Wait, What? Daily Caller Piece Declares It’s ‘High Time’ Barron Trump Starts Dressing Properly

Remember when we agreed a while ago we should leave Barron Trump alone?

Back in January, in response to people making jokes at Barron’s expense (including an SNL writer who later apologized), the White House put out a statement basically asking the public if we could all just please leave him alone.

Well, behold this ridiculous take from The Daily Caller today:

I’ve been on the Barron Trump train from the start, but it’s about time the president’s son starts dressing the part…

Barron was returning to the White House from New Jersey on Sunday and while the president and first lady traveled in their Sunday best, young Barron looked like he was hopping on Air Force One for a trip to the movie theater.

Just a reminder here, but Barron Trump is 11.

The piece from entertainment reporter Ford Springer continues thusly:

His dad is always looking dapper and his mom has become a worldwide fashion icon since becoming first lady. The youngest Trump doesn’t have any responsibilities as the president’s son, but the least he could do is dress the part when he steps out in public.

Twitter didn’t take too kindly to this piece calling out an 11-year-old over the clothes he wears:

UPDATE –– 8:37 pm ET: Chelsea Clinton once again weighed in to defend the young Trump:
