Rosie O’Donnell Defends Autism Remark about Barron


Rosie O’Donnell released a message to her website fans on Saturday, stating that her tweet about Barron Trump possibly being Autistic, had nothing to do with her hatred of President-elect Donald Trump.

According to Dailymail.U.K, Rosie O’Donnell released a video in a tweet of Barron Trump clapping on Monday implying that Barron may be autistic. She was slammed for days on every social media outlet and venue by angry and disgusted readers. O’Donnell is trying to backtrack, insisting her post was “from the heart”. She added, ” I have no ill will for his children, or any children.”

Dailymail U.K. stated Rosie defended her statement about Barron in a separate tweet where she said: ‘I didn’t make the video, I watched it, and I found it compelling.

‘Not my movie clip. Lots of us, who raise autistic children, notice things many would miss. Somethings felt familiar.’

She added the hashtag ‘NoshameAUTISM’.

The video bases its assumption of Barron’s health on observations of his behavior throughout his father’s campaign.

Rosie wrote this statement on her website.

Here is how it went down. My 3.5 yr old daughter Dakota was diagnosed in September with HFA – high functioning autism. I have been immersed in that world/reality since. learning – reading – asking questions, It’s all autism – all the time for the newly diagnosed as we try to grab onto anything to keep us standing. The knowledge we r not alone, there r others living this too. When I saw the anti bullying video that mentioned Barron it spoke to the symptoms many ASD kids have it was educational and informational. These symptoms so many do not understand– I thought – how amazing IF it is true. IF it is true – I tweeted from my heart. It would help so much with the autism epidemic. 1 in 55 kids is an epidemic. Donald and I agree on that and not much else. I feel he is a clear and present danger but this autism subject had nothing to do with Donald. Though I admit he does trigger me in all ways. I have no ill will for his children –or any children –and if u knew anything about me –u would know that. Donald does not have the power to change the facts to re write history so speak true – stand tall. THE WORLD IS WATCHING. For those who felt me a horror what can i say humans we try our very best and fail often. Peace out as we try to save democracy from this madman who thinks OUR country is his.”

The Trump family has not commented on the matter and continues to remain silent.
