Rosie O’Donnell Berated for Asking Is ‘Barron Trump Autistic?’ (Video)

Rosie O’Donnell is under fire for sharing a video linking Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son, Barron, to autism.

“Barron Trump Autistic?” she tweeted earlier this week. “If so — what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic [sic].”

The video, which you can watch below, has been viewed over 1.2 million times on YouTube since being uploaded on Nov. 11.

“Donald Trump’s youngest son Barron Trump might be autistic, and it’s time for people to stop bullying him for his “strange” behavior. Let’s follow Melania Trump and #StopTheBullying,” the video description reads.

The seven-minute video points to several of Barron’s mannerisms, captured on camera during the few times he’s appeared on TV, as evidence he may be autistic.

“His hands are moving erratically and aren’t touching each other,” text reads over footage of the boy clapping for his president-elect father. “Then he was spotted making strange movements in his seat, typical in children with autism.”

After cutting to a video of a man making fun of Barron’s mannerisms on stage next to Trump the night he was declared the president-elect, text reads, “This bullying is absolutely unacceptable, whether he has autism or not.”
