Barron Trump, why so glum? No smiles at RNC 2020 appearance sparks worry: ‘My heart actually hurts for him’

As the house roared with thunderous claps, Barron too stood up — and as usual, Twitter erupted with more height jokes wondering how tall he is — and many hoping he would soon go for the NBA draft

Barron Trump has been the talk of the town ever since the Republican National Convention started. Even as US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump's 14-year-old son wasn't on the speakers' list, Twitter users couldn't stop wondering whether he will make an appearance along with Eric Trump, Tiffany Trump, Donald Trump Jr and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Born March 20, 2006, Barron is Trump's only child with Melania with a German and Scottish descent on his father's side and Slovenian descent on his mother's side. Earlier, he has made several political appearances at events like the South Carolina campaign rally, his father's 2016 RNC acceptance speech, presidential victory speech and the inauguration ceremony in January 2017. On the final day of RNC 2020, Barron could be seen among the audience cheering for his father and other family members. As the house roared with thunderous claps, Barron too stood up — and as usual, Twitter erupted with more height jokes wondering how tall he is — and many hoping he would soon go for the NBA draft. "I can’t get past the fact that Barron Trump is like 6’6” at 14 years old. he doesn’t even fit in the picture when he stands up," one tweet went viral with a clip from the convention.



 

 

Among all those tweets, several viewers also noticed that Barron never smiles. "Did you ever notice Barron Trump never smiles," one tweet read and another said, "# Poor kid # Barron Trump never smiles # he always looks so sad and depressed. I would say more but he is just a kid." One Twitter user even went on to say: "I literally don’t think I’ve seen Barron Trump smile in the past our years."



 

 



 

 



 

 

One tweet read: "Barron Trump never smiles. My heart actually hurts for him." Another said, "Barron Trump’s eyes are always cast downward. He never smiles. Always looks sad. This should tell you everything."



 

 



 

 

Comparing Trump and former President Barack Obama's parenting skills, one tweet read: "Poor Bannon! He's always ignored. I never see his father smile at him or even make eye contact. And when cameras aren't on him, Trump probably never even sees Barron. And you think of Obama coaching Sasha's basketball team as POTUS." Another old tweet read: "Ever see Trump talk to Barron, smile at Barron, put his arm around Barron’s shoulder, take this pitifully introverted 15 year old to the golf course with him? No. Because Barron is just a sperm-egg accident, not a true son. Hey Barron, get smart, start planning your revenge now."



 

 



 

 

However, many came to Barron's defense and slammed those tweets. "Everyone is tweeting that Barron Trump looks unhappy and never smiles. Perhaps it's because you're all on the Internet tweeting about how a 14 year old "looks unhappy" and "never smiles". Idiots," one Twitter user wrote. Another said, "Barron Trump is 14. Please leave him out of your attacks on the Trump family."



 

 



 

 

One even went on to say: "As expected.. the disgusting attacks on Barron Trump have started. Good thing he's got a strong structure around him so he'll be shielded from this BS. There's something wrong with political left constantly attacking this child." Contradicting those views, one posted: "Most of us don't "go after" Barron Trump. He has gotten very tall, is handsome, and rarely smiles, that seems to be the gist of the remarks. Why would anyone attack Barron? We hate his father not him. I love all the fake outrage over nothing. As usual."



 

 



 

 

Although Barron is a public personality, thanks to his dad's popularity and position, the Internet should stay away from speaking on him, shouldn't they? Nevertheless, MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) cannot independently verify and does not support any claims being made on the Internet.
