do things on his own — not showing his feelings, because that’s what boys do,” said Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil, Ph.D., a New York-based family therapist and author.
Barron’s bullying begun in the early-morning hours after the election, as Internet trolls speculated that there was “something wrong” with the unsmiling youngster as he struggled to stay awake. That’s exactly what Melania vowed to fight as a First Lady during the campaign.
And she’ll do that. She’ll protect him like a lioness protecting her little cub.
