President Donald Trump and wife Melania’s only son Barron has stayed out of the spotlight for quite some time, but as photos recently surfaced of the 14 year–old, many have started to poke fun at Barron’s unusual height on Twitter. 

Barron is 6’3″ and standing next to his father, he looks like a giant. Daily Mail tweeted a photo of the family that highlighted Barron’s height with the caption “Trump Tower.” The tweet read, “Barron Trump, 13, stands head and shoulders over his parents as they head to Mar-a-Lago.”

Twitter used @BOS_jw compared Barron to the cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants. He said, “How Barron trump be looking.”

Many started to dream up possible futures for the president’s son. Barstool News Newark tweeted, “Barron Trump is going to be the greatest dunker the NBA has ever seen.”

Some even speculated that Trump was not the biological father to Barron and that Melania must have had an affair. @cuzkristoff gave an explanation to Barron’s seemingly unnatural height and said, “That’s bc Trump is not his father,” and then attached an article relating backing up that argument.

Barron has previously been made fun of by the media. In 2017 comedian Katie Rich tweeted that, “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.” 

This prompted Barron’s disappearance from the public eye and a statement from the White House that read, “It is a longstanding tradition that the children of presidents are afforded the opportunity to grow up outside of the political spotlight. The White House fully expects this tradition to continue.”  

In 2019, Prof. Pamela Karlan made a statement about Trump’s son during the impeachment trial. She said, “The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the President can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”

To this Melania tweeted a response. She said, “A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”

Published reports have suggested that famously competitive president is jealous of his son’s height.
