Melania Trump Comes Out Victorious Involving Her Dispute With Rosie O'Donnell

A video from a YouTube user that speculated Barron Trump may be autistic has been removed. As Us reports, the user has offered up an apology after receiving a strongly-worded statement from an attorney representing future First Lady Melania Trump.

James Hunter, who says he is autistic himself, posted the video in a bid to ward off any bullying attempts at the child. He pointed out specific instances in his behavior that he believed were possible signs of autism, but the video had the opposite effect. Rosie O’Donnell took it upon herself to retweet the video, and it subsequently went viral. That prompted some strong words from Charles J. Harder, an attorney representing Trump.

“This law firm represents First Lady–elect Melania Trump and her 10-year-old son, Barron Trump. A video was posted at YouTube recently speculating that Barron might be autistic. He is not,” Harder said in part.

It was demanded that the video be removed, and Hunter complied.

"I never ever meant this as a bullying video. As someone who was diagnosed at age 5 and has gone through bullying myself, I would NEVER do something like that. I made this because I truly believed Barron was on the spectrum, and I wanted people to stop bullying him over his 'weird' behavior and explain to them that it might actually be due to a condition. ... I have a great respect for [Melania] and her family. I never meant to hurt anyone," Hunter said.
