Wearing Thin

Although the mainstream media won’t say one nice thing about Melania’s beautiful choice in clothes, they have decided to weigh in on Barron’s apparel.

He’s been wearing T-shirts and shorts, you see, and that just isn’t appropriate dress for the First Child.

Ford Springer writes in the Daily Caller a story headlined “It’s High Time Barron Trump Starts Dressing Like He’s in the White House.” Here’s the picture that set him off:

“Barron is the youngest son of Donald Trump and the only child the president shares with Melania Trump. Time and time again Barron has proved that he’s just a normal 11-year-old kid, despite the fact that his dad is the President of the United States and he lives in the White House. One thing that isn’t normal though is the way he dresses when he joins his parents for a public appearance.

“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.

“Think about how many times your parents forced you to dress up when you were a kid for a special occasion. No matter how hard you resisted, it was inevitable, you weren’t leaving the house until you had your tie tied, your shirt tucked in nice and neat with your hair combed, and a blazer on.

“That’s not how it goes for the president’s youngest child.

“Donald Trump and Melania always depart the White House looking their best. The president wore a fine tailored suit and Melania wore an elegant dress just as jaw-dropping as the last. But then Barron steps out in a t-shirt, khaki shorts and some suede loafers.”

Oh the horror! I’m clutching my pearls.

Actually, the press would also be alarmed if he did wear a suit all the time. Can you imagine what they would say? That he’s not a normal young boy. That his parents were denying him his childhood. That there was something wrong with a boy who preferred dressing up to casual clothes. That he had an attitude of elitism. It could go on and on.

I imagine it’s difficult enough to be suddenly transported to a new home and school and to require Secret Service protection wherever you go. Besides, it’s summer and a boy doesn’t want to be in some stuffy, hot clothes.

They’ve already accused him of being autistic. What’s next transgender? But that would probably be OK with them.

This is why people are turning off the media. Constant attack is wearing thin. But don’t you dare to criticize their sartorial choices. That would be mean!
