The internet is dad-shaming Donald Trump over his son Barron

Donald Trump is undoubtedly one of the most divisive people in the world, with his controversial quotes never failing to make us face-palm on the regular.

There was the time he said he should get a Nobel Prize, his tribute to Aretha Franklin when he claimed she ‘worked for him’ and of course his statement that the queen had the most fun in years during his UK tour.

This month however it was his parenting that made people cringe as the President of the United States got called out not once but twice.

Earlier this month, Trump appeared to snub his daughter Tiffany on her birthday, as he posted birthday greetings to the U.S. navy but failed to mention his youngest daughter, who turned 26-years-old.

This week it was Trump’s youngest son, Barron, who was the focus of the accusations against the president, as the 13-year-old appeared to be one of the only people missing from Trump’s entourage at the World Series.

Twitter seemed to be outraged - with users taking to the platform to call him out.

‘Wait, did Trump really not bring Barron to the game? Or his grandchildren?’, Tweeted one viewer, while another posted: ‘Imagine being a kid and your dad takes Lindsey Graham to the World Series instead of you’.

Trump is yet to respond - but knowing his love of Twitter, we’re sure he’s about to.
