I'll be real and have a serious discussion. I'm not a Trump supporter, particularly right wing, or American. I'm an independent , rather interested, observer.
In your second paragraph you seem to project rather a lot on to Barron, as I suppose some of us do. You rightly include the word 'probably' because you are only seeing what you see and have drawn your own conclusions with very little to go on other than what you've seen on the news.
When I saw him I saw a smartly dressed, well behaved child coping admirably with two huge occasions whilst practically the whole World was focussed on him, his father and their family.
Whether he is spoilt or has mummy issues is neither here nor there, that's just your conjecture.
What is fact is that after his first appearance there was huge debate, well publicised in the Press, about the state of his mental health. Never mind who started it or who got involved with it, there was massive coverage.
Fast forward a little while and the child makes a second appearance, only to have someone make a tasteless (and well publicised) ' joke' about him.
Here is my leap into conjecture. As a ten year old, at the very time my father achieved high office and the family were proud of him, how would I feel if people questioned my mental health and someone put forward the idea that my family were so crazy I would end up shooting them?
And all because ... what? I'd turned up in my best suit and hardly fidgeted through two long and taxing public occasions.
If you think Barron needs help I'd suggest you do your bit by condemning those who take pot shots at him when he's managing not to show the family up when they're in the spotlight.
Please can you explain how the 'joke' had 'a base in a legitimate observation'. What was observed for that idea to occur to someone?

Hopefully Barron will buy SNL when his trust fund matures and fire the classless cow.

Good for SNL/NBC!
Now Viacom (who owns Comedy Central) needs to follow suit and fire Stephen Spinola for his insensitive, tasteless comment about Barron.
I believe in Math and the stats are saying I made a bad joke. I truly apologize if it hurt Barron Trump's feelings. And thats all I can say.

Every Left Wing crazy nut under the Sun is coming out of the woodwork.
Maybe she needs to be in a 50% tax bracket.

leftists are getting a reputation (deserved or not) for being intolerant, mean, petty, spiteful.
Things like this don't help.
It gives the impression that leftists are narrow-minded, nasty people.
