Why can’t they leave the kids alone?

I could honestly write a book about Democrats and their double standards.  I really could. So, ever since Trump was elected, leftists have said vicious things about Trump’s wife and children.  Most of his children are adults (Ivanka and I are roughly the same age), except for Barron, who is ten years old.
