Chelsea Clinton rushed to the defense of Barron Trump, victim of a “joke” by a liberal journalist. The Daily Wire reports:
Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton again rushed to current First Son Barron Trump’s defense, chastising New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait for putting Barron front and center in a joke about potential candidates for White House Chief of Staff.
Chait tweeted Monday night that the only acceptable replacement for outgoing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is Barron, largely because as a minor he’s not likely to be “tried as an adult” for whatever crimes Chait imagines are being committed in the Oval Office.
Chelsea immediately fired back at Chait for his “joke.”
Please leave Barron Trump out of “jokes” & analyses. He’s a kid and private citizen and deserves to be left alone. Thank you. https://t.co/wDvfMo59vV

Chelsea Clinton is obviously no fan of President Donald Trump, but she has been an outspoken advocate for First Kids, curbing some journalists’ often irresistible urge to attack even the pre-teen Trump (she also heads off criticism of both Sasha and Malia Obama, who have long left the White House but who are regularly the subject of gossip stories).
This is not the first time that Chelsea Clinton has defended Barron. This stems from her own harsh experience in the White House as a child of a President under extraordinary public scrutiny during her father’s impeachment.
