White House asks for privacy from media on Barron Trump


Immediately there was backlash, with former White House kid Chelsea Clinton even coming to Barron's aid, tweeting, "Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter", read a statement from the White House website.

Most notably, a tweet from an SNL writer joking about the 10-year-old Trump being America's "first homeschool shooter" (which she apologized for) led to her being suspended from the show. "From a certain celebrity attempting to diagnose him with a neurological disorder with her degree from "The University of Google" to now, when a writer from Saturday Night Live chose to tweet saying that he would be the "first homeschool shooter".

The writer later apologised on Twitter, saying her actions were "inexcusable".

A person familiar with the situation tells NPR that the suspension was levied shortly after Rich's tweet during Friday's presidential inauguration, and that the suspension is indefinite.

Other social media users slammed Rich for targeting the child, with some calling her a "piece of trash" and others calling for a boycott of NBC, which airs SNL.

The writer was quickly suspended by the popular American TV show after the post, reported Entertainment Weekly.

"Joey" complained: 'Attacking a 10 year old? You should be fired for even thinking that was remotely amusing'.
