The internet is filled with suggestions that Trump’s son, Barron, might be autistic. This is the video that was first released:
Rosie O’Donnell suggested that Barron might be autistic, and if so, Trump could use this as an invaluable opportunity to bring attention to this tragic condition that afflicts many children.
Melania Trump has threatened a suit over the video, and accused Ms. O’Donnell of being a bully.
O’Donnell responded by saying she was moved to post the video because she found it “educational and informational,” and that her own 3-year-old daughter Dakota had been diagnosed with high-functioning autism in September.
The creator of the video said he will take down the video, as well as issue a retraction and an apology. The person behind the controversy says he was diagnosed with autism when he was five and wanted people to stop bullying Barron for his “weird behavior.”
“I never ever meant this as a bullying video.”
Autism rates were 66 percent higher among children born to dads over 50 years of age than among those born to dads in their 20s. The higher risk associated with fathers over 50 is consistent with the idea that genetic mutations in sperm increase with a man’s age and that these mutations can contribute to the development of autism. There is also a higher incidence of autism in children born to parents who has a significant age disparity …such as 36 and 60, a 24 year gap. Thus we can understand why Donald might be sensitive about his son being labeled autistic, as Trump’s sperm might have genetically mutated which might tend not to make America great again”!
