SNL Writer Deletes Tweet Saying Barron Trump Will be America’s ‘First Homeschool Shooter’

A writer for Saturday Night Live broke the usual rule about not targeting the children of politicians we disagree with.

For approximately three hours today, SNL “Weekend Update” writer Katie Rich had a tweet up saying that President Trump‘s 10 year old son, Barron, was going to grow up to become America’s “first homeschool shooter.”

Rich eventually deleted her tweet, though not before Twitter users took notice:

For the record, Barron Trump is not homeschooled, and there are plans for him and Melania Trump to live in the president’s New York penthouse until he finishes the year at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School.
