The ongoing Donald Trump vs Rosie O’Donnell Feud (which Rosie started when she attacked Trump’s looks when she was on the View)  took huge turn when O’Donnell hit below the belt and had the audacity to bring 10 year old Baron Trump into the fray with a  claim that  he may be autistic.

All I can say is HOW DARE HER? She is not a doctor, psychologist, therapist, neurologist, behavior expert, or even a body language expert. Her diagnostic technique is not formal or professional. Instead, she outs her own 3 year old  daughter and says that her daughter was recently diagnosed with autism and that she recognizes the signs in Baron. Well her daughter is not Baron and she did not formally diagnose the boy.

I am  appalled at Rosie  for even bringing this up in her horrible tweet :

Barron Trump Autistic? if so – what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic https://t.co/Acgy1Qxyqi via @YouTube

Apparently there was a video that was posted by a  YouTube user named  James Hunter, titled “Is Barron Trump Autistic? #StopTheBullying” which apparently  shows examples of Barron’s behavior at public events. The video has been viewed more than 2.5 million times since it was posted Nov. 11.

It showed Barron clapping at the Republican National Convention and points out “his hands are moving erratically and not touching each other.” The video also shows him “making strange movements in his seat, typical in children with autism.”

“One of the biggest signs of autism is a lack of social skills and understanding,” the video said. “When Barron came on stage at the RNC his anti-social behavior was on display.”

It goes on to show Barron standing blank-faced on stage as his parents and siblings smile and clap. Then it shows Barron shrugging off an affectionate squeeze from his father.

In my view, this  is how a little information in the wrong hands- the hands of James Hunter who is also not a doctor can go awry. This incident also shows how someone with a huge following like Rosie O’Donnell can create even more havoc.

The ONLY ones who know if Baron has autism is his neurologist, physician, parents, and family members- no one else! Baron’s mother Melania has fought back and has threatened to sue the video maker and made suggesting that Rosie may be next in line for perpetuating what she claims in a lie as he insists Baron does not have autism.That is the right thing to do in order to put a stop to this potentially damaging labeling behavior, especially if it is not true as Melania says.

To play devil’s advocate- what if he does have it? Why put Baron on display and label him with something he may or may not have that can have serious implications on his future?

He may just be a shy or introverted type of young man. One thing for sure is that he was very disciplined as he stood up on the stage for such a long time without moving around while his President – Elect father gave his victory speech. Body language wise it was impressive behavior from any 10 year old child  or any adult, whether they were autistic or not.

As far as Baron looking blank- faced as the video stated, there may be other reasons for this besides autism. He may be simply uncomfortable with large crowds and with being suddenly thrown into the limelight.  He may be unhappy about having to be thrust out in public which may show on his face. Some children relish and bask in the limelight, while others retreat.

When the video said he shrugged off an affectionate squeeze from his father, I say  that many ten year old boys do not welcome open affection in public as it often embarrasses them. So in my view,  there was nothing atypical or “autistic” about that. The same holds true for the reported “strange clapping.” Personally, I didn’t see anything strange about Baron’s clapping. Once again it may seem odd to him that he has to now  be clapping for his dad in a context in whch he is not familiar.”

Baron may simply be a shy young man, just  like his mother Melania seems to be. He may not be comfortable in the public eye like his sister Ivanka or brothers Donny and Eric. Instead, he may also be shy like  his sister Tiffany.

Being in the public eye and knowing how to comport yourself takes  lot of time and practice. Even the best of celebrities feel uncomfortable. I should know as I have treated many of them personally. Throughout the years I have helped countless high profile people whom you would assume would be comfortable and at ease in any public arena, with their speaking and body language during talk show appearances, Academy Award speeches, and public speaking performances. So it is needless to say that a 10 year old boy may not be comfortable in this arena.

And let’s say for argument’s  sake that Baron may be on the spectrum. I say, “so what!” I know many incredibly successful people who were diagnosed and who function quite well. In fact I just had lunch with a wonderful producer-director last week who told me of his diagnosis. It certainly didn’t stop him from getting Emmy’s an Academy award, having a loving wife with whom he has been married for several decades, and two happy, well adjusted and successful children. It didn’t stop me from wanting to do some business with him. I also know a very successful attorney who hates  public gatherings and social events. At one time he confided in me that as an adult he was diagnosed with being on the spectrum. Once again his diagnosis didn’t hurt his career or his appeal from the ladies, who evidently found his shyness and perceived awkwardness as endearing. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has publicly admitted he may have the disorder and it certainly didn’t hurt him as he has thrived with an incredibly successful comedy career, a beautiful wife and children.

If Baron does happen to be on the spectrum, he may in fact  be the “new normal”. In  2014 the CDC observed 1 in 68 births had a spectrum disorder. In 2015 the figure rose to 1 in 45. The figures are not yet in for 2016 but there does appear to be an increase in the disorder.

Whether Baron does or does not have the disorder, he needs to be off limits, just like the Obamas made Sasha and Malika off limits. That is why the Clintons tried to make Chelsea off limits when Bill was President. I will never forget how horribly cruel the press and the public was to their daughter Chelsea when she was younger. They constantly  commented on how ugly she looked and how awkward she appeared in her behavior. And the end result is that she grew up to be poised and attractive with a loving husband and two children and there is apparent talk about her hitting the political stage in the future.

There has been considerable backlash against Rosie O’Donnell for her comments and rightfully so. Her friends and her foes have let it be known that her behavior has transcended politics and personal feuding. Now she ventured into seriously unacceptable and dangerous territory.

  1. Dr Glass can you please do a post on Dr. Jill Stein? What were her true intentions and motivations for trying to have recounts done in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin especially after she had said on record that if Hillary won she would most likely cause a nuclear war? Was it just about the money? She only wanted recounts in states that Trump won.

      1. Lots of people have teens and they don’t run away from home or act out. She has demonstrated a great deal of hostility towards family members which has been documented in the media. So before you defend Rosie, do your homework.

  2. I think the biggest factor in Barron’s behavior in that video is that it was 2:30 in the morning the night of the election! He was exhausted! And his father had just won the election to be president! All the other children of presidents have been considered off-limits–why isn’t it the same for Barron? Because his father is a Republican?

    1. Except there are other video’s and other pix and he ALWAYS has the same blank stare and never once smiling.
      And what makes talking about Barron relevant is not that his father is a R. It is that his father MOCKED a disabled person. Now I know you all have spun that just like you have denied the confession of sexual assault but the video’ do not lie.
      And when exactly did the R let up in bad mouthing the Obama girls or Chelsea for that matter?
      IMO Rosie did nothing wrong. She only asked what millions of us were thinking. If Barron had a broken leg or diabetes would it be a problem to speak of it?
      No the stigma is always about mental heath. That needs to change.

      1. This is NOT A POLITICAL BLOG! So take your hate elesewhere. I have NOT denied anything. I have reported what i have seen and heard in terms of body language. Making a diagnosis on a child in the media when you are not a professional and insinuating Barron is autistic is unconscionable or any disease or disorder for that matter

  3. What’s interesting is that Trump has said he’s seen it himself when a happy kid gets a vaccination then becomes autistic. That makes me wonder if he’s talking about his own kid, instead of realizing that some kids with autism regress instead of being born with the symptoms.

  4. As a teen, I acted as strange as possible. I didn’t do eye contact, was very uncomfortable with people I didn’t know and stayed quiet, just thinking. I’m pretty sure people would have said the same about me if I was on the public’s eye. I’m healthy, successful and happy, I was just extremely shy.
    I don’t care if Barron is autistic or not. Melania and Donald seem to be doing an amazing job raising him, and he’s very handsome. I just wish him all the happiness and health.
