Barron Trump Reenters Spotlight

It’s not easy being a kid in the White House. Just ask Chelsea Clinton. Or Malia Obama. Or...you get the idea. Barron Trump is the latest one that has to deal with the fact that his parents are two of the most famous people in the entire world.

Children of sitting presidents become instant celebrities, and they really don’t have much say in the matter. There’s a natural fascination attached to the First Family, and the youngest member of the clan will receive more than their fair share of attention.

In Barron’s case, he has mainly been under the radar outside of a few appearances here and there. You can be sure that’s by design, as some of the commentary and chatter that revolves around children of presidents is on the incredibly unsightly side.

While it would be lovely to assume that children of politicians are off limits when it comes to political chatter, there are far too many folks out there that don’t respect those boundaries.

That’s not exclusive to the Trump White House either. We saw that play out with his recent predecessors, as there were a ton of outrageous things being bantered about in regards to their children.

In fact, it continues to this day in some cases, and we can expect the same fate to befall Barron when his family leaves the White House. In short, the poor kid is doomed in terms of ever being able to get some privacy.

Barron has somewhat reentered the spotlight as the holiday season is here. There’s a number of traditional events associated with the season at the White House, and he’s been taking part in a number of them.

As Newsweek shares, he was on hand for the delivery of the official White House Christmas tree. The tree itself is quite a sight to behold, as White House grounds superintendent Dale Haney noted earlier this year.

"The size and the shape, the color, great trunk," Haney said.

"It's going to look awesome...it’s good all the way around. The whole thing is a front, and I can just see it make the holiday season for the White House."

Barron’s appearance did not go unnoticed, as there were plenty of photos and videos making the rounds on newscasts and social media.

“The @WhiteHouse has its Christmas tree! @flotus & Barron just accepted delivery from Silent Night Evergreens in Wisconsin,” shared one user.

While it comes with the territory of being in the White House, one can’t help but wonder what it must be like for the young man to have to process the fact that even the simplest things he does will attract an inordinate amount of attention.

Thankfully, there doesn’t seem to be too much in the way of negative chatter going on in regards to his recent appearances. Perhaps many observers picked up on the advice of Chelsea Clinton from earlier this year, as she noted that it’s "high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves."
