After POTUS Donald Trump tweeted for schools to be opened despite the ravaging coronavirus pandemic, the news has taken the Internet by storm as people dragged his son Barron Trump into the school opening battle. 

Trump tweeted on August 4, “OPEN THE SCHOOLS!!!” immediately drawing flak for being “stupid”.



 

The president’s tweet comes after the Maryland governor, Larry Hogan, overturned Trump's order that pushed for reopening of schools.The Montgomery County, on July 31, prohibited private and independent schools from reopening in person, including St. Andrew’s Episcopal School which 14-year-old Barron will be attending. Health officer Dr. Travis Gayles cited "increase in transmission rates for COVID-19 in the State of Maryland, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Virginia, particularly in younger age groups" in a statement about the order.

But even after the order, it seems that the president is still vouching for all schools to be opened despite knowing that the order has dismissed his demands a few days earlier.
Over this rant, bestselling author Don Winslow of ‘The Power of the Dog’ fame tweeted, “Dear Stupid, You can't even get your own son's school to open.They have refused.The school where your son Barron is being educated refuses to open because it's not safe.Now sit there, eat your Big Mac, and shut up.”



 

 

Bishop and activist Talbort Swan too dragged Trump’s son into the battle tweeting, “SEND BARRN FIRST!!!!”. 



 

Intelligencer reports that Barron’s school — St. Andrew’s Episcopal, which charges $42,190 for a year of middle school — remains closed for the fall. 

Twitter seems infuriated over Trump's demand in what can be seen as apocalyptic times, thanks to the pandemic. The president has repeatedly claimed that children pose less of a risk of spreading Covid-19, and instead theorized that keeping children out of schools was the greater risk. He has constantly been seen trying to downplay the severity of case increases, attributing them to higher testing rates, though his own public health experts have disputed that as the sole reason.

“Barron’s school isn’t safe. What makes you think my neighborhood school is safe?”. Another user tweeted, “Maryland governor @LarryHogan just gave him cover, by taking away Barron's school's superintendent the right to close Barron's school. Only private schools. Just for Donald and Barron. You can't even make this shit up.”



 

 



 

 

Some people went to the extent of directly asking the president to “resign” for making such insensitive statements.



 

 

People called Trump ignorant and said opening of schools might trigger a second wave of infection. "How damn ignorant can you be? If we open up schools that will be the trigger for a second wave. Just one case spreads it to hundreds in each school. Who bring it home to their parents and grandparents. We are going to kill a generation of mothers and fathers cause your stupid ass," tweeted a user. 



 

Some believed that it is not safe to let kids go out when the US is struggling to contain the pandemic and tweeted that they are not going to “sacrifice” their kids. “Why don't YOU sit your stupid ass in a classroom with a bunch of kids all day for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for a MONTH straight and prove that it's safe.We're not sacrificing OUR kids for YOU, a*****e,” an enraged user tweeted.
